I am sorry but it seems that most everybody on here is super flakey. I listed some thngs for sale, got tons of responses but had not 1 person come through eventhough there had been a lot chatting back and forth? This is annoying and I feel a big waste of my time. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there another website where I can list my items and possibly have better luck at finding someone to actually come through?

I’m pretty sure most of the people who look through the classifieds aren’t the same ladies who regularly post on the boards (although I know there is some crossover).
Have you tried Craigslist? Ebay? Brideshare was created by a former bee (Mrs. Meatball).
Hope you have better luck!

I’m sorry you feel that way. However, they probably didn’t want to hurt your feelings by saying it wasn’t what they were looking for. Possibly try Craigslist or Ebay.

I would recommend E-Bay or Craigslist.

I’m no sales professional, but I’d be willing to bet that one of the first rules of sales is “Don’t insult your potential buyers by flaming them on an internet forum.”

I’m sorry, but I don’t see how creating a post using the phrase “most people on here [are] FLAKES” is going to either help you sell items or encourage regular posters to provide you with actual helpful information.

You might have more luck after your wedding is over. I’m sure a lot of people would be hesitant to commit to buying something before it was used. I mean, how would they know what condition it would be in once your wedding was over. Plus, they would have to wait 4 months to even get it…
So maybe not so much flaky as savvy?

you are not alone! I had the same thing happen! Some even ask for invoices and then never come through. I understand opinions change, money situations change, etc. but sometimes it would be nice to just know that way you could relist or reoffer the item. If someone goes so far as to request an invoice I am hestitant to offer the item up in case something legitimate really did happen and they just needed more time.

Thanks to all the ladies who actually left me some informative info.
Calling someone flakey I don’t feel is being mean….what is mean is telling me you want something, me packaging it up with your address and all, and then never sending the payment. If that isn’t being a flake, then I don’t know what is.
And if someone isn’t truly interested, why bother contacting me? Don’t get me wrong, I am totally Ok with people contacting me to ask questions as they need to know what they are buying but when it gets to the point of someone saying they want it, asking how they can pay me through pay pal or getting my address to send me a check and then never hearing from them again is annoying. I don’t know about some of you but I have better things I can be doing with my time.
This post wasn’t meant to offend anyone, it was just a simple question to a situation I was a lil frustrated about. I was just hoping for some good feedback which I did get from some of you gals! Thanks ladies =)

When I sold stuff on here, I made sure to send people invoices through Paypal so I didn’t have to wait for a check. Made the payments come a lot quicker!

Coming from a buyers perspective, I have decided not to buy from here anymore because of a few bad experiences I had with sellers. I talked back and forth with one girl and we made a decision on shipping, etc. and then after ignoring me for a week she sends an email saying “sorry but she’s selling them to a canadian bride because after shipping, she’ll get more from that bride than me.” Others just stop replying. Maybe that’s why they never follow through with you. That, and maybe because you seem to be demanding and arrogant.

I have sold and purchased stuff through the Weddingbee classifieds and haven’t had any problems. So, I guess we aren’t all so flakey. It’s easy on the internet to say you want something and then never go back to it. If you want to sell things easier, then I would suggest ebay. I would also suggest waiting until after your wedding to sell things. I personally wouldn’t buy something that I won’t be getting for five months and have no idea what condition it ends up being in. Especially if that item is a wedding dress.
