Be honest...are you a diaper Capitalist?

If you got a *screaming* deal on a HTF diaper, would you resell it for a profit? What if it was a gift (or free to you somehow)? Would it matter how much profit? If not, do you judge others who do resell for profit?

Re: Be honest...are you a diaper Capitalist?

If it was a diaper that somehow came to me, that I couldn't or wouldn't use, then yes I would sell if for what I could get for it.

I wouldn't go out of my way to buy something cheap and sell it for more though.

I don't care what people do with what they own, if they can sell something and make a profit more power to them! I don't see why diapers are different from any other product we could make money on.

I sell things according to market value.

If I came across anything at well below market value, and knew I could sell it for a profit, yes I would absolutely do so! Diapers included. I have no problem with others doing this either.

I would be bummed out if someone got something from me for free and then sold it for profit. I would not do that. Generally if someone was generous enough to give me something i try to pass on the good will to someone else. Also, I just don't have enough time to buy things cheap and then sell them.

I've gotten a free diaper with an order before that I sold because I wouldn't use it.

This. As for getting something for free and then to sell it later...depends what it is and why it was given to me. IMO though, once a product is yours, it's up to you what you do with it.

I am an opportunist by nature but for some reason diapers don't make my radar. Maybe because I only use BGOS and pfs and have since I started CDing in 2007. On the other hand, if I see something that is worth reselling for a profit I do try!

I do not judge others who resell. I give without strings and always hope that if what I give doesn't work for the person than they will resell it and get what they can use!

I would be. Not for free stuff, though. I only sell that stuff if I'm told to sell it to get something else that will work better. Otherwise I ffs.

But yeah, if I had bought a Rag for $40 and then managed to sell it for $300 on eBay? You wouldn't see any shame.
