Any warnings regarding buying on Spot's Corner?

I've been looking at Spot's Corner but noticed some chatter about watching out for certain postings and/or sellers. How has everyone's experiences been? Does anyone have any advice on what to watch out for so I don't get taken advantage of?

I've had good experiences except this last time. Over ten days no confirmation number no seller response. Always check feedback.

You can always check feedback or contact them and ask for more somewhere else. I have never had an issue and I buy from spots about 2x a week.

I've had great luck selling and buying, but I did have a couple mamas leave negative feedback for issues I either didn't realize or think were there. I've never had trouble selling here and always deal with sweet mamas and I have great feedback, but I got some just hateful comments over there Probably won't sell there again, but I'm not too hesitant to buy!

I have NEVER yet had a bad exp on spots. like, the closest I could say would be a mama didnt ship out a diaper for, like, 10 days. finally I contacted her, and she gave me some story about living in a rural area, and her post man only came, like, once a week or something, LOL. but she DID ship the diaper that day. i buy on there a loooooooooooooooot

I've bought a few things on there and never had a bad experience. Like a PP poster said check feedback.

I buy from spots a lot. If anything I notice most items are not as well described as they are on here, but you can message and ask questions.

Re: Any warnings regarding buying on Spot's Corner?

While I find that descriptions and communication seem to be better here, I've never had a bad experience on spots either. The one time things did take extremely long, it all got resolved in the end. I always check on fb and mention my ds feedback, as I have very little there. As items need to be shipped to Canada in my case, I always find it a little discerning that there is sometimes no communication whatsoever and I suddenly find my item in the mail seemingly out of nowhere...
