So I listed stuff on eBay.
And naturally, there are people who refuse to PAY for the items they bid on.
Right after my auctions ended, I had one lady go, “I need to cancel my bid. I thought the item was 6-12 years, not months.”
First of all. Why WHY would anyone sell anything as 6-12 YEARS?
Second of all, the photo clearly showed a SMALL outfit.
THIRD of all, I mentioned in my description AGAIN that it was 6-12 MONTHS. (This was also in the title.)
Clearly, she’s lying. She either A) doesn’t have the money or B) bought another outfit and no longer wants this one. So she wants me to cancel.
I’m tempted to not. Why would I be punished because she can’t read properly or doesn’t want to follow the rules?
I still have two auctions that aren’t paid for. Granted, yes, I am polite and in my auctions I state that payment is due within 4 days of the auctions end. I’m too nice. What I SHOULD say is, “Payment is due within 24 hours.” Because hello, why not? If you don’t have the money to pay for an item right away, you probably shouldn’t be bidding on it in the first place.
I sent invoices to both buyers and nothing. Today marks 4 days after my auctions ended so I’ll be opening a non-paying customer case with eBay. Sometimes that gets the buyer to wake up. Other times you get an e-mail saying, “I’m sorry! I don’t have the money! Can you wait?”
I cannot wait. My auction clearly stated the rules.
I just don’t understand why people don’t use eBay correctly. Some do. I had 4 people pay quickly. Everyone isn’t bad on there.
But the ones who are? Ruin it for everyone.
