    When I sell my stuff, its the same price to all. I'm not SMRT, no concession to students.

    P.S. That doesn't mean I don't trust students.

    But what about those "enterprising" students who will resell the stuff you sell them for a couple of hundreds more?

    Hmm...I think as a seller, of course I have to draw the lines. Im not sure about the others but for me, if Im selling to a sec sch/poly aged students who's keen in photography and I am looking to dispose of that item, I wouldnt mind selling it slightly cheaper. Note the word slightly of course depends on the item and the situation.

    That of course I cant control but if I want to sell something, and if that price is comfortable for me, I'll do it. Whether the person has the ability to re-sell that thing at a higher price is up to his discretion. The thing is, I want to sell off that thing. If I am comfortable with the price, its fine. That of course is my humble opinion.

    oooh that was a quick deal

    ok sexual innuendos aside, did she ask for a discount based on her status as a student? (and did she try to teh you?haha!)

    Just want to have a show of hands if people in here really trust students or children asking for lower prices. I'm not saying everybody's like that but there're chances
    Sooo.... what is the percentage of cheats and con-artists out there in Singapore that are adults? as opposed to students?

    how about those secondary sch/poly students who sell paper clips/paper stars for their beloved sunshine empire ?
    perhaps you can say is the adults that brainwashed them but in the end the action is still done by the students...

    Smile Re: Do you trust students?

    Once had a interested party for my camera & after much inquiries from him, he told me that he is a student. I agreed to lower the price then close to the day when we suppose to meet up, I accidentally broke my batt grip catch, so I offered to further lower my price but he has to send in CSC himself for the replacement. He 'disappeared' all of a sudden w/o telling me if he still wants it after telling me that he rather prefer me to get it replaced. What happened to 'student/s' nowadays? Dun even have the courtesy to inform if they are still interested anot.

    For those who has dealed with me knows that I had sold numerous things in good conditions. Next time if someone who tell me that he/she a student, I dun think I will be willing to lower. Prefer to sell to those non-nosense genuine buyers & not much question. I personally dun mind if the buyer come over & reject after seeing the item is not up to their expectations than to ask so many questions & the last one would be "Can u lower your price further?" <-- crap I will choose not to reply to these people.

    Of course I trust students. I trust all people the same way, until they show that they are not worthy of trust. When I sell my stuff, I will also be fair to everyone, regardless of whether they are the CEO of a corporation, students or NSFs. The only people I give special prices (at my loss) are friends and family.
