Thumbs down Silver Bullet

This person agreed to sell me a set of parts, and subsequently sold them less than 48 hours later (Fri. afternoon to Sun. morning) to another buyer without even so much as attempting to contact me to see if I was even still inerested. The notification of my refund was extremely patronizing, and when I sent an e-mail in an attempt to resolve the problem, I got no reply. Instead of making an attempt to rectify the situation, he placed a very large, very colorful disclaimer in his 'parts for sale' thread, effectively refusing to own up to his mistake.

A very poor way to conduct business, IMHO.

1. member expressed interest in part.
2. Seller sent payment information.
3. No further contact from member.
4. Waited 2 days and assumed NO SALE.
5. Another member expressed interest.
6. Sent payment information.
7. Received payment immediately.
8. Shortly there after, receiving payment from first member.
9. Promptly refunded money to first member and appologised for inconvenience and stating that item was sold to another member due the assumption that no payment was to be received from them after no contact for 2 days.
10. First member now upset because Seller wouldn't resolve something there was no resolution to.
11. THE END

if you dont communicate correctly.... someone else has the right to jump in if they have the $$$$ arround and send it promptly. i would have given it to someone who gives me the $$$$ quick than to sit and wait arround for something "magic" to happen. i think if you would have given silver bullet the exact info how and when you were going to send payment..... i dont see why he wouldnt have waited.

I am all about fair trading. I base my trades on my reputation to do great business. I just don't think it's fair to me as a seller to sit and wait when I don't know the status of the sell. If I don't have the communication from the buyer on all levels, then I don't have a sale. Someone who tells me they are ready to pay. Should pay as soon as they have sellers info. It might be different if I didn't have about 10 pm's a day about the items i sell. But when there is a line of people waiting, I have to do business. Not wait on it.

I don't think Silver Bullet was wrong at all, provided there was no agreement to "hold" the part for a specified time.

For me, if someone expresses interest in a part, but doesn't respond (i.e.: sends payment) within a reasonable timeframe (6-12 hours), then that part is back on the open market.

You got your cash back... no harm no foul.
