Hi, I'm a brand new member here, and I have what's probably a stupid question. I see a banjo on this site that I want to buy, and I need help in figuring out how to make the "transaction". I don't see anything to click on, like a "Buy Now button" to click on, like on ebay. Can someone please help me with this? I did send a message to the buyer about 1 1/2 weeks ago, but haven't gotten a reply. I also contacted the webmaster, and haven't gotten a reply from him either. So, could someone please tell me how to buy a banjo that's ,issted on this site? I' certainly appreciate it! Thank you in advance. Rich Bala
You contact the seller via e-mail or PM from the ad in the classifieds and he/she responds back and the two of you decide on whether the buy is a go or not. Then you deal directly with the seller. You do NOT deal with the Hangout in any way except we put the ad on our classifieds and accept your donation if the sale is finalized.
If you don't hear from the seller and have tried several times to contact him/her, they may not wish to do business with you, they may be on vacation, be sick, the item may have been sold, the PM/e-mail may have gone into their spam folder or any other reason. In that case, I'd look for another banjo to buy with a seller that was easier to contact and/or easier to deal with.
Okay, thank you very much for responding to my post, and for all the information. I'll try contacting him one more time, and if I still get no response, I'll move on. You were very helpful, and I do appreciate it. Take care, and happy picking! Rich
Rich...I'm a 13 year member of BHO and have experienced many great sellers as well as non-responsive sellers. Don't get fixated on a single banjo if the seller is non-responsive. Keep looking...many great opportunities travel through this site. And, if you find yourself in a seller's position one day, do the right thing and respond promptly. What goes around, comes around. Good luck in your search.
