    Sale withdrawn after Paypal Payment info sent.

    Moderators,

    All rules were followed with this sale.
    I posted an "I'll take it" per the rules.
    Member sent me 2 PM's providing his PayPal address for payment.
    I followed through with the PayPal payment within minutes of the 2nd PM.

    After payment, he has decided to withdraw and has refunded payment from PayPal.

    Seems no HF published rules apply to a "seller backing out after accepting sale."

    Maybe there needs to be an addition to the forum rules addressing this.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I do believe previously members have been banned from the for sale forum for reasons like this. Don't know particulars just sayn.

    Money was refunded within 24 hours. Not an issue.
    Sellers backing out on a sale after accepting and sending a PayPal address for payment is.
    Maybe modifications to the rules are in order?
    This was an effort on my part to make a purchase for a newbie.
    Hoping to further his introduction into Hammocking.
    Not the best experience for someone potentially looking to become a HF member.

    I can understand your frustration with the situation, but I don't know what can be done. I would just be happy that the seller refunded your money. No for sale forum is perfect, but the mods seem to do a good job policing it.

    In retrospect, maybe I am expecting too much from a forum that has become my second home. There is no reason for me to expect that my obsession with hammocks and HF should become to others what it has become to me. Many thanks to all of the moderators (new & old) who have unselfishly given of their time to keep us all straight.

    I think you have a point. As a prospective buyer there are a lot of rules governing what you are supposed to do. I think it is only fitting there should be at least a relative set of rules for prospective sellers to follow as well. I have been interested in several items that were posted and while I was researching the details of the particular product posted when I returned to the listing I found it had been withdrawn, this was frustrating. I don't know that there's anyway you could actually make someone sell something that they listed and withdrew. Overall I'm very impressed with this forum, and the classified subform. I think nearly everything seems to run smoothly there. Perfection is an impossibility. But I do believe that you have an interesting case being discussed here. I hope you got 100% of your money back and that you are able to find what you were looking for.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I would suggest as you are not out your cash, you are whole. But buyer/seller feedback is fair and called for on any forum. It would seem appropriate that said member is identified as part of this post so that other members know with whom they would be dealing if/when additional items are offered.

    Just so you know guys I have pm'd this member to get his side of the story. I don't know what happened but I am looking into it. I hope to get an answer but if I don't we as a moderating staff may or may not take action of some sort. We are not sure what will happen based upon information that we currently have.
    Let me say this though. As a whole the for sale thread in my short time as mod has ran really smoothly. Other than a few minor procedural issues there have been NO major issues. It usually runs itself with your help. We are looking into it though.
