    Default *Fluff* Who should be responsible for change?

    Completely inane thread lol If someone sells an item on FB or gumtree and another person comes to pick up that item, who should be responsible for having change? Seller or buyer? Why?

    Please no fighting over this highly contentious issue, I don't want this thread closed

    Buyer. They know the cost and how much cash they have on them and how much they need.

    Seller can't know what cash the person has so shouldn't be forced to hoard large amount of cash "just in case".

    Opposite to when buying from a shop IMO

    Buyer. And if they don't have exact money they should ask before coming if the seller has change

    I've never bought or sold on line but if I did as a seller and had people coming into my home I'd specify on the invoice that exact cash has to be given as I have no change - so then it's clearly the buyers responsibility- but I can see if it wasn't specified maybe the buyer assumes there would be change if your shop is at home?

    I think that would be a slightly dif scenario to the one I envision

    If you sell a lot from home and could call it a "shop" then I agree that there would be an expectation for reasonable change to be available. I don't think change more than $50 should be expected in such a situation, and most likely would be under $20 worth of change.

    If it is just a family selling occasional items, then my original response stands. If I am slack and don't have exact change for an item,I tell them to keep the change because it's my fault I couldn't give exact money.

    I forgot about people that run those sort of businesses from home!

    Buyer!

    Ugh, the amount of times that I've had people come to pick things up and not had the correct amount, so I ended up just giving it to them cheaper 😒

    Hmmm... I think if it is a 'store' the seller needs to have change (to an extent) available. If it is just some random stuff you are selling off the buyer needs the exact payment. Or they need to communicate they have $x note and confirm if you have change.

    Buyer only. As you know how much it is going to be. As a seller you can't be expected to have a heap of change hanging around the house these days.
