Flaky Discogs Sellers..

Look At Your Box Joesoap

 
Posted (edited)

Been having a bit of trouble with sellers on Discogs, of late. Usually where I've found something a bit cheap and /or good but relatively unknown and then the seller tells me its out of stock (later re-listing for higher price), or starts quibbling about / revising their description of condition or simply takes the money and doesn't send the record or respond to messages. Had a glut of this over the last month or so and it's a pain in the arse. So was just wondering if I have just been unfortunate or whether others have experienced an increase in flaky business from sellers?

(PS. One cheapo with an amazing, unknown b-side, I've tried to buy 4 times and there's always some excuse once I order it why it isn't available!😂)

Most sellers I have come across are "Head and Shoulders" (other hair treatments are available) good sellers

There is a forum on Discogs for these issues and I suggest you make your comments to that forum, rather than this one, or report your problem as I have found it really useful, if you buy a faulty car from Ford it's no good complaining to Vauxhall 😀

I had that problem a bit when first using Discogs , but easily solved, I now get them to confirm the condition in detail, when the order has been placed or ask them first before ordering and problem solved

Just read the sellers feedback. You usually get a good indication from that if they grade properly. I haven’t had one problem with any seller and I have bought quite a bit through there.  One of the best places to buy, especially LPs.
