The dumbest seller on eBay


Recommended Posts

Makes no sense. Feedback looks solid, so I'm not sure what's going on.

 

Guess: Seller tried using the new Turbolister 2, and it gacked on importing his old TL1 listings. I'll bet the $999.99 prices are off by 2 decimal points across the board. The repeated listings are probably due to network issues or software malfunction as well: You don't get confirmation (i.e., it looks like the software is hung up) so you try resubmitting, until by the time you finally get confirmation back you have multiple sets running.

 

Hell, I don't know... just trying to make sense of it...

I e-mailed the seller and made him aware of the prices. I can't see any of his CDs selling for $999.99. Heck, even at 99 cents each, they're a hard sell without cases and artwork. One thing for sure, he's sure to get one hell of a wake-up call come invoice time. 244 CDs at $4.80 each (for the $500+ listing category) equals $1,171.20 in listing fees. And not one of those CDs will sell to offset that. It adds up to a real kick in the ass.

At least he's offering free shipping:-)

Maybe DUMBASS was a bit harsh, but you'd think a 5-year ebay veteran with almost 2,000 positives would know better and check the listings. (I could understand if he was a rookie.) And by listing the same CD seven times (in the case of G3 "Live in Tokyo" and others), you're not doing your profit margin any favors. A better method would be to state "7 available" in a single auction format. Dan's right- it makes no sense. And what's more, this isn't the first time he's tried to list CDs at an affordable $999.99. He ran hundreds of titles (discs only, no cases or art) on Oct 25 and none of them sold when the auctions ended on Oct 30. (Surprise, surprise.) Hmmm... maybe this guy is a DUMBASS.

The only thing I can think is that somebody has hijacked his account.

I'd understand if someone try an experiment and list bunch of $999.99 CDs on their store for $0.05 insertion fees, ...but to list 244 AUCTION style for $4.80 insertion fee each... that's... :screwy:

 

Ya, it could be Turbolister 2 convertion bug, but still when uploading it should ring a HUGE bell to you when you see $1171 insertion fees!

 

Turbolister 2 is a piece of shit btw and I have numerous problems with it. It crashes every time I try to use this new "in line" editing feature and then double click to edit the listing - baam! What's more disturbing is that when I restart it may not want to open at all - and I'd have to go and run the manual update before it is functional again. :2up:

Tony are you forgetting that if he listed on Ebay.ca this past Monday it only cost him 10 cents to list and it was free for Buy It Now items? Who's looking dumb now? Ooooh yeah! He still is. :lol:

This guy's slow on the uptake. His listings are still at $999.99 and nobody's bidding. I wonder if he'll throw in a free jewel case with a $999.99 bid. Or would that be an extra $199? :)

 

As for Turbo Lister 2, I'm quite happy with it. It's way better than Blackthorne (in my side) that charges you $25 a month for nothing but headaches. The only disadvantage to Turbo Lister 2 is you can't make listing modifications in the program that are reflected simultaneously on your eBay listings. But hey- it's free, right?

You mean as completely free?

 

It was free to add the BIN. But it only cost 10cents to list.

If you check his feedback and check the items he has there, they are all decent priced items with more than one and all Buy It Now....Maybe it was hijacked.

Go back to the end of October and you'll see he ran a similar auction- hundreds of bid-less titles at $999 each with multiple listings of each CD. Don't you think he would catch on/change his password? The auction in October ran for a full 5 days and didn't end pre-maturely as you might guess they would if the auctions were truly sabotaged. How bazaar... ahem, bizarre.

I think he just tries to score "one kill wonder" on a discount listing day, that's all. Maybe he saw that ridiculous PS3 auction going for $10,000,000 the other day and decided he can pull something similar with an Neil Diamond CD for $999.99, or hoping for a dyslexic buyer who would misread $999.99 for $000.99 and then will come through out of sheer honour obligation... :loser:

eBay listing sale on that day. 20 cents per listing. They will be updated shortly. Thanks

 

Somehow I feel he is missing the point. Nobody's going to pay a thousand bucks for a Spin Doctors CD without artwork and case. Even the Bulletboys "Zaza" he is selling isn't worth that much! :P

I just hate seeing anyone (buyers or sellers) getting ripped off on eBay.

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
