How would you handle this... Loosing faith in customer - Page 3

post #31 of 68
Think about it - they had until 6 p.m. - you heard nothing. You then called and left them a message that their order was cancelled and then all of a sudden they paid! I don't think so . . .

Well it sounds like the general consensus is to return the payment and forget about the order and I would agree with this.

So what are you going to do?

Is this a wedding cake?

I think I would have sent it back, that's just too weird for me to be comfortable with. I have a feeling she is furiously baking and/or decorating as we speak.

"furiously baking or decorating" LOLLLLL!!

I agree with EVERYONE else. Refund and DO NOT engage with this customer. You contradict your own statements when you say "I need the money by XXX date or I just can't do it" then they pass said date and time and pay you and miraculously you can now do it. For some reason some people think they are doing US the favor with an exceptionally under priced order...enjoy your weekend instead!

Don't move your line in the sand. Red Flags are there for a reason...don't ignore them. If you want your customers to take you seriously then you have to stick to your guns. It is, after all, THEIR loss. Refund it. imho.....

Due to non-payment I regret to inform you that your cake order has been canceled.

Thats exactly what I would say as well. Just be polite and "have a nice day"

What are they thinking? You tell them the cake has been cancelled so they pay you? That saying "you snooze, you loose" is definitely applicable here. They are trying to guilt you into it because "I paid." I agree with everyone that you should send the money back and not make the cake. Your are setting yourself up for trouble.
