    yeah i know i would have to do it maybe a couple at a time if i was to do it on here but i am looking to see how much i should sell for for me to get quick sales.

    If going to ebay, then you should do via BIN rather than auction (due to the quantity that you have)

    how did you get them?

    Off the back of a lorry obvo! Nice coats, i'd of had one but too short in body for me
    May not be off the back of a lorry really, i don't want to assume x

    from the same supplier as littlewoods my sister in law works for them which is why i could only get the same coat in the same style and size.

    BTW, I think £25 is a good price. That is as long as you are not making a loss

    think now you have posted this they would pull it anyway, as they would see it as you buying to sell on at a profit :thumbsup:

    all things said i would put one on ebay with a starting price of what you want and see where t goes, if lots of people bid you can offer 2nd, 3rd, 4th chances etc

    seems to be a very popular coat and is sold out on littlewoods at £70 the pic of the coat you have just posted is last years so that is probably why it is on sale at that price.

    You're advertising that you have 15 for sale, you already have a price in mind ("cant go as low as that etc"). If everyone did as you are doing the misc forum would be full of people 'just checking prices' for the job-lots of goods they had for sale, trading through PM etc etc. You won't be allowed to sell them at all here now (its clearly trading like behaviour) and you should be allowed to advertise you have them for sale (its self-promotion!)...

    You've already got a] FS/FT thread open for these (reported that too as obviously you are acting as a trader, the FS forum is explictly NOT for people to buy/sell in bulk for profit!!!)

    i can guarantee you i most certainly will not be selling them on this post or by pm etc. i just thought if people knew a decent price as i dont want to lose on them but at the same time need to be cheap enough to pass on.

    You're bulk trading - no two ways about it - you have 15, you're trying to profit on them, its not allowed and this thread is clearly self-promoting!

    Seconded - and reported the fs/ft thread:x

    Its OK to check prices in Misc forum. However, bulk selling is not allowed in FS/FT forum and now that greyparrot got the advise, this thread is now closed.
