    Just to look at it from another angle, maybe the seller is really struggling. Those prams are not cheap new, perhaps they were just really hoping for more than that? I agree though, there was no need to take that out on you at all. But I wouldn't bother replying, it's not worth it.

    I'm the odd one out I don't actually think there is much wrong with her response. I sold a pram on eBay and the amount of offers I received offering ridiculous amounts was laughable. I did actually LOL at some of them.

    I understand that you meant no harm or disrespect when you made your offer but from a sellers perspective she didn't interpret it that way.

    Is this childish of me?

    id send that..... I agree with you.... When I sell on eBay I start at my absolute minimum what I'd take..... They should have started higher..... Not ure fault no one bidded... I also wouldn't be buying it from them either.

    I'd actually probably say "my apologies, I didn't mean to upset you, all the best". No harm in spreading a bit of peace.

    I would reply with what you have written. How rude of them! Most people do try and negotiate anyways.

    Wow, so rude! I would probably think a hundred awesome ways to respond...but never follow through! Not worth the bad karma

    I think if she wasn't happy to sell her pram for $19 or whatever then don't have that as the starting price. Simple. Obviously the seller had a price in mind that she wanted.

    I would have replied with something like Ok, you've twisted my arm. $25. Cash!

    Op I think your response is fair enough. The seller was very rude! As per pp, people should not list at a price lower than what they are prepared to accept.
