    Thumbs down Make an offer

    These days:

    Sellers are asking for offers, but they don't tell how much they are willing to sell for.
    Buyers are asking for offers, but they don't tell how much they are willing to pay.


    Are these buyers/sellers expecting some buyer/seller to jump in and offer a silly price.

    In business negotiation, there is a saying that whoever offer first will lose half the battle already.

    Ah... but still i think the best negotiation always ends up in a win-win situation with no bad blood

    of course.... who wouldn't love to buy something at a ridiculously low price and to sell something at a ridiculously high price?

    but...

    ppl who ask for offers already know the market price of their items, so there is absolutely NO CHANCE to get a super good deal from them!

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    i've sold something here by first stating an RP...
    but there're seldom ppl who offer at above RP... so usually it's $50 off from RP deal.

    so I tried bidding for selling my friends stuff... but end up using a lot of time managing the bid...

    so i tried "no RP just send me ur offer"... then I get "$300 for your FM3A mint, thanks"...

    haha... real world, so get real.

    That only happens if both parties understand the art of negotiation. Sadly some ppl think as "I win u lose" or "I live u die" in their negotiation, a bit self-centred and may end up in sour & unhappy ending.
