As a new seller, I realized that in general the items on this forum sell for a bit less than say eBay, esp. when most prices include shipping to at least conus. And I agree with Doc that selling can be a lot of hassle.
Don't want to make it too high sounding, but to me personally, there's something a little more to selling here than just profit margin:
- Overall, I think members are quite knowledgeable about the stuff, so you know you're dealing with similar minds which feels good
- like the interaction, much better than sitting there watching the dead eBay until the final 5 secs
- more in control...price etc., items often move faster which is important
Agree that this community has created a text book typical competitive market where the market regulates itself. So overcharging sellers will be forced to reduce or leave.
