As a seller - If you have no interest buying a book - please don't post in a sales thread.

Just pass along.

Sellers are well aware of market prices.

Yeah , sorry no. Not interested in censorship from anyone. If you sell in a forum that is public it is open to public response.

Agreed...just clogs the thread up.

If you dont want comments, sell books on a platform where comments arent allowed, like MCS or Ebay. This is a discussion forum. Comments are allowed. Part of the trade-off to not paying any fees.

It's just a observation I've seen on sales threads by new forum members pricing aggressively.

And it was this thread I finally decided to speak my mind.

It's one thing to post on a sales thread stuff like they need to show pics of the books or they can't sell pgx here under the forum selling guidelines.

That information is helpful for possible new sellers selling for the first time.

Prices that they are asking, if you feel strongly that it is over fmv then private message them.
They either heed your advice and adjust it or they don't.

You never know who is willing to pay the sellers price


Exactly...otherwise you're just hi-jacking someone's thread. That what PM's are for.

I have a couple books for sale on e-bay at the moment that far exceed the latest sales. Truth be told? I don’t really want to sell them. But if someone wants to pay a premium? That’s fine.

If that was the case here, I’d completely understand. Again, I just wanted to help.

However, in hindsight, perhaps I should have shared the information in a PM.
Exactly, thats what discussion forums are for and why comments ARE ALLOWED. Thats what discussion forums are for.

Agreed, attacking the seller's asking price in the thread is a dick move.

I'm missing something. How is asking 450 for iron man #1 4.0 unreasonable? - as it just sold for that - right? Is every single one selling for 450 okay no - only one, right? But maybe it's a trend? And he lowers 15$ and it's no longer outrageous. That's tight. Again I often miss things and you guys and a girl will have fun I hope with my next/first sell post. Gotta say I read those 'good lucks' as anything but. And was like 'damn, ouch' with each one - y'all are tough. Haha. And sounds like you all were being sincere. Here to learn something. thanks.

Again, I just want to clear everything up. I didn’t feel attacked at all. I had a CBCS slab and just wanted to move it so I fixed the price and put it at market value. All someone did was inform me that my asking price was unreasonable. Do I care they told me that? No. I made profit off of the book at the end of the day so I’m not worried.

@robo The original asking price was $900.
The sincere replies were based on that.
Seller then adjusted the price to $450.
Final selling price was $435.

Is someone charging I high price really being 'aggressive'? Seems some feel that way. And maybe its that some of you are real pros at all this and it's how you identify yourself - and nothing wrong with that - as legit as anything else. But this ain't the simplest thing to do - and pricing/selling is a skill some haven't earned yet. I lost my point here. Oh read aggressive pricing - good luck. lol Cheers - and that was not sarcastic! promise, seriously. Swear.

No worries. But you think it was unreasonable? I don't - it just wasn't a steal. And at the ceiling but I'm attempting to learn here.

On the other hand when a newer or less-active member posts an over-priced item they risk ruining their reputation and creating animosity. None of us are going to warm up to a forum member who is coming to the forum to ask 50%-100% over FMV for their items. So giving them a chance to correct that is also giving them a chance to salvage their forum reputation. Perhaps it would be better done through PM rather than in the thread, but I doubt I would be forward enough to PM someone I have no relationship with and tell them their price is to high. I would also probably be inclined to post something in the thread. I like the way @steverogers did it once: "Wow, are those selling for that much these days? I haven't looked at the prices in a while?" I thought that was a great subtle way to call out the price. Although I think even that approach kind of ended up hi-jacking the thread.
and honestly when I did post that I haven’t looked at books in about a year lol. But yeah if I feel like someone has something overpriced I may say something that just may make someone do a-little research in just in case they are new to selling.

Not everyone saw the original asking price that’s why when you look at the thread as it stands it appears the seller was being called out on the $450 price which is not the case. I think the sincere replies accomplished their intended purpose. The seller saw that his asking price was high he adjusted it and got the sale sounds like a win to me.

Also I had a recent sales thread and someone commented that I had a book priced too low so it does go both ways.

You are far too kind.

If they meant well they would have sent you a pm to inform you.

By posting in the thread they were trying to hurt you ny suggesting to your market on this forum that they should not pay your asking price.

As I said earlier this is a dick move.

The seller can always drop the price if it is too high at the start.

It is much harder to do anything about a price that is too low once the book has been sold.

Do not pat yourself on the back for waving a red flag for all to see when you could have quietly informed the seller via PM.

You are not the hero in this story.

His positive attitude should be lauded but I would not find any fault if he rightly expressed outrage.

No back patting expected as I was not one who replied about the original asking price.
I agree with your statement:
It is much harder to do anything about a price that is too low once the book has been sold.
Key word is sold but not too late to do something after listing it.
If I meant to say $500 but typed $400 I would adjust the price and say my bad.
In my sales threads I always say claim thru PM that way I can control the flow of the sale.

I’m not sure how someone informing me that my price was a little unreasonable is a personal attack. Sure they may not agree with it but I also don’t want to overprice a book either.
