Annoyed and need to vent: It's always a delight to have an auction end and ten minutes later receive a "you received an instant payment" email, right? Right. Well lately it seems like I've been getting buyers who pay me several days (even weeks) later or don't pay me at all. It's so frustrating because my auctions clearly state payment must be received within 48 hours of auction close. Well I made a listing on Monday and in the item description (in plain sight) I said due to nonpaying bidders, I am requiring payment to be made when auction closes. A little strict I know, but if they don't like it, they have the right to move on and buy from someone else. (Of course I understand if it turned out to be a few hours or so later because not everyone checks their email a million times a day like I do...lol.) So I get a best offer the same day and accept it and send off the invoice...and no payment. They next day, I send another invoice and...nothing from the buyer. I write her to say, please pay me as my auction states I require payment when auction closes. Nothing. So I relist the item, cause I'm pretty much sick of the crap and don't care about getting a negative feedback (which I haven't gotten yet). Of course THEN I get an email asking why have I relisted the item and if I changed my mind about selling to her. Argh!!! Then she says she will pay me in two days. In the meantime, I haven't taken my relisted auction down (just in case) and even received an offer for $100 more than I sold to the first buyer. Double ARGH! lol! I'm going to wait it out and see if she pays me first to do the decent thing. But I really feel like I shouldn't have to! What ever happen to the instant payers??? I mean, you can't go to a store, buy an item, and tell them you'll pay them 2.3 weeks from next Monday, because your Uncle's in town and you need your flush fund to entertain him while he's here... I'm just tired of it! Thanks for listening!
