Suppose I want to sell some ASEs. I can do that on eBay for $35 minus fees of 10% and $3 shipping. Left with: $35-$3.5-$3 = $28.50. Or I can sell to the local dealer at $25.
Guess what I am gonna do.
Is that $3 worth the risk of getting ripped off by the buyer who claims they never received it?
I always have to calculate the risk of being ripped off and Ebay siding with the buyer. In my 22 years dealing with that outfit I don't think I ever saw them side with a seller.
