Default question on general online sales. am i wrong for being a lil upset?

hi, im new here. been n car audio for almost 20 yrs, and addicted to bass even longer! just looking for insight on an issue. this was not done thru caco, this is a facebook deal.

i recently bought an amp from a facebook audio page. i conacted him and asked for paypal info, and within seconds i sent him the money. done, paid, ship to me right? well i ask him 3 days later whats up, and i guess we are waiting on it to clear on paypal, then wait for the transfer to his bank account so he can afford to ship.

my question is, do you think if you cant afford to ship, then you cant afford to sell? now, i understand that if it were mentioned in the ad that seller was in hard times and cant ship until this whole process is done, then i entered the agreement knowing that info.

its a blown amp, so its not like its putting me out or anything.. hoping i got a decent deal after repairs are made. supposed to be a beast of an amp!!!

for this exact reason, is why I got the Paypal debit mastercard.

I do agree tho, that if you don't have the funds to ship the amp, not right then and there but atleast next day, then you should hold out on selling equipment, just to save face.

The amount of scamming is at an all-time high right now getting closer to the holidays, and it'd just be in the interest of both parties

best thing paypal has to offer being able to immediately touch your own money. I have 2 card in case one messes up

OP- did you buy that hifonics?

nah.

many people depend on the cash to ship.
most seasoned sellers just print labels via paypal.

but.. things happen.. and it's wise not to ship at least until the payment clears paypal

this is just one hassle of buying the "best deal" from 'not the best seller' (yes, you need to be prepared for more disappointment)

even I have trouble getting a great box to ship big amps
also, after PayPal fees sneak up on you, as the seller, you start to freak out about the cost/loss of everything...so cheap starts sounding better... cheap is usually a flat rate box with insufficient padding.

sorry the headache isn't over

I've done eBay and used paypal for years. When I was in high school I figured the wait time for paypal to transfer funds to my bank account into the handling time. I wouldn't get too bent out of shape. If it takes him longer than 5 business days to ship I would probably open a case. Unless it's a new account that's the longest it should take. It should actually be closer to 3 days.

I'm very established on PayPal. His payment was n his account immediately. The hold up is waiting for it to hit on his personal bank account from PayPal.

And either way, it should be mentioned that there will be a delay in shipping.
