Long Shipping Times
Due to the unique nature as to how Purse functions; matching Shoppers (you) with Earners (individuals seeking to liquidate their gift-card balances). There are some important things to know when proceeding to make a purchase on Purse using Name Your Discount.
Because Earners are only paid when an item has arrived and is confirmed by the Shopper who is seeking to purchase the goods; and because they are trying to get money in a timely manner (Earners’ have bills and rent to pay) — it’s important transactions complete quickly.
Therefore, Earners who are trying to liquidate their balances quickly will normally cancel an order they’ve accepted if it appears it will take too long to complete.
Some of the issues relating to long shipping times can include:
• Item is not in stock/low stock/unavailable
• Processing takes multiple days before an item will ship (the price of Bitcoin is volatile and can affect earnings)
• Item has limited shipping options and will take a longtime to fulfill (Amazon has many items that ship from China, for instance)
