    Default Your opinion.

    There are some people who will HUNT for cheap deals and then resell the item at a higher price a week or two later.

    Personally, I am fine with that.

    Would like to hear opinions?

    i guess it is perfectly fine...business after all. no one can force the buyer to buy anything against his will.

    No, problem at all. What the buyer does with the item after buying it is their business. If the seller agreed with the price, it was their own choice. It was not a gift.

    1. They have to fork out cash to buy the cheap item. i.e. need capital.

    2. They may be buying on a try-try-since-its-cheap mentality, instead of deliberately buying to sell.

    3. They take a risk if the item spoils in their care. Some items may not sell. i.e. Stuck.

    4. The original seller gets cash - something he wants/needs.

    5. Word gets around. You just need one dissatisfied seller/buyer to make a lot of noise, and its game over.

    6. There is a 'market rate' for most items, so you can't really make a living out of it. Maybe a once-in-a-while quick buck. If the profit is low, say $20-$50 region, i feel the risk not really worth it. Then again, for some, it is.

    7. If you DO make a living out of it, then your profile must be quite high. Income tax may come after you.

    Actually, i feel it might be a win-win-win situation for seller-middle-man-buyer, with the middle taking the most risk.

    once an item is sold, it belongs to the buyer and it is up to his sole discretion what to do with that item.

    Some ppl just hang out in CS trying to snatch cheap deals and act as resellers..

    Its obvious they don't have the passion for photography..

    If you don't like what they are doing, all you can do is don't sell them your stuff..
    They offer low prices anyway..

    There's 2nd hand seller everywhere. Cars, Handphone, CDs, Books, Baseball cards, PC parts, Camera.

    They are doing what 2nd hand shop are doing.

    Garang Guni, they are known as.

    Their price might be lower but they normally dun mind slight comestic defects.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    what i deem irritating would be those ppl who haggle like crazy over the price of ur item, saying stuff like it's used stuff, can get cheaper overseas, etc etc.

    then later you see them selling the same item at the price you originally posted.
