Agree 100%, should only be able to sell at cost or less, but unfortunately that won't stop people doing it as they will just use Amazon Marketplace or Ebay instead.
I was going to post this the other day but thought better of it as ide already had a moan about the amount of catalogue deals continually posted with discount codes :oops:

I agree that it wont stop some but maybe some will read this and see that they are noticed :thumbsup:
I've spotted a member selling (at a profit) in the for sale section, a mobile phone that he has bought through one of the deals posted on the site (admitted on the OP). We all know some people buy multiples of items to try to make a profit on ebay, but to try and sell it back to the community that gave him the chance to buy it in the first place rubs it in a little bit. On each deal there are people who missed out and were dissapointed, and this I feal should not be allowed. Sometimes you can buy something on impulse and be dissapointed when you receive it, and decide to sell it, but selling in the for sale section under such circumstances should be done at cost rather than for a profit.

Any opinions?

There is enough rules on this site already we do not need any new ones.Even if they do make a profit if the person who is buying it is happy with the deal who cares.

i agree, also it would be a difficult rule to enforce, im afraid you have to be very quick with the hot deals.
It is sad that people use these forums to make profit out of those that give ther time in posting deals for free, i bet those that do this give nothing to this forum but take both from the forum and its members, shame on them
I think it is an area where it is up to the person whether they sell at cost or not but that they should say that they got the phone on x deal here and for how much. If the deal is over and the offer is still cheap but more than the person paid it can still be a deal to a buyer.

Obviously if it was a bulk sale or someone who is blatantly buying and the re-selling we'd stop that. However, if it's just a personal sale because someone changed their mind or whatever then I think there can be a situation that is acceptable (seller gets rid of something he doesn't want and buyer gets a cheap price).

So I think as long as it's a personal sale, that it isn't a buy/resell situation and that the original info is posted then it's up to a buyer whether it's a deal. Personally I wouldn't resell at higher than cost but I am not sure whether we should make a rule bannign people from doing so.

Edit: Just looking on the prices in this situation. I think he probably got the offer for around £90 and is listing here for £125. Now thing is as far as I can see it's £170 elsewhere. So....
This post made me chuckle a little. You are lucky to be able to get 75% of cost on a brand new item in the FS forum. Anyone that thinks they can sell at a profit is sadly quite delusional :giggle:
You'd get more in a car boot sale on 95% of items to be quite honest, and certainly more on fleebay. Anyone who manages to turn a small profit in trading in the FS forum deserves admiration to be honest.

Which brings me to the point ... what is so wrong with profit? People here speak like it is against the law to earn enough to pay the bills :thinking:
No-one is making anyone purchase anything in there. The fact is that most buyers are just looking to take advantage of some poor soul's misfortune and make a profit for themselves by trading out on ebay :whistling:

Who is the real crook, the seller who simply wants an item's true worth or a buyer who wants it for nowt?
As long as the buyer and seller don't have a problem with it, why should anybody else?
