Why do people ask “is it still for sale?” but then never respond when you say “yes, it’s still for sale.” And when some do respond, they offer $10 for $100 item even though $100 is a good price for said item. If I am willing to sell it for $10 why bother listing it for $100? And of course the “PS can you deliver from New Glasgow to Antigonish for free?” If you want free shipping go to Amazon.
If you’re going to low-ball someone make the offer in your first email don't bother asking if it’s still for sale just make the offer, don't ask to have it delivered unless you are willing to pay for that service. And FFS don't hide behind a spoofed email that Kijiji uses and ask for someone's home address. Yep I am selling a XYX but here is my home address to someone you have a near impossible chance of tracking after it’s been stolen.
I have gotten some good deals online because I always leave my name and phone number for the seller, If I am busy I usually leave a time frame for a call back. IF I make an low offer I do it in person CASH in hand that shows I am serious. I never ask for a person’s home address unless I ready to go. And when I set a time to see a item I show up at that set time. —No It’s Not For Sale To You
