Okay I gotta ask why “buyers” do this....

Level 1
I must get 10 “is this still available?” messages every day. Which is fine (even though I note on most listings that ‘if you see this it’s still available’. I make sure to mark something as closed ASAP after selling) BUT, almost none of them reply after I “normally within minute” reply that yes, it’s still available.

Is there something in it for someone to ask if it’s available then not reply? I bet that only 1 in 20 people that ask me “is it still available?” reply back after I say “yes”.

So why are they asking? It’s driving me nuts.

I don’t mind that most people who message are not going to be buyers. But why ask if it’s available only to not reply when someone says “yes” ??

If they dont reply back within an acceptable time period (within a couple of hours depending on the time of day), I usually move on. Is this still available? is a prerecorded answer that buyers can choose from when messaging you.
