    I agree, lots of nutty people on Kijiji. I have had some pretty good luck in selling stuff, but have to wade thru all the nuts to finally sell. If they don't really want to buy it why do they bother contacting you? I just don't get it. And then there is definitely a scam out there because I have been contacted by these scam artists wanting to buy my item and use Paypal to pay me - then they contact their credit card company who contact Paypal, remove YOUR money by giving them THEIR money back and they also have your item! Be very careful.

    I've had horrible luck with kijiji. I offered music lessons and tutoring. I would get someone that was interested and then they would cancel the day beforehand. It's been very frustrating.

    I've discovered a lot of mom groups on Facebook sellling their used toys and clothes. The one Paris/Brant Mum Buy & Sell is very active with nearly 3000 users. You may have more success there than on kijiji though Flamborough is a bit out of that jurisdiction - there are also groups for Hamilton and there's Mommy Trading Post - Oakville, Burlington & Milton

    I know a woman who was trying to sell her car on kijiji, and the buyer wanted to pay for it with Paypal. I thought that was a little ridiculous imo anyway.

    But I know your feeling, I sold a few games once (finally got the right buyer) and this woman wanted to buy the games for her son. So I told her I'd meet her at the mall, eastern entrance where nobody goes in. It's not like she didn't know which mall it was, because I told her (not mentioning the name of the mall on here). I waited for almost 2 hours just to get a notification on my phone saying "I don't want the games anymore, you're charging too much and I don't have that kind of money to spend. I'll go to Future Shop instead." I was so p'd off. And I'm pretty sure Future Shop charges a fortune for most games so I don't understand how 8 bucks is too expensive as opposed to 20 bucks? Oh well, that's people on kijiji for you.

    On a positive note, I got my rabbit cage on a seller from kijiji for 30 bucks and the lady even took it out to the car for me, in the pouring rain. I was really happy about that one

    Me:Will you accept $40 for the clothing rack?
    Seller: No thank you.
    Me: that's odd. Your ad only said to make an offer, which is exactly what I did. You chose to not accept, but then didn't make a counter offer? Hmmmm, you must not want to actually hear people's offers if your not willing to state how much YOU'D be willing to accept for it, then possibly bargain with someone who actually wants to purchase your item. If you don't want to sell or even counter offer, then post your items as "Make an Offer". Because of your failure to communicate, I will give someone else my hard earned money.
    Have a nice day
    Seller: lol>>>we actually need the rack now. Just didn't realize you needed a lengthy explanation. Welcome to the business world honey.
    Me: Most sellers, especially the ones I have dealt with, are courteous to potential buyers and offer an explanation, but I guess common courtesy is loss on some. If your going to be using your item, then please remove it from the ads as its very misleading and many intelligent buyers will assume the item is for sale.
    Seller: Everything is for sale...its all about the price. Just keep your hard earned money.

    I left it at that, still misdified that they weren't willing to counter offer. I was willing to go up to $80. This is what ticks me off about some sellers, they want to sell their item but are unwilling to post a price or to haggle. Oh well, I ended up finding a better clothing rack for only $25, and this one spun around so it was easier for buyers at the sale.
    Honestly, this is normal practice and to me you went to extremes. Person said no thank you on your offer.....your next response should had bee maybe up the offer or drop it and buy elsewhere. As always you can find better deals you did.

    It seems to take forever to sell anything, I had one item took 2 months and still got my asking price, but was getting emails daily for item so knew was in demand, and asking price with deamnd made me firm on price. If I had jumped on 1st offers I would be less $300 in pocket.

    I went to meet someone yesterday. We agreed on a price and when I got there they wouldn't pay!! The wanted it for less!! If I did nit want it out of my garage I would have just walked away!
    We agreed on a new price...$15 lower then the price I wanted.
    later I went to meet someone else and they were a no show!! They picked the time!! Not the best time for me..but I want it gone so I said yes...oh kijiji!!

    Be like me and FIRM ( pick up only ) and 1st come 1st served ( not holding till your next payday unless we have meet and you leave a 25% + non-refundable deposit - yes even did on some $20 items ). Item sits in garage/walkway no entrance to house for security.

    Meeting people is always a hit and miss for no shows, then they will drag you on 3 trips and if they really want , will try and lower price.

    Who says different people, could be different phising emails to get better price and know you still have it. I bet you will have a lowball offer coming soon, and you will jump as stoodup too many times..
