LOL can't edit the title. I'm sure you know I meant "*******s"

Selling chrome side covers for $50 per side?

The luggage racks going for $250 I can understand - it's market price - but the $50 BIN individual side covers is just low.

I don't like all the buy it now pricing lately instead of bidding ,usually from some salvage place,that is going to get their asking price from some body with money,buy it now or make an offer isn't as bad,but you kinda have to put some of the blame ebay for all the fees they put on sellers these days,i also don't like a set shipping price that is way more than it costs to ship something,that to me is making money two ways and hiding part of the profit.

It's hard to give out a good deal on ebay. Unless you have a store there and you're selling constantly, the ebay fees are too much and you'll just end up taking a loss. And the ones that have stores there don't care and will give you a high price anyway.

I believe if you have an Ebay store you just pay a flat fee per month for it. Then all 'buy it now" listings are free for you to list while all auctions you list actually cost a bit to post.

Ebay is great and it saves me a lot of money. If you don't like it, don't use it. How hard is that?

They only sell for what people will pay. You can't blame Ebay for a $250 rack. If nobody bids, it doesn't sell. If you have one to sell, you want the full value, right?

If nobody bought them for $250, then chances are, the sellers would re-list them for less money until they sold.

If a person doesn't want to pay that much, they are free to make one, themselves. I was torn between buying one, and making a homemade model... but decided that $200 was better than spending a couple of full days, plus materials, making an ugly one. lol

And no, if/when I'm done with it, I'm not selling it for $50! :)

I have been burned too many times on Ebay. I know it's now ebay's fault but it seems there are more dishonest people are there now. It used to be a good place to shop, but I guess everything changes over time.

No, you just need to look at the seller's reputation before you bid and follow the purchase instructions..... But I think it's great that people don't like Ebay, it reduces demand and lowers prices!

If you deal with CL make sure you meet in a public area during the day.

Craigslist Killing Suspects in Adult Court to Face Formal Charges Friday
That's why when I sell an item they either meet me at the fire department or across the street in an open are across the street from the police department. The last time I did that the person actually has a felony warrant for their arrest. I found it quite funny.

Buy yeah with craigslist unless you know the person MEET DURING THE DAY LIGHT AND IN AN OPEN LOCATION where people can see you and the other person in-case something happens.

Just bought an old 98 Yamaha XL760 off Craigslist from a US Marshall. Had no idea he was going to be a US Marshall. Everything went really smooth. He was a great guy and I think I got a great deal. Had cash in my pocket and with all the stories I've heard about set ups on craigslist I had my XD 9 subcompact with me. As soon as I pulled up to the neighborhood I realized everything was fine but I didn't know the area so I carried anyway.

I love ebay and feel like I get good deals whenever I do buy on there. But I will only buy from seller's that have very good feedback and have sold more then 500 items.
