    I am selling a pedal. Buyer submitted an offer, I accepted. It has been 48 hours and they still have not paid. I am tempted to cancel and relist. Would this be wrong? Reverb auto cancels at 72 hours. I want this item sold - it was priced to sell so someone else will buy very quickly if this person does not.
    Thanks for your input. :)

    IMO, you're 48 hrs in already. Waiting for 72 hrs and letting it auto cancel is the way to go. Or not.

    If you’re convinced it’ll sell right away if you cancel now than it’ll sell right away if it cancels tomorrow.

    I would cancel. If someone buys something, they should pay for it unless they are relisting it to flip it. I have been shopping online for many years and pay asap.

    I'd let Reverb auto-cancel it, keeps it very clean that way.

    The policy is the policy. You agree to it when you sell your stuff through them. I understand the impatience but it’s definitely wrong to cancel now.

    Why? The policy on Reverb is 72 hours.

    It doesn't seem right that the person can tie up the sale for 3 days while they mull it over. If you are permitted to cancel then that is a valid option too. Chances are they are not going to pay after waiting 48 hours.

    I'd wait it out and the buyer a reminder in the meantime that you've got the item packed and are ready to ship, but payment hasn't cleared yet.

    Then the question has been answered already.

  15. Wait it out. It's the cost of doing business. Unless it's fraudulent, I doubt Reverb will side with you.

  16. P.S. - this is the reason for buyer feedback

    Usually you have to complete the transaction to provide feedback

    ps Reverb is the last place I would list something if I was in a hurry.
     
  18. Is one day going to make a difference? Of course you want your money asap, but I don’t think the Reverb policy is that far out of line.

    I WAS going to buy your pedal for asking price, but I had to spend $5 more on the next available one.

    Three days? Reasonable. Common. Bog standard. The buyer might never pay but a three day payment policy? Three day shipment policy? Not even remotely out of line.
