Snipe bids don't work as intended on Y!JP. The auction end time is automatically incremented by 5 minutes (IIRC) if a bid is made very close to the auction end.

How do people end up liking that system? Always been curious how it compares to the ebay experience.

latest updates to sipang's sales threads are amazing.

 

(on a related note: everyone go buy things from sipang's sales threads.)

Yahoo! Japan in general or the auto-increment? The auto-increment is actually an option, not enabled by default, so some auctions can be sniped. I think most people who remember turn it on, though.

In general, Yahoo! Japan is a piece of trash, with a terrible interface from late 90s, absolutely zero protection for the buyer and seller, and they're JUST beta testing a system for standardizing communication regarding address and payment info. Most Japanese web apps are terrible, designed around pointless "cultural" guidelines (Mixi's lack of real names, Yahoo! Japan's free-form communication) that detract from usability and poor user interface.. see Y!JP vs eBay, Rakuten vs Amazon, Mixi vs Facebook, Google Maps vs. all the terrible domestic map apps. Sorry for the derail, just angry at having to use Y!JP to sell things. eBay and PayPal is so easy to use

Basically, I want to win an auction and pay by clicking buttons, not writing a self-introduction, haggling over shipping, and figuring out which bank transfer will have the cheapest fees

Agreed, Y!JP and Rakuten seem to be stuck in a timewarp, particularly if you're used to using eBay, Amazon and PayPal.

Would anyone here pay US$295 for this grey sweatshirt that's made in China? Seems like a joke.

 

post #101605 of 109053
That's just silly. You can buy a Merz b Schwanen sweatshirt that's made in Germany on traditional circular knitting machines using three different threads of grey - for $135 shipped.
post #101606 of 109053
While $295 May be excessive, aren't we past all this anti-China manufacturing bullshit?

I wouldn't pay $295 cos it's a simple cotton sweatshirt. And it's Todd Snyder so it will go to at least 50% off at the end of the season probably in a full size run. The fact that it's made in China probably means it's better made than most made in USA shit anyway.

When discussing pricing and therefore cost of an item, whether it is made in a low cost country or not is absolutely relevant. I feel that I'm stating the obvious here, but maybe not?

What makes you think that was a comment on the quality of the item rather than the relative cost?
post #101609 of 109053
I wasn't replying to you, the OP's post made it sound like the fact it was made in China was the absurd part about the cost. If I'm wrong then my bad. But the fact the country of manufacturer was mentioned made it sound like that was the issue, like if it was made in the US the price would be justified (and like you said, it would be to extent since the cost of production would be higher) even though it's a basic ass heathered cotton crew neck. Made in the USA it would still be an easy pass.

Like you said, there's a lot of better, more interesting sweaters at much better price points made in many different places.

I can't believe Jet was the man who started it all.

 

No othe rsingle man has had such an influence on modern Alden culture.
