Kind of bummed out. Sold my first item on ebay, and the winning bidder isn't responding. Blah!

Key is "remind' - Just did this and the guy was like "oh sorry busy, paid". That simple. I've also people ask where there item is and they forgot they didnt even pay for it. Not everyone is as smart as us lol8[1].gif

Do you guys add people to the blacklist for non-payment? Is that too small of an infraction to warrant being listed?

I've never added anyone to the blacklist, where is it?

In regards to size of an infraction, I would blacklist someone for nonpayment under certain conditions. For instance, I had someone BIN on a Polo Corneliani wool/cashmere suit and then no payment, no response for two weeks. Finally, he wrote back and said he had forgotten he purchased and that the event he was buying it for was the night before and he didnt want it anymore.

Totally blacklist worthy.

I've never actually added one either, but mainly because, based on feedback, most of my buyers shop exclusively on ebay.de. You need to contact Brian for the blacklist, it's a google doc. To be honest, I've never actually looked in to how I edit it. Brian, care to weigh in or is his better suited to the dedicated blacklist thread?

Anyway, I'm curious now as I have a couple of buyers (one US based, another Russian-based) that would qualify as they both buy on ebay com (as opposed to .de or .at). One, however, is a longstanding member of ebay, I suspect he has an SF account, and he's definitely bought from people here before.

He bid and won an item of mine, asked to lower the shipping after the fact (normal for international buyers) and now I haven't heard from him for awhile. He has about 3 hours before I open a case against him. Not sure if I should/would add him to the blacklist.

Better for the blacklist thread, but yes I add all non-paying bidders. 97% of transactions go without a problem so if someone is in the 3% that does not pay or wants to return something b/c they are an idiot then they deserve to go on the blacklist. Why would anyone here want to have to deal with the small percentage who ruin it for everyone else.

EDIT: Never mind. Found it. Not sure how I missed that one until now.

Ditto - I add all non-paying bidders as well as anyone who returns something without a real reason (my returns are only for "not as described" - if they can't tell me how the item was not as described, it's a BS return).  I add them to the SF blacklist as well as my own eBay blocked bidder list, and also add other SF member contributions from the SF blacklist to my eBay block list.  I'm not sure if doing all this has actually saved me any grief in the end, but it's better than doing nothing I suppose, and only takes a couple of minutes.

Cross posting from the thrift thread, since I thought it might be more useful here. I picked up a NIB Conair Steamer today if anyone is interested in picking it up relatively cheap. If not I suppose I could just upgrade.

Finally broke down and got some decent mannequin forms on stands - jersey covered - not pinnable - but a huge step up from my dinky crappy hollow-back hanging male form.  Grabbed a male & female, since I do have some chick stuff that looks terrible on a male form.  Got them from Stamps in ATL - competitive prices and if you're in the area and don't want to make the drive, their shipping was totally reasonable ($18 to ship both via UPS, vs. me taking 3+ hours off on a weekday to go there & back).  

 

Aside to Wes: got two hundos for those Ben Silver's I PM'd you about - nice!

That's the brand I have and can say it works very well - heats up quickly, and the telescoping pole serves dual purpose as a place to hang a mannequin form if you're doing things on the cheap.  Compact & lightweight; takes up less floor space than a standard upright vacuum cleaner.  Someone should snag this.
