  1. Your account name has been reverted and your comment to go to the offsite website has been hidden.  You are not permitted to try and move people off site to unverified websites. 

    We have permitted you to post both of your comments that you have posted on your beware, so the petulant accusations of bias will not be tolerated.  If you had an update all you had to do was notify a staff member.  The thread was locked for everyone; not just you.

    Despite your behavior, you will not be given an official warning.  Your name change and status update privileges have been revoked, however.  This is simply a polite reminder to mind our rules and behave.  If you continue, then official action will continue.

  2. It sounds like you got a bad rep, which unfortunately happens. Especially if you get assigned an international rep, which aren't always as versed in the ToS. Which line did you call, but more importantly which country are you using? The US agreement for instance spells out clearly no fees may be charged. https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full#accepting-payments
  3. So a few things: - She links directly to her ToS to Paypal, where she's advertising she's charging Paypal fees. I hope she knows if Paypal sees that they may close her Paypal account as that's very much against their ToS and way higher than the actual fees Paypal charges to the seller. Also, all it takes is one disgruntled client to report that Paypal fees are being charged to lose one's account. - No refunds ever clauses are unethical and we at Artists Beware do not honor them. If your wait time is so long that you have to force people to wait until nearly the end of Paypal's protection time, then you both need to up your prices and stop taking on so many commissions. Commission money is not yours until you've delivered the finished product to the client. This is why we tell people to not touch "no refunds ever" artists with a 10 ft pole, because it usually comes hand in hand with other bad business practices. Anyhow, as we advised privately, the best course of action is to call Paypal. They usually will resolve these types of issues immediately over the phone in your favor. Doubly so now if you bring up this seller is violating their ToS and making clients wait beyond the end of protection to get their item.
  4. For a lot of customer service reps online they have quotas to meet which means they may cut corners. It's not paypal specific, unfortunately. With calling them the customer service agents are under less pressure to keep a high volume up, thus you're likely to get better results.
  5. As a note: When we approved this, the shouts were already on the client's page. To our users: Please don't participate as well. Spamming people's shouts only make them shut down and doesn't get resolution for the OP. To OP: You can use more than one email for the same Paypal account. Also, please call. Never use their automated system. You can still call and potentially have them reopen or pay you back out of pocket.
  6. We've gone ahead and approved this as the oldest owed item hits our 3 month minimum.
  7. Comments are closed because this maker has issued legal threats against artists beware.
  8. A comment was not posted as we do not allow pseudo bewares to be made in the comments. If individuals would like to talk about their case, then they must review the submission guides and submit an official post. Additionally, we do not permit name calling or hostile language. We ask that all submissions and comments be written somewhat professionally. This isn't a drama site.
  9. Paypal is 180 days, and most banks are along the same vein (but not all).
  10. Unresolved cases are always bewares, and there are no time limits for them. Cautions are for when you already got your refund.
  11. Hey! Sorry for the delay; I had forgotten to follow my own thread. No, this has always been a soft rule that we applied when we felt it was necessary behind the scenes. We've had bewares on minors as young as 9. We simply felt it was important to put as many of these behind the scenes rules on paper as possible.
  12. Twitter: https://twitter.com/skxviii Furaffinity: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/skxviii/ Timeframe: My first commission with Sid was placed in June 2021. My most recent one was placed September 2021. I have commissioned Sid numerous times, and each time has been exactly the same experience. Sid is professional, sticks to their deadlines, and delivers top notch work at lightning fast speeds. Turnaround was usually a few days to a week or two. If Sid says it'll be done by (date) it will be done by then. I highly recommend Sid if you need work done.
  13. We have updated our submission guidelines to clarify the max cut off for a Caution. It is now one (1) year. Any Caution that has been resolved more than one (1) year ago will be rejected. We have also added a minimum age for minors. We will not accept posts concerning minors under the age of 16. We won't be putting kids on the spot. If there is a post on someone who was under 16 at the time, please notify us and we will scrub it. Our mods will do our best to look for them ourselves, but we see literally hundreds of posts. But what if I find out later that they were under 16? The purpose of this addition is to avoid putting kids on the spot all together. So, we will have to decline the post or delete it. It's best to contact the payment processor in the meantime. If you have any questions you may ask them here.
