Can I set a meeting location for an item instead of shipping it?
Yes. When Sellers list a product, they can leave the Shipping Cost blank. This will default the Shipping to Local Pick Up. When Sellers post an item, in the Short Description, please state what School District(s) you are willing to meet the buyer in for a local pick up. Buyers and Sellers can message each other through the site and can set up an exact location after a purchase is complete. GoodBye Toys does not recommend publishing your address on the website. We do recommend meeting at safe locations (police departments, fire stations, etc).
