    Listing Items for Sale Here and on Other Forums

    I recently saw an item listed for sale here and saw the same item listed, by the same seller, on another forum for significantly less.
    What is the policy?
    I was thinking of buying the item listed here until I saw the lower price on another forum. It pissed me off.
    Just seems wrong.

    Contact the seller and tell him/her what you think about his/her sale prices.

    This, he could tell you to get bent or he could see the error of his ways and offer it to you at a fair price - either way you'll have stood for your beleifs.

    You could also bring along a slapjack if he gets stubborn and insists on the higher price.

    Uh... ask the seller?

    I list prices differently depending on where I post it.

    I considered contacting the seller, but I just bought from someone else. Life is too short.

    I was thinking of buying the item listed here until I saw the lower price on another forum. It pissed me off.

    I just wanna clarify a couple things if I’m gonna give my opinion, and that’s all I’m gonna offer is an opinion, which is near worthless. Like less than a nickel. Actually like about 2 cents.
    As far as ‘policy’, it’s been well established that a seller here on this site can ask anything they want for an item, choose to sell or not to sell to anyone, even up to the point of the meet (should they not feel right about the person) and still remain in good standing with Bayou Shooter. No special rules or contracts or clauses here that supersede average everyday sale of an item to another party etiquette that I’m aware of when reading the Marketplace Rules. So, Judging from your post, looks like the seller is working within the rules here.

    You mentioned that you were thinking of buying the item. So you saw the item and saw the price and actually considered buying it. This speaks volumes. Even before the part, until you saw the lower price on another forum and got pissed off.
    That could happen with everything you ever purchase from anyone or any retailer on any given day.
    I could understand being let down if you purchased an item and then found it cheaper, but simply finding a difference in price wouldn’t piss me off. I reckon if I had comms with said seller and called him out about the difference in price and asked that he sell it to me for the other site price and He couldn’t give me an explanation like he may have intended to drop the price on both sites or simply made a mistake or he told me to kick rocks I might could work myself up to getting pissed off at that point.

    Did you ask about the difference in price?
    How much was the item and what was the price difference?
    I mean are we talking about a $25 difference on a $500 item or a couple bucks on a box of ammo?

    I’m truly only looking to clarify. Not trying to judge. But I will say that any rights or privileges a person expects as a buyer, should be respected with a seller. Just flip the script and try not to be pissed. I still think closing access to posting in for sale ads was the best option.
    And lastly, contacting the seller is probably key. I’m sure the seller of said item could quickly clarify the policy for you.
    Doesn’t play well with TROLLS...

    Hang on, I have a question,While digging out boxes of silver rounds I came across an old offshore porn collection.
    Like DVD's or what ever they are called, Is this something I could sale or trade on here? The porn-o stuff ?

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.
