That sounds utterly unplausable to me. Why would a business try to sell something they don't have? Especially a high volume company like Cupola? I really can't understand that.
Well start understanding! Ott, not much of a business mind are you? How about bringing in equipment you've already sold and been paid for so you don't have to inventory & pay for it out of your own money since it is presold?
Retail is all about terms and cash flow. Now is it plausible? Wouldn't you rather get orders upfront and then fill them. That would normally be fine, but I don't think it is ethical in a bidding environment whne you can't fulfill your end of the deal!
I bought, didn't even bid, paid the "BUY IT NOW" price. Paid immediately through Paypal, same day from my checking account. 3 weeks went by. No call no communication. I called and they said they would call me back. They never called. I called again. They said the skis would be in the next week. Hello Ott??? They auctioned skis they didn't have!!!!!!!!
Then when Scalce & I complained about there ridiculous business practices on the Forum, he sent my money back (over a month after I paid him) and then put negative feedback and derogatory personal attacks on my ebay profile. I guess because I paid so promptly and expected what I had paid for or a phone call or email within a month. Cupolo can kiss my A_ _. They'll never get another dime of my money or anyone's I know! I'd rather pay a reputable retailer more than put up with his BS. By the way I initiated mediation to get the inaccurate slanderous negative feedback removed and he has refused to participate, which means it should get taken off my profile. Only negative comment I've ever had and sold & bought lots of stuff on here and on ebay. I do what I say I'm going to do when I said I was going to do it!
So Ott!! understand it now?
One more thing. I just got my phone bill. The last time I called they put me on hold for 20 minutes and the phone call cost me over $20.00
