PRICES MUST BE IN EVERY SALES POST

<< < (3/4) > >>

Domnik:
In the case of your specific auctions, you enter the starting price, for example 30 USD, so in the case of your offer, the price is at least USD 30, so it is initially determined and constitutes a specific. My question is rather about price quotation for the auction with the option to buy now. In addition, I would like to find out if it is necessary in this situation to quote the initial prices / minimum prices for which a particular plant or seeds are put in the bidding option. Anyway, giving the initial price in the offer with the auction can be a good advertisement, especially if the auction will be from 1 USD. What do you think about Oscar? it's also interesting what the admin thinks about it. Thanks.

(14.01.2019 Of course, it was about Adam and not about Oscar. I'm sorry for my mistake.)

the initial price for the auction is not really a good indicator of the price that will be actually paid at the end of the auction, because you have to consider all the possible bids, the shipping cost, and the fact that I list my items at prices that are below what I'm comfortable selling the item for.  So I wouldn't want to have to keep posting low prices associated with my plants, so people keep asking me about buying them at the price I start my auctions at.  Also, the auctions I do on ebay are private, so you can't go back and see the final price paid for each auction.

So in conclusion - in the case of your auctions (sales entries) and forum publications, after some time no one will find out at what price the product was sold. As for me, however, this is an little inconvenience, because by reading this forum you can not compare previous and current prices. The reference point also disappears. So If you want to set the sales price based on other offers it is not possible. Auctions (regardless of whether it is a buy now option or a public or private bid) disappear after some time, so the reference point also disappears.

I gave your entries as an example, because there are probably the most on the forum. However, the case concerns all possible similar entries.
 
Thanks for explanation FlyingFoxFruits. I understand the specificity of sales in auctions. As you have noticed, your forum sales entries in connection with the specificity of the auction should not include the price visible to everyone (because these are private ads). However, the requirement to provide a price in each sales notification is included in the rules of this forum section. Thanks to this, the same prices are visible to everyone. Someone may judge that such entries do not meet the requirements of the forum regulations, or that there are some exceptions (not described). If you entered the price of the buy now on the auction and gave the price on the forum, the matter would be clean and fully compliant with the rules of the forum. Currently, the situation is different. That's why I'm going to clarify the matter. By agreeing to the auctions in this section we are going back to the option that was earlier. Previously the price was determined privately and no one knew what she was.

The question to the administrator was briefly as follows: whether by the requirement to enter the price in the offer can be omitted by providing links to the bid auctions / private auctions etc? Some forums have 100% excluded linking to the auctions due to the short lifespan of such entries, and therefore their lack of transparency. As I described earlier: after some time the thread becomes illegible to the recipients, and the forum loses some of the value of the information store. FlyingFoxFruits, maybe some solution would be to enter in your forum entries - the initial price and the price for which the product was sold? Then, the requirement to provide prices would seem to be fulfilled and the forum would keep the treasure trove of information. I would like to know if the admin provided an exception in this matter and linking the auction is acceptable in this forum. Simple explanation of the matter and description of the exception, so that everything is clear.
