I have never sold anything to anyone in Italy, but I bought fudge twice and both were horrendous experiences. #neveragain

In person, Italy is awesome though.

Person is already throwing red flags asking if I'm going to pay the import taxes :lol:

There was...I remember that too. Think it was something flaky about their Customs.

I received a warning about this a few months back after someone asked for an email address and I closed the listing a few days later.

I just tell people "not here - find me somewhere else"
If they can't find me, I probably don't want to sell to them anyway.

Print got delivered over a week and go and dude still hasn't picked it up. I sent him two messages already with no responses. If this guy doesn't pick up the print and it gets sent back to me is the whole transaction void?



Update!

So the buyer had to reschedule delivery by July 8th or it was getting sent back to me. I ended up sending him 3 total messages in the last two weeks with no responses.

Two days ago I said drymount it and rescheduled the delivery myself for today, figuring Saturday would be the best chance of getting him at home. When I reschedule the shipping on USPS I left a note under special instructions that said "Please knock loudly, hard of hearing".

Delivered with recipient this afternoon lol

If you stay in the Expresso Beans location then shipping to Italy is a breeze!

You're a troll. You're not making any contribution to the thread, you're a troll. We're guessing who trolls are. You know most users who only make jokes without trying to help are trolls? - Well I'm going home alright? EB's playing with its new guys.

so guy buys item, hasn't paid in 48 hours. told him bid would be cancelled after 48 hours.

filed unpaid item case... am I safe to relist?

*edit - I know unpaid item case can take up to a month to resolve, and I'm fine sitting on item. but figured i'd see what others have experienced in this situation.
