Sigh, I just need to rant a little. So last month I sold 2 pairs of shoes, the bidders promised to pay, first one promised the payment after she "got herself together" because her brother died at her house. I said I completely understood and that she should contact me when she was ready to pay. I waited 2 weeks and had emailed twice and she never responded. Well after a little more searching into her feedback via toolhaus, apparently she always gives excuses when it comes time to pay. So I filed an NPB alert, she didn't respond and I got my fees back (she's now NARU since that was her third strike). Second pair of shoes...buyer wins, next day she emails me saying she saw she won and she'd send the payment via paypal the next day. I say ok, then a couple more days go by and no payment. I send another invoice and this time she says she'll pay via check. Of course, no check ever arrived. I file an NPB alert, she doesn't respond, I got my fees back on those. Now AGAIN, 2 buyers bid on my auctions that ended last Saturday. One was from Mexico and had contacted me before (a couple emails a day) asking how much to ship the item there, etc. He wins, I send numerous invoices and an email and nothing. I emailed again tonight saying that on the 7th day, I'd be filing an NPB alert. And a lady won a top I had up, she has good feedback, I didn't think I'd have a problem. Sent invoices after she won, emailed and haven't heard a thing from her. I emailed her again tonight saying the same thing I had also sent to the man from Mexico about the NPB alert so we'll see what transpires from these two sales. I don't expect people to contact me the minute they win an auction, but IMO this is way too long. I'd appreciate at least an email telling me that they even intend to pay at all. I'm just so sick of NPB's lately, I went for at least a year without any problems, now a bunch are showing up all at once. It's not like the things I sell are even expensive at all, I just hate when people bid up a storm then when it comes to paying, they disappear.
