Default Payments for shipping firearms. What is right?

I currently have a deal going to ship a handgun to a buyer. He would like to do a split payment in which full payment is delivered upon a successful FFL transfer of the firearm to him.

Is there any way I as the seller, who is shipping to the FFL for transfer, have any way to stop the transfer if full payment is not received?

Calguners that have shipped, what are your normal ways of doing things?

Full purchase price plus shipping costs upfront is the norm in my experience.

You would have to make sure the receiving FFL would go along with those terms before doing anything. They confirm that you received all said money before starting the transfer. If the FFL is their buddy someone got a 50% discount. And guys get to play it out in court later.

^ +1 That is the way I have always done it buying or selling. I would wonder about his intentions if he feels the need for doing it that way.

Can't imagine an FFL would want to be the mediator of your potential pissing match with the buyer. I really can't think of a time I've had C.O.D.-like sale terms in any of the 1000's of online deals I've been a part of.

Your buyer's request is not typical and should be a red-flag for a potential P.I.T.A. transaction.

^This.

Personally I would not continue negotiations with the current prospective buyer.

At best he is new and nervous. At worst its a down right scam.
