If you do, be prepared for a shipping experience if you offer it. If you start selling like a beast (a lot in a short period of time) you'll be running your "you know what" off and then you'll become a wrap, pack and ship master. It won't take long....heheheeheheheeeeeeee................ahem. I'm ok. Sorry.Reverb's been good to me so far. But I've only bought stuff, haven't tried to sell something yet.
I think it's mostly because you're being a bit over dramatic with it. I think if you said "I've had a couple of issues with Reverb, one where an item wasn't packed well and I had a problem getting money back, and another where they pulled one of my ads due to my price" that'd be one thing, but you're pointing fingers at people and are saying the same things over and over again.O, wait, now I get it. So this isn't a "community" where drum related $hit gets discussed. And of course not when another member goes out of his way to take a $hit on another's business. Hmmm ...
In an attempt to stay out of it, or be positive like fatman (good one! Sounds like you were about to start tearing the house down, Buddha), a few of you couldn't help but be positive. No, wow, someone actually went out of his way to call Reverb to close your listing, and Reverb ACTUALLY DID JUST THAT.
How republican of you. Go ahead, report me, have me removed, I do not care. I want you to.
Funny how bent out of shape many get when anyone says a word unfavorable to Ringo.
My experiences as well. Of the couple of minor disputes I've had as a buyer they handled they very well. On a couple occasions they forwarded me some Reverb bucks on them. For 95% of us that handle pretty standard percussion transactions it seems to work very well. I could see how 5 figure drum kits could have their own issues. As far as packing, that's on the seller. If you have doubts about their skills, run them through it. What could it hurt? As they say, an ounce of prevention. Never "assume" anything...unless you want to end up on the wrong end of the transaction. Ask a seller how they packed the last item similar to what you're buying.I have had only a couple of deals go sour on Reverb, out of 200 or so transactions. The times things didn’t go well, Reverb handled it quickly and properly. I’m not in any way doubting anyone else’s bad experiences, but so far they have done the right thing for me.
