Just got an email from an Ebay buyer on the DX can I have listed on Ebay now. Starting price is $15.00 plus $10.00 priority shipping (can is full). He offers me $8.00 plus I ship the can for free. Now the can is not that great but it is not terrible either so he wants me to give him the can for free and I lose $2.00 shipping the can to him. I think I would rather do what DB did than sell this guy the can. I can understand the insult part.

What I hate is when someone lowballs an uninformed seller and gets away with it and then laughs about it.Word gets around.I think it's bad for the hobby.

This is a small pet pieve so I'll offer my $.02

I'm at a loss for people that have so much "pride" in the asking price to take low offers as an "insult".
I dont understand the overreaction to such a simple thing.

I counteroffer asking price-old signs, new cars, even $5 oil cans....
Doesn't always work, sometimes it does. I offer what I want to pay for an item.

All I need is a yes,no or somewhere in the middle, not some long explanation. No need to hang up, cuss me out,etc.
Am I talking about their mother or sister? No!
Are they assuming since I JUST met them I know what will or will not insult them?

Here are my answers to ANY offer:

"I'm firm on the price"
"No thanks"
"I'll go down to $XX.XX"

Bargaining is one thing; lowballing, another. Lowballers waste your time - how much is that worth?


Always looking for good Pure stuff, dude...

Mark, you are telling us, "HOW YOU FEEL and WHAT YOU WOULD DO". And it is great, for you, that you feel that way!

Last I checked though, we are all individuals and as such react differently to things that please us and insults us. Just because you wouldn't be upset, doesn't mean that everyone else has to or should react or feel as you do.

This person who owns the pump, reacted in a way that was correct for him, at the moment. And since they aren't returning phone calls, I will hazard a guess that it is still correct FOR THEM.

If someone else says I wouldn't react that way so there is something wrong with the first person.....

IMO, they might want to take a closer look at themselves and ask; am I so perfect that everyone else has to react like me?

When I get upset with people and I do often because I am very opinionated! Way too much so!! I lately have been taking a deep breath and ask myself the same question I just mentioned above. Why should I expect people to react as I would or as I want them to?

Is it OK then to offer a price when somebody has a set price? Lets say I am selling a sign for $100.00. That means I want 100 dollars for it, not $99.99 or any other lower amount. If I want less than that, or want to entertain offers, then I will ask the lesser amount right off the bat or say $100.00 OBO (OR BEST OFFER).

But then again, there are people who will want $100.00 for their sign, and mark it up to $125.00 so they have the wiggle room to lower it to $100.00 for the buyer, so the buyer feels like he got a good deal. My head hurts now.

Mark, It's not so much that someone makes a counter offer. It's often how that offer is delivered.
