Default Has anyone had to do this?

Ok I am in a dilemma..I now have 97.00 in my checking and almost 2000.00 in paypal..And until I get my midtown's and my 15.1 avengings, the majority can't be filled..Does paypal ever equal out..I had 498.00 in my account last night and suddenly my bank account is empty..If your a praying person, please pray we fill these orders quick..Glad they all sold, or I would be up a creek..I think for the 330.00 and a couple of 190.00 I am going to overnight them, I will pay an extra 9.00 to get my money 1 1/2 weeks early..

I feel for you man, but this is exactly why I will never pre-sell anything. That and condition.

Earlier this year I had ordered two cases of walking dead season 2 trading cards and I got cut back to just two boxes. Imagine if I had pre-sold 24 boxes at $139 a box only to not be able to fill 90% of them.

Ive only ever pre sold one item(spiderman 700 midtown) and ill never do it again. Kind of nerve wracking to have someone send you money before you have item in hand. I didnt know if it would get here on time or come damaged.

Yea I did communicate with them that they were pre-orders waiting to be delivered..but yea..very nerve racking and expensive..The worst part is, I only need 2 avenging and 2 midtowns, to fill these 2 orders, the graded presales were communicated and explained, that grading wise it would me 9.6 or better or money back..

I was contemplating doing a presale for my Midtown ASM 700 since it shipped near end of December but I guess I'm glad I didn't... it's still not here yet >____> hoping it didn't get lost and hoping prices don't go down lol

I told them 9.6 or higher, if not they don't have to buy it. If they don't buy, I can re-list. I got 5 shipments today, all winnings on the auctions and top cow..Where is my midtown crap..

The thing that really bites is that I have a bunch of orders that could be shipped if Avenging was here already, and its not even a pre-order..lol..

Ok ok, I should never pre-sell..I figured giving a general rating of 9.6 or higher would be good..But the wait for the issues is killing me..I had to sell my Amazing 300 today..I am learning..
