Can anyone tell me the rules on backing out of a trade...Without mentioning names at this point..I will say that I agreed to green for someone..When I bought the offer and it did not clear immediately, MY respondent backed out of the trade. I still PAID for the offer, yet must wait 7 days in accordance with the site's rules to request a manual trade. Is this acceptable? When my respondent backed out, he offered to pay the $7 it cost me to complete the offer for fact I received a post from him saying that he DID send the 7..but alas..he did not.. Is there recourse for me or am I just S.O.L.?

It depends what the description of the trade was in the trade module.

If it greens, he must pay you or do your site. If it doesn't just take the $7. If he doesn't complete your site or pay you contact a moderator and he'll either pay you or get banned.

Ok thats what I thouhgt..He DID offer to pay the 7....However he PM'dme YESTERDAY said he did send it...but did not..I have tried to contact him but have gotten no response..In fairness how long should I wait for a response before I go any further? It could be any number of errors or missed communication and I dont want to jump the gun....

Like I said - look at the terms of the trade. If he set it up that you must green within a certain time period, then he is within his rights to cancel the trade. If there was no time limit written anywhere in the trade description, then yes, you should PM a mod.
