How do I get my money back
« on: January 22, 2020, 10:27:35 PM »
Hey all, just wondering in the unfortunate situation that a seller fails to deliver an order as promised, how do I get my money back. I paid for some seeds on the 8th, they replied to me on the 13th that they were preparing the order. I messaged again yesterday, asking if the seeds ever went out and they have not replied in over 24 hours. HELP!

Iíd wait 48 hours after the email if you donít hear back contact PayPal. Not getting a fast response sometimes happens, fruit people are not the most punctual.Hopefully the seeds will end up shipping out. If the person doesnít get back to you, post the username so other people donít have that problem too.

Best wishes.

You have to have patience in the tropical fruit game...24 hrs is not patient enough. Give them much more time to respond. People have lives outside of this forum with travel, family, etc.. When you plant a seed, you donít get fruit overnight...patience is a virtue.

I'm on the same situation with a big amount of money involved, but you have to relax and most importantly always pay by paypal or similar. Some sellers have to wait for the seeds to be shipped overseas. Try contact them through the facebook page if they have them, usually they reply much faster.

Hopefully, my advice is still relevant. Probably it was just a busy time during the holiday season when all post-service work in chaos. During this time, a lot of parcels are getting lost or cannot be delivered on time. You have to understand and accept this fact. Besides, you also have to take into account that people who work there receive low wages. Most of them are not that enthusiastic about working extra hours for free to deliver your parcel. My friend used to work there, and they paid him a minimum wage. Later he started to play games for real money. He said that he made more money playing rather than on that job.

Had the same issues with seedhunters. Had to do a paypal dispute, then got a response. Then he lied numerous times about sending a plant to make up for it.

Just add, Patience is the name of the game in this business as many can attest. Patience ripening. collecting the seeds, mailing now takes patience. Finally getting the buggers to germinate. Not everyone is living on a computer and will answer a msg in 20mins some take longer and some take much longer. Always use paypal.
There are many good reliable , and trustworthy sellers.

In the end there is always risk in involved. Life is all about experiencing, growing and learning.

All this advice is still relevant, but you guys realize in a few days this post will be a year old. It can happen when people see January and still haven't adjusted to the year switching over

Or a spammer revives a year old thread, posts a sentence or two of some what relevant info, then segues into how the workers are poorly paid and posts a link to a app that will pay you to play games.

Yikes, I didn't even notice the link. Same user also bumped a post from 2016 ;D also with a link, but I think it's harmless.
