    I'm regularly amazed by the number of people who don't seem to understand that items depreciate.

    For example, when someone is trying to sell a used item like a pram for $350, when RRP was $500. So basically, they got to use the lovely new item foe a net cost of $150, and they think it's reasonable to expect that someone else will want to incur a net cost of $350 to use the item when it's already a bit scratched/stained/wobbly.

    If it's not lovely, sparkling and basically just out of the box, I'm not going to look unless it's less than 50% of RRP!

    Yep see my post re a second hand thermomix. I also have a friend who sells "sets" of kids clothes (3-5 pieces of clothing) for $20. She asked around to see if any of us wanted to buy them. No thanks! I can go to a second hand store and get the equivalent for $10 or less or buy new for $30. What the...

    I took myself off the local bss pages because I got sick of the amounts of crap on them.

    There seems to be this attitude lately with all these sell pages/gumtree that people can turn a quick buck selling literally anything not nailed down, while trying to rip off the buyer at the same time.

    When I sell stuff on bss (which is very raely) I always sell at a low price, or free. And I always get asked if I will go any lower in price. I also get asked if I will deliver (often to the next big town too which is 50km away!) Someone asked me to deliver something I was giving away for free once.

    I know someone who sits at home and takes the welfare but tries to make a full time profit off her local bss page. it's like people think buyers are stupid and are going to part with almost retail prices for used junk.

    this same person I know was trying to sell two used stratco beach chairs for MORE than retail price brand new!? someone called them on it and posted a link to the stratco website and said something like stop trying to rip people off. the entire post was deleted shortly after 😂😂

    Yep. I once sold a smart trike brand new in box, never opened, for less then half the $rrp and she still wanted me to go lower on the price and deliver. She started the haggling at 5.30am! Some of these people are nuts!!

    We once had a bit of a Sh!tfight on our page over a book. Someone posted it for sale, someone said um, I lent that to you 6 months ago, no you didn't, yes I did. Over a $10 book! If I was the buyer, I'd have apologised and handed it over! Not tried to argue the point.
