Damn new page! Better quote it as I'm lazy and I'm not going back a whole page.|
I've tried re-reading it a few times and still don't understand what he's on except "The economy is bad so give me your item WAY below that price", which is true I suppose but no reason for you to drop your price considering you're already the cheaper option.
If anyone comes across someone using the eBay ID "nigew1", I'd suggest keeping clear of him, he seems a tad confused about things...
A few weeks ago I won a big network server in a competition, unfortunately it's barebones and I'd need to spend about £400 buying hard-drives to make it usable; it's about £650 new, so I put it on eBay as a BIN for £600 for 30 days. On Sunday, he sent me this message:
nigew1: Would you accept an offer of £500 for your NAS?
Considering I offered delivery at £27, that's still £13 more, which doesn't really make much sense.
Me: Hi, sorry to say, not looking for offers on this at the moment.
nigew1: I only asked because I found I could get one delivered new at £640...
Me: Hi, not quite seeing the logic: you want to offer me £100 less because you can pay more for it somewhere else? Whilst I'm not a business, the item is new and still in its box; the only thing I have done is lift the lid to make sure there is something in there, I have not touched the contents at all.
Can anyone else understand quite what his point is here? He seems a little confused, thinking that I have to be in a rush to sell it, because..... well, who said it has to make sense, eh?
nigew1: That is the point, your not in business and a not sold much in the last 12 months. its about trust, feedback, and the market, and lets face it, not much is selling at the moment, hence the offer. I appreciate that it is new and you have good feedback. We are all in the sh1t together with not much business happening. I've got 4 servers to offload!
If you want to hold out its your shout. I have other options like the new synology DS412+ at £400 (reduced from £529)...
Congrats on winning the competition YenRug, hopefully someone will understand that £600 < £640 and take it off your hands
