    I previously wrote sellers every now and again with info on their hat and try to be friendly, but in general it felt too much like a busy body and I’ve quit doing it. Sometimes it was cool, but at the end of the day while eBay is both a friendly swap shop and a business transaction for most folks it is more a business.

    You'd probably envy me a little more if I told you how much I paid. ;)

    Thanks, Bob! I specifically grabbed this because I know you have several.

    For the Wind Trolley I would reply, Thank You and due to the awareness of the increased technology of the hat the price has gone up accordingly.
    As for the BIN just counter with two dollars over the BIN!

    Ha ha....I just offered $25 on a $30 price, but in my defense it is a $30 starting bid (not a BIN).

    I generally take the best offer button on open auctions as an invitation to low-ball the hat.




    >Also, I am baffled by the buyers who offer a price two dollars under my BIN. For instance $33 instead of $35. I most often accept, but in bewilderment. Is it so they can think they got the last word or something?

    Maybe I just don’t understand people anymore, or maybe I just ate too much pizza.

    The one that gets me is a listing for, say, $100. The auction expires, it doesn't sell. Then it's relisted for $125.

    I hate those price hikes after an auction has ended. Same for the seller's that lower the price & jack up shipping fees in the hopes no one will notice. [emoji50][emoji848]

    If there's a "make an offer" option, I'll always try for at least a 50% reduction in the price.

    Or you use the "Make Offer" on a "Buy It Now" auction, and you make a reasonable offer of 10-15% less than the asking price. They counter with an offer of, say, 50 cents off of a $50 item. WTH did the seller waste my time posting a "Make Offer" option if they weren't serious about considering offers? :mad::mad: Now I won't buy from them at any price...

    Yep seen that many times. Or I have seen them lower the price but raise the shipping amount to make up the difference.

    My wife usually only wears swoopy sun hats, but I think this might win her over to Panama hats:
