How long do you give someone to pay before relisting?

Postby Timbo85 » 12 Apr 2018, 12:31

What's the etiquette on re-listing an item if someone hasn't paid may I ask?

I sold a team to giochil_6 (Max Abet from Napoli - maybe he's on this forum?) on 1st April and despite messages haven't had payment yet..

Cheers.

He's a known non payer, so don't hold your breath. Chris

Just raise as unpaid item with eBay, he's unlikely to pay, so you can then relist after a few days following eBay clearance. I find its best to raise as unpaid item after minimum period of 4 days (I think), then genuine folk pay immediately, and non payers don't keep you waiting for too long.

on third day after payment I remind them.
if I don't get any reply at all I would relist after 7 days

Sold to giochil a couple of weeks ago. Nothing.....but too busy to relist, then out of the blue - payment yesterday. Is patience the answer? Is the pace of life slower in Naples? Hoping the parcel gets through ok

Might be an idea to send the parcel recorded delivery, just in case he claims for non-delivery. He has a history of not paying / not communicating with the seller, so he would be a higher risk for claiming parcel never arrived. Chris

Anyone had any experience with 'tonlas-0' (Tony Last, address Norfolk)?

I sold two LW teams for about £30 combined which apparently didnt get there - waited a couple of weeks. Admittedly I didn't send these recorded but have never had an issue before and just had to give a refund. Of course could be legit post balls-up but you do wonder..

no but here is my tip never post anything you've sold anywhere without recorded delivery it just isn't worth it.

as above, its your Willy Wonker golden ticket of proof to paypal and ebay you even sent it. In a claim they shouldnt take the money from your account after jury.

HOWEVER...Recorded del dosent mean postie will wait for a sig and this happens a lot in the uk, or even leave a ticket and just dump it

I think posties should be held accountable for this EVERY SINGLE TIME they do it, and fined wages as it's their f ucking JOB to do it. :angry: :angry: :angry:
If they don't want to do the damn job properly give it to someone that does. The shi tstorm their idleness creates is immense :angry:

every parcel i get here i always ask ''potrebujete podpis?'' (do you need a signature) as some other bloke is in same boat as me.

Recorded Delivery on anything is a waste of time now in the UK, they will only cough a max of £20 if it goes missing, plus it is not tracked as it goes along like Special Delivery, where it is recorded on line at each stage of its journey.
However, recently Ebay have been coming down in favour of Sellers more, when an item goes missing, where the seller has proved that they have indeed shipped the item.

As you know here, only with Special Delivery can you do that and you get £500 insurance cover, with Recorded Delivery all you get it,
Your Item is in the process/system, £20 coverage and no way of knowing where it is.
