We, the selling and buying community on BidorBuy.co.za ,make the following demands regarding the unethical changes to the fee structures which BidorBuy want to shove down our throats with no prior consultation with us sellers who are the ones who wil be drastically affected by this new policy, or the buyers who will be subjected to higher prices due to the increases sellers will need to implement to cover the new costs.
1. NO CHARGES LEVIED AGAINST SHIPPING COSTS, EXCEPT FOR SELLERS WHO ABUSE THE SHIPPING AND OVERCHARGE FOR SHIPPING, AS PER THE POLICY THAT IS ALREADY IN PLACE. WE HONEST SELLERS WHO CHARGE ONLY OUR COST FOR DELIVERY (AND SOMETIMES EVEN LESS THAN OUR COST) REFUSE TO BE TAKEN FOR A RIDE AND BE CHARGED DUE TO A FEW USERS ABUSING THE SYSTEM. CHARGE THE ABUSERS, WE WILL NOT PAY FOR THEIR UNETHICAL ACTIONS!!!!!
2. BIDORBUY MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO PENALIZE SELLERS JUST DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE PRODUCT HE/SHE IS SELLING. SAME RATES FOR ALL SELLERS AS WAS DONE SINCE THE START OF BIDORBUY, EQUAL TREATMENT!!! TAKE THE 3 DIFFERENT CHARGES BASED ON CATEGORY, ADD THEM TOGETHER AND DIVIDE BY 3, YOU GET A CHARGE OF 7.25% ACROSS THE BOARD.
3 THE LISTED COMMISSION STRUCTURE AS ADVERTISED MUST ALSO INCLUDE VAT. NONE OF THIS BOLLOCKS THAT VAT IS EXCLUDED IN YOUR STATED PRICES. IT IS VERY EASY FOR YOU TO INCLUDE VAT IN YOUR ADVERTISED PRICES, SO WE DO NOT HAVE TO DO ALL THE MATH TO ADD THE VAT AFTERWARDS. EXCLUDING VAT LIKE THIS IS DONE FOR ONLY A SINGLE REASON, TO TRY AND DECEIVE SELLERS INTO BELIEVING THAT THE PRICE INCREASES ARE LESS THAN THEY REALLY ARE. DISHONEST AND UNETHICAL. I AM SURE YOU REALIZE NOW, JOHAN AND FELLOW MANAGEMENT, THAT US SELLERS ARE NOT AS STUPID AS YOU BELIEVED WE WERE AND WE VERY EASILY SEE THROUGH THIS DISHONEST PRACTICE OF TRYING TO HIDE THE REAL INCREASES BY EXCLUDING VAT. YOU SAY THAT THE OLD TIERED SYSTEM WAS COMPLICATED? WELL US AS SELLERS DISAGREE. IT WAS PERFECTLY EASY TO UNDERSTAND, AND HAS NOT CAUSED ANY PROBLEMS FOR SELLERS FOR ALL THE YEARS THAT THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN IN PLACE.
We, the undersigned,call on BidorBuy management to heed our demands for the good of the sellers, the buyers as well as the BidorBuy platform itself.
