Of cheapskate buyers

My online sales policy specifies (very clearly in all my ads) prices are not negotiable. That’s because I already sell below current market price - which I carefully check before pricing each item, and keep monitoring in order to . Despite that some literally cheapskates still try to negotiate or bypass the terms to get a discount.

The last of these people is a guy who contacted me about a laptop on sale for about $775 (keep the price in mind as it’s pretty relevant); after I refused his ridiculously low - to the point of being almost insulting - first offer he came back claiming he accepted my price….but after we set up the delivery meeting that it came out he only had $740 at his disposal, and from the way he talked it was clear he believed I’d accept his price to avoid the “trouble” of canceling delivery and finding another buyer and thus was pretty surprised when I shut that down. When he told me (and I quote) «just trying to negotiate a bit, that’s how it works», I replied negotiations aren’t possibile as that’s how “fixed/*non* negotiable” price works….and yeah, as you probably guessed the guy didn’t like that and tried to argue until I reminded him the ad was crystal clear about it so it was all on him for not reading it. The cheapskate of course had no comeback for that, and bailed with some dumb excuse. LMAO

The guy is just the last in a string of m0ronic timewasting cheapskates who either don’t or (more likely and more common) pretend to not know what “non negotiable” means and attempt to barter…I told his story simply because he was the most outlandish.

Sorry for this rant, but I really had to share the story as those idi0ts totally deserve to have their embarassing BS aired to the world.
See you all next time; many cheers. XOXO

Of sales know-it-all “teachers”

For once this is not about a classical buyer, but rather about a buyer//fellow seller….who fancies himself better and the one who made the rules of the trade - when in reality he’s as unprofessional as it gets.

Short preface: once I sell an item, I usually wait until the buyer receives it and confirms everything’s in order before removing the ad; it’s the correct thing to do as professional sales don’t end with the shipping….there’s a “teeny-tiny” thing called after-sales service. But here’s the full story.
A few days ago I sold a laptop. Today a guy who had previously contacted me about it came back and asked me - rather rudely too - why the ad for the laptop was still up; when I told him exactly what I say above, he arrogantly claimed that I was «wrong. once you sell, you have to immediately remove the ad. shipping doesn’t matter.»….WTF!? When I tried to explain his statements were the actually wrong ones - as no serious and professional seller will wash his hand of i.e. a shipment getting lost, the content getting damaged or the buyer being unsatisfied…that’s what after-sales is - he (quite delusionally LMAO) claimed that his procedure was the standard because he had always sold using it; when I debunked that BS by explaining the above practice of after-sales to him again, he dismissed me…and vanished….yeah, very serious and professional. u_u And so deeply delusional amateur. ROFL The guy might have been selling for a while, but he sure as heck wasn’t a good seller - quite the contrary, he was the epitome of unprofessional and amateurish and I bet everything that, given his sh*tty attitude, none of his client was satisfied let alone happy with him.

Sorry for the rant, but this guy was so delusional I had to share the story - hoping I never meet anyone else like him.
See you all on next entry; many cheers. XOXO
