I've always been confused about how mail trades work.
1) Who sends first? Obviously, seniority rules here right?
2) What happens if theres a problem? I.e. its not what they said it was, or something of that nature and refuses to return?
3) What if you dont like the guitar?
Success stories welcomed please.
1.) Whatever the two traders work out--usually ship on the same day if possible.
2.) The two traders work it out between themselves, as Jemsite has no authority on the matter.
3.) See #2. Usually, sold/traded "as-is" is the norm. If someone doesn't like it--too bad. They knew what they were getting, and if not--should have done some research (something that seems to elude a vast majority of people these days.) Google, what's that? Ibanez catalogs, what are those? Jemsite SEARCH feature, we actually have one of those?!?!?!?
Success stories--17 of my 18 iTrader trades were perfect. The one exception was the RG-770DX VM I sold, and the buyer damaged it and tried to claim that he received it that way. Unfortunately for him--I take pictures of all items as they go in the box. When I showed him those pics, and stated he could file a damaged delivery claim--I never herd from him again.
So folks, use that as an example on how to conduct your trades. Describe the condition in detail, take hi-res pics of the item when listing and again when you're packaging it, and make clear what your policies are: returns welcome with "X" amount of days, as-is, etc.
