    Ever had a scary experience trying to sell or buy something on-line? We have just released a new concept paper on opportunities for the Postal Service in the fast growing peer-to-peer market that could improve safety and enhance trust in such transactions. From issuing digitial identities to providing digital escrow or digital COD services, the Postal Service could play an important role in working with shopping facilitator sites such as Craigslist and eBay to make today’s peer-to-peer market a more secure place to do business.

    The Postal Service already conducts identity proofing and mails millions of ecommerce items bought and sold through peer-to-peer sites. Do you think this is a promising area for USPS? Let me know.
