p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Leaving Negative Feedback for failed deal


Is there any way to leave negative feedback for someone who agrees to buy your lens (twice) and then backs out right before shipping? Everything was negotiated and settled, I take it to the PO to get it weighed to determine shipping.. labeled and packed all ready to go and the guy backs out to buy something else.

Is there any recourse here in that situation? It really stinks.

The feedback system is really only meant for completed transactions, so even though it stinks to have wasted your time with this individual, posting feedback for a transaction that never occurred would be inappropriate.

If you haven't already done it, send him a PM and tell him that.

Of course I gave him a piece of my mind.... not much satisfaction in that. :/

I had a sale of a Canon 300/2.8L IS fall through in 2011, when the buyer refused to pay the state sales tax and brokerage fee charged by FedEx when it crosses the border from Canada to the US, where he lives. This was despite the fact that I told him up front to expect these charges, I provided an accurate estimate of what they would be, and he agreed to pay them.

I was miffed, but what could I do? No way that I wanted to kick a sheep storm on FM, and so I just moved on. I later sold the lens on eBay, where the buyer can't back out of a sale so easily. In fact, that's why I gave up selling on FM.

Yes.. i wrote several scathing posts and erased them all. The thing is, I've had such a hard time finding a serious buyer on this lens because it is a Sony mount. ugh. The ONLY reason he backed out is the day I was to ship it, someone contacted him with another lens he wanted more. I get it, but he had a deal with me, and there should be a consequence for backing out of it after you have it all settled.

Thanks

Be patient "blutch"! It has taken me awhile to sell some of my gear after 10 years here. I have had some deals like yours believe me but don't let it get you down.
Good luck! The right buyer will come along!

I hear you blutch. I've been a seller on ebay and craigslist for many year and I learn to deal with this.
Sale is not final unless is paid, first come first serve and I don't wait for the guy said I'll take it and will come to pick up at ____time. If buyer agree to buy give him an hour window to pay. Buyers who offer me over the phone without seen the item have 15mins windows to paypal me the full amount otherwise the deal is off, that is if I agree to the offer. Wishy Washy means snooze you loose.

Buyers will always change their mind the last min. so my method works pretty good so far.

Thanks for that. The only delay in him paying was me finding out the actual shipping costs.. I went first thing in the morning the next morning (we made the deal about midnight) and got him the information. I knew something was up when he didn't get right back to me. He was hot to trot the night before.. I should have just estimated shipping and had him pay me. Oh well.. live and learn!

Sorry to hear that, OP. It stinks even more since it happened twice.
