Does this happen to or annoy one else? On Deadformat, people message me questions about my records being available or to make an offer, and then never respond to any of my follow up messages. Srsly, wtf? It also started happening on here, which is arguably worse because I can see when the other person reads the message, opposed to DF where you can only see when someone has been online. I typically send a follow up message after a couple days, and then another in a week or so. It's especially bad since I can see when the person has also read those messages! You took the time to read the message, but can't respond? Man. Then on Discogs, a buyer isn't sending his/her payment. That happens to me on eBay quite often and it's especially annoying on there since I have to wait for the unpaid item case assistant to open, and then close a few days later, and relist the item. The situation seems easy to take care of on Discogs, but still. Rather obnoxious. Like c'mon, how hard is it to send a message saying you are no longer interested or can't buy it anymore?! Commence venting, but exclude names.
Okay so I'm leaning toward refunding a transaction, dude bought a rare, pretty expensive record through Discogs, Signed up same day he bought it, checked out w/o even asking a shipping price and then was fine w/ the $17 int'l cost. I invoiced him, and he said he tried to pay but he was unable, I've bought a bit off Discogs, but not sold much yet, so I'm not sure if this can actually happen, but it never happened to me when buying. But just in case I sent another invoice, he said the same thing plus he called paypal and that they told him I'd have to invoice him manually, so I did this through pp and he said he couldn't pay cause his transaction was flagged, so he called pp again, they told him the transaction was flagged at random, not cause there was anything wrong with either account. I said forget the invoice just use 'send money' and make sure to send as payment for goods and I would cover the fees. The money appeared but he sent it as a gift, and said via email that's the only way it would work and asked me to cancel the invoice I'd sent. Is this even possible? Dude had no feedback so I was thinking of chipping an extra $4 just to get tracking but I don't think tracking is even any good if he claims unauthorized transaction. I do *not* want to be out the record and the money. Thinking of just refunding the guy, so I sent him an email explaining that I might have to issue a refund because paying as a gift does not provide seller protection.
