Most times, you will win with a trade. If you say no trade, you loose the oppoertunity to possible find someone who just might trade you more value and maybe an easier item to sell, and perhaps make an extra buck. When I see an ad, I always offer trade FIRST. I am already interested in the product just by contacting the seller. If they say sorry sale only, thats alright, I will buy it if I need or want it bad enough. But don't be foolish and not respond to offers. I have someone playing this GAME on craigslist. I politely asked if they were interested in a trade NO RESPONSE, 2 or 3 times. SO I went elsewhere. But 1 month later, the item is still on craigslist. SO again I contact them and ask if they have an issue cause I contacted them a couple of times. SO now, i ask him to text the number. SO in the text I make the trade Offer, NO RESPONSE. If the imbecile would have written, sorry no trades, I need cash, guess what? He's have the cash 3 days ago. Operating like this is just silly and not getting him nowhere. And I'm pissed enough that I won't offer him anything. People are loosing the logic of negotiating. It hurts them and it hurts us.
