is that an appropriate amount? it doesn't seem like a lot to most new yorkers given a drink at the bar can cost you $20, but if you are going there anyway and the item isn't too hard to find, you can package it up and walk a few blocks to find a post office (and god forbid, make a friend at the same time), it's really not a bad deal.
anyway, i'm a little disappointed how jaded some new yorkers can be sometimes (maybe i just haven't been burned enough growing up in honest communities). i'd like to think styleforum is an honest community with a population of 150,000.
either way, barring any emergencies, i plan to head to the RL sale on friday pm and venture over to isaora just because it's close by. anyone want a proxy, please let me know. i don't plan to make more than i earn per hour from the proxy, all i ask for is that you pass it on and help the next person.
Completely agree. He really came across like a douchebag. I've had people on SF proxy stuff for me for free (most were paid though), and I'd gladly help a few souls out if Toronto wasn't such a barren wasteland when it came to this kinda stuff.
But hey, fuck the guy who offered a 15% fee right.
i would completely agree its not worth the effort to go just for the sake of making $15 in frigid cold; i wouldn't do it myself. in that case he could have just said no and moved on. but broadcasting to the forum as if someone just ate his dog is not an adult move. not cool. just saying.
Proxying is a huge pain if someone isn't already going to make the trip for themselves as it not only means making time to go somewhere, trying earnestly to actually get the item requested and then there's shipping. Dealing with shipping along makes me pretty uninterested in selling anything including stuff I never wear... I don't think I'd proxy anything for anyone for less than $100 dollars if it meant going out of my way in any sort of way. The exception being for anyone that's proxied for me before then I'm definitely willing to reciprocate even if it means dealing with all the hassle I outlined.
I've always offered 5% or minimum 50-100 dollars at the bare minimum depending on what I'm after.
