Default Careful sending plants

A active member on here asked to buy plants from me. We made further contact by text and we agreed on price plus shipping. I promptly dug,packaged and shipped five large corms weighing 35 pounds. Charged 75$ for plants and shipping was 25$. He has not payed me yet and itís been a few weeks. I know I should of received payment first. Maybe this post will give him incentive to pay. If not I will be releasing his name and contact next week.

I always wait until payment has been received before I mail out plants or fertilizer. Bananas.org has a feedback feature similar to EBay and such. Make sure to use it.
So far I was only scammed once while trading. Someone promised to send a certain variety and I send him a huge plant shipping cost alone were $75. That was in 2015. Excuses over excuses after that followed why he was not able to mail the promised plant and I even received photos of the fruiting plant I had sent him. Never again. Lesson learned, but I left feedback. Sorry that happened to you.

Money talks, everything else walks. If you are going to sell plants, act like a business. Friends, foes, unknown people, whoever, get paid and the ship. Same advice you would get when renting to a friend or relative: treat it like a business. Solves so many problems.

Guys mike J has not payed or made any contact w me.
Someone asked how I was able to do 35pounds for 25$. I don’t know, I shoved corms in a box and took them to the post office. 25$ even. I expected it to be much more. this is one reason I shipped before Payment. I was already at post office and went ahead and sent them off thinkin how happy Mike J would be w his super great deal.

That's nice of you, I'm sorry they took advantage of your niceness. I hope you sell more in the future and make up your loss. I would buy from you and pay first. Do you have any bananas for sale?

Wow...hopefully there is an explanation. Two long tenured members...I shipped Mike J numerous plants back in the day when I used to ship plants....keep us posted.

What are you growing these days?
