Ok, I've been surfing eBay a lot lately and I've noticed some things that sellers do that are really annoying and frankly, they sometimes completely deter me from buying whatever item, if I had the intention of buying it in the first place.
First off, my biggest pet peeve when it comes to eBay is TALKING LIKE THIS!!!!!! ONE CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH OF THIS CRAP!!!!!!!! IT'S ANNOYING AND SOMETIMES A LITTLE HARD TO READ!!!!!!!!!!!! I've seen many listings where the ENTIRE description is in capitals. I don't really know what they're thinking when they type like this. It's like they're trying to imitate those ANNOYING car salesmans on TV, and no one listens to them. D:< I can understand a little, but not a lot! A few well placed caps sentences is okay, but not the whole freakin' description.
Second. Making things sound better than they really are.. like say.. "15 FRESH VENUS FLYTRAP SEEDS!!! ULTRA RARE! PAYPAL ONLY!!!!!!!" Is just ridiculous, any CPer knows that venus flytrap seeds are anything but rare. If you can't find someone to GIVE them to you then there's places you can get them for like a dollar. This is false advertising, and I don't like being lied to. I can assume that the intended target is NON-CPers but that just makes it worse. Taking advantage of CP newbies is just cruel.
Third. Making the shipping cost outrageously high to make up for your super low eye-catching buy it now price is not only frustrating, but just plain ridiculous. It DOES NOT cost 7 dollars to ship seeds to someone. I could do it with under 2 dollars, easily. Probably even under $1.50. A 7 dollar shipping price would be more like for a nice sized healthy nep, not drosera seeds.
Ahh.. okay I'm done ranting.. unless I think of something else. I'm sure there's others that you guys have noticed. Feel free to rant like me. :P
