I don't know of anyone having problems on Aquabid but as OkieMavis said, I always check reputations before buying anything. The same goes for E-bay when it's me on this end. I also get most of my supplies and some fish on line and find that the typical vendor is trying very hard to keep their good reputation. What that means is you buy 6 of something and 7 arrive or there is a free sample of a related product or some other measure that makes it a memorably good transaction.
The worst case that I can remember was when I bought something, paid for it and never heard from the seller again. About the time that I started to worry about it, the package arrived at my door. The negative in this for me was that I was not used to silence after the sale since most vendors make darned sure that you know your product is on the way and also make sure that you know the moment it gets to the shipper.
In a recent transaction, I asked a vendor if they had a product to recommend that I did not see in their on line catalog. When I didn't hear from them right away, I ordered a similar product from their catalog. I got a phone call a few hours later asking if I really had wanted to order the product that I had been asking about or if I wanted the specific item from the catalog. That kind of interaction is one reason I keep going back to a site. These guys were determined to get me exactly the product that I wanted.

Bear in mind when doing online transactions, mail boxes can be full, some isp's block other isp's, spam filters and blockers may be losing e-mails. It might take an e-mail or two to figure out what the obstruction is, its quite possible a seller is responding to your messages and something like a spam fiter is losing their reply.

At some times of the year, busy seasons might be so hectic, the correspondence is flying in to seller faster than replies, or parcels can be done... general or vague enquiries might not be so easy to reply to at very busy times of year

Regards, andy
