PLEASE do not bid/buy, if you do not intend to pay!

Just a little PSA reminding you to think twice before you make purchases, as you're not able to come to Diaperswappers looking for someone to bail you out. (It violates our spam rules.)
We're seeing an increase in the number of 'oops I didn't mean to buy this' and 'please outbid me' threads reported, so I figured I'd make a general announcement.
In summary, if you don't have enough PayPal, will have to default on a mortgage payment, or will be presented divorce papers for making a diaper (or other) purchase, DO NOT CLICK 'BUY'!
You will have to pay for it and wait till it comes to your house, then list it in FSOT to get your money back.
Isn't it easier to just click out of the listing?

I thought we weren't supposed to "bid" on diapers at all on DS--no auction style sales, right? So how could someone outbid someone else to help them out?

Re: PLEASE do not bid/buy, if you do not intend to pay!

No bidding here. This is an old thread.

Apparently at one time people would bid on ebay but not be able to afford the cost. To solve the issue they would, apparently, then come to DS and ask the general membership to outbid them thereby avoiding having to pay. I have not seen this in the 3 years I have been on here so it isn't currently an issue.
