Ricardo Dispute advice

Hi,
I am facing an issue regarding some stuff purchased from Ricardo.
The seller says the product can be collected only in April (mentioned in the bid) but askes me to pay within 14 days the complete amount.
I have told him that we will pay the amount when we come to collect the stuff but he says no. He said that the amount has to be paid in 14 days.

What should i do in this case?

Re: Ricardo Dispute advice

I don't understand. First you say he is sending the stuff in April, then you say that you are picking it up.
If the latter, I wouldn't pay until you pick it up. Sounds weird, though.
Have you looked at the rating the seller has? It usually gives you a good indication on how reliable he is.

Re: Ricardo Dispute advice

Doesn't Ricardo ask you to stipulate how payment is made, i.e CoD, payment in advance etc?

Re: Ricardo Dispute advice

This is why I haaaate selling stuff on Ricardo and Ebay.

What was given in the auction description? Are you allowed to pick up? Did he say the item was only available in April? Got a link to the expired auction?

Re: Ricardo Dispute advice

Hi,
Description says the product can be picked up in April only.
I offered him to pay 90CHF at the time of collection but he does not agree.
He asks me to pay within 14 days.
Is this correct? Am i liable to pay him even before 3 months?

About the payment. Did it say you can pay on pickup? Payment in advance? Eh? Eh?

In that case, I wouldn't pay until you pick it up. Sounds very fishy.
Also, what's his rating? And has he sold other stuff or is he a one hit wonder? You need to look at those things, IMHO.

Re: Ricardo Dispute advice

Yes he has sold some stuff, his rating is good.
But i am bit skeptical as i offered him to pay the amount on the collection day. I am even ready to collect now and pay. But he is not ready.

Description regarding collection says:
Im April in Dänikon ZH (nahe Regensdorf und Wettingen) abzubauen/abzuholen. Keine Verpackung, Keine Garantie.

He has no right to ask for money when you won't have your purchase for another 2 months. He should have said in the ad that he expects payment before collection date. Did you know this before you bid for it?

Re: Ricardo Dispute advice

My guess is that this seller is moving out of his home in April and decided to sell (very early) some of the stuff he is not taking with him.

Cancel the purchase, and if the item is still on sale in April.......try again then.

I went to school with a girl named Almirah. Are you sure you are allowed to sell people on Ricardo?


But seriously, what's an almirah?
