Choosing a retailer

After you've decided to buy a product, you'll have to pick the retailer you want to purchase it from.

From the Product page, you'll see a list of all the retailers that sell the product, how much each retailer is currently charging for it, each retailer's average customer rating for the product and whether the retailer is currently stocking the product.

If you're thinking about buying from a particular retailer, click on Visit Store and you'll be taken to the Product page on that retailer's website.

From there, you can either purchase the product or go back to MrBuyGuy.com and view the product on another retailer's website.

Note that MrBuyGuy is not responsible for your safety or security on an external website, so shop carefully.

What can I do if I don’t get paid?

There can be many reasons why you have not received payment.. Contact the Buyer, using the information available on their profile, and send them email reminders if possible. You can relist your item once more, so  other buyers can purchase it,  if your buyer fails to respond to you.
