On ebay general rules are.. the more questions they ask, the more likely they are to return, force refund (through paypal), or fish for a partial refund (by threatening bad feedback). I imagine that applies on other places, though I know there isn't as much room to describe the item and your terms there. Though I would be willing to entertain anything within reason.
Yea sometimes I get a gut feeling from certain people and I just outright refuse them. I've never had return to date or scam or anything that bad.
oh wow, that seems like a lot. I'd kind of understand if the item was $1000+ and if they asked really nicely but that doesn't seem like it was the case. at least you were able to laugh about it :)
Was barely over 100$ lol. Initially when they asked I was like what are they serious? They better be buying it after all this. Then after about 45 minutes of silence I just laughed at
how ridiculous it was.
I had someone who was "very interested" in a figure so much so that they couldn't wait a couple hours for me to get home from class to remind me twice to give them a shipping quote. Tons of pictures later they asked me to take the figure out of the box again to further inspect. Once they confirmed, I packed her up and they ghosted which was the most annoying thing in the world. Dedicating time to a buyer and doing your best to please them (like you did) just to have them leave with no warning is insulting to say the least. I'd be way more understanding if they simply told me they didn't want it anymore.
Yea having your time wasted is the worse. I only pack it up after payment has been confirmed.
Similar experience on Facebook but lots of photos rather than a video asked me to hold the figure then never paid vanished on me. Same thing again on Facebook asked me for loads of photos then low balled me.
I hate when I get lowballed, like my already great deal wasn't good enough? It's almost insulting at that point.
