    Can always arrange to meet at the central area if both buyer and seller is willing to ?

    If the difference is only a few bucks, the transport fee will offset the savings. So why spend the time?

    if the other party is a bit unwillign to travel...then if u really wanto but it /sell it very badly..then just go the xtra mile lor =)

    [whats more by travellign a bit more, u can get to go sightseeing in our dear singapura. thats what i realised when i was in NS brigade and we had to send <area IC> envelops to all the NSmen. yah it gets tiring and sweaty but really its a chance to see places u never see b4 in sgland. come to think of it..even though sg land is kinda small, have u ever actually seen every part of your fatherland? ;-) ]

    well, if its slightly cheaper only, that i suggest going to the retail shops or trading with other people. i mean, the transport free meh? hahaz...and also, i always believe tech stuff (especially cams) should NOT be bought as 2nd hand lar. there are however exceptional cases lor. like the condition is mint and things like that.

    i think i'm contradicting myself.....

    But the issue is the same: a transaction where the other party refuses to travel.

    Most of my transactions were actually done in Peninsula. Most photogs hang around that area now and then, so there seems to be less 'resistance' to meet there as a compromise.

    i've travelled across the island for transactions before, but only as the buyer; usually the buyer is more 'desperate' for the item than the seller is for the money. i would say that if the price is good and the item is hard to come by, the buyer should move - most of the time.

    if the price is really a steal, then i'll personally travel down to wherever MRT he wants (anyway SG is so small).

    but if the price is average, comparable to what others are selling, i'll rather get from others OR ask him to meet me somewhere to my convenience.

    i'll always take the product + price + "desperate-ness" into consideration before i want to close a deal with the buyer.
