Not to start any shit......BUT if it was me, I would have notified the seller if he'd like to sell me the knife HE is going to pay those fees.
Kills me when a seller asks for a buyer to pay HIS fees. Ugh. Nauseating. The fees are much closer to 3% also.
Sorry Krinsky.......hoping this turns out well for you my friend.
Not sure what this has to do with this thread, but with regards to NET pricing, I don't think it's possible to make a blanket statement about NET pricing being good or bad, without considering each individual case. If it's a good deal, then who cares if it's NET. If it's not as good of a deal, then NET just makes it even less attractive. I think what you meant to say was that you are annoyed with the fact our community uses an inconsistent practice for listing prices, and this thread was simply an opportunity to voice your frustration. Like some people ask for NET and some don't...which makes it confusing and easy to overlook for everyone. If everyone did it just one way, it would probably be better for everyone.
I had to get used to this idea at first as well, but you get used to it. NET pricing is used a lot, if not most of the time.
Nauseating is a strong word, maybe you should spearhead a community effort to change this confusing practice for the entire community? I definitely think it would benefit everyone.
