Thread: B&S NEVER EVER meet up at buyers place

    Default B&S NEVER EVER meet up at buyers place

    I usually insist that buyer come to my place to view. Today I decided to be "nice" and drove to the buyer's place since it is close by.

    Moral of the story it, it does not pay to be nice...

    Common sense, if buyers did not make the effort to meet up, usually not sincere. Will try to bargain here and there. Nitpick, etc...

    During my first purchase of a $60 lens, I went to woodland to meet up someone. He is driving while I need to take the transport. So, it's better to be a bad person and request the buyer to come to you always.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Depends right ...

    I don't drive and will always appreciate if the buyers take e effort to drop by my place to deal and vice versa I do the same for them sometimes too.

    So far I haven't had a buyer who dropped me even if I had went over their places Those who dropped me had the conscience to at least SMS first to negate the deal.

    Guess u just had a bad experience. Let it go ,
    Blacklist the person from your 'deal with list' and move on.

    I will appreciate if I'm buying and the seller takes the effort to come over

    i always make the buyers come to my location.

    unless you know the buyer, there's no need to make the effort.

    Depend on luck.... there's S.O. Seller, and there's S.O. buyer...

    I can also be sincere, but the goods not up to my expectation... so how?

    Too many scenario... and B&S is like this one la.. just relax...

    I took an MRT, then a bus and after that walked to a buyer's home.

    She made it worth my while because she looked like this:

    Yes. Because of your mature ageless beauty.

    I usually drive to the buyer/seller's place or somewhere convenient for them.

    From my experience 60% of the buyer/seller are really nice and 40% are really inconsiderate. Don't let the inconsiderate people change us from being nice people.

    I recently had the fortune of meeting a seller who drove to meet me at my block, and later to pass me other outstanding items at my convenience. Truly a pleasure to have met such a nice guy.

    The guailan buyer seems to be an anomaly but I guess it comes with the territory. Best is to pre-qualify the buyer/seller so that both parties do not waste each other's time.

    Better luck in the future TS =)
