Default Do's and Dont's of selling

I know alot of you guys on here get irritated like me when you see some of these for sale threads. So I decided to compile a list of my for sale negatives.

1. Cleanliness is next to godliness lol. CLEAN YOUR STUFF BEFORE YOU TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR STUFF!!! Do you really expect to sell something covered in mud and dirt? That is a complete turn off of purchase for me. All that tells me is that you don't care about your item at all, you probably beat the crap out of it, and have alot of issues with it so you just want to get it off of your hands.

2. POST PICTURES. Do you know how annoying it is to click on a thread only to be greeted by no pics? That just shows laziness, again a complete purchase turn off. "I dont know how to post pics here, Ill text or email you pics". That phrase just screams i stole pics from somebody else and i have a better chance of not getting caught if i dont post them for everybody to see.

3. "I got to get this gone", "I need this outta here" and whatever other meth addict phrases you say. That just sounds like your a crack head who just stole something and looking to fence it. It does not make me want to buy.

4. ALUMINUM PARTS DOES NOT INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR RC $1000. You can put all the bling you want on a tmaxx, but at the end of the day its still just a tmaxx. Its your money pit, don't bling it out if you dont plan on keeping it because you will never recoup all that money.

5. 400 + shipping + paypal fees. Really? Paypal fees? Dude YOUR SELLING AN ITEM, THEREFOR THEY ARE YOUR SELLER FEES. Nobody asked YOU to sell YOUR item. YOU made a conscious decision to sell something, YOU take the hit. As soon as I see + paypal fees, thats my que to exit thread immediately.

6. Feller thread. What the heck is a feller thread. Every thread is a feller thread. If you dont get the price you want, your not going to sell. Isn't every thread like that?

If you follow this guide your item will sell.

I want to hear what anybody else has to add to the list.

#3 is my favorite. And then you offer $10-20 below asking price, and you the reply "if I cant get my asking price, plus FEEs I'll just keep it"

#4 is my favorite. All the people who dump a bunch of money and add so much stuff to their vehicle and think they are entitled to compensation for it. Got news for you jokers, get over it and suck up the loss its your own fault.

I really dont know how to post pics on here and I take pride in the stuff I sell. Its not really lazy to not post pics because that way you only have to post them once, I have had to email pics tons of times which I think sucks way more than posting them on here ONCE.

I like it when a guy has a trader rating of 40+ and he "Don't know how to post pics" or he says e-mail for pics. Lazy!

Maybe you could post a picture of a perfect for sale thread as an example.

Great post, just in the wrong section....

I would ask to have it moved, or it will probably end up being deleted. Not being an @ss, just letting you know.
