(This is not from experience, but sometimes i have inquired about something and then backed out) The one problem about being a "Buyer" in the marketplace is that you have to beware. However this is another thing you have to be wary about. I find it hard to ask about something someone has (due to lack of info on the product) and in doing just that, you feel that you are required to buy it because.... "If you inquire and then back out, i will leave feedback saying you are a flake" (or something very similar) Now, I dont know about others, but it just makes me want to NOT buy from you, since obviously questions aren't welcome about your products. IE: say you find something that is really nice, its affordable and you PM the person and ask about shipping and price, maybe another pic. If your anything like me, you pick something up to buy it and look around more and after a while of holding the item you set it down and leave coz you really decided you dont want it and you really cant fully afford it right now. Why does making a logical, responsible decision make you a flake? Why does getting the specs and info on shipping and possible payments for something make you a flake when you decide that this purchase just isnt for you at the moment. Now i understand that if you cant afford something, then dont ask for it... but if you think you can what do you do? Life happens, and sometimes if you really want something, and you think that you will have the funds but something happens (if you have my bank this happens a LOT) why should you get further repercussions when you PM someone and say "I am sorry but i am gonna have to pull out" if they havent made payments, nothing lost, if they have made payments, if you post that its non refundable then you arent losing out on anything but they are. Why would you pour salt on the wound of someone who may have valid reasoning? (this has nothing to do with bad business, ie: sending a check and stopping it after the product was shipped, or likewise) What are your thoughts on this? Should sellers be able to post on someone's feedback when they didnt even fully sell to them? This is mainly for queries about harmless interactions between sellers and buyers when the sellers get upset at buyers when they find interest in something but back out.
