- Wedding: January 2013
I’ve been stewing for a while and I just need to vent to SOMEONE! I have spent a good deal of money with fellow bees and I have had only a couple of bad experiances. Most of the sellers are honest and do what they say but lately it seems like I just come across people that can’t seem to keep their “word” and sellers that never send stuff that I buy (so I have to dispute it with paypal and WAIT for my money back).
My first “vent” is the sellers that don’t send their stuff, lie about sending it, say it came back “broken” (a MONTH later) and then eventually I get my money back. Or the ones that ignore you all together and won’t answer your emails once they have your money (this one put in fake tracking numbers just tonight with paypal dispute that don’t register and STILL won’t answer my emails).
My 2nd vent is just about rudeness. Maybe it’s just me (I would really like to hope not) but when you give your word on something, doesn’t that mean something anymore? If someone replies to you and tells you that your first in line for an item but needs your zipcode to check shipping, says they will write you back and then when YOU write them back they tell you they sold it to someone else, it just gets on my last nerve. Not so much because it was some great deal or steal but because I believe you should honor that and offer to that person first but didn’t.
These aren’t the first and I am sure they won’t be the last times I have problems with sellers and I do realize that there are a lot better good ones than bad ones but man why can’t we all just be the seller that we would want to deal with as a buyer?
I’ve sold stuff on here (from a previous wedding that was packed away) and NEVER ignored my buyers. Shipped when I said I would and even gave away a wedding dress with shipping at my cost to another bride!
Sorry for the irateness of the post everyone. Please don’t beat up on me to bad. It’s been a bad week, worse weekend and dealing with more inconsiderate buyers and paypal today just sent me over the edge! Hopefully everyone continues to have great experiances here on the bee. 🙂
