Bid on "new seller" item?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by nashvillebill, Jan 7, 2005.

  1. I saw a mixer on Ebay that may be worth getting. Only problem: the seller is brand new, and has no other items for sale. No picture either, though description sounds okay. It is here in the US, within driving distance...

    Worth bidding? Pass? I posted a question asking if I could pick up and pay in person, but haven't heard back yet.

    Nobody else has bid yet, with a day to go.
  2. Everyone was a new seller at one time...
  3. Yep, but the lack of a picture has me a little concerned.
  4. Yea...I'd shoot for the pickup.
  5. I noticed in his ID history:he's been a member since 2002. But no completed transactions so no feedback. Maybe I'll take a chance, it's not too expensive... if nobody else bids :rolleyes:

    If he doesn't reply to the e-mail, I wouldn't bid. Good communication is a feedback point on eBay.

    Yup, no reply should equal no bid. If he replies witha good level of detail, and what you actually want, then he's probably legit.
