Recently I began a search for a Canon 1d mkii or IIn. I pm'd a lot of sellers on both POTN & FM. the first thing I noticed was a lack of pictures and links to sites that went nowhere. How does anyone expect to sell anything, let alone something that costs
$ 1,000.00. Without showing potential buyers the condition of the item.
next is the lack of response to pm's. I found myself simply getting pissed off when a seller took their sweet time to respond, especially when they post "if you need pictures, just pm me". If you want to sell an item , respond to the potential buyers. I found myself thinking that If a seller won't respond to a pm, I refuse to buy from them.
Last. If you sell an item, mark it as sold and lock the thread!
I found a 1d mkiin on Fm which took about 10 minutes to close the deal.
You would think that with the current economy potential sellers would be a little more diligent regarding their sales.
