Honestly, if I were in the market, I would offer you about 55% of what you are asking.  Maxfield has a Hollywood crowd that doesn't have a care in the world about prices.  Atelier offers an experience, and it's a regular retailer.  You are... some random dude on the internet.  I would only buy from you if I wanted to get a deal.  There is no motivation to buy from you otherwise.  

 

Plus, you advertise the item as OBO, which indicates that you are willing to haggle.  In this day and age when 20% coupons are ho hum, why would you espect a best offer of only something like 5 or 10% of your asking?

OBO != lowball offer.

I even stated in the post reasonable offer. if you think offering people 55% value of their asking price is ok then thats bad manners on your part.

If there was a way to auto decline believe me i would.

The more interesting and thread-relevant point is does this mean CCP footwear now fits true to size rather than big?

A friend of mine just received a pair of tornados that fit true (CCP size = UK size)

Maybe it's just me, and I come from a culture of bargaininng, but I don't find 55% to be particularly insulting.  I probably wouldn't take it unless I just really needed the cash and fast, but I'd see it as starting point for bargaining, and offer 20% off, and probably settle on 25-30% off the asking.  

 

An auto decline is also fine.  It's like "Okay, that was too low even as a starting point, try again."

Nothing wrong with bargaining in my culture either but 50% as a starting point is insulting.

Part of buying from a retailer is the after service as well. CCP has been known to break - if I buy from Lift, Rick Owens, other stores with good customer service, they take care of that for me, no matter when I purchased the item. Not so for Internet dude #22

You are right. But i have been able to sell items and get close to retail for them when they are new. Anyways my price is my price and i'll see what happens. i was more annoyed at the low ball. Its rare that i get a WTF type offer.

Get used to these insulting lowball offers on grailed and ebay. And as psydle said, even if you get a decent offer, that person most likely won't complete the transaction.

Of course it also depends on the condition of the item. If it is new, unused, and there are no defects just like sinned's item, then 55% offer gets a fuck off, stay away, I'm blocking you from my auctions/listings... well at least that's what's in my mind. I usually just ignore them or politely respond "no, thanks." smile.gif ... then block them.

Reminds of a new unused item I listed for auction. The winning bid was low but it is what it is. But the winning bidder asks for an additional 10% off. When I said no, he didn't pay. Fucker...

Lol. If that is true, give them away, or bargain price them. I know that I have and do, and that a lot of the casual CM sellers do the same.

I think everyone is thinking of pn/p pricing, but they are sold out And everywhere else the price is a bit har and everywhere else the price is a bit hother, closer to what I'm asking for .

Why don't you give away your house to people in need? Isn't that the same logic
