I encountered a non paying bidder on Lelong last week. I usually give three working days for payment to be made and today is already a few days past the deadline.
The auction closed at RM4 and shipping was supposed to be RM3 which means that total payment should be RM7. Since it is such a low-priced auction, I don’t see the point of taking the trouble to report this Lelong member for bidding, winning and then not paying.
I know that I should but should I when I did not lose anything? It’s not as if I had to pay for listing fees or lost the item to the buyer already because he made a charge back or something like that.
I think there are worst things than encountering a non paying bidder. I guess after a few years in the circuit, we just learn to take it and move on.
