    So
    I went on Reverb
    First time
    Placed an item..
    $125.00
    Received a reply
    {
    Are you kidding
    $1.00 for [ item ]
    $125.00 shipping
    }
    Guessed I messed up...

    That’s pretty sly since shipping is not refunded on returned items! :thumb:

    you just made a simple mistake - but it looks bad because ....

    back in the day when ebay only charged a fee on the items selling price the scammers would sell items for $1 and charge what they wanted to for the shipping so they made money and only paid a fee on the $1 !

    ebay and reverb have dumb rules now because of shifty players.

    I sold an amp recently for $145 dollars. To have Fedex box it and ship it was $55.00 and was insured for $500.00. I will have to just charge people actual shipping cause damn, I didn’t make any money on it. I could have just taken it to the local GC and got the same amount, cash in hand.
