Would you say this is an Unwritten rule of the JD?

    Let's say you have Some balis up for sale in the voodoo section. You spend a few weeks coming to an agreement on a price. During those several weeks you pass on several other offers because you have an ongoing negotiation for all the knives in one group buy. Then after that price has been negotiated the buyer then says he needs 6 weeks to make payment on those items.

    How would you feel about this?

    What would you do in this situation?

    The unwritten rule that I am referring to is that you should have the money up front if you're offering to make a purchase. Am I right?

    Then let's say at the end you do agree to come up with a payment plan and help this fellow JD member out and work out a payment plan. Then he decides he wants to renegotiate prices. I personally think I have been very fair and consider by helping this member acquire the knives that I have for sale. But I would like to hear what other JD members would do in this situation.

    They should have at least told you in advance that they would need some time to get the money together while you were negotiating. I would consider the deal null and void. If you are bidding on something you should always have the money up front.

    yeahhhh that's not cool. trying to deal with it any further sounds like more trouble than its worth. I'd be like "sorry, we had a deal and since it cant be kept, i'll be moving on"

    We have done deals together in the past but he always paid immediately. He has always told me to keep him in mind whenever I sell something in the future. He has private messaged me asking me if I was ever considering selling anything, but at the time I had a lot going on in my life and I wasn't selling anything. Now I get a private message from him asking if there's anything in my collector/save Queen collection that I'm considering selling. For some reason he assumed that I was in no hurry and would accept a payment plan. He never explained that he wanted to do a payment plan nor have we ever done one in the past.. He thought that a payment plan was what I was considering and says that it's some sort of a miscommunication. As I mentioned earlier, I did agree to do some sort of a payment plan after the fact but then he changed his mind on the prices we previously agreed upon.

    Once a deal has been agreed upon if the other party then tries to change it the deal is off in my book. It's like signing a contract, renegotiating is not an option.

    Once the terms have been set, that's it. If the other party tried to change those terms, fuck them, they can't be trusted. There will always be other buyers out there.

    It would be cool to see a rule implemented to counter this.

    It's no secret that many of the knives I sell are expensive and that's why I offer payment plans. I set a price, down deposit amount, and an amount that's non-refundable if anything happens. At no point whatsoever is the arrangement open for renegotiating period end of story!

    What "rule"..., where, who, how?
    Probably best to assume if there is possible wiggle room in one's terms, some miscreant will do his/her/its best to take advantage. If one's goal is to be liked you may be better served to start a kumbaya group; otherwise tell fuckers to pay the fuck up under your terms or go fuck themfuckingselves.
