What is with the slow paying Australians?


Recommended Posts

Is it the time of year, the weather, the surfing is too good, dingos are eating their babies or the fact they are 24hrs away by plane? Why are they so slow at paying for their stuff?

 

I'm waiting for 3 buyers to pay for cd's, all 3 are Australian.

 

And here I thought it was the Jamaicans who were laid back and had no worries.

Aussies are strange people... :whistle:

 

 

BTW You did receive my payment, didn't you Dave? ;)

 

Very rapidly thank you!

I think paypal can take upto a week to uploade money from Aussy banks to be able to make payment?

 

OK that's new to me. There are some Autralians that pay the very next day, so maybe it has to do with only certain accounts.

I've blocked Chinese and Russian bidders for a few years now. They and their mailing system can't be trusted.

Russian system is better and wayyyyyyyy cheaper than the canadian one! Of course, both pale in comparison with the master of the airwaves- the aussie one! Even though i'm from Europe, i get the aussie stuff within a week. No wonder why i, personally, stopped buying stuff from Canada (although nightmares are still haunting me after i have rejected the opportunity of getting one extremely rare canadian 7" single i was searching for and found from a canadian seller in discogs).

Maybe it's not the mailing system that can't be trusted, it may only be the majority of Ebay buyers from there.

 

The Aussie shipping may be fast, but their bidders are still slow to pay....I'm still waiting for my 3 payments. Although one buyer did communicate and said he'll pay by weeks end, something that I do appreciate.

It's nearly been a week since I started this thread and I have finally received 1 of the 3 payments from the Aussie bidders. Maybe by June all of them will have payed.

I have made friends with a swell guy over there and sent him tons of stuff and he has always paid fast. Regardless of the country, if you don't have the funds to pay within the time frame of he seller, you shouldn't be bidding.

There has only been a couple of times when I have not been able to pay straight away. One was due to a problem with Paypal putting a block on my account because they said I owed them money which I didnt, and it took them nearly a week to unblock my account even after admitting their fault, but all the while I kept the seller updated and he was fine with it. The other time I knew I wouldnt have the money within the time scale required, but desperately wanted the item, so I messaged the seller first, explained I didnt get paid for two weeks but really wanted the item, and would he mind if I bid. He was absolutely fine with it as I was up front with him.

Quite simply, if you are going to have to delay payment for whatever reason, communication is a must. I know some sellers will get the arse, but I am sure most will be understanding as long as you are honest and communicate.

The 'drama' is over. I've received all the payments. I agree communication is appreciated, yet only 1 of the 3 did communicate with me.

Yep, communication is key. Most sellers greatly appreciate it!

Personally, I generally pay immediately, before my balls have time to swell in excitement. Up to the individual I guess. I should give more lessons here on how to be awesome.

And here I am thinking you had to be born awesome like yourself and now I hear you can take lessons... :lol:

Haha, I did take lessons. From myself. My awesomeness extends to a point where that is possible.

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.
    • George W Bush's Grandfather (Aleister) got it. Charlie didn't get it, but his heart was in the right place.       
    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
