What happens when you select "This is a physical item that requires shipping"
the reason i ask is, if i sell something does the buyer tell me his/her's address or do i have to put it in Buyer instruction part for them to tell me?

Always indicate your mode of transaction on your ads. If it's for pick up only or you also do shipping. Try to be detailed as much as possible so it would avoid misunderstandings with your possible customers.

To be fair, I think most of the products and/or services that are posted here tend to be electronic so I don't think there would be a need for them to state whether or not it requires shipping. I don't think I've ever seen a physical product listed on here actually.

Well, you shouldn't disregard those buyers who prefer to pick up their bought items instead of having it shipped.

Indicating mode of transaction would be just for formality sake when it's electronic services that is being sold. Shipping is most likely for physical products and it's very important to make available a detailed information to facilitate quick delivery to the destination.

I guess he also needs to take the initiative to ask for the customers address or require it on his ad or website. In this way, clients and customer will have confidence in him that he is committed to deliver the goods.

When you post an item for sale, you have to indicate the costs for shipping if you're willing to ship it or you just want meet ups only or pick up. You don't need to state the price immediately of the shipping costs, but you need to let the buyers know about it. When you do this, an interested buyer will ask you how much the shipping fee. And that's when you can ask where is their location? It's just a common thing to ask for this at this point.
Remember to be specific enough in your product description but leave enough details also so that the buyer will contact you and you can sales talk your product through inquiries.

It looks like you got your answer here. I think that buyers are likely to choose this option at times so understanding as much as you can about the process allows them to feel comfortable that you know what you are talking about when you interact with them.

What I do is to set up the payment and shipping options first then it goes automated; if someone is on the checkout counter he'll have all the options both payment and shipping where all data like billing address, shipping cost etc will be visible. It's the best and it's the only way of securing your ordering, payment and shipping system.

If you opt for a manual system then good luck! Done that before it gave me a bad headache. What will happen is buyers will be messaging you non stop 24/7 it's stressful and time consuming.
Just automate everything it's worth it.

It's only for products that are physical and you need to ship to the buyer. If you have a product or service that is strictly electronic like a review or tweeting out a message then you don't have to use that option at all. I don't think anyone actually sells any physical items on this site so I'm not sure why they even bother with that option, to be honest.

You are absolutely right about pointing out the nature of the service that needs address or shipping information. Physical products needs such information but once it's strictly electronic like a review or tweeting out a message, it's not required.

One thing about shipment of physical products from a place to another is that you really need to keep the form where the buyer will have to provide those details that is needed when you ship the products them. The thing is that you can't really know the address offhandedly and contacting an agent to be of help is another good thing you can do on such matter.

I believe that the issue of address of the buyer would only come up if it's a physical product that is being sold. An address should be make available to get such products to its buyers final destination. But if it's an electronic service, definitely there wouldn't be any need for address.

I think it depends on the product of the seller. Sometimes they will sell services with or without the physical product for example-- t-shirt design. They are selling services thru designing a t-shirt. This time I think they will indicate if you want their product which is the t-shirt with the design they did for you.That's what Iv'ed think about physical product requires shipping. That's just my opinion.
