No More International Transactions
After the past two weeks of triple transaction hell, I'm done.

Tired of whiny buyers, corrupt sellers, dodgy shippers, surprise fees, months of delays, customs hassles, expensive stuff shipped in the most costly way that magically never appears... It's just not worth it. It's nothing but a sad, pita joke.

I'd love to help my worldwide friends and make a few dollars on the side, but there's just too much bs with all the packing, shipping, paperwork, trips to the depots, excuses on the phone, sending and answering e-mails, getting b itched at, filing investigation requests, leaving messages never to be returned and my main downfall, trusting my fellow humans. Some transactions have gone fine; most haven't.

It's sad too. I thought this was a "global economy'. We've got a long way to go.

I'm out. gruudge

We have "sold" more than 6 items to people in Russia on Ebay over the past two years. NONE of them has actually paid for the items and we have had to file an "unpaid item" case with Ebay. The same thing is happening with buyers in India and Canada. If you push the buy button on Ebay that means, at least to me, you want to purchase the item AND PAY FOR IT. I never know whether this is some kind of joke or if some 11 year old purchases something on Ebay and has no way to pay for it.

Anyway I feel your pain. :facepalm:
