It would be great if they could punish the flake or no show, but the lowball offer issue, I don't agree with. If it's a new post, and more than I want to pay, I don't make an offer. I look for stuff that I want, that's been sitting on the site for a long time. I then usually make an insulting offer, sometimes they say yes, but at least we can negotiate from that point. If people offer me me an amount that's too low, I just say no. If they persist without an increase, I just ignore them. I like the ability to haggle, my father was a haggling master. I buy low and sell high on here, all the time. Just bought a bed last Wed for 40 and it just went out the door for 100. Low balling is an art, as long as you're not a jerk about it.
I been dealing with a lot of those lately, no show or make an offer or agreed to an offer and stop messaging right afterwards. What the heck is the point, I just don't get it, do people get a kick just to waste others time? Also the rating system is a absolute joke.
Been at this long time, People who don’t show up and don’t have the decency to even take one minute to say pass or unavailable should be giving a warning if it happens again they should be kicked off the site.
When they gave me a lowball offer over and over I get very upset and go to the items they are selling and offer them a low price just so they know how it feels I think it is a great idea you should all try it they start to understand
Totally agree these people are so inconsiderate and rude they definitely need off this site you guys really need to get together and figure out a way to punish these people posting a bad review by you guys would be commendable
I do the same thing. I have the main cross streets in the post and don't give the address untill they are ready to come over. I still get no-shows though and they get blocked right away, so they can do it to me just once.
If you don't set the price on your items as firm, expect the potential buyer to ask "what's the lowest you can go?" That's ok. When I set certain products as "Firm on Price" and clearly note it in the description, it's very rude to ask "what's the lowest you can go?" When they ask that, I tell them to read the description. I mostly sell sneakers (used and new) and sportswear. It doesn't matter what you sell. Firm on price means firm on price and if they can't understand or respect it, then I will block them, period.
