Thread: Famicom Interest Check

  1. #21
    Agreed, though that wouldn't offset international shipping in very many cases.

    I guess the net is that SSJN isn't interested in enough, and buttplant and I are so far apart that I'm not even sure it's worth a counter-offer, so I'm probably keeping most of this. There are a couple SSJN wants that I don't need. Plus I owe him a JPS2 discussion, which thankfully has way less games.

    No. That is sunk costs and I don't buy into the sunk cost fallacy. If I sell Josh or Pacrappa an amp, they aren't going to pay for the gas or mail that it took to get it to me 5 years ago.

    I made the same kind of offer that I'd make any other grandpa asking for someone to buy everything in one lot, not wanting to part it out, and asking the buyer to look for the prices.

    If you want more, look into it and name your price.

    Let me tell you something about the food you eat, clothes you wear, car you drive, etc.

    I don't feel like arguing with you about business. You can either believe me about that or not.

    But if you think anyone on here is going to pay you ebay price + shipping from japan, you're nuts. And buy it all in one lot + shipping on every item? you're double nuts. Everyone on here could turn around and just buy from ebay if they wanted to do that, and pick and choose which titles and items they want from home.

    You're already looking at them and making a price list. Finish that and post an updated list. If you want to be butthurt and not do business with me, fine. You got like 3 or 4 other guys in this thread that want to buy stuff.

    Would you be willing share your offer publicly? I think others would be interested.

    For the record, no, I didn't expect ebay + shipping with no bulk discount.

    edit: However, I also don't expect this to be the way business is done on TNL:

  6. Yes, please share.
    I've known Yoshi to be quite a few things, but top dollar ebay man was never one of them.
    So I'm curious what your fair offer that he didn't even feel worth countering was.

    Hudson Joycard Sansui SSS 10

    Total possible worth: $649

    I then halved that for an offer of $325

  8. Why would you halve it though? TNL Discount?

    Edit: TNL Discount is a legit response btw, we all sell on here knowing we're not getting eBay prices.

    making me look up the prices and buying the whole damn lot, discount.

    If wanted to name his own prices, or break it up for just the items each person wanted the most, I'd pay more.
