Yah, definitely not flipping anything. I would even dare to say I'm being pretty generous starting every single thing I'm selling at $1.00, and letting it sell for whatever it sells for..
I've sold items like that before and although in rare instances things have sold for less than I would've hoped for, overall the items didn't sell for really any less or more than they would have if I had started the items at a higher price. At least this way it's a little more fair and whoever wants it the most gets it.
And as far as just accepting offers in the B/S/T forum, the entire process sucks and usually turns into a mess of DM's, and as someone else in this thread said, 10 year olds telling me they'll mail me cash or offering trades for their old used gear I couldn't care less about. Selling stuff through eBay keeps it legit, fair, organized, and weeds out the buyers who either aren't serious or aren't old enough to have their own checking account.
Anyway, I'll probably list all the rest of my stuff I'm looking to sell on eBay tonight or tomorrow, so I will for sure make another thread in the B/S/T forum when I do! Skis, boots, outerwear, fitted's, hoodies, it's going to be a big one..
