    Default Gumtree

    Why is it that whenever someone replies to an ad on gumtree they want the goods for next to nothing - regardless of what you are asking for them....

    Have a few things on there at the moment and am giving a very good deal on each of them... Folk still think that the price I've stated is only a suggested price - and then they want me to deliver them to them for nothing on top.......

    Rant over...

    I'm neither.....

    Have taken the items off as seems to be a waste of effort - good items at a fair price that people seem to want for nearly free....

    Ad is off now anyway - would rather keep items rather than virtually give them away

    LoL. I had one. Wanted £20 for a hands free phone kit. Some n0ob asked me if it was still available and offered me £10. I replied back "yep still available and £30 to your good self" Reply I got back was "but its for sale for £20" I replied "Exactly, if I wanted to give it away Id have posted it in the free section, now **** off!" LoL.

    lol.... The folk that have emailed me want to pay similar prices fro stuff that I had advertised at like £50 - cost double that and each item was hardly used

    One asked if I would post and I said no as the item is fragile and didn't want it damaged - then asked if I would mind delivering it - if you pay for my fuel I will I replied..... he lived in southampton and I'm in Liverpool

    I think some assume as you've advertised it for free its going to be free lol....

    All I've had from the off is 'Would you take £x' or 'is the price flexible' or 'Can you deliver it so that I can look before I buy - then make you an offer'.... had enough so I'm keeping the items

    Never know when they might come in handy although I can't ever see them seeing the light of day again lol...
