Purchasing Main canopy with unknown jumps

Question

Tried looking for this post before I posted it couldn’t find any so if there’s already some with the same exact question I apologize, wanted to know if it’s a dumb idea to buy a main with unknown jump numbers? Will have a rigger inspect it but it’s in another country  shipping is kinda pricey along with the pay pal fees will add up. Appreciate any feedback you guys might have, also if anyone had good or bad luck with the same situation. Thanks

It's a gamble, if the price reflects it then it may be a great buy. 

Do the photos look ok?
Can you see defects in close up view?
Ask to see the lines in close up view for the high wear area? especially the brake lines around the ring, the lines around the Slinks, etc...
Is there discoloration of the center cell compared to the ones next to it? Could indicate sweat got into the fabric and affected the fabric.
Did you get to see a video?

Show the photos to a rigger, then decide if it's worth it shipping it to you.

Use Transferwise instead of Paypal. Same protection, less fees.

Don't forget about customs import fees in your calculation. These will vary according to country of origin and price paid.
