Odd ebay seller comment in listing
« on: April 20, 2008, 02:28:00 PM »
I was looking through ebay for some stuff, and I found a seller who put this in his listing:

Quote
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL :

Bid at least 48 hours before the end of the auction and enjoy 10% discount on your shipping and handling. Bid NOW and SAVE !


I just found it weird, since most sellers would rather have their item bid up at the last minute (or at least I always look forward to it), but I guess he feels that if he gets a few extra people to bid early then it will go up even more at the end.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

ha, that's a good one. But basically he's saying right up front that he's overcharging for shipping...

Maybe one free sampler of KY with express shipping service. How does that sound? Think I could make it as a Ebay seller? All I need is my Mom's van and a value card for the Wal-Mart cafes!  :D
