Hey guys, heads up, I don't usually complain about this but lately I've been getting people bidding on my stuff and then never replying to me or even message me again once I ask them for the payment, I won't really mind if they'd at least give me an explanation or straight up tell me they're not interested anymore but when they let me hanging for days it really bothers me and I feel they don't respect me nor my art/time, so heads up, from now on I'm Blacklisting (I already blacklisted two) people who does that and they won't be allowed to participate in any future sales or events by me, maybe I'm a little harsh? but I'm really sick, DON'T BID IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PAY, don't waste my time

Note: this is only for people who ignores me or let me hanging without any word, if you have a valid excuse we're totally fine, if you happen to be blacklisted you can always contact me to explain me your reasons and I'll gladly remove you from the blacklist

I hope this sounds reasonable, I've always been really patient with people, especially when they show genuine interest, but I've come to a point where I just...ugh

It's so frustrating and disrespectful honestly. I can't stand it! You're doing good by blacklisting them!
I usually make it a rule to pay within 24 hours after the auction ends or else I'll open it again and sell the adoptable to someone else then again no one buys my shit but that's another story
It's happened to me with commissions, too. I hate making people pay me before the commission is finished, but I think I'll do that in the future since I can't afford to wait weeks and weeks for people to pay me for a job I got done as soon as I could. And then you see the same people pay up right away with other artists for some unknown reason?? Or maybe they think that because I'm not "popular" they have the right to disrespect me and make me wait? Who knows

ohh I never did the pay before the commission is finished because it can serve for scams and stuff, sometimes I ask 50% before and 50% when it's finished or I ask for the full payment after the sketch is done, so far I've only been "scammed" once and it was a while ago because I was paid in points and dA took them from me because apparently the person who bought the points was on some fishy activity, idk

ohboy, one of the persons I blacklisted had me waiting on a payment for days without telling me anything and then I saw them bidding on adopts and stuff, I was so mad, I swear I had never blacklisted anyone before that but that person really made me lose my patience XD, that's why I started to consider the blacklist, it sucks that some people seem to don't care about keeping their word and as you said, I've also read about people doing that, like, people who only keep their word when it comes to popular artists or species or even people who ony put effort into their commissions when they're for someone popular :/

but oh well, at least these kind of things makes you think and learn and you start to realize that those people is better to ignore them and keep moving

MOOD tbh
yeah, a blacklist should help a bit i think! At least repeat offenders won't be a problem.

yo creo que si dejas un auction abierto por mucho tiempo es probable que la persona para el momento de pagar ya no tenga el dinero.., no sé, es mi opinión ;;"
pero si, hay veces en las que ofertan y nunca pagan o responden, es frustrante..

yo opino que esa no es excusa, digo, incluso si la persona no especifica cuando se acaba la subasta, el comprador deberia hacerse responsable por mantener su palabra, porque en ese caso yo podria decirle a alguien que se ha tardado mucho tiempo en hacer mi comision que ya me gaste el dinero en otra cosa porque se estaban tardando mucho, espero que eso tenga sentido ;v;

por suerte en mi caso suelo hacer tener el dinero de adopciones y esa cosas como dinero extra asi que no me afecta mucho, pero hay gente que vive de esto y para ellos debe ser verdaderamente problematico que haya personas que hagan eso, ya que uno confia en que el comprador mantendra su palabra

simplemente, no ofrezcas si no estas dispuesto a pagar o almenos hazle saber a la persona si ya no estas interesado para no hacerlos perder su tiempo

well yeah, obviamente uno se tiene que hacer cargo si oferta el dinero y sis urge algun problema puedes cancelar la oferta, pero al menos has saber al artista que no vas a poder pagar ;__;

exacto! el problema no es tanto que ya no tengan el dinero porque puede que haya surgido algo mas importante de lo que se tuvieran que hacer cargo, el problema es que no te avisan y luego te quedas esperando como tonto porque aun tienes la esperanza y confias en el customer-san ;v;

I think this is reasonable!!
It sucks to be left hanging, especially since some people can just "tease bid" or trying to make it higher but never intended to buy etc.

I once had someone not pay me until like 1-2 months later

ohgod, did they at least contact you to tell you they'd pay you later ot it was just like, out of the blue? X'D

I usually put in my rules to be ready to pay within 24-48 hours and even then I usually give people a little more of times because I know sometimes things may happen, but everything I ask for is to let me know, it doesn't even take more than 2 minutes to reply with "hey I'm having some troubles rn so I can't keep up with the sale" or "would it be possible to ask for a little more of time?" and boy chances are that I'll tell you that there's no problem, but god, at least tell me something! -sobs-

anyway sorry for the little vent X'D, I know it will happen again but hopefully with the blacklisting warning some people will consider it twice ;v;U

They said they would at first, but then I reminded them, and also told them I'd blacklist them etc if they wouldn't pay within a certain time. 
Took 2 months of nagging though OTL


it's fine I get it! it's really upsetting tbh : <
I hope that, for future references people will get back to you

welp, at least they paid at the end I guess X'D, I've had people noting me months later to explain me why they couldn't keep up with their offer so I thought it was important to at least give them the chance to be taken out of the black list at any time

as I mentioned above, fortunately I do adoptable sales/auctions as a hobby and to get extra money so it doesn't affect me a lot when this happens, but for the people who sell adopts or art as a job and need the money for important things it must be really frustrating xwx
