    Default eBay Should Have A Membership IQ Test

    How come everytime I put something up, some fucking moron (or morons) always send a question that the answer is clearly written in the discription.
    Im a busy guy. Dealing with fucktards is not in my itinerary.
    Thanks for letting me share.

    Ron, I feel your pain. I sell a LOT of my kids clothes (around $2000 a year) on Ebay (Lilly Pulitzer dresses and other expensive stuff I think is still in excellent condition.)

    No matter how detailed I get with condition, measurements, color ect... I get 5-10 questions that I have clearly stated the answer to in my description. Depending on exactly how stupid the question is and how generous I am feeling, I rarely answer them... drives me wacko! It a freaking dress people... look at the picture, Errr

    It appears we need an IQ test for VHLinks membership as well.

    Ron, I have a question about this post. Why don't you answer the person's inquiry? Is it because you're too busy?

    Personally I don't have any problem answering questions.... I encourage it. As a seller, you're more likely to sell something (and at a higher price) if people get all their questions answered... even if I have listed the answer in the listing.

    The thing I don't get about eBay is actually from some of the sellers; and that's almost a total refusal to ship internationally. In my experience, I've have a lot more success shipping internationally (in terms of higher sale prices) because I may be the only person selling a particular item that's willing to ship internationally. It's really not that hard to figure up shipping costs and tell the buyer you'll ship it if they pay for it. Plus, with the weak dollar compared to other countries, people in Europe for example can afford to pay more (and are willing to do so).

    Yet nicholas, if you received several e-mails per day asking you if your name started with an "n" throughout the day (as you are attempting to go on about your life conducting other business, be it on the web or not), are you honestly telling me that this un-needed and therefore unnecessary distraction let alone hindrance, is simply fine and dandy as an intrusion upon your life?

    If so, you must work as a telemarketer for a living. And as such, therefore deserve as much scorn as possible to be reaped upon a human being.

    I think I have enough time to answer several emails. If people don't have that kind of time, they might want to free up their schedules a little bit Furthermore, if I viewed answering questions about a particular item on eBay as a "hindurance" or an an "intrusion" on my life, I wouldn't list anything on there at all. I mean if you think about it, you gotta box the item up, mail the damn thing, leave feedback... jeezus, when is it gonna end?!?!?!!? :0

    But nick, ya gotta understand. I DONT have that kinda time. Most of the dinks that ask the already answered are goofs that dont have the funds anyway. They are the ones that bid 2 bucks just to see their name on the screen. the ones that have NOTHING better to do than to sit in front of their computer and disrupt others that have alot to do.
    It just gets to be overwelming.

    Hey, if you don't like it....quit.


    I sell equipment that we stock. Now that my industry is a 'sellers market,' having it on the shelf is a commodity in itself. But it doesn't stop me having to deal with the same type of shit:

    Me: Yes we have it. Its $1500.00

    Customer: Well, WidgetCorp. priced it to me for $1200.00

    Me: Well, buy it from them.

    Customer: They can't deliver it for 3 months, and I need it now.

    Me: Is 2 months and 25 days not worth $300.00 to you?

    Customer: But you don't understand.

    Me: No, I understand fully. You are the one who seems to have the problem understanding.



    I've been doing this for 20 years. Never changes. But I got used to it.

    I understand that... I had some guy write and ask me if I shipped internationally AND if I'd use USPS Priority... also if I spoke Spanish. Now, my listing was listed as shipping "worldwide", and the only option listed was USPS Priority (I'm not sure if there is anyway to make that more clear). Unfortunately, I didn't mention that I don't speak Spanish. I suppose that's something I'm supposed to mention in the item description for a Wah pedal? haha
