After a spate of dodgy communication, and flakey sellers, I thought I would throw this out there to all of you: What would be the perfect Marketplace etiquette? In other words, which essentials do you feel there should be during transactions to ensure that not only the buyer gets the most from an interaction, but the seller does too? These are my initial thoughts: Communication!: For me this is the killer. We're all busy, and that's fine. Take a day or so to get back to me - I don't mind. Just don't ignore me! I've had some people as sellers (or potential ones!) completely blank my PMs, possibly because they are waiting on a better deal. I GET this, but let me know! As a seller, I have also had buyers ignore me for days on end, and during that time other people have been interested in said item. For me, I can forgive a LOT if someone stays in touch. I'm fine with delayed postage, delayed payment, whatever - we're all human! Keeping your word!: If you know you're going to take longer to get the money together, then tell me outright before we start. Things happen, and I'm easy going when it comes to needing more time, but don't stick your head in the sand and pretend I don't exist! It won't go away. As a buyer, I've experienced this too. People who say they are going to sell, and then go back on their word because someone else came along who could offer them more, or the payment quicker. I understand if someone needs the money quickly, but don't tell me something is mine and then go back on your word. It's shoddy behaviour, you'll get yourself a bad reputation, and it's down right rude! Too bad if a better deal comes along after you've agreed. You're the one who gave the green light for the transaction. Item Description: We're had a thread about this lately so I won't say too much here, but PLEASE state any major flaws. And for the love of all things holy, please make sure your items are CLEAN. Tell me if you smoke! I think that's it for now. What do y'all think?
