circumstances of asking the phone to be on hold because of unavailability of online bank due to cards being block

seller understanding and also needs to wait for their new phone to arrive

upon further investigation of effectiveness and longevity of phone, the narrative changes opposing that of mainstream youtube videos reviewing the phone

is it alright as a buyer to have doubts after further research

is it right for the seller to get angry if they do not have a need to sell the device immediately, if they have multiple phones, and dont consider the sale to impact them, and portray that all their time was spent clearing the phone for the buyer, an extreme exaggeration on their part

considering there is a wait on both the seller and buyer side for things to resolve in their personal lives, is it right for the seller to say the buyer wasted their time

maintenance for phone tech not directly supported locally, versus readily available brands, factors not taken into account before contacting seller, and also overriden depending on mainstream narrative over quality of device, reasons for not continuing the purchase

Every situation is different but I'll say this;

"Dibsing" or committing to a sale just to keep your spot at the top of the line so you can do research on a product you may or may not want is a d!ck move. I've been in that spot more than once, losing a sale or having to drop my price to re-attract previously interested parties.

One shouldn't reserve an item because you don't have the money yet. That already says something about your financial priorities.

You should also not commit to a purchase before you've done your due diligence because the fact is, if the item was in stock, you would have bought it and possibly regretted it.

Finally I'd say that the seller shouldn't count his chickens before they've hatched. Money in the bank is a sale, nothing else.

You commit you should be obligated to purchase simple.

It is alright for the buyer to have doubts after further research, but not if that research is done after phone is being held for him/her; thus, dick move.
if
For the purposes of Feedback the deal may be reviewed once both parties have agreed on the deal and the only step left is payment/delivery/collection.
applies, then leave a negative iTrader. Otherwise just tell him he is an inconsiderate asshole and add him to your do not deal list.

1) as a buyer you should not really expect someone to hold something for you.... if you don't have the funds now, leave it.... what happens then if your funds aren't available again after the 'holding' period? going to ask seller to hold again?

2) as a buyer, if you are only doing your research AFTER you decide to buy something, then you have your steps confused somewhere.... research, or knowing what a product is/does, should occur BEFORE any decision to buy is made

3) even if there is a wait for both parties involved, asking a seller to hold something and then deciding against the purchase imo is still seen as wasting time.... not so much time "wasted for personal reasons", but the time the seller could have used to actually get a definite interested party that would take item immediately

On both sides

1. Bitching about clearing a phone? You living in the 80's? The entire thing should back up daily by all means, stop being a twat
2. Dibs or Hold is too easy here, do your homework, then buy. If you are on here you should at least be slightly tech savvy and know fair details of mainstream items(Or else you should really change your username)
3. Dibz stuff while not having the means to pay?


3. Get a life. Someone punked you on selling/buying a car/ R50000 Gaming rig, sure, come bitch about it, a phone you're not happy with and the seller kaks all over you for pulling out of a deal? REally dude, you both sound 14.
