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.

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.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
