Based on Ebay prices I'm 15 to $85 less (original asking price) and I had mine originally at $625 now 600. There hasn't even been a low ball price sent my way which I expected.
So, it kinda seems to me like you never really "lost" anything, because you were never going to be able to get that higher price anyway.
The original asking price was only based on a theoretical number that you thought you should be able to get. . Turns out that that theoretical number was higher than it should have been.
So, you haven't lost anything;. all that you've done is re-adjust your asking price, based on actual buyer interest, or lack thereof.
By the way, eBay is my preferred way of selling used photo gear, because I am guaranteed to sell it in a given time period. . I have learned that gear sells for higher amounts on eBay than it does on forums or on Craigslist. . The higher selling prices completely offset the eBay commissions, listing fees, and PayPal fees.
When I've sold photo gear on eBay, I have consistently gotten WAY more than I would be able to get elsewhere. . But, I always sell it via auction instead of Buy It Now. . I set the starting bid at ten cents and let the customers bid it up. . By doing this I get lots and lots of bids and lots of potential buyers watching the item. They compete with one another on what they think might be a "great deal" (because of the low starting bid).
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
