I always offer to make a deposit if I ask for it to be held, I know how slack people can be. I 'sold' an item, sent payment details, wrapped the item ready to post and the women simply ceased replying to my msg's, so rude.
I agree.. when you're nice they take advantage and if you're straight forward about how the way you wanted the transaction is they will say you're rude. I will try your idea. Thanks!
Yeah I think it's totally reasonable to ask for one and I'm always happy to offer it because I know how buyers can mess sellers around. Maybe put it in your bio. 😊
