Gumtree blows my balls.

RANT WARNING! This is a rant.

 

I have to get this off my chest.

 

I was supposed to have an ebay account by now but my debit card is taking a lot longer than expected.

So to cut a long story short I ventured in to the waters of gumtree, and holy fucking shit! IT SUCKS.

 

I ran a total of around 8 adverts for clothes, and vintage books and comics, and various other items.

So to make my stuff attractive I did what most do, look on ebay for a second hand price THEN list it on scum tree for the most reasonable lower price you can find.

 

My pictures were top drawer, I put effort into them, listed my stuff quick and concise and was friendly.

NOTHING SELLS.

 

Let me just say that again..

 

NOTHING FUCKING SELLS, NO ONE EMAILS, NO ONE BIDS, NOT EVEN NIGERIAN PRINCES.

 

I have listed over 18 items in the past two weeks and I have had ONE email for something I was selling at the £350 mark and it was a top deal.

I mailed this guy back and BLAM guess what? No reply, nothing, nadda, fuck all, zip, no return address, nothing.

 

What the fuck?

 

I have to use this place in desperate hope that something will sell, Im in the UK up north and if it works in your country then good for you.

 

BUT GUESS WHAT?

 

I thought MAYBE my prices are a little too high so I tried an experiment and lowered the prices on half my stuff.

NOTHING HAPPENED.

 

One item, and im not kidding you 30 VIEWS the only way you could off got a better deal was by stealing it and not getting fucking caught doing it.

 

Other items I left a gap so if a flipper saw it he would be more interested *(I make sure i get my stuff cheap)

The only thing I have managed to sell was my Nintendo wii for a shitty £40, which wasnt as bad as it could have been, but really you know if people were not directly looking at the ad, this is the only thing they could do.

 

1. WOW NICE ILL TAKE A CLOSER LOOK.

2. That prices is too reasonable, maybe he kills people when they arrive at his house or something?

3. Well I cant make 100$$$ on this so I dont want it.

4. If he listed for free and brought the item to me and maybe if he paid me some cash for even bothering with him and take the item.

 

FUCK YOU ASSHOLES

 

6 Hardback books with a total value of £50 LISTED FOR 9 FUCKING QUID!

20 VIEWS!

Not even a nibble!

 

Moleskin jacket in superb condition Listed for £30 bucks, 25 views not one bid.

 

Italian leather jacket vintage listed for £25 bucks, guess what? NOTHING. 31 views.

 

Designer Voi jeans shirt listed for a crummy fiver, worth 35 brand new in top condition with pictures and everything and fucking measurments...

 

20+ views and not one bid.

 

Freeview recorder costs £160 brand new, cheapest on ebay £50 without P&P MINE gets 60 views NOTHING HAPPENED.

 

FUCK YOU.

 

 

 

Thanks all that was needed.
