Does not make sense. ONO stands for Or Nearest Offer. In this case it also says not negotiable. So....?

Oh...POA is price on application. For eg sports cars. Leather option, etc etc.... Their options usually mean a hell lot of money, not a typical few hundred or 1-2k type. :D

Ok....i guess Or Nearest Offer.

i used to think that the POA term implies, "no money to buy, dun bother to ask. buzz off" :)

i thought it denotes 'OR nearest offer'. i feel that this acroymn allows the seller discretion to decide on the finality of transacted price. thus, it is negotiable.

There was another one that I didn't understand: FPO until I found out it's free photography only. :bsmilie:

Hmmm... :think:



than we should requires people must use this term in the title for posting on free photograpy service in consumer corners.

eg. (FPO) Event photographers needed on 30-02-2006


So many of us will not bother to read that thread, than can spend more time in Kopitiam.:bsmilie:

Kinda flawed.

If he puts $3500, I bid $3600, but someone else bids $4000, following the o.n.o. rule, I shoud get the bid.. hehehe...
