I understand I only make X on ebay and if that is my mark, dealing with forum members is better than some random person out of millions of ebay members, is more preferable. Incentive to buy is where I go with my pricing :)I am forgetful,remind me If I have forgotten to leave feedback please ;). I NEVER send Gift...why rip off paypal when you use them so much ?

You have very low feedback. Most won't start to deal with you until you hit the magic number 20. You also have a negative which with less than 10 feedback is worse than 10 Red Lights.
If you say your troubles were straightened out, then the site should be willing to take out your negative should your trading partner agree.
Negative feedbacks on this site are worse than Plague.

I actually told a moderator about my negative and he said he couldn't find it lol. So I don't what the deal with that is. Doesn't transferred feedback mean anything here? I mean why bother having it if it doesn't pull any weight?

In the case of a $40.00-$60.00 ebay value I'd probably put it in at $50.00. Now 75% would be $37.50 but since I'd be saving ebay fees I might not consider a $35.00 offer insulting but certainly anything less than that would be.Steve Schindler
Collect what you want to collect. Collect players and cards that you like. Collect what you can afford. Collect for you, not to try to impress someone else. If you do this you will much more likely to enjoy the hobby and stay with it.

As I said, I believe someone is looking to both avoid the risk of a card selling low along with paying eBay fees. I would never contact a member about a card if they state that they do not sell below eBay prices. If I did I would be a fool.

I don't mind selling below ebay here because I save on fees, but a lot of members don't factor in shipping costs when they make offers. One guy asked whats $3 dollars less anyways for shipping its not much. Multiply that by 10 transactions that is $30 out of pocket for postage & shipping materials.

Just something to add to this thread is how some dealers at card shows expect to sell their cards when they price them more than 2x more than what they sell for on ebay. I mean I understand trying to make a quick buck, but where is the realism here? I live in Toronto which is almost 90% hockey collectors and that's not an exagerration. This means that anything that isn't hockey at the card shows is ridiculously over priced in the hope that the other sports fans that do frequent them want the card badly enough so they overpay for it ridiculously like I mentioned.
I see this all the time. As a collector and honest person, if I were to set up shop at a show, I would not try to make that huge a profit and most likely I would just sell my cards at a fair price. My question is why do these types of dealers even bother putting their cards for sale, when deep down inside they know they won't sell them and if they do isn't there any guilt knowing that they ripped someone off?
I saw a Brandon Belt Museum card. It was nice with a 4cl patch auto, but it was /270 and sells for maybe $20 and that's with the Giants in the world series. His asking price was FIFTY DOLLARS. I thought he said 15 at first and when he repeated again and said it had a 4 cl patch, I walked away. I was checking out his other cards a bit too and all of them were overpriced and the only stuff he sold were things from his common bin. Unreal.
