I joined less than 2 weeks ago and have made 6 purchases.  Each transaction has been smooth so far.  Sounds like you just came across an individual who was burned in the past.  I'd say move on and you'll find most people are easy to deal with.

Way to be cool, coolbeans!  I have been dealing with a lot of new members it seems and so far all of them have been good folk. Can't stand all these people coming on here just to bitch like bitches do.

Re: cant buy or sell Anything....despite

I'm with coolbeans!! Building my feedback thru dealing with whoever I can. Couple of little issues as of late but still feeling good. Had a "Learning Experience" to start with but not gonna pursue that! Also not dealing with the guy unless no other choice. Will eventually meet him and discuss his indiscretions personally.

Yes that's just one guy, Don't let him discourage you. Most will work with you if you maybe message them first if they have restrictions. Good Luck.

After being a member for a few years, I decided to put down the cost for a premium membership. Primarily to support the site, but also to shop. Too bad no one advertises or tells newbys, they have a cold chance in hell before actually being able to buy anything due to no feedback. Its like trying to find a job with no experience. Im not gonna buy crap I dont need just to gain feedback. Sucks. Im just venting, but honestly, this should be known before people buy a membership hoping to also buy stuff. I get why requiring feedback is done (although to require certain feedbacks to buy something doesn't really make much sense, especially considering most people getting ripped off, are getting robbed by veterans or people with so called established historys). I have seen the forums of people warning others about being scammed by certain members. Most of the time, the scams are being pulled by established members. I kinda feel duped. Its like buying a membership to sam's club then not being allowed in because you've never been allowed in. Automatically assuming new members are lying thieves and are deemed untrustworthy until they prove otherwise, not a very welcoming approach that encourages continued growth, and its flatout offensive. If the museum cannot or will not apply safeguards that makes it fair for everyone that has paid the associated fees, they need to tell newcomers that before taking their money.
My frustration stems from me wanting to buy a bike from another member for my son. I had zero problem paying full price. Then said member flatout ignores me and all of my messages, and I notice the reason is because I dont have X amount of feedback. If a premium membership is required in order to buy and sell, but you still cannot buy or sell even after having paid for the membership, that in and of itself, is dishonest....Just venting. But all in all, its not fair to find that out until its far too late that I paid for a service that is completely unavailable to me despite being told otherwise upon purchase. I guess ill just go back to eBay. good luck with your sales.

There is a lot of truth to what you are saying, not going to deny that, experienced it myself, but it is not just here, it is everywhere...

Re: cant buy or sell Anything....despite

Have any of these squeaky wheels tried sending a pm to sellers? "Hey man, I see that really cool ________ that you have for sale. I realize I may not meet the requirements listed but...". Some times a little sincere communication goes a long way.

Re: cant buy or sell Anything....despite

Selling to newbies can be a pain in the ass.  I have dealt with some recently who were easy to work with and i would gladly sell to them again anytime.  Bad thing is for each one of them it seems there are two or three who pop in ask a ton of questions, you respond to them in a timely manner, all there questions are answered and everything should be good to go on the transaction and then poof they are gone to never be heard from again.  I had a few incidents like this recently and am considering no longer dealing with newbs because of them.

From a sellers perspective if I am selling to a noob and they have little to no idea how transactions here work I will give them a clear and concise no questions asked summary of the process. That way they have the opportunity to back out if it's too much to handle. I'm also talking 20-50 dollar items for the most part...I haven't dealt with noobs on anything substantial dollar wise...

Re: cant buy or sell Anything....despite

Instead of venting and ranting lol maybe it shoulda been up to YOU to look into things. Maybe instead of being so but hurt that you feel like you lost 20 dollars, you could have realized that u don't need to be a pro member to buy stuff. Most of my feed back has come from before I was a pro member! So next time maybe educate your self!

Re: cant buy or sell Anything....despite

I wasn't a Pro Mem the first dozen deals and all were fine with it. Even did a $800 deal for a bike. Seller was cool as payment was paypal(NOT Frnd/Fam) and paid in payments(as agreed with seller). Did PM the seller First and posed the parameters of what was gonna transpire if OK'd. I followed thru when I said and went off without a hitch. It's ALL up to the Seller as to if they wanna deal or not! I get it-their listing. Just how it is.

I just had a newbie restore my faith in newbs this morning.  While it may be annoying to deal with most of them every once in a while you get that great guy who you cant help but like and want to make their first experience on here an amazing one.
