Here are 3 identical items for more and less the same price from 3 different sellers. All sellers are from JHB and yet the end price differs due.

 

Other Accessories - BlackBerry Torch 9800 Charging Pod for sale in Johannesburg (ID:31660271)

Data Cables - RIM® BlackBerry Torch 9800 Desktop Charging Pod for sale (ID:32447144)

Data Cables - BlackBerry 9800 Charging Pod for sale in Johannesburg (ID:31136361)

 

Surely the R35 for postage from Expansys is a reasonable amount?

 

Placed my order. No wonder Expansys have double the ratings in relating to the other sellers.

I think any sensible buyer will support sellers who charge realistic postage/shipping fees. And, yes, this could be a reason why Expansys have such excellent ratings! They are clearly not trying to "dupe" buyers.

Interesting to see that shopandship and MyBerry are the same seller, (See the Q&A for MyBerry) yet have different postage charges. As far as I understand, if you have two accounts (with BoB's permission) you couldn't sell the same items!

That's the way I understand it, too. You're a good PI, donovink! :grin:

That is the rule of thumb, but it isn't something BOB seems to monitor. Quite a few who have this 'privelege' sell the same items on both accounts.

Please note, these are separately registered companies (from a tradefeed partner). We may, at our discretion, permit this based on our internal criteria.

Cuan, with great respect, I don't know if I'm the only one but I find it difficult to understand how all the rules pertain to certain people and others have far more leeway. I realise that your tradefeed partners are important to BoB but so are the majority of smaller sellers, I would hope.

Trade Feed partners are often established, reputable online retailers. Again, it is at bidorbuy's discretion as to who we allow to have more than one account. This particular instance is that the trade feed partner gives us 2 individual /separate feeds as this is 2 distinct business entities, so logistically this is the best way to do it as these are 2 separate websites that we get a feed from, we can't combine the two.

I don't understand too much about it all but I will bow to your superior knowledge, Cuan. Thanks for responding.

Hi lily

 

It is a question of who is generating all the $$$ - in the past a whole lot has been said about certain sellers with a lot of negative ratings but because of the sheer volume of items that are sold they are "untouchable". These opinions are all documented on the forum by many buyers and in a certain case we were instructed NOT to have any input to the thread unless you actually won items from this "overseas" seller, who, had endless problems shipping items. Why then do we bother with these issues if we are not allowed our freedom of expression? You mentioned the importance of the smaller seller - by now you must know the answer to your question

 

My opinion, which I am entitled to express

 

Regards

 

Kit

I am sorry to hear that your opinion has not been taken into consideration, we do have the right to edit, remove, disagree and make decisions that may or may not be to your liking... as dicussed ad nausea, we look at a whole lot of factors, not just your opinion or "take" on the situation. The seller in this thread has almost 100% ratings on both accounts, and from a technical point of view we decided to keep the 2 separate - I am sorry you disagree with this and yes, it is about the money, after all, without the money there would be no bidorbuy... come on guys... let's keep it real! This thread is not about an overseas seller, it about another seller, who has an almost flawless record, but due to the trade feed issues we have decided to keep the account separate, which we are entitled to do... let's stick to topic at hand and not let our personal emotions and feelings turn this into a mudslinging match (even if you disagree with us) :wink:

 

Wow, I let you have your say, I didn't remove your post or blacklist you... I must have a heart!?:amuse:

 

Regards

Cuan

Are you implying that Cuan has recently visited High Street in Grahamstown? What next? :wondering:

This thread wants to start looking like the slight edging towards legalising the sale of ''pot'' plants on Bid or Buy (for medicinal use only) :nuts:

 

WE could have another locked thread stating ''Seller authorised to ..... - Only Cuan may post here"":idea:

That's a good idea, now! I know where two healthy plants can be located! But Cuan already has a "pot" plant and a litter box so I doubt he'll need any more stoking up! :grin:
