Re: Pictures--absolutely necessary? Negotiable?

The only time I'm willing to buy an item without seeing a picture first is if the item is brand new, never used. I never list an item without pictures unless the same conditions apply - brand new.

I would never buy from a FSOT ad without a picture..did that once and only once, and was horribly burned....

I have bought new items without pictures before, but if it is not new, I need to see a picture.

And if the price is super low...I need to see a picture even more.

I like to see pics so at least there is more of a chance of the items being real and not a scam. Not that pictures couldn't be faked or what not....

Re: Pictures--absolutely necessary? Negotiable?

I've GOT to see pics. And I try to save those pics on a folder on my desktop--that way if the posting gets deleted after being sold and the purchase is REALLY off from what the picture said I have proof.

"Will post pics later" is tricky to me too. It seems like there's be a lot of SLOW transactions are here lately.. if you don't have pics yet, it's okay to wait to click "post", KWIM? You can take the time to write it all up and then post it when you have a pic. I just don't like having to keep checking back for pics.. especially if it's something I know I want.

I also will not email for pics. It's a pet peeve. One can always ask how to post pics in the post anywhere (ask the pros, etc). It's kind of like a sign that you've learned the ways of DS and are a little more vested in the forum if you learn how to post pics. JMHO.

I need to see pics before I buy and I'm less likely to respond to a post without pics. However, if I see something I want for a good price then I might respond and ask for pics, but I will not buy without seeing pictures.

It's generally advised to see pics of the item because they want to make sure it really exists to prevent fraud.
