  1. Buy my s***! https://www.ebay.com/sch/jmoose29/m.html?item=174133970916&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  2. I am picking up what you are saying. It is ridiculous to lose a sale over $3 PP fee on a $100 jersey, in theory (or not pay the $3+ on a purchase to insure protection). But there are situations where I dont want to incur that expense, especially to give the buyer protection. As a buyer, there are times I would incur the expense for the protection, but if I "trust" the seller (and I know each sale is a different transaction), I would rather save the $3+ than have buyer protection (which is essentially insurance).
  3. Lmao the same thing has happened to me before. People need to think before they say things in a negotiation. When buyers start to justify things, I just get aggravated and lose interest in dealing with someone. "This sold for auction 2 years ago for $50 less." Ok, cool. Go in your time machine and buy it then. Like you guys have said, "just take $50 less than your 'best price" -- no, pay $50 more if you want. The other thing is when people drop big money on some things and then haggle on something small. Some guy was breaking my balls over $25 on a $325 gamer, but purchased a $2,000+ gamer the week before.
  4. I agree, but I guess the flip side is everyone has a max/min and some people are just stubborn. There were times I wouldnt take $10-15 off just because I knew someone (relatively sooner rather than later) would pay more. I also balked at jerseys because I had a max of $350, but the seller wouldn't go less than $375.
  5. Some buyers are looking to save as much as possible and some sellers want to save as much as possible -- you will be shocked how many times $5-10 makes a difference.
  6. That's also very true about the protection. I know there was a recent horror story on the GW FB group regarding a guy who tried to return something a month later and opened a PP claim. The one good thing with G&S is if you do provide a tracking and it shows delivered, the buyer cannot say they didnt receive the item, but I guess there are still other ways to scam.
  7. For sure 100%. I recently started using G&S because one of my friends was burned in a pro stock group. My new rule is unless I know the person from a forum or the seller is someone I have bought from before, I will not send F&F. People lose sight that jerseys are a hobby and nobody is forcing anyone to sell / buy. If a seller doesn't want to sell for less than $x, a buyer shouldn't be upset seller will not accept a reasonable offer of $y. Further, the buyer should not be upset that the $x price requires a certain payment method. It could be a cost of doing business for the seller, but since buyers want to spend as little as possible, giving the 2.9%+$0.30 discount is a nice option. If the buyer would rather spend more money for the protection, they should understand its the seller's right to establish the payment conditions. If the buyer does not like the seller's condition, don't buy or try to negotiate new terms. One of the places I eat at near work adds the credit card processing fee to the bill -- the deli made it clear that you can use cash to avoid the fee or incur the expense. It is my choice to (a) eat there and (b) use credit (or cash). The same is true for jerseys.
  8. That's ridiculous. I am assuming you would have accepted any payment, so long as the fees were added. It's not like you were saying "I will only sell if FF."
  9. Thank you for the reply. I'm probably going to end up doing it because Im a for patches. Also, on the subject of patches, I have a MIC Isles blank adidas (stripped GI). I dont know if I should go Barzal with a centennial NHL patch or Wang/Torrey patches. Barzal won the Calder with the NHL 100 patch, but how often can you go 3 patches? https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/mathew-barzal-of-the-new-york-islanders-and-phil-varone-of-news-photo/1129481092?adppopup=true
  10. Im toying with the idea of making a 1998 Skills Competition jersey. I think it is weird to have an authentic jersey + add the flag patch, but it is a cool rarity. What does everyone think? Example: https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/zigmund-palffy-of-the-new-york-islanders-in-action-during-news-photo/246558?adppopup=true
  11. Actively looking for: - Game used white Islanders waves (willing to cash or trade). - White Islanders waves in good condition sz 52+ and must be properly customized. Willing to listen to all players except for Palffy. Ideally would like: Berard, Fichaud, Chara, Linden -- in that order.
  12. "Jeremy is impossible to shop for. I don't know what a Reebok 7.0 glacier twill Canadian-made jersey is."

    I've been going to the "what's the most you'll pay" and usually I don't receive an answer back.

    eBay version 4.0

    Im sure I probably complained about this before, but has anyone else been getting messages from "buyers" on ebay asking "will you accept $x" instead of them making an offer using the "Best Offer" option? Obviously they are (a) lowballing and (b) window shopping, so they probably do not want to get "locked in" to an offer (if I were to accept). But I don't understand messaging a seller instead of just submitting an offer.
