    Hi, Daniel, would you accept $65 shipped? I'm in Canada btw. I know my offer is way lower than what you ask for, but an offer is an offer and you can get some cash for your other purchase. Let me know, please. Thank you!

    Best Regards,

    <NAME>

    I love when they try to present some rational (in their minds) justification for their lowballing. I had one dude years ago tell me that "his friend" had the same thing and said it was worth $XX. Or I see it's not selling so I will offer you half of your asking price logic.

    honestly, i dont mind hagglers but this was outrageous.

    ive dropped them numerous times. the price is more than fair for unworn/un-hemmed brand new pants. they are lanvin and featured on the runway, if you cant afford it buy j crew *cue jetdawg


    it's funny, but at the same time the market is the market. why don't you guys sell on ebay instead?

    the market is the market, but it's ridiculous when you are selling an item for $600 and you get a PM saying &quot;hey, i'll take right now for $200. get at me with ur ppal!&quot;

    delete. The sense of entitlement on B&S is pretty funny at times.

    Speaking of, here is a PM exchange I had a few days ago (note, I did not personally forumban this person[​IMG]

    Me:
    Him:
    Me:
    Him:
    Me:
    Him:
    I then banned him. I mean, wtf? You actually knew the rule, and decided that you would change it to something more to your liking. And then you get pissed that I'm not sympathetic? Then you decide to insult me? Good luck selling your Yoox credit, asshole. Try Ebay. You can set the price however you want, but the final value fee is 9% these days.

    On a related note, the 5% pricedrop rule will not be in effect under the new system. Instead, there will be no bumps, period. Every thread will be for a single item, so it will be easy for buyers to search listings using tags and categories. There will be a bulk uploader for people who want to sell multiple items. You can temporarily buy into different user groups that will allow you to bump your threads at specific intervals, for the duration of your temporary membership. You can also buy things like bolded (or otherwise more visible) listings. We are also working on a featured items option, that will take the place of the pinned threads, but that is probably not going to be there at launch.

    Hopefully, this will get rid of inflated starting prices, and the market will be more "natural" as people decide make their listings based on a more market driven cost-benefit analysis.

    sounds great, i await these features. but aren't people right now making their listings based on a market driven cost-benefit analysis? right now i would say this is a dutch auction. nothing wrong with this, but i like the ideas you put out.

    That would completely ruin most sales threads given that people don't use the B&S like that at all. But okay, I'm sure you've thought this through. Sufu b&s ahoy.

    Yeah, i'm with AR_SIX on this- no bumps will suck hard. I like the sufu once a day bump rule, works well.
