Another online reseller was victimized by a cruel customer who cancelled his order of two mountain bikes amounting to P 12,000, says GMA News report.

Reseller Prince Salvador travelled to San Mateo, Rizal on a motorcycle all the way from Valenzuela City to deliver the bikes to his buyer.

Sadly, when Salvador arrived at the delivery address, the customer refused to accept his orders.

“Ang gusto niya po kasi, pagdating dito, halos walang galos. Dalawa po ‘yung order niya na mountain bike. Ipinaliwanag ko naman po na hindi maiiwasan ‘yon kasi Antipolo pa po ‘yung deliver eh sa Valenzuela pa po galing,” said Salvador

The buyer allegedly cancelled the orders and refused to take the bikes, which left the reseller empty handed.

“Nalulungkot po ako, naiiyak, kasi ‘di ko po alam ang gagawin ko,” he said. “Malaking pera po ito!”

“Sana kunin pa rin niya ‘yung bike dahil confirmed ‘yung order. Ako po kasi ang nag-aabono ng lahat ng delivery. Cash on hand po ang delivery,” Salvador said, adding that he is running on a small capital.

Indeed, on the spot cancellation of orders hurt many of small-time enterprises and resellers like Salvador who turned to online selling due to COVID-19 situation.

This kind of scenario has been happening to a lot of online sellers lately, some are delivery riders, who rely on small daily income to get by.

Recently, a bill has been filed in the House of Representative seeking to penalize customers who would cancel orders of food and grocery orders.

Under the said measure, violators could get  at least six years of jail time and a penalty of P 100,000 along with the reimbursement of cancelled order.
