Unhappy Popow orchids and ebay seller Lepantes

The ebay account is related to the website so i've asked if i could have website and ebay s/h combined and he agreed.

hallo you can pay all in one time tell me the items you want and i send together best regards boscha
I've hasked him how to pay but he didnt reply for 2 days, I waned to pay regulary ebay plants with paypal and so I did, plus I've made another payment for website plants with paypal too.
He never accepted that payment and today i've got just my 2 ebay plants

plants pics

Well at least i've got these plants but I wasent gonna make the order if I could only choose between ebay plants so this is very unfair

Just to sweeten up my mood it was a mass order and I'm the one who payed, etc and the only one who hasent got anything

I've bought from him 4-5 times already, and have always been pleased. I bought once from his website, and the rest were off ebay. I'm thinking of bidding on some more this week!
I think part of your problem is that he doesn't understand English all that well. I have emailed him a few times, and sometimes I think that he didn't understand part of what I was asking. And he has always accepted my payments right away. As for the delay in replying to emails, I think that he runs his place practically by himself, and also goes to shows, so he needs time to catch up with emails.
Sorry you're having a bad time with him, I've had nothing but good experiences. Once I only got 1 very small plant off ebay (a Haraella), and he was kind enough to reduce shipping from 8,50€ to 5€. I was pleasantly surprised by that gesture.

I hope that you get this sorted out soon!

Yes, i'm pretty sure the problem was the language but that dont concern me. If you take the responsability to comunicate in english and you even make an agreement with me in that way then your duty is to honor the agreement and be able to comunicate with me if i need it.
At least this is how i see this all...

Oh and by the way english aint my first language and I did mind to keep a very easy english

Hi,
I ordered several times plants fom and was always satisfied with what I got. The plants come in a pretty good quality. Just once he mixed up the plant name and description with the wrong picture in one of his ebay auctions. I asked him to clarify which plants was for sale. In the end I won the auction without an answer from him (I was interested in both species, so I didn't mind). I was really suprised when I opened the packet and found both plants, the described and the shown one together with a short note. So I got the second plant for free, although it was about twice as much worth as the other one.

Once I bought in an ebay auction a really tiny Phalaenopsis (a young Phal. parishi lobbii) and got another similar orchid for free from him because of the high costs for the tiny plantlet. From how many dealers you can say this?

So albeit communication is a problem, even in German, the plants are worth the trouble. The quality is good, the price is OK and delivery quite fast.
