buying a record on dis**** not as easy as it looks

Freebasing CantCant CanCan

 
Posted (edited)

having made an order on discogs I was told  I wasn't invoiced  but given 24 hours to choose more records from their not so fabulaous catalogue.  I haven't dealt with the seller before, but it reeks of hard sell. . I  have ordered  what i want to order, and am uneasy bout this hard sell of items I have no interest in . .  I even considered cancelling the order. Any views?

I don't really get it. Did you make an offer or did you order for price stated?

I placed my order.  The message  I got was ''We aren't taking payment for the item you ordered so you can for the next 24 hours '' buy more if you want to, with a discount on records over a tenner that are under offer''. So I wont get my record until I decide or not that I want more records off the company. If that makes sense.

Benji I was given an option of buying more records inside 24 hours records where I could make an offer.

send a message saying you note that they refuse to take your payment and consider order cancelled, then leave feedback on your experience to help others

Wasn’t Resolution Records was it at all?? If it is they will process your sale but are giving you the chance to buy others at a reduced rate.

I ordered from them the other week and they did post quite quickly however the grading was nothing like m- as advertised but was more like vg/vg+ at best but when I complained did resolve very quickly to be fair. I may have just been unlucky as their feedback is good.

I’ve got another situation again with a shop in the States where they had a couple of £25 records saying m- and they would have been really cheap including the postage if they were the right grading but they are barely g condition so expensive by the time you factor in the post cost.

Trying to get a refund including postage as I wouldn’t have ordered if knew they were trashed 😡

I had the same experience, sorted quickly but made me a bit wary of future purchases

I don't see what the big deal is here. Pay for the record you want and just tell them you don't want any more records discount or not.

They offering me to keep the record and give me back 25% so I asked them when does m- to vg equal 25% off 🙄

As said though got resolved pretty quickly in the end 👍

To be honest it’s not a bad deal if they have something else you want and as long as the condition is as stated 🤣

They do post your order the next working day

I don't get it, all they are doing is offering you a discount on the rest of their stuff. They are not refusing your purchase either way, have they said you can't have your purchase UNLESS you order something else ?. Whether the record conditions are accurate is a totally separate matter.

I think the crux of the matter is CantCant CanCan misunderstood the offer and I must admit I read it the same way when they sent the message to me and had to re read it 👍

just for my sanity - does the

'We aren't taking payment for the item you ordered so you can for the next 24 hours '' buy more if you want to, with a discount on records over a tenner that are under offer''

mean a delay in processing order/shipment? sorry to be thick, not ordered from them before

Yes by 24 hours then they send what you ordered 👍

They don’t mean you have to buy more, only if you want to 🙂

Seems reasonable.

I make it perfectly clear to my customers on here that I will delay any orders unless I can pop round, watch a bit of TV and have a bath.

Do you pop round with the record or do you still want postage costs!?
