your competitors clearly never leave the fucking house.....
BIG FAT SOUR GRAPES.
The only time I ever go on there is to try and get an England '82 home shirt, and every time I'm disheartened at how much it eventually goes for
I've gotta get back into the swing of it soon though. Got my magpie eye on some Pioneer CDJ800 mk IIs...
whatever you bid on, the fuckers who sell get mates to bid up for them. What were you after? I may have one for a akate
Have faith and take comfort in the fact YOU DO HAVE A LIFE.
If you really want the stuff, try harder, or get a WAP phone.
I got a pocket sized Casio tv for £11!
and now hasn't said ANYTHING and as they were the only bidder I can't even offer it to anyone else. GRRRR...
and they'll let you relist for free.
Or send warning emails through the system and see if they respond.
I'm leaving it a week though, just in case they mistimed it with a holiday or something.
They're a new account so the bad feedback thing won't really mean a lot.
ebay used to be good, but they've managed to kill it with their stupid rules...
The worst thing is that they changed the search engines, so Yanks don't see records listed anywhere else without pushing more buttons (they don't bother), the dollar is weak (not their fault, admittedly), and they upped the final value percentage on records and cds to NINE PERCENT! that's a fuckload more than anything else
Time for a competitor methinks
It's good for some things. Like recently I sold my car on there. I just wanted rid of it and got £230 for it, but the bad thing was that the buyer was a retard and had to be treated with kid gloves.
I've also had non-buyers wasting time and most of the prices are WELL over the top.
Mostly I stick to looking at drums and there hasn't been a decent bargain on there for ages. I bought a lot of cymbals on there for a good price recently, but there just isn't the selection any more.
All greedy little sheep trying to make a fast buck off the unsuspecting buyer. I believe that most people havve actually wised up to this fact.
its definitely better for buying than selling at the moment...
The price of records has really dropped, for all but the most legendarily rare stuff and the really common shit that everyone knows. The mid range- rare, good and obscure stuff just seems to have died.
Patience and research are good though- I got a fenton weill electric guitar for ninety quid and a korg ms-10 for £250- both well under what they normally go for
Conversely i just flogged a couple of reggae albums that normally do £60+ easily, and they only made a tenner apiece...not SO bad cos they only cost pence each for me to buy, but its annoying, cos it makes me doubt whether its worth selling records on there at all if that's the situation
hah ahaha fantastic! Will do
I watch them quite a lot- you can get one for much less than £290...if my memory serves that one had the original cardboard packing case it came in from the factory, hence the premium.
They are cool guitars. I'm a little miffed cos I just sold one of those plastic hagstroms to fund a synth purchase- and the guy that bought it has a shop, and relisted it, only to have some mong bid more for it already. People don't research enough. First thing I do if I want something is to find out how much the last one went for, and try and get it cheaper, not fifty quid more!
I dunnnae think it's a case of competitors not leaving the house...
you can set up puter-bots to bid for you EVERYTIME someone else bids. It completely ruins it.
I sold a 60s philcorda on there for 280 pounds once and the starting bid was only 50 so I can't complain as two people wanted it and the battle commenced. However those 'battlebots' Darcers goes on about are infuriating.
