Upload & Sell: On
Not. Participate in Forums besides the B&S here, have lots of impeccable feedback, and they
will beat a path to your door to buy your gear. Sure, there are lots of noobs/eBay xplants...
but the majority of the B&S community still makes it the best B&S around. Price realistically and
include shipping/ins/PP fees, and you'll attract more of the 'cream' than the bottom feeders to your
thread. I hardly ever get lowballed, and if I do...simply ignore them. Deal with established members.
I believe Will is correct 100% BUT I also believe the OP has a valid point.
Case in point one of the worse.....1 of many unfortunately
I started selling off some of my gear not used last year. My FS ads were replied to by 90% new people and by some real "whackos" who had 0,zilch,nada...participation in FM other than B&S ads and most, if not all, were buyers whos only reference was from Ebay, CL or some other venue.
I had 1 clown from Boston(just signed on to FM), because I wouldnot lowball my item to his liking, he commenced to trash the stated condition(refurbished by Canon) in the the ad! He even implied I was lying about the condition and classification of my gear!
I had the invoice for god's sake idiot!!!!
Then,in other ads, he would trash others selling gear because they would not respond to his obnoxious questions!
I wrote a PM to Fred and he removed the replies from the ad and the California buyer was 110% pleased!
Then when 1, of a few, "old timer" responded in defense of my ad and some replies to his tiraid, he trashed him because he was an Army veteran and he hated any Army people!
Fred removed his remarks also but the guy still is on B&S.
But it was his loss and his ignorance was obvious. 99% of the time when the response is "lowball" or comments detracting my item are sent, I ignore them.
My feedback for my eqpt sold on B&S speaks for itself and the winners in this are the one's that "read thruogh" the trashtalk and buy my eqpt!
Anthony also is correct about pricing to sell.
