The internet has made selling things so much easier. With the rise of eBay and online classifieds, as well as forums and other sites, you are much more likely to find a buyer for those items that are taking up space, or that you need to sell so you can upgrade to the latest and greatest model.
Unfortunately, even though you are using the internet, you still need to deal with people. Annoying, stupid people. The same people who would come to your yard sale and try and haggle with you over a $2 set of dishes are now harnessing the power of e-mail and low-balling you on the iPod you are selling on Kijiji.
I can’t count the number of times I have received ridiculously low offers for items I have for sale on Kijiji. I know everyone loves a good deal, but if I’m selling something that is in great condition at an incredibly reasonable price, offering me a fraction of that price is annoying.
