Default Pet peeve - Sold prices not shown in the classifieds after item is sold

It really helps to see what an item was sold for. This helps potential buyers.

As a seller I can see that if say the day you posted an item you said no to a $500 offer. Then as the weeks turned into a month you said oh well and sold it to another guy for $450 because you got desperate that this would create some friction. As the seller you have every right to do this but its a bit of a concern.

I guess it bugs me when I see an item sold and I'm like "how much do those sell for anyways - oh look the price is now gone" and I'm to lazy to PM the seller.

Any one else find this to be an issue ?

Agree completely. It would be really handy to know how to price your own stuff for sale fairly.

What drives me crazy is when they remove the price from the original post to, so there is 0 record of even what they were asking for it.

Yep. I find this annoying, like typing on an iPad.

Nope, I can look at the post history and see what it was originally posted for

But I agree, I wish sellers wouldn't post "$SOLD".

Yeah I make it a point to leave my prices for just this reason and write SOLD next to them. It does result in getting 3-4 PMs asking about your R-Packed spoiler months after you sold it, but meh.

I just remove the price for that very reason. I hate thinking I'm getting a message about a potential sale and then I just get to respond with "Sorry it sold" If someone wants to know what I sold something for, I'll gladly tell them. Curly and I have messaged back and forth a few times on item pricing.

its personal preference.

if in doubt that your price is fair do OBO - ONO at least that way if someone finds a similar item for sale for $50 cheaper then you can negotiate with the buyer.
