Default wow....pointless negotiating

I dont understand some people on here....I list a card for sale for just $.25 and ask for $2 for shipping. The guy asks me if its a certain type of card and says he will take it if it is.....I then tell him yes and give him my paypal....he then tries to haggle me OVER 25 CENTS to let him give me $2 instead of $2.25........REALLY? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME OVER 25 CENTS!!....I mean I know im not making a profit by any means in this hobby, but i cant just take hits with shipping because I just cant afford to do that for everyone who wants their players cards regardless of how cheap I list them. I am trying to recoup losses from busting wax just like everyone else on here.

That's like when we had an estate sale for my grandmother who passed..we had a leather purse with the $50 original price tag still on it, selling for $5. The flipinio people tried to haggle me down to 4.50?!? I was like, $5 or get out of here.

this is almost as bad as that kid who claimed he was purposly bid up by the forum community because he had to pay $2.25 for a pink bordered parallel of Pierre Thomas who he "super collects" He fussed and made a farewell thread to top it off!

Actually, I sent both cards. I've been scammed so much on this site, it's ridiculous. But anyways, do you collect anything of Penny Hardaway? I think I have some base cards of his that I can send your way if you want them.

I don't understand why people watch baseball; the sport is such a waste of time.


Point of the above statment:
We are all different and all have different likes and motivations. If I saw a quarter on the ground I would pick it up. If I have a coupon for a quarter off I use it. I'm all for saving when I can.

Maybe the time was worth it for that person. You felt that your time to create this thread was worth it, so why couldn't another value something different? You may think he could have earned a quarter or more had he used that time differently. That is true. But you and I could also have done the same instead of typing here.

I'm not attacking you. I'm simply stating that we all value things differently. I promise you that a $10 bill means more to me than it does Michael Dell.

I understand the value of money, I value $10 just like you do....but to haggle over 25 cents after just telling me that you would take it at the price I had posted is just nonsense. Pay what you agreed to pay, dont try to haggle over 25 cents after, its just annoying to me.

This begs the question, would you have sent the 25-cent card in a bubble or PWE?

If I were to give you a penny for your thoughts....could I get two of your thoughts? Or would you be able to give me change back?

If they deal was agreed on for the $0.25 pending confirmation of the type of card then that should have been it. Unfortunately, that's the nature of the hobby. You're mainly dealing with cheap or greedy people. It's ok though, I'll send you $0.25 so you can buy a gum ball

I have to ask, why bother with a .25 card any way ?

It's not worth the effort.
I used to sell 1.00 cards but only in bulk. My time is worth more to me than the time it takes to ship a .25 unless it is a friend and that falls back to .25 card in a PWE for free.

To the op I agree it is annoying but if they wanted to pay 2 bucks make them agree to take it PWE.

Copesky I know we aren't even going to go there and call me a scammer.....I never got both cards and honestly you did nothing to ever try and make anything right. I have you on ignore but I can read quotes. If you want me to quit haunting you then quit lying about the situation. You yourself said you didn't ship out someone else did it for you, ever think that my other card went out with someone else's? I hate to say it but my feedback here is stellar and quite frankly it is very well earned. And definitely not going to even come close to screwing that up over a Mike Minor auto. Carry on sir.

I hate when people think their card is more superior to other peoples cards. I tried to buy a card on ebay today. Guy had it buy it now or best offer at $229.99. Last 2 cards sold were $133.50 and $100.00. I made a initial offer of $140.00 and was declined. Offer over the going price. He countered for $205. I offered $180 and he declined again. $46.50 over the last sell and was denied again. Needless to say I blocked the guy. Some people are just insane.

It's his card. Not sure why your blocking him. Personally some stuff that I believe will rise I refuse to sell at Ebay. If people don't wanna pay my price then i'll keep it.

THIS ^^^^ when you sell cheap items you tend to attract cheap people.

I do understand your point though Slugger. That .25 was a deal breaker for him LOL Not saying I myself would even waste the time making this thread, but I understand. So many cheapazz brokediks in this hobby it's laughable.
