A week later she's texting saying she wants a refund because she has bought a cheaper one somewhere else. When you explain you're not a shop and she scratched the fook out of it, she threatens coming back with big brothers and then the Gardaí.

Last time I used Adverts.
So what happened ? Did you have to refund ?

1. Put a min price on your item. always.
2. Ban everyone who try to circumvent it by commenting instead of making offer or offering swaps when "no swaps" mentioned.
3. ...
4. Profit!

I sold off my retro games console collection on adverts last year...... The aggressiveness of the responses was ridiculous. And people take it as a personal insult if you don't accept their "€50 can collect today, accept now" for items that were worth triple that.

Item for sale: €400.

Potential buyer: €200, but only if it is working 100%.

Me: I hate my life.

But how can I be sure someone won't accept a swap unless I ask? Maybe they selected the no swaps option by accident and also didn't mean to type it in the description.

It's pretty much a cast iron rule of thumb that people offering swaps on ads don't actually have anything worth swapping, or at least not to the value of the item they're trying to buy. If you're selling a new iPhone & someone offers "swap for anything in my ads" invariably their listings will be something like an iron, a few romance novels, a cheap internet router & a collection of Kylie Minogue cassettes. How tempting!

Adverts you never get sick of people on it with what ever your i
Selling

My best was for a iPhone I was selling a few years back swap you a ninja sword set. Then another offer was I will swap you a grow kit for growing the magic grass ha ha.

But the best is when you offer people the ture valve of what there selling they go nuts at you. Say a game up for 25 it'd worth about 20 at best so offer them 18 + post. They go nuts at you call you a time waster and block you. Then you see there still selling the same game 6 months later for 15 now ......

The one guy who I refused to meet as he txt me 20 times and 4 phone calls in 2 hours over something for 15 euros. I told him I fell unconferable selling you the game and got bad feed back for that ?. WTF people ha ha

I'm selling a S5 on adverts at the moment for 250e.

I get 3 offers to swap. My mistake - I never put "NO SWAPS" in the description, so I hastily amend my advert to say so.

first "offer" is

Bidder - "what would be your last price - it takes 30e to unlock"

My reply - I'm not bidding against myself. Make me a genuine offer

Bidder - 150e.

My reply - I will take €220

Bidder - Way high - can't afford that much.

My reply (Having checked his other posts) - If its too much, why are you commenting on another advert for a S5 where is says 280e and no less? Why are you commenting on mine offering about half the price?

I get stuff new online for cheaper than what some dreamers put their second hand items up for. Just because you spent €1,000 5 years ago, doesn't mean it's worth €850 now... Somehow. People overpriced their crap.

Ive bought and sold quite a bit on it...mixed results...its good for buying.
But the amount of people,sellers included who wont take paypal is ridiculous...they expect you to go to the inconvenience of a bank transfer for something worth a fiver"so they dont have to pay 20cent to paypal.
"check my feedback bud"
Its typical irish, being short sighted...I wont give paypal anything!!...but theyll be stuck with there mills and boons novels trying to sell them for 20 years clogging up adverts.ie

adverts.ie ...listen up!!...Insist on sellers accepting paypal...start charging people a small fee for listsings...it will get rid of the crud of which there is way too much.
I love pressing the nearby button to see whats for sale nearby but 90% of it is rubbish that will never sell.
