cannot use cex as a comparison same as ebay products are not new/not in stock etc etc etc


reposting after it has been deleted will just get you in bother

cex.co.uk/pro…buy

Its because its an online comparison thats not in stock. So its what they sell them if they have them. They don't have any online so no valid posted item.

Used Cex before its valid.

Yes but that does not cover the whole country, for people who may be interested in that item who do not have a store near them, so not valid on that one sorry.

"Favouritism?"

Admin team can't spell that word they would ban there mothers.

Cex is retailer though, ebay isn't and prices arn't manipulated by retail prices. Cex's change and are guranteed by each store and priced throughout each store. I have compared Cex before, I can't see why you wouldn't be allowed as Cex are a retailer even if second hand, whats the difference from second from Game or Cex, none.

Maybe the mods looked upon it as thread spoiling as your link was to a second hand item ......

so because i writ a few comments it was deleted? as i posted in the thread i was interested in offering the £7 that was allready offered but saw no point due to someone else allready offering that and for the £1 difference id rather get a 6month warenty.

Your comments broke the rules, they were deleted. That is how the for sale forum works.

Please read the rules I quoted above - I believe it was the link that is the reason your comments were deleted. You cannot link to CEX as a price comparison in the for sale forum - the items were not available online, as the rules say.

If you are interested in the item, it's okay to use it as a comparison.

For example, if a member was selling a 2nd hand "thingy" for £20, and I wanted to buy it, it would be okay to say "CEX have it for £18, here's a link... would you do it for £17"?

You can't simply say "CEX have it for £18"

Apparently not mate see what i highlighted in red, as the way you said to do it i posted in a similar way posting the link and the fact it was cheaper, the only thing i didnt do was offer £7 as it was allready offered and i didnt see any point of offering it also as the first offer would have been accepted

Can we not ban all people that post WHY WAS MY POST DELETED ?.

lol...i want a chatpad but someone offered my highest maximum offer so i didnt offer it, but i posted the link to show where it was available cheaper than wht was the asking price for it in that thread as they had declined the original offer of £7 and also a offer of £9 i believe.

therefore any more offers that would have been made would have been more than what people could have purchased it from CEX hence why i posted the link.

maybe a good idea to know what sites can be used for comparisons in the fs board then, or is it just retailers offering brand new items?

Yes I agree.

As everything that isn't sealed on here is 'second hand' so why can't you compare it with another 'second hand' item really not clear.

People sell as much garbage as Cex do and vise versa.

Theres sellers on here who are renowed for 'mint' second hand items but there feedback reflects this.

i always thought you could only link to retailers dealing in new items, which does seem pretty daft

Well I have linked Cex before when approaching, why would I pay someone xx amount when I can pay a retailer for the same second hand item for potentially less. Swings and roundabouts.
