| p.1 #19 · Adorama on EBAY Canon 5D III SHIPPING? |
Can you please clear the air on how this ebay thing works when you guys sell a camera on ebay for $700+ below retail / what is on your site?
here are some of the claims:
-canon has an over abundance of the particular model due to lagging sales and let's certain verndor's blow thru inventory thru these deals
-the merchant has a ton of overstock and needs to dump them at X price below retail just to get ride of excess inventory (i doubt this is true since apparently some of the cameras aren't even in stock).
-ebay contracts a special price with the merchant and ebay eats the difference in the cost. in effect, this type of deal makes ebay look like the go to place for hot deals on a current hot item.
-something else? please please explain. please let us know so all of the armchair market analysts can go back to their day jobs.
Thanks and sincerely,
