In Reply to: WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BASIC COMMON COURTESY? posted by islandmom on July 17, 2008 at 11:57 am:

First, VegSource is not responsible for any of the transactions of its members, as specifically stated in the Suggestions & Guidelines for Swap Transactions Number 11) "VegSource is not responsible for transactions conducted on the swap boards. We will try to help when there is a problem, but all such issues are strictly between the buyers and sellers.". VegSource is not part of the problem, nor can they provide the solution. The only way they can keep people from being dishonest in transactions would be to quit allowing people to list items for sale at all. I sure hope it will never come to that!

Second, "common" and "courtesy" have become mutually exclusive terms in much of our society, it's true, but it doesn't have to remain that way. If folks 'confirm, but then don't payment, it is very rude, yes, but you can put a little protection on your side if you state something along the lines of:

"Due to unscrupulous people who don't follow through, the following rule is now in effect: Items will remain available until payment is actually made and nothing ships until that payment clears."

Also, PayPal is still free to join, and though they take a small percentage as a fee for processing payments, the peace of mind of having the payment made fast, and verified, is worth it. You can also easily print shipping labels and have the cost taken right out of the balance from the payment. There are other similar services as well.

Hope this helps!
