You're talking about dealing with probably around 12-15 MFC users before I find three serious ones. That's not a good value proposition for my time, even if I'm giving the figures away.
Most MFC users don't seem to understand that the phrase "I want to buy your figure, what's your paypal" means that I as the seller am going to assume the figure is pending a sale to them and that I expect them to pay relatively quickly, or at least by the next day. And if they don't plan to do that, then they need to tell me immediately that they've changed their mind so I can make it available to the public again. I don't even sell figures that often, but I've lost track of the number of potential sales that have ended this way, over and over before finding a serious buyer.
For every figure I try to sell, there are around four or five idiots who waste my time like this.>"hi, I want to buy your figure. whats your paypal? =>)">>My paypal is #######. Please PM me your shipping address here too. Thanks, Anon
Then, nothing. After waiting 24 hours to be polite, I get back to them with a simple and unaccusatory,>>Hi, Are you still interested in buying the figure?
This is almost always immediately met with an excuse, like: >"I will have to wait until it clears my paypal account" (wtf does that even mean?), or>"I will need to deposit money in my bank tomorrow," (how do people not have $45 in their bank accounts?) or>"I get paid this Friday/don't have the money now" (then don't lead me on, dipshit!)
It should go without saying that they rarely ever "get the money" and also rarely ever have the decency to let me know that they won't be buying my figure like they initially promised they would. Meanwhile, I am left assuming, for at least the first 24 hours, that they will buy it since I've given them my paypal account at this point.
It just ends up being a massive waste of time. I'd rather give away figures for almost free to good people than deal with that willingly.
