Trading diapers for a gift card?

What should I do? This is on the BG B/S/T page and I haven't had any problems there before but I'm nervous. Has anyone else done this before?

Just trying to understand the best way to do this.

I just did it last week, she sent me shipping $$ via PayPal and then gave me the numbers in the card. I confirmed card, printed her label and then immediately spent the card balance that day while waiting for the mailman to pick up her package.
Not ideal but it worked out for us. If the other mama can fund her PayPal with the gift card and then send you the money, that would be better, but it's usually not doable.
She also mailed me the card just in case I had issues with the online store I had used it at, but I didn't.
PayPal backed trade is better and preferred, but I've done them without and never had any issues. Though I know people do get scammed.
I'm not being a lot of help here, it comes down to trusting your gut,

Can she maybe paypal you the money and then once the transaction is complete then you can refund? That way you are both covered. You hold the funds till she gets the diapers and you get the card? Either that or can you each paypal each other the value of the card so they cancel out but you both could open a claim if the other doesn't follow through?
