Can you show or quote to me where it specifically states that in writing? The reason I ask is because this item was listed one time before and both Mr. Palacios and Lela have told me that I could list the item.
Thank you again in advance for any assistance you can render in this matter.
Can you explain *why* it's not allowed to list items with a "best offer" price? As an economist (and computer scientist, less relevant here), it's pretty clear that such pricing is the most efficient way to get to the "market price" for one-off item sales... With fixed prices, either the seller sets a price too low, in which case he's unhappy, or a price too high, in which case the item does not get sold; again, the seller is unhappy.
(I can understand why it's undesirable to allow posting links to items that are actually listed for sale at other auction sites...)
Scott: It is now allowed. We were making an automatic extension of the auction sites links prohibition because many eBay sellers are coming in here attempting to repeat such processes. It seems we were over-protective of the interests of buying members at large; but as you pointed out, not necessarily for seller members. A balance must be found somehow. Thanks for your feedback.
Thank you very much for your "value added" input. Makes perfect sense to me too.
In this particular case, I personally paid about $1,500.00 for the lens and I am just attempting to capture as much of the original cost as I can without underpricing the item so much that one of my fellow Nikonians buys it here for a few pennies on a dollar and turns around and sells it on "that other extremely successful auction site."
Yes, I am the original purchaser of this like-new US Warranty lens. The lens is cosmetically perfect. Not a scratch on it and the glass is clear, and scratch and fungus-free. Bought the lens about 2 years ago, used it once and it's been sitting my bag ever since. Be careful if you're gonna bid, there are two others asking questions as well and I'm taking the highest offer over $750, even if it's $751, but it seems unlikely. I'm not saying you need to bid really high, just bid realistically on this $1,500.00 glass. Thanks.
"Stock" photo that coincidentally looks EXACTLY like mine, that is to say, like-new. This lens has only been used once. I have the original box, hood, and pamphlet. It is a USA model purchased from Adorama Camera in New York for $1,500 two years ago.
