The Culling of the Weak. Selling of a large lot of stuff

Honestly, It it almost completely untested. Things I picked up at yard sales and threw into storage, etc... I would assume all the cartridges work, controllers probably all work (if they don't they most likely would work after a cleaning) Just recently purchased a house and need to clean out a bunch of stuff before I move in.

Would be nice to know about the state of the nes and snes machines. If they half work even would be good to know as that will help to base my bid amount on.

I have no power supplys for any of the NES or SNES gear. They're troopers though, and should work fine with a good cleaning :)

 

 

Wish you would offered some of this lot up on the forum first. Probably would have gotten decent prices for piecing some of this stuff out.

I wanted to get it out of here in one large lot..

Why? I see you went from $50 shipping to over $120.

 

 

Yeah, I'd like to know the answer to this as well. Seems shifty. You got $310 from the first auction and $50 in shipping. What happened to the first auction and why has the shipping tripled?

 

I added a bunch of items to the auction while it was running, winning bidder didn't want to pay the extra shipping. If you read the auction listing, It says I will charge actual shipping and refund the buyer the difference. I purposely made the shipping calculator calcualte a higher shipping cost so there will be no aditional charges at the auction end, just a refund for the difference between the actual shipping charges and what is listed. There is no way to enter in more than one box into the shipping calculator, so this is how I've gone and done it.

That seems very questionable to me. There is nothing wrong with adding things to your lot, but if the shipping becomes higher than was stated initially (either because you had a fixed price shipping or a calculated shipping) then it doesn't seem right to try and increase the shipping after the fact. If that were an acceptable practice then I could see sellers using it to pawn off junk or force the buyer to back out of a sale. For example if the seller didn't like that an auction was going too cheaply, he could at the last minute add a heavy but un-desirable item to the lot and try to charge the bidder the now much higher shipping price. I think you have potentially a decent lot there but I'm not sure about the way the auction was handled assuming I understand you correctly.

Thing is, you can't change shipping during a listing. If you add more items and the shipping costs more, then you have to eat the difference. I especially bid on a listing with a certain price in mind which includes the shipping. If you decide to add more money afterwards, I wouldn't pay either. Now based on that fact, I would be hesitant to buy from you, though my wife would kill me if I ordered a big lot like that. Though you've helped me out with my site in the past, so you have points going for you. If not for that fact, I would probably not deal with you on Ebay based on this listing. Nothing personal, but this is an example of one of the stories where sellers are ripped into. If you had originally put a high shipping price and written what you did about refunding shipping, then I feel that is more legit and then would consider buying a listing, though I still think your shipping is high and I probably wouldn't risk spending that much. But at least you are up front about the money.

 

The other thing you may see is your listing won't go as high as the first time and if you add the sale price and shipping, my guess is you would have probably gotten more the first time in total. I can't see this breaking $200, but sometimes I'm wrong.

I had this in the original listing:

"SHIPPING COST MAY GO UP DUE TO THE ADDITION OF NEW ITEMS. I WILL CHARGE ACTUAL SHIPPING ON THIS LOT, WHICH WILL BE SHIPPED IN MULTIPLE BOXES!"

 

I added that info to the listing when I updated it with new items. There was plenty of time left on the auction for people to see this.
