    Verstuurd via DPD zonder aangetekende optie, nooit gekomen, met annulering van de aankoop heeft Catawiki de probleem opgelost, tot mijn volle tevredenheid !

    Het is jammer dat je me geen tijd laat controleren voordat je negatieve feedback onmiddellijk plaatst!

    In feite (ter informatie) werd het pakket verzonden door DPD 'track and trace', het is zeker geen goedkope optie in vergelijking met Post NL!

    Ik probeer te ontdekken wat er met het boek is gebeurd. Ik waardeer je geduld.
