Hey Guys, the topic says it all. I´m interested how long you are willing to wait for a payment, if someone ordered LDs from you here. Or to be more precise, if communication is slow, and nothing happens on the buyers side (no payment, no more mails),when is your personal limit reached and you say: OK, thats it, I´m going to cancel this.
I just don´t get it, when I order something here, I want to have it , right ?So the first thing I´m doing is to pay, so that those Discs start flying in...Ok, excited to hear your stories.

Some bitchez use the benefit of the doubt as their wanted item reserved tool. Maybe they want it bad but don’t have the means to pay for it. Purchase option removes it from your for sale list so it is no longer available for anyone else to scoop it up. Then they will stall with you with lame excuses and slow responses (leaving you wondering).

I say give 3 days unless an arrangement is agreed upon.

Max time for me waiting for payment is 7 days.
On ebay I report the buyer after 7 days.
Sometimes that wakes people up and they finally pay.
Maybe you could report the non payer to the admin?

It has been my great fortune to have patrons that pay directly without delay.
Very few and far between have there been no pay orders. For the most part, noobs to the membership are the ones that order and then no contact, no payment, and usually no explanation.

I chalk it up to doing business sight unseen through the inter-webs.
99% of the members pay post haste in my experience. Very glad to report that as my experience at the LDDB.

Cheers,

My question is, how many times do people actually buy the item if they ask questions??

I would say 10 out of 10 people who ask questions never actually buy from me on ebay, sometimes its a 9 out of 10 but usually its a 100% ask question = never buy.

About ebay and the questions being asked about articles, i guess I never sold a single article to somoeone who asked anything about it before...well, 1 in 1000 maybe, can´t remember, haha..so I´m here with rein-o. Thanx for your replies on my question, yes, I guess I´m sometimes too friendly like asking politely "when do you wish to pay" or stuff like that.
Noobs were mentioned here, making orders and then nothing. Maybe it would be better, if it´s mandatory to new members to introduce themselves or have a few postings here on the forum, before they are able to order stuff. This idea was just crossing my mind, I´m not sure if it would change anything. I just had a case where the e-mail of the noob was incorrect, so no contact possible for me, obviously he never attempted to reach me.

I'm gonna start a threat titled "How long are you Buyers out here waiting for invoices?"

Fully 75% of my requests for invoices go unanswered. Maybe sellers are doing so well they take a lot of vacations.

Well, I´m one of the 25%. Yes, I agree, that this must be annoying, when you order something and get no invoice. Though, that problem I never had. I guess I was lucky meeting sellersa that WANT to sell their stuff.

I never had that problem either, thought I tend to make orders from the stores with larger inventories.

That's why I close the shops when the owner/seller hasn't logged in in 6 months...

Don't hesitate to post a neutral/negative feedback ("Seller never contacted me"/"Still waiting for an invoice"/etc.) to let others and myself know that something is not working as expected. I read all the feedbacks posted to detect any signs of trouble.

Among real-life situations, this usually involves:

  • Seller gave up/sold as a lot/changed email and won't bother reply => shop will get closed and/or seller's rights removed
  • Invoice arrived in the SPAM folder
  • Email server lost emails
  • Health/Personal issues
