  • Discogs Question

    Has anyone has issues with sellers not being able to find a purchased album on the site? This has happened to me and while my money has been happily refunded, have no idea why they "lost" the listed record. Did they get a better offer after my purchase? Or sold the LP on another site and just didn't remove it from Discogs?

    A bunch of sellers also have storefronts so the status of their inventory can be rather indeterminate.

      We sell on Discogs. When you have thousands of skus its impossible to keep the inventory in sync with your regular website. The back end of Discogs is a total shit storm making it even harder to sync and very time consuming.

        Exactly. It's really hard to keep track of everything.

        I had one album that was actually STOLEN from the store, as it's not there anymore, and it wasn't sold either...

        Yes. It happened to me three times and twice with the same seller whom I removed from my list. A fourth time, a seller had misplaced the record in his inventory and I gave him a few extra days to find it which eventullay happened.

          Yes it has happened. Lots of guys sell on multiple sites and have a store. Easy to happen and no big deal.

            As a seller, if youre going to list on multiple sites, you still have an obligation to close out all the listing once you sell on one of them.

              You've never worked back end retail then. I remember it being hard enough to keep track of all the inventory items at one store. Having multiple sites with multiple software platforms must be a challenge. I've had this happen several times, each time I was refunded, once including the shipping for the entire order. Those are the guys that get my repeat business.

            Ken, I'm lost in the sales jargon! What do you mean "back-end?"

              The back end is the administrative part of the site that the consumer doesn't see. Its where we process orders, add/subtract inventory, correspond with customers, etc. Every e-commerce site has it. Its the engine that drives the site. Discogs' back end is an absolute disaster. They don't care. The designers are making money hand over fist. There are a lot of good aspects but the designers have no real interest in improving things for sellers.

            Never happened to me in about 40 orders I've made worldwide, but reading this, I now understand how it could happen. Thanks!

              On a number of occasions, I've bought a record from a seller on Discogs who, after the order was placed, discovered that they no longer had the record in inventory. I always attributed this to the failure to keep their listings up to date, rather than anything unscrupulous about the seller. I've bought a lot of records through discogs over the years. Quality, grading, responsiveness and price all obviously vary by seller.

                Similar experience here, vendor has an LP on multiple sites and looses track of his inventory. the apologies have been swift and almost always sincere, I haven't left anyone negative feedback over it.
