Ethics Question

I placed an order with a crafter before Christmas - Dec 14th. I told her no big hurry, didn't have to have it for Christmas, but would like it by the end of the year.
I thought I would be polite, and instead of 'goods' I payed under the category 'gift' using pay pal.

Jan, 9th, I still hadn't received it, and I emailed her, she said it was finished and would be in the mail that week.

Jan 26th, still haven't received it (she is in the same state, it should have took no more than 2 days) I emailed her and asked for my money back, I can't dispute it on PayPal, because it wasn't a delivered good. She said, no problem - still haven't received the payment.

So - now - Do I post on her facebook page, incase she does this to everyone to let them know it can take a while? Prolly not. No matter what I would try to do, I would come across as an asshole. Do I leave it alone and just eat it? My only choice? Surely not.

What would you do?


  1. It's a tricky one Tish. Maybe a polite reminder on her facebook page. Not the best customer service on her part is it.

  2. Oh I do not know what I would do but I know I would be fuming! Hope it resolves itself without you having to do anything.

  3. I would probably blast them out on facebook... but Im fiesty. :P If she's done this to you, she'll do it to others too.
