Some sellers are a bit daft aren't they?

Was watching an item on ebay, £10 plus £7 P+P. Completely forgot about it and it ended bidless. Had a look at the sellers history and it had been listed several times before (and not on weekends either so these were paid listings).
Messaged seller, said 'sorry, I forgot to bid, would you take £15 including P+P and I'll paypal you directly to save fees'. Seller says no, £17 or nothing. I said no thank you and bought elsewhere, ironically for less.

For the sake of losing £2 he's now relisted for the fourth time and will pay FVF. I'm eagerly watching the item not sell this time as well. grin

Can't see his profit margins being great TBH.

Some people are silly! I've had an item up for sale the last few days, 99p starting bid, not intending to make money just having a clear out and hate throwing good things away. Anyway tonight I get a message, will you do a buy it now for £12? Well considering the price tag clearly says £9.99 and I stated this in my listing... Um yes ok then hmm the mind boggles.

If your item doesn't sell your relisting is free.
