When purchasing on ebay
« on: October 05, 2020, 0704 UTC »
Just a note to any forum member re ebay rules on purchases.

What follows is a message from user deck_27

Who are you BTW?

Hi,
can i simply plug line level audio into the mini socket, then Ariel or load straight out the back,
also is there any protection on the output against mis match or short.

Im in the uk is there still a discount for through the forum or direct

cheers k.

Oh dear...

Firstly eBay isn't a messaging service and using pm via the forum or emaiing direct is far better.

Asking for a discount via eBay is very much against their rules (not mine) and have in the past had my ad removed as I have tried to ask them to contact me directly.

Despite repeated attempts to this user they still contacted me via the eBay messaging service.

I have a link to a video in the ad with my email scrolling across the screen but yet some don't get it.

Look, eBay is quite heavily policed so please if you want a better price please deal directly with the seller.

'It's better to give than receive' so why RX when you can TX!

                            Buy one from me, NOW!

Great discounts on ALL my transmitters if purchased via HFUnderground


                                              ;)

You received this message via Ebay messaging, now you claim Ebay isnt a messaging service?

Really?

No.
Maybe if you offered a free fire extinguisher with all purchases you would generate more sales....
