What are the needed criteria for providing a new safe and trustworthy internet market website service.
-Seems one of the most important things would be to have each seller verfied thouroughly. Driver's license and social security registered somehow? Maybe, mybe not.
-Maybe certain members of the service are elected to provide an independent third party for evaluation/ additional certification. Again, I don't exactly know how this would happen.
-All money is first sent to a third party trust where the seller cannot access it til he/she delivers the product and the product is okay'd by the buyer.
These are just off the top of my head and I realize they may not be practical.

Well, if you're thinking entrepeneuring an new business endeavor, it's got to be a marketplace people will go to. Ebay's kind of got the internet auction market cornered. The only other one I've heard of is www.propertyroom.com and that's a government thing. So you need to somehow pull people to your site in a way that ebay doesn't, because honestly, I like ebay, and I think most people who use it like it. You have to be careful, sure, and you have to approach it with a suspicious and critical eye, but I've never had a hassle with it in the many trades I've made.
