Has anyone used EdenClassifieds?

Anyone ever use the classifieds service?

I did for the first time and I'm so beyond upset. I paid for an item from someone who waited THREE WEEKS to ship it to me, and then didn't securely pack the box, so it ripped open during shipment and I was delivered an empty box. I guess this is what I get for trying to save a few bucks on something high on my wishlist.

Does anyone have any GOOD or BAD experiences with the classifieds service?

WHAT?! I think that you should try and contact the postal service about that!

I've had nothing but positive experiences. I've sold probably over 100 items on there, and I've received maybe 20? The last one I got the toys were not... Washed after use... But other than that I've never had something get lost or gotten scammed.

Sounds like you and I bought things from the same person. There are many others as well.

The best advice I've gotten and come to realize, is that buying from someone who's on the site often is always the best idea. If it's someone you're not super familiar with and they don't spend a lot of time on the site, you might have issues.

I agree. I always talk to someone for a few e-mails before I ship out toys or money. If they sound like a nice, legit person I go through with it, but if they seem seedy or don't respond regularly I say nevermind.

I'm sorry to hear that there are many more of you. Please don't let it change your mind about the Classifieds. I've had nothing but good experiences. Though, I did have a box returned and it was empty. I refunded the person the money as soon as the box showed up. The item had been lost in the mail. That was the post offices fault! Not mine...Not hers.

When I look at the Classifieds, I won't even consider a screen name I don't recognize. While I might be turning away good stuff...that's how I make my best judgement. If I haven't seen your screen name before (and I am on here a lot) then you aren't that active. I don't really know if I can trust you. Therefore, I skip over them.

She told me that I was rude for being upset about her not packing the box well and is telling me she's basically not going to do anything about it. Its just unfortunate.

I'm not too sure about doing this. if it's someone I know or a well known contributor, I might buy from them.

I had a similar situation, but got it resolved happily in the end, but yea, it took 3 weeks too. I'd be careful who I bought from though. Some of the ads seem shady.

One suggestion would be to ask for a reference from a community member you know, or at least one that is reputable, that had a positive experience trading with them. That might help to filter out shady dealers.

I'm sorry that you've had such a bad experience.

I've made purchases from four different EF members via the Classifieds and they were positive experiences. So much so that I've dealt with one of them several times and I just made a second purchase from another.

I recognized their names from the forums but still pulled up their profiles to see how long they'd been on EF, if they were active in the forums and/or review program, if they were mentors, etc. before deciding to respond to their ads.

I did have one experience that I'd put in the neutral category. I'm pretty sure I sent two responses to an ad (a few days apart) and the seller took another week to respond and asked where I was located. I immediately responded back then never heard from her again.

I got scammed from a purchase I made on Halloween, this person I have found out has scammed many. Besure to check who the contributor is and please message me the persons name because I believe there may be many many of use. She is from battlecreek michigan.

Always check out the contributor selling the items and don't be nice and paypal with a gift do the purchase of gifts and services.

I like this advice. I've wanted to buy from the classifieds before, but I was kind of afraid to.

Wow I am sorry to hear about this I won't go into the classifieds an purchase items even if they are cheaper for this reason alone. I hope the problem gets solved and that whoever this person maybe makes this right. It is their fault since they didn't properly package the box

I don't think that you should discredit the Classifieds altogether because of this, a lot of us sell clean, expensive, like new toys for cheap because we want to find a new home for them! If you see someone you recognize and it's something you want, I say go for it.

I feel awful for all of you up there who got scammed... That's just awful! Is there anything that Eden can do about said person?

I'm really sorry to hear about the bad experiences with the Classifieds. I've sold everything I've listed on there and I pride myself on making it a pleasant experience for anyone who buys from me. I sanitize everything thoroughly, package it well, include package tracking & a printed invoice, all that jazz.

Please don't discount the Classifieds altogether! Maybe just be careful who you buy from - and if you're using PayPal to purchase the item (rather than giving a monetary "gift" via PayPal) you will get buyer's protection. So you can always take it up with them through PayPal.

I know this isn't eBay, but wouldn't it be nice if some sort of feedback could be left on exceptional sellers and exceptional buyers? Or at least a list of not-so-exceptional sellers? Might help others avoid some of these shady sellers.

I agree, I wish that we could just even give them a star rating after we deal with them! Maybe we should pass that on to the community planning thread?

I suggested this, I believe, last month? I think it was over looked.

Gah, sorry to hear about your terrible experience! People can be so shitty sometimes.

I'm actually packing up and getting ready to ship out the corset I've had listed forever on the Classifieds. I had a few other people interested enough to respond to the ad but then nothing from them beyond that point. I'm excited that someone will be getting this corset who can wear it!

I also agree with the star rating system for the folks involved with the Classifieds deals, it would really help out a lot I think.

If you know someone has more than one account...email administration. That isn't allowed.

i've seen lately that people have been having issues on the classifieds. it's really a shame. i've bought once, and sold several times. i have been lucky i guess because it's all been good experiences.

Huh, I've used it to sell an item - a gift card, actually - and it was one of the most pleasant transactions I've ever done. I've also bought an item there, and likewise, the experience was lovely.
