eBay Rant

Why do people win auctions and not pay for them? I’ve never understood this and never will. Every time I win an auction I’m genuinely excited to add the card to my collection and pay for it immediately. The only exception is if I win something while I’m asleep or out of town. My payments may take up to 12 hours in those cases, never longer.

I got a message from a buyer tonight that made me laugh. The buyer paid today for an auction that ended on November 4th, that’s twelve days from auction end to payment. The total including shipping was $12.16. The buyer had the audacity to leave me this message after they paid – “I am very, very Sorry for the delay. Thank you for the great card. Please lmk when you ship it, I need this by Sunday for a Birthday present. Thank you again

You’ve got to be kidding me, right? You wait twelve days to pay and then ask for the item to be sent right away!? Of course, I’m going to send the card tomorrow because I also ship all items that I sell promptly. In cases like this I opt to not leave any feedback for the buyer. I won’t leave a negative because they did end up paying, but I’m certainly not going to leave a positive either.
