  1. For resale. The only thrift store I used to go to 2 years ago would have a different person in their scanning every day of the week. The phone would alert when a minimum resale price was found. The book area was very compact and hard to get into as it was and they would 'guard' the isle and prevent anyone from looking at the books until they finish scanning them. One of the reasons I quit going to thrift stores. I still see this at the flea market every once in a while but it is rare. I'm not going to lie, I look stuff up to resale while at the flea market but will step away from the table so as not to offend anyone. On a side note, I found the rarest Atari game I have ever found in the wild last week, Waterworld (I did not need to look that up).
  2. Atari was the cooler system to have. Seems the telegames versions were easier to find than many of their counterparts (at least here in NC) and they were a little cheaper usually and being a kid, every penny counted.
  3. Drop shipping and actually against ebay rules.
  4. They are relaxing shipping times due to COVID19 and for some sellers will remove feedback related to shipping delays.
  5. Both of the other two were sold at the same time on two different auction sites and both went for just over $10000 each.
  6. I have gotten to where I only bid on a few sellers' items that I have now bought from quite a lot and trust. I did not think it could look like shilling. Not defending this bidder, but you never know.
  7. I have had this happen. I learned to tape the package very securely when using bubble mailers on both ends and around the package to prevent this after I received my first empty bubble envelope (three early issues of retro gamer mag). This is 75% postal issue, 25% seller issue as they should have provided more resistance to prevent the mailer from being opened. I have received about 5 packages of all types ever through the USPS that have arrived with this message (about 5,000 received, 15,000 shipped) so the rate is not high.
  8. https://www.countryliving.com/shopping/a18198848/is-goodwill-a-nonprofit/ They are supposedly a charity, but the only thing Goodwill provides is a website for online training, a place for lesser law offenders to complete community service time and hiring disabled people. If they hired better employees and did not rely upon free labor, maybe they would not ring up an item incorrectly.
  9. I have found most people that ask questions are more likely to be unhappy with a purchase. Plus, ebay itself provides terrible customer service, why should the people who pay to use it be any different?
  10. As it shows delivered, I believe you are safe as long as the address shipped to was the PayPal address.
  11. If you do not see it in PayPal, you have not received payment. What makes you believe payment was received? Thanks
  12. I think this is it: http://www.zafinnbooks.com/
  13. Looks like I was taken for whatever the game cost. I immediately paid when this was promised, seeing it has been about 6 years and no updates or games, I am doubtful this will ever be released.
