English please!


Recommended Posts

I'm all for knowing many languages, but when doing bussiness on the net I hate it when the other person doesn't understand or has very limited abilities in English.

 

I have this one buyer on Ebay, from Germany that refuses to pay via Paypal and I told him I only accept payment through Paypal and it is clearly stated in my auction.

 

He insists that I give him my banking info and he could deposit the money into my bank account. No way buddy, try again.

 

If you can't communicate very well in English why buy from a Canadian or American?

 

Here's his last email:

 

i don`t want to pay with pay pal, or send cash to canadien, in your pay options don`t stand that i couldn`t pay over my bank.

 

I understand not wanting to pay via Paypal, but I only accept that method, so don't bid. :doh:

Change your auction settings to only accept bids from people with a PayPal account. I did that and my problems reduced greatly.

I understand it is your own decision what payments to accept, but if the buyer is willing to cover the bank wire transfer fees it is way better and secure than gaypal and makes no real sense to reject it from seller's standpoint

My settings are already set to accept Paypal only. He thinks the little bank symbol beside the credit cards means he can send money to my bank account, it only symbolizes that you can send money to my Paypal account through his bank account. He just doesn't want to use Paypal.

Bank Transfers are custom and practice within Germany, but transfers outside are problematic and expensive.

He should know better

Okay, I admit, I'm not the brightest star in the sky, so would one of our Euro members explain how this bank transfer thing works?

I've had European buyers want to send me a bank transfer as well.

 

Do I give them my bank routing numbers and account number similiar to what we do here in the USA for a direct wire payment? Then they contact their bank and have the money wired (transferred directly to me like a direct deposit)?????

 

Oh....and I suppose the buyer would be the one paying the transfer and currency conversion fees???

I don't know how they work, but I sure as hell wouldn't be giving anybody my account number...you're asking for trouble down the road I would think.

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
