    For Sale Forum

    Is it just me or are some of the things in the For Sale Forum sooooooooooo expensive.... what beats me is this is a money saving, bargain hunting forum... half the items being sold have probably already been bought at reduced prices and yet the sale price is being based on RRP !!!! Obviously people just wont buy these things if they are too expensive but theres so much for sale in there everyday it gets a bit boring after a while due to some of the crazy asking prices! Ruins it a bit for everyone.

    Probably because no-one expects to get there asking price on here, most things get sold for a lower offer.

    people normally complain that you cant achieve top prices on here:)

    It's a matter of opinnion, on here you do get knocked down at a ridiculous rate.

    But u shouldnt really expect to get top prices I dont think... most of the things for sale are clothes items, even items worn are looking for good money ! If u picked these things up at a car booty for etc youd pay pennies for them. But in saying that the postage is a killer isnt it.
    As u say tho i guess u can always make an offer as the seller wont be expecting to get the full asking price anyway...

    Indeed! Really bugs me when someone posts "whats ya best price" for something 5 minutes after it has been posted. Well, quite possibly the OP wants something near the asking price perhaps?! :roll: :-D

    and just to add, if someone trys to sell a game for £15 that has previously been a deal at £12 then it doesnt take long for someone to point that out....lol

    "Nice laptop. I'd like to offer you one third your asking price, but only if you also throw in a memory stick, one of your children, and if you send first. Look at my feedback, I'm basically doing you a favour with this offer."

    Who's losing out if the prices are "too high"?

    I've been considering selling on the FS/FT, I was going to use the lowest online price and reduce accordingly.
    e.g. New/Sealed Logitech G500 £38.99 (Dell), sell on HUKD £32.99 (inc P&P).

    Nicely summed up!

    As a FS/FT regular the only thing that still never fails to amaze me is the needless attempt to haggle... "50p!?!?!?... I'lll give you 45p for second class delivery..."

    I think its fair to ask a decent price for things BNWT, BNIB... but when its second hand goods people seem to look for far too much sometimes... although there are for def good bargains to be had on the forums

    If you think someones bought something in a deal and is out for a profit ask for receipt and if they don't have one then move on if you think they are at it. I've always found items for good prices and sold for resonable on here but I usually deal with gaming.

    Your don't have to buy/sell stuff on here to be a member so if you don't like the FS just enjoy doing your spending on deals. It could be worse Ebay manage to sell things over RRP all the time
