We’re all familiar with the concept of online shopping, but buying second-hand products from people is a whole other story. When buying from people online, there’s no fixed price, and there’s room for negotiation. If you’re looking to get a reasonable price for your second-hand goods, make sure you’re being reasonable, and most of all, polite to people. Even though we don’t know them and may never speak to them again, there’s no reason to be rude. When both sides are reasonable and polite, buying and selling stuff online can go pretty smoothly, and it’s a great way to reuse old products and help our environment. It’s a win-win situation and even our planet profits from it. On the other hand, there are some sketchy types online, and mostly, people who don’t really understand the art of negotiation. If you’ve ever placed an item online for sale, you probably chanced upon these people – who sometimes try to lower the price to nothing, or otherwise make odd suggestions. That’s what happened to those people, and they’ve decided to share their experiences with the world.
Some people don’t realize the value of what they’re looking for. If you’ve ever dealt with a low-baller before, you know exactly what we mean. They’re not just haggling, but they’re trying to rip you off and probably show off on social media about striking a good (for them) deal.
The thing is that the replier knows that the seller isn’t accepting nagotiations but tries to offer a lot less than what the phone’s worth. Not only that, but the longer the seller takes to respond, the lower the offer goes. Who could pass up on a deal like that?
