You should have kept your word unless it took him a day or two to get back to you. I don’t delist anything until I have the cash either. Might be a new seller.Seriously, have some level of class if you're buying/selling. The rudeness and name calling isn't needed.
If you don't have my money in your Paypal, I haven't "committed to buying" your item. Just because I messaged you saying I'd like to buy it, and then someone else with the same item messaged me back before you did, doesn't mean you get to chew me out.
I get that you might be annoyed, but ugliness isn't helping anyone.
Hell, I've probably had my share of bad communication in deals before, but that doesn't mean you need to be a jerk. If you de-listed your item just because I said I was interested, that's your problem. If I'm selling something, I don't take it down until I've got the cash in my account.
Stay cool, people.
blocked.... jk. I never thought of it that way. Back in 2012 pp gift was pretty standard here, things got more serious I understand. He never even mentioned buyer protection.So you were pissed he wouldn't break the Paypal User Agreement, and remove all protections for himself during the sale, and you think he did something wrong?!?!?
Agreed.This is what an honorable human does. When in doubt, imagine the transaction taking place face to face, with all parties present, and do the right thing.
It was never “standard,” just common enough to make a rule against it necessary. It was always frowned upon.blocked.... jk. I never thought of it that way. Back in 2012 pp gift was pretty standard here, things got more serious I understand. He never even mentioned buyer protection.
I get that I lost the sale in the negotiation.... he could have just said, "no pp regular" and I would be fine with it. Lost a ton $$$ on that parts guitar.
my bad guy
I suspect you are going to get a bunch of guys that disagree with you. Some people believe a man is only as good as his word.
I agree with that, big time, but it's all relative. I've had people tell me FOR SURE they are buying something. Comitted to price, terms, even went and got shipping quotes, and they only need to get paypaled for something else they've sold here to have the rest of the cash, and that the guy is sending paypal any minute for... then 3 days later say they've changed their mind. That is lame!Lol telling someone you’re going to buy something from them and reneging is lame.
Nah, that makes too much sense. This is TGP, buddy! Can’t talk like that here!Actually my system is a bit of both. If user 1 has said they will buy it, and I have agreed, and user 2 comes calling, I just say sorry, another user has said they will buy it, but if the deal falls through you’ll be the first to know.
I honour the first buyer even if the second offers more money.
If the first buyer walks away, no hard feelings. There’s f-all I can do, so no point getting upset about it.
What is a commitment? Did you guys exchange vows?I did not understand my ethical faux pas at the time, I had done lots of pp gift buying here when it wasn't "Against the rules"
My intention was not to be unethical. Guy said he would buy $1200 worth of parts for $680, I made a bad move I admit it, but he totally bailed on me after commitment to buy. Sorry guys. I only do pp regular now like a normal good person. Good to get some perspective on it now.
