What would you do? - awoj - 09-29-2012 07:02 AM

I found a Weatherspoon I need for the PC on this site and the card is only worth $0.15. So for the persons time I offered $5 delivered. It would seem this was too much of a hassle for him to do it for me.

If you had a cheap card that someone was willing to pay premium for just to help them fill their PC would you do that for them? I know I would.

I'd be happy with that!! Frustrating cause its a European version of s 92/93 UD card that is hard to come by in Australia

it sounds like a fair deal, but if it cost around 2.50 for shipping, packaging, and the seller doesnt live close to a post office, it could cost them several dollars in gas to go to and from the post office. if the seller makes a $1 of the sell, that would be fine imo, but it would not be right if they actually were losing money on the sell.

It would be in the mail as soon as the person asked for it.

Same here...but I would not PWE...I would still ship like all other cards...penny sleeve/top loader/ and bubble wrap...the persons I have sent free cards for PC know this...I even do DC# just to make sure they get it...Will usually do this when its 2.00 or less on cards...what would be the point in sending someone a pc item if it will be damaged in PWE? Just does not make any sense...LOL!!! Just my opinion.

PM sent, thanks for checking mate Smile


Thanks for everyones responses so far. I dont expect anyone to lose money on a sale, but when you are still making something (even if it is only $1) to help someone fill their main PC player, it should give you some satisfaction.

I am sure when/if this person that doesnt seem to want to sell me the card was ever in my position they would hope the seller would do it for them.

LMK what card(s) you search for. I do a TON of European/Int'l issues.
Although bv is really low on these "common" type players/cards, good luck in trying to find them! I know...with Hornacek and Eaton in my Player Collection. Unless big names/stars, my pricing has always been $1/card...sometimes less with multiple purchases.
Current shipping of bubble envelope from US overseas is $1.75 (large envelope rate, no customs).
If I have doubles, you could chance a PWE...but up to you!
