    I’ve heard of sellers jacking the prices like that because it’s cheaper to keep a listing on eBay then it is to set up a new listing.
    They get down to the last pieces they jack up the price to unsellable levels and then drop it back down when the next shipment comes in.

    I saw it a lot when I was looking mini quads/tiny whoops a couple years ago. Not indicative of a shady outfit, just them trying to save some money.

    You can only do that with a fixed price listing not bid I think. That's more to keep the quantity sold rather than save on listing fees I think, higher volume implies trustworthy seller etc

    i mean in small quantities yes. if small legos are edible then bbs definitely are. depends on how hungry u are and how much ur willing to risk.

    When will people learn about depreciation. Unless its in the box never used, most likely a stock gun isn't worth what u paid for it. the only way this is disproved is if you buy a gun for cheap at a yard sale and then resell it.

    Yep because that's not depreciation, that's arbitrage.
