I’ve noticed a couple or three troubling trends in BST postings lately…
The easy one to deal with is needlessly bumping other peoples BST topics by posting in them sometimes with the caption “Free Bump”. Please don’t do that. We have a one bump/day rule that we hold the original poster to out of fairness to everyone else trying to sell items so the same guy isn’t always on top. If you want to make an offer or inquire about an item offered for sale, please do so via a PM. Don’t bump other people’s topics.
Next is paypal and shipping fees as add on costs. Offering a yoyo for $50 then asking for shipping and/or paypal fees is like going to Jiffy Lube for the $20 oil change and then getting charged $10 for shop supplies. Truth in advertising is lacking. Plan ahead and price your stuff accordingly to account for shipping and paypal fees. Note that our rules expressly mention including the paypal fee in the price of an item rather than tacking it on after the fact. In my opinion, shipping costs come under the same rule.
