File under humorous eBay prices
 
This one must either be made out of precious metals, or someone got their decimal place wrong...

This has to be one of the most absurd things I’ve seen on eBay. You could easily get a custom of this and years worth of rent in an apartment depending on where you live.

I've seen that guy's other listings. His prices are absurd. He put up a Gemini200 Continental B735 initially for $298. Now it's up to $629. WTF?

Yes, those prices are over the top, but under more typical situations, eBay has cooked their goose in my world with the ridiculously expensive shipping schemes of theirs. :rolleyes:

What are you talking about? eBay doesn't set shipping prices, individual sellers do. For the things I typically shop for on eBay (mostly not models), I've found shipping prices to be very fair. In the rare instance I see shipping that is obviously too high, I'll send a polite message to the seller asking if they can ship it cheaper. Sometimes I'll agree to pay their shipping price with the agreement they will refund me the difference if the actual shipping cost ends up lower.

Maybe your experience is different being in Canada.

I hate how Ebay takes a portion of the sellers shipping fee...why should they make money off your shipping as a seller!

DC-10_Tony (or "Damaged Cranium-10 times_Tony" as dylan calls him LOL) has me on his block list so he likely won't see my reply, but yet another one of his posts has me scratching my head.

Seriously, what are you talking about? Sellers determine their own return policy. eBay will never force you to accept returns unless the item you ship doesn't match the description in your listing. I sell things all the time on eBay and do not accept returns. Of course, some buyers will try to scam sellers in various ways, and unfortunately eBay/PayPal will sometimes side with these buyers, but I've never had that happen. You just have to be smart as a seller and do everything to cover your butt.
