When you see a bag you sold being RESOLD at a higher price by the buyer within a week? LOL
no...why would it
I think if you sold it - it's up to the buyer what they do with it... IMO...
Not at all! I would be happy my bag was sold at the first place since I know eBay is totally unpreditable.
Nope. I doesn't matter to me what someone does with their item after they pay me what I want for it.
nope doesn't bother me either
it annoys me. well it used to. now i price my stuff high. LOL.
then again i buy and resell so it really shouldn't.
the first thing i ever sold the person who bought it resold it for more USING MY PICS. omg i was pissed.
I know it shouldn't bother..I was just really surprised to see it back on eBay so fast! Probably bothers me more because I really was torn about selling it in the first place.
lately i've been listing stuff low in order to clear it out of my house. i did a big time clear out in dec too. i was so upset to see a ton of stuff sell for more from the people who bought it from me. esp because i had lost money on a bunch of it. but then i thought "ech, it's out of here. that's all i wanted" plus some money is better than none...
It wouldn't really bother me but it would probably make me think "why didn't i sell at that price to begin with?" ush:
It doesn't bother me as long as I got what I wanted/expected out of it. If I didn't get enough for it when I sold it, I try to learn from that mistake.
Separate but related note...I have been kinda amazed at people in the past who have emailed me (as a seller) and said, "I see you paid xxxx for this and now you are trying to sell it for xxx!" like it's some big AHA! amazing mystery that they have solved. I'm always polite in my responses, but at the same time I'm kind of like, "um, AND?". A lot of times my listing is better, and my pics are better, and I do a better job of describing the item and maybe my FB is even better than the original seller, so I don't see what the problem with me maximizing my profits. A thing is only worth what someone will pay for it at that moment and it's not like I somehow prevented "my" buyer from seeing it the first time it was listed (cheaper).
BTW Grace123, I am not saying your listing for whatever it was wasn't good! I'm just saying that I can often grab things relatively inexpensively on eBay because of listings that aren't 100% up to snuff. And often, I turn around and resell them for more.
I have gotten a purse before and when I got decided for whatever reason, size, exact condition etc that the purse wasn't for me. Rather than treat the seller like a dept store which we all complain about as sellers, then I resale it. We were telling another Ebayer that she should tell someone who bought a speedy from her to resale it rather than treat her like a dept store, so this instance really is no different. I bought a purse for my mother once who was determined terminal w/ cancer and I just did not feel in my heart there was any way I could keep the purse knowing it was meant for her. So, I sold it rather than burden that seller with what was my issue.
Same here. The only thing that would bother me is if I had a bag listed and had a bunch of watchers but it went for a low amount, then the person who won it would turn around and have a LOT of bids and sell it for a higher price.
Although I agree that a buyer can do whatever they want with it after it's theirs, it would bother me if they got a lot more for it. Or maybe I just would be a tad jealous
I am never irritated or bothered by this but it has taught me that I have a fatal tendency to underestimate the value of most of what I list on Ebay!
