p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Buy & sell membership did not activate after payment


I purchased a buy and sell membership yesterday via pay-pal and noticed my B&S account did not activate immediately. I waited a while to allow some processing time and later messaged Fred with the details of my purchase. I haven't heard anything back and still don't have an active B&S membership. Anyone experience this before? Any ideas? Thanks!

It happens often that the B&S does not update for 3-4 days. I don't know why. Nevertheless, it will update as many of us have experienced here. Also, Fred Miranda is a working photog and is often away from the site doing that. PM him again can be useful, although by the time he gets back to you, your membership will likely have updated.

Two days have passed and my membership has still not activated. I've sent two PMs to FM and have yet to get a response. Hoping for the best, but I'm starting to loose hope.

Well, you can always PM Fred Miranda again and ask the Q "WTF is going on? I paid my money, I expect my goods, NOW. It's not like I'm a stranger here" FWIW, I've been in your situation and it never failed that I got activated. You can count on it that Fred is not about ripping you off. Not sure why your account has not been activated.

Yes, it is not immediate and may take some time because Fred is the only person that can do this I believe and he is a working photographer.
Now you have been around awhile is there something that I can help you with being that I do have U/S ON until your account is activated?
Just PM me......

I sincerely appreciate the offer. I have a fair amount of gear to sell and I'd hate to burden someone else with that responsibility.

My concern was due to post where Fred mentioned the membership should activate immediately.

Jayson, try PMing Steve T, the other moderator on the Wedding board. No doubt he can reach Fred if your need is urgent.

Fred has been active on the website. If your problem has not been straightened out, I suggest you look into how you paid, your username, where billed to,..... so on.....Did you get an acknowledgment from his billing company?

Hi Dan,

I used Pay-Pal. I PM'd FM on three occasions with my forum SN, PP email address (which is the same as my forum email address), and the transaction number. He's made absolutely no effort to respond. It's a shame that someone who's contributed to the community for years can be completely ignored.

I opened a dispute with Pay-Pal in November. Fred has not responded to the dispute and the case has been escalated to Pay-Pal at this point. I have my doubts that I'll ever see my money or a buy and sell membership. I actually expect to be banned at some point.

If anyone is looking for a nice D700 with grip, Spider Holster parts, or a nice ThinkTank Retrospective bag, pm me

That is very unlike Fred. He must have a reason but it would be nice to let you know what that might be. The fact that you have NOT received your B&S Upload Membership puts your refund in your favor. Don't dispare about your refund. I have had all my PP Disputes resolved in my favor and my money returned..eventually.
Sorry you had to go through this.

Dan
