I love using C.O.D. It's almost impossible to be ripped off using COD. The problems I've run into are the idiots out there who do not pickup the C.O.D. package you have sent them. So I've started this forum simply so you can post/see who has been screwing us out of our hard-earned money we paid to ship it to them.


Cheers, Chris

for starters, pb user "blinkdk" did not pick up a frame I sent him a while ago, I'll find the rest of the people who have ignored the parts they've ordered from me

Really good idea for a thread. You should update your first post and add a list of all the names people post.

I don't ship COD period. This is the 21st century people... we have paypal which has BUYER PROTECTION ya know... chances are if someone doesn't actually have the money to pay for something in advance then they don't have it to pay the COD either. Not to mention the seller can be stuck with the shipping charges BOTH ways with the deadbeats like on this thread who just don't bother to show up for the COD item.

How would I be ripped off? Grow up kid. This is how e-commerce works. You see something you like online, you pay for it, it comes in the mail. If you don't have the money, you don't commit to buying it. What? You can't understand the concept? Well gee... never heard of EBAY? Because millions of people every day manage to understand the concept but apparently not the children on pinkbike.

e-commerce works very well with legitimate businesses. believe it or not, all we have to go by on this site is a stranger's word. your faith in paypal is pretty high.

That's probably because I've been doing e-commerce for longer than paypal, or ebay have existed. I had the very SECOND mail-order bike store on the world wide web, over 17 years ago (the first was started by a friend of mine a few months earlier). As such I know very well how useless and pointless COD is, and how easy it is to get scammed/lose out that way. For starters, it is against every postal/courier company's rules to turn over the package without payment, and if its a shipment of scrap metal instead of a bike when you open it, they're not going to just give you your payment back because its not what you expected in the box. They're also not allowed to let you open the box before paying. For the seller, besides the point of this thread...people who never actually pick up the package leaving you on the hook for all the shipping charges, you're left waiting for the post office/courier service to send you the payment for it, and there's no guarantee the payment will actually be good. Courier companies if its a driver coming to your door, take the payment and immediately stick it in an envelope that's pre-addressed/labeled to send to the shipper, but they have no way of knowing if the check is good/bogus, or if the cash they're handed might be counterfeit.

For that matter, pinkbike's own FAQ on buying/selling tells people to use paypal.

your definately more likely to get ripped off paying for an item first through paypal. I have had a dispute with paypal when I was in the right and they did nothing for me. I would never get bike parts from someone without going COD. Its not 100% safe, but much better than paying someone and hope they ship you your parts.

Then don't ever try and order from jenson or chain reaction or any other real bike shop that sells online, OR ever bid on ebay, because there's no such thing as COD with them at all. You're obviously too innocent for the internet and e-commerce altogether. You should support your local bike shops and leave the 'net to us adults.
