Lol. You make it sound like some sellers need to consult their astrological chart to see if the transaction is a good one. use it or don't use it but if you use it and someone makes you an offer and you decline it let them know what you are willing to accept as a courtesy. I have people making offers to me on items I am watching all the time I decline them and let them know I would buy it if it were this price. I can watch something to see what it sells for or maybe at a later time decide to buy it. It's up to the seller to decide what he wants to sell it for and once he decides he wants to sell it for a certain price why wouldn't he sell it for that price? Like I said I just completed a transaction I made an offer to some guy in Canada and to my surprise he accepted my offer and I paid him immediately. I then told him I was sorry that I paid him because had I known he had other options of things I wanted I would have probably bought more from him. He then responded saying what CDs are you interested in. I gave him a list then he said well I could bundle those all together and sell them to you for this price. I found the price reasonable but just a little bit more than I wanted to spend so I asked him to throw in an additional CD and that would be acceptable for me. He agreed and said I'll put up a listing. This to me appeared to be a motivated seller who did not have an emotional attachment to a product and price. if I was going to offer him next to nothing for what he was selling I'm sure he would refuse. But since I made a reasonable offer to him on things he had that he wanted to get rid of we both won.
