This seems to be one of the days where I really wish that German Ebay had a serious competitor!
A few weeks ago, we troed to auction off an item that is too huge to ship it. You would need a truck to transport it. So we did not offer shipping and asked for the buyer to get it themselves or to find an express company.
We did not sell the item for the first time, but two people mailed us that they did miss the auction and are still interested. So we started the auction a second time and one woman bid and bought it.
That was over one week ago!
That woman did not react to any messages. I wrote her our telephone number and asked when she would like to fetch the item or if she had an express company in mind.
Today, I opened a case on Ebay for missing payment and guess what?
She answered that she will send the money (via bank transfer) soon.
ARGH! I emailed her again and asked what she plans to do and when to get that d*rn item.
I really do hope she calls or sends a message. I hate people who do this - annoy the hell out of me without answering any messages. I could bet that she did think we would ship the item to her with no cost. Reading the auction text and and all is probably too much to ask for. (Plus we ticked the box on Ebay that the item will NOT be shipped!)
We will see what this buyer will do, right? Can't wait for tomorrow *lol*
