Even worse is when failippers trash the tube once it arrives and ask for a refund.

So those flippers who cancel their order, do they just list it on eBay for like a few hours and then attempt to cancel the order if they don't get a bite?

yea pretty much. It happens a lot with our toy business. If they don't get a buyer within an hour, they email.

Wow, and do you honour these cancellations? Surely there's a no cancellation policy like Mondo, right?

No. We have an all sales final policy when checking out and it wins most cases if ever opened.

And just to continue our talks from the other day, this is what unfortunately we deal with now. The worst part is that this isn't even Bottleneck. It's David's site from a sale from a week and half ago.

As everyone knows, artists make all their money basically from gig print aps so you have these people who mainly come from other hobbies and want a quick flip, don't get it, then they do this.

For an artist who makes his monthly income off this, it's disturbing and sad. I can only imagine what its like for artists who are just starting out and trying to build a market. At least when people used bots in the past, if they don't flip, they take the loss. A lot of the newer flippers are used to getting refunds from Amazon, Target or Nike when they can't flip.

(All of these are fake names btw and attached with different names per order).

the best part of this is that these messages are in your trash folder. lol.

Haha you don’t know the half of it and the crazy part is that sometimes it’s not an accident. We had one guy purchase an entire variant edition of a recent popular Masthay release.

Interesting stuff to read about, but sorry for the headaches!
