It seems to me that whatever price the seller puts up, it is always too high.
Is it time to just ask "what will you pay" when putting up a FS thread? What's the problem with asking up front what the buyer is willing to pay, as opposed to being messed about?
You go low, and someone STILL tries to undercut the price. You go high, knowing that someone will undercut the price, and you just get told you need to lower the price! Lower the price and then back to square one, someone undercuts it! ffs. A no-win situation.
So, what about auction style threads in FS/FT? Surely it is up to members if they want to contribute to and entertain such threads. Why ban a perfectly legitimate sales method when, truthfully, it's the only viable fair option for the seller? It's a buyers market, so why insist on the seller setting a price that is always too high?
