Wow that is a drag. You offer it at a price and I agree to take it at that price then you sell it to someone after I agree to take it. You can be first in line to get a job at Moosejaw (before they stepped up and did the right thing).

That bites on 02/15/2010 23:23:30 MST Print View

Garry, that really bites- you were 31 minutes ahead of the other guy, offered full price, then someone come along and adds $20 to the asking price-
(ethical discussion aside) Did the seller give you an option to match the higher price?

Vadim:

Since you asked...

1. Shawn stated his price.
2. Gary accepted Shawn's terms. That's a deal right there!
3. Bad form for you to muscle in with a higher price.
4. Bad form for Shawn to accept!

So yes, please do the right thing and take care of it.

EDIT: I see Vadim has backed out. Good for him!

Good form Vadim.. I know it's hard to back off of something you want.

Maybe I am wrong... but when I see something like "$160 or best offer" -- I interpret that as:

(1) $160 clinches the deal.
(2) but seller may accept a lower price (counter offer)

I don't interpret "best offer" to mean bidding war/highest offer. And I don't ever recall seeing any bidding wars here on the forum. This isn't Ebay.

But this is my interpretation. What do y'all think?

Ben,

I agree with the points you make.

$160 OR LESS in this case. Definitely not more.

nice Vadim on 02/16/2010 09:26:11 MST Print View

OP should have done it right by stating the price...then reduced it if no takers etc...you know, the way we do it here, not "there." $160.00 was the stated price.
