Upload & Sell: Off
| p.1 #2 · If you are a potential buyer on the Buy/Sell forum... |
I've been on the opposite end of the spectrum, as the potential buyer who lost out, though I never expressed animosity toward the seller, nor did I fire out a retort. Still, it does sting, especially when you have every intention of buying the item. I did miss a lens on the B&S boards, but the seller followed-up with a private sale to me of a second lens (same model) in his possession. Worked out.
I agree, first come-first serve. Though, some buyers pull the trigger without asking questions, and others, like myself, want to confirm a few things first with the seller. Sometimes, we lose out. A week back, I missed out on a Buy It Now that I had asked the seller to activate for an eBay auction. By chance, another bidder was watching the auction, and within the two minutes that the seller took to create a Buy It Now and email me to tell me it was ready, the other bidder bought my goods. That one did piss me off a bit, haha.
But, then I found it cheaper on craigslist.
