    Happen to click on his/her feedback while browsing one of his past sellers and came upon it and found out he has no feedback as a seller! How does one have enough money to buy so much shit?

    All his feedback appears to be from half.com for books. I wonder if its the account for a library or something weird like that.

    Many people use a different account for selling than they do for buying.

    He averages about 40 items per day, and that's only according to feedback numbers. Probably more with auctions where no feedbacks were traded.

    This person is incredibly smart to design and code such a solution. In the end, everyone is happy too (seller sells book for listed price, buyer receives book that was listed, Quality7 profits).

    I wonder what a 100,000+ feedback shooting star icon looks like.

    Wow, that's very interesting and very smart. But for the seller with the high feedback, what if he/she gets screwed over, then what? Two people get fucked over. Never thought about that when I posted.

    Good thing that Red isn't a mod for eBay. They would be screwed. :p

    most likely that is why he only looks for very underpriced books. Even if one out of ten fail, he is still ahead of the pack.

    no, they have strict rules about that. if you buy something off of ebay, you are never allowed to resell it. they software that checks your sale auctions against you bought auctions. if they find a match, they charge you a penalty fee of 10% of your listed item's beginning auction cost.

    I would imagine that it would be hard to make money doing that anyways. Only was I can see it is if you buy something then repair it and sell it.

    That was pretty bad and three pair of rolling eyes, huh?? :roll:

    This is no different from any middlemen business, except he doesn't do anything and doesn't care how the deal end up.
