Sorry, missed the beginning of this thread- was out of town for a
few weeks. So if I get this wrong, I apologize in advance.....
If you're talking about actually getting a check for your COD
package, I've always received a check. Now, whether or not that check
cleared was a different story!!!! If you use UPS, it can take up to
three weeks to get the check to you, and another few days to see if
the check bounces or not!
I really really dislike COD.
From a few bad experiences, I don't even offer it. If someone digs
their heels in and insists then I take a deposit. If they balk at the
deposit then I don't take the order. What's to stop them from
rejecting the package once it arrives there? Or cancelling at the
last minute? If they're not gonna take it I have no recourse. For a
"smallie" like me, it sucks. Everything is hand-made to order so if I
spent the time and $$$$ making their order I want to make sure they
pay for it.
Sorry if this is totally off target from the initial post.
