drugs often attract dumb people... with those two things together, the results can be fun!
Miracle of all miracles!
He just responded and agreed to pay for shipping. Asked me to get an estimate for him.
I once shipped a pair of speakers 2 miles, because the buyer wasn't together enough to show up at an agreed upon time for pickup. He wanted them so he paid the cost to ship.
Can't you meet him half way?
wait til he sees the quote! ha ha
Well, he bought the thing expecting to have it shipped, after all.
I am stunned to. And I'm currently in your shoes. On one hand it's great he's agreed to pay for shipping BUT now you have to go eff around with shipping that thing. It's going to be a pain. I'd charge the $80 or whatever UPS is going to charge plus an additional $750 for my time and effort. That should get him to re-think it.
I think the buyer is going to be our next thread about how some seller is trying to rip him off with shipping costs.
Edit: Not that I think you are going to rip him off, but I'm assuming he has no idea how much shipping costs if he is willing to pay for it!
For free?, because there was no shipping charge in the auction. Not only that, it said local pickup only. Only a dipwad, buys something like an amp blindly, with no shipping charges, and then waits for a shipping and handling charge after the fact, or a quote. He's dealing with a moron and he must keep that in mind through this whole transaction.
If it'll help, I have the mustache for it!
There are so many geographically challenged folks...and poor reading comprehension doesn't help one little bit. Your eBay experiences are something else.
You are singlehandedly convincing me to never sell anything on eBay
UPS just quoted me $73 just for shipping.
If I have them pack it... another $32. I sent the guy a message, but no reply yet.
He must really want that amp if he ends up willing to pay that for it.
No, not for free. What kind of sense would that make for what I said? I was thinking that the must have expected to pay something for shipping.
Without establishing a pattern, I don't think "dipwad" and "moron" can be definitively applied. He might have just made a mistake, as humans are prone to doing...or he might have just wanted to "claim" the item now and work out the details later (which is being a bit of an A-hole, but not necessarily stupid).
It's not the best situation...but a lot of the responses here seem rather extreme and violent in proportion to the situation.
Stuff like this happens when you sell stuff over the Internet. It's part of why it stinks so much to be a seller. Even so, Craig's List is worse IME! Hard to imagine anything worse than E-Bay, but it has been my experience with C.L.
For what it’s worth... I sent the buyer an invoice for actual shipping costs... and he happily paid it.
I’ll take it back to UPS tomorrow... and it will be a done deal... which blows my mind. I thought this thing was going to be a train wreck.
How much did you sell it for? I've been looking for a five channel home amplifier for a long time. I would have given you $5000 for it!
Guess the guy really wanted the amp. It is good it all worked out.
