  1. Waybackmachine is a good one if I remember correctly. If you have the link to it, it has the various versions of it even if it was deleted. Screenshots are good for a permanent reference too.
  2. Ah, thank you for the clarification, Rikki. Yes, I was thinking they were a seller, not a buyer.
  3. To Saltminer: If you paid through paypal, you'll have to file a dispute (that is if it is within the 180 days/approximate 6 months) and escalate it to a claim before the duration for the dispute expires (7-10 days? I always forget there...) If you start a dispute, escalate it to a claim or it will auto-close. If you close a dispute (or let it expire), you can't dispute it again.
  4. I've used Kofi and it did list them as "gifts" for those transactions, which made disputes/claims harder to achieve, but it doesn't make it impossible. To OP: You can give it a shot since you're still within that window, but better make sure to have all your evidence handy if you intend to pursue this.
  5. If it's listed as a 'donation', you may or may not be able to get your money back. You could try since you're still within that window, but I think the rules are a bit different due to gifts.
  6. Do you have a way to get your money back (if it already pulled)? If so, I would send one more message at approximately the 4 month mark to let them know that you would be requesting a refund (or chargeback if that option is available through the means you paid through) at the 5 month mark due to the lack of contact provided by the business. Until the 4 month mark, I would hold off for a bit to see if they respond. After that point, I would initiate the contact one last time to let them know of the situation and your intentions due to the lack of communication on their part.
  7. While I don't receive commissions personally, if Paypal converts it to standard currencies, maybe you should add in a line that says "Please convert to (insert your preferred currency) before sending."?
  8. If needed, would it be an idea to have an updated reference (if ref-sheet of a character) so that you can say that the artwork was made by someone you trust? I'm having to go through something like that with artists that I've had some sour experiences with. The artists were good, and the artwork provides the details, but I feel the art-style would make me think of the bad moments too much, but that is just me and my two-cents-worth.
  9. No problem. Didn't see the tag-updates, but saw that and figured it might be useful/relevant for this beware.
  10. From the link Bourbon dropped, it looks like they're trying to transfer to https://www.furaffinity.net/user/darlingdoeling. as per their journal here: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/9786193/
  11. It depends on the rules for your bank, but sometimes banks have the same window as paypal (180 days from transaction). It wouldn't hurt to look into it.
  12. Filing a dispute/escalating to a claim in paypal (if you used that for payment) is usually your last line of communication, but if you could not get through to the artist before this point, you might need to resort to doing this. If you do go through this, make sure you do not close the dispute (or let it auto-close without escalation) if you don't get what you paid for. Once a dispute is closed, you cannot reopen it and a claim cannot be filed. Also disputes will auto-close within a certain number of days (one week to ten days if my memory serves me right? could be mistaken here). Make sure you have exhausted all means you know of, but if time is running short on that protection window, then you may need to resort in the dispute/claim process.
  13. As of this time and if https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/9738898/ is to be believed, Nika has 45 commissions (including collabs) that are awaiting completion. Of those 45, 28 are not even started if I'm reading that journal right (21 being listed as (%0) and 7 having no progress % listed). Of those that have a progress amount: 11 are below %50 So in total, 39 out of 45 (or approximately 87%) of Nika's total commissions are not yet out of the lineart phase. If you all want me to break it down further from what I can see, most of these are YCH's that aren't even out of the 'presketching' phase.
