Market and evaluation

We all know the prices off straight razors and related items on that Egayish site have gone nuts. I will not take part in this.
So,for the regular members off this site,I would suggest a kind of estimated price suggestion for items on sale. This really doesnt make sence,does it?

If someone would have an item for sale,not having a clue towards the reasonable price, regular and _respected_ members would have a big say towards a fair price.

And before some english guy,living in Berlin ,starts to go furry: No,it aint for money. No,I`m not a vendor. No,I wont make a few dollars. No,it aint crappy razors ;-)

I have more razors than needed and want to stick with a few good ones,that being for personal reasons,and for their actuall quality.

So,if some newcomers could have a very fair deal,it would make us all happy.

What do our respected members say?

Actually no, I don't understand what you are saying.

I still don't get it. Are you suggesting that the members of Coticule.be should decide the price for razors offered in the MarketPlace forum?

He's as German as they come actually. Just happens to speak better English than many English-speaking. ;)

If you want to sell razors at fair prices, you have my blessing. :D
However, if you want to put an overpriced piece of junk in the MarketPlace, you have my blessing as well.:) The forum rules only dictate that you describe the item for sale in a honest and straightforward manner. Hence it is allowed to sell "warped razor, temper probably ruined, bent pin, crack in the steel all the way up to the spine (see attached picture). Asking price 299 EUR. I don't have a box for it." This is allowed.
It is however not allowed to sell the same razor for 1 EUR and call it "in mint condition".
Neither is it allowed to run "best offer" sales. You must make up your mind about a price.
You are allowed to put an item on E-bay, though, and announce it at the MarketPlace.

I believe these are solid rules, that will last a long time.

Kind regards,
Bart.

where are they?
Bwhahahaha

I think what Torbs is trying to say is this:
If a member wanted to sell an item, and had no idea of the value, would it be acceptable for other members to offer a guide price?

Sir Bart.


I havnt made myselff clear,once again.

The idea was to offer a very fair price to newcomers. As I do no longer keep up on prices, I didnt find it fair to take on eBay prices. In fact,I will glady give it to someone in need.

Ah, I see. It is not forbidden to start a thread in "The Razor's Inn" or the "Miscellaneous Stuff" section, with the question "what would you find a fair price for these items?" After that, you can base your prices for the MarketPlace on the answers in that thread. Would that solve the problem?

Kind regards,
Bart.
