It only makes sense. Why would you buy something without seeing it first?

IF this site does require images of items for sale, may I also suggest a HAND WRITTEN piece of paper placed in the photograph with the date and RCTech USERS name. (Both Nick Name and REAL name)

Pictures sell items hundreds of times faster and it makes it safer to deal with. IMO.

you've got to be a former importatlanta user...

oh yea x2 though

Would you put a for sale sign in your driveway without the car ?
Some people would, with a note at the bottom saying "text (555) 867-5309 for pics"...........

Some also say "email or text for faster response, I'm not here that often"..You don't need to be here that often. If you're wanting to be contacted via email for notices on here. Simple, click the option to get email notifications for PM's and subscribed threads. Boom! someone sends you a PM or posts in your sales thread, you get an instant email letting you know. Hell you don't even need to come to the site to view the post or PM! You can read it right in the fricken' email you just got on your phone. So if it's some crazy tire kicker or jack wagon with a stupid as chit question you can simply ignore it...

But NOOOO....some people, who don't want to take 5 minutes or less, to post pictures would rather text pictures to every tire kicking tom dick and harry sack that texts them.......Ya, that's not a waste of time


You CAN....

1) upload pics from your phone directly to the site.
2) subscribe to your threads, and get emails when someone posts.
3) get email notifications when someone sends you a PM.

RCTech has the tools in place already to make life pretty easy. The fact that people are either too stupid or fricken' lazy to use them. Well sadly that's something I can NOT change.....

I'm done trying to get pictures out of people. No I'm not texting you, im not emailing you, im signing up for some stupid messaging app. If you can't be bothered to expend some effort to make some money by fulfilling the most basic of requirements, I'm not going to expend any to give it to you.

Some people. Smh.

It will increase interest, having more potential customers will sell your item more quickly, and increase the chances on getting what your asking instead of getting lower offers. Selling anything is a normally a "get it while its hot" transaction. Many times when there is too much hassle or too much time elapsed the buyer will become uninterested and move on. If there are pics included that will reduce that situation. But other than that, yeah why waste the time? I have never had trouble posting pics, and there are many different ways of doing it, but like other posts stated above its about not being lazy..

I would like to see a poll on users complaining about buyers flaking, low-balling and tire kicking related to no pics on that particular users F/S post..

I almost made a rant thread yesterday about how lazy people are. It's nearly 2017, we've made it so damn easy to post pictures. I won't buy something without a picture and I'm not texting some weirdo so he can have my number.