  14. BBCode doesn't seem to like me here, so I'll drop links to the images, let me know if they work here. This is how an email-notice for an invoice looks to the recipient. https://i.imgur.com/SUYCHPU.png Here's what they would see on their paypal dashboard page https://i.imgur.com/zHO8BQg.png If they go to their activity-page, they will see this: https://i.imgur.com/4tA2uKg.png After they find their invoice, this is what they should see: https://i.imgur.com/UxdjeLK.png And lastly, this will be be in the pop-up page for paying for the invoice: (note, it may be in a small-window that does not fit everything in it like this) https://i.imgur.com/A5YVFAf.png
  15. Ah, okay. Sorry for the confusion on that. And to be honest, if they do a "Send payment" there is a chance they may accidentally use "Friends and Family", which is unwise on multiple parts (could harm the artist if the artist receives too many payments like that, prevents disputes/claims if a situation arises within the normal 180 day window, ect.). If you need to, simply mentioning about the preventing of disputes and claims might deter some people from trying to use the "Send Payment" and might encourage them to request an invoice.
  16. I'll drop this here for the how-to for sending an invoice. https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-create-and-send-an-invoice-faq3144 Now, when I get an invoice to pay, I'll see if I can make a step-by-step on how the commissioner sends the payment through the invoice. I have to wait until Thursday first though. Edit: Here is the text-based instructions on how to do it from paypal's site: https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-pay-a-money-request-or-invoice-faq2206
  17. I've seen only the commissioner-side of invoices (never made one myself), but I know that by default Paypal sends a copy to the email-listed for the recipient's Paypal account and also puts up a notice of a "To be paid" or "Requires attention" (or something else of that effect) on the main-page when the person accesses their account. Invoices that are awaiting-payment usually get put to the forefront while other already-performed activity gets separated. Next time I get an invoice, I may have to screenshot it to show how it looks (with censoring PII of course).
  18. Tacking on the cost of court/legal fees may not be of much benefit, though do some locations even go so far in the law to add an 'interest per day' in terms of unpaid contracts?
  19. An odd thought to bring up, but since Celestina brought up that talking about negative experiences is protected by law made me think of this possibility: Could a small-claims case be brought up against Bad Coyote / CritterCanvas for the reason of 'accepting payment and not fulfilling contract' (not providing goods promised) due to the amount that was paid? From what I see, you have: proof of payment, approximate timeline/deadline, and the lack-of-product/lack-of-attempt seems to be a lot of evidence against the said artist. It may be a bit difficult if the artist and client are within local-distance of each other, but I do wonder if it is a possibility.
  20. Something else that might be an idea is to make sure you have a pose in mind and what details you want refined down. For example, having a simple akimbo pose is a good detail, also having a front view and a back view are good as well (some go a step-further and have a side-view too. Details of the eyes and any body markings (tattoos, scars, beauty-marks, ect.) are good mentions too.
  21. Wouldn't an incomplete refund indicate that they were already in negative for their paypal balance before the refund initiated? It could be a possible indication that someone else might've performed a dispute/claim against them as well.
  22. @Thecharacterconsultancy I had to do a bit of backreading since the last time I posted on here, but MorgueBuddy might be right about something. The pattern of leaving people high-and-dry by making them work on the art without paying up-front means to me that they might consider doing a chargeback/claim/dispute filing before the time-period is up (February-March if my estimation of the window is right?) if they don't switch accounts. I would say hold onto any information you have pertaining to the transaction in anticipation that they may do so to you.
  23. Just got a 404 Error from the link, VinFang. And MorgueBuddy, it looks like the new account might be trying to use their itch.io site more? Their Facebook page is non-existent (even with attempting to just copy-paste it instead of clicking on the link from the profile), their DA is deactivated, I don't get anything from trying to search up their Dealers Den they have listed, but their TransFur they have linked has barely any information (albeit it does provide their email publicly if you are trying to re-establish contact?).
  24. Check to see if you have an ad-blocker/tracker-blocker (Ublock Origin, Ghostery for example) that might be hindering it. If you can't find out what's preventing it and try again without it active, see if they can accept an email with the uploaded documents as attachments?
  25. When you do so for the verification, see if they can send you an email-copy of all the requirements they need to make sure. As for the "proof of delivery", I don't think it should be an issue unless the buyer files a claim and mentions that the "item was not delivered". You could always change it to "delivered" when the commission is finalized and approved.
