Amazon Second Hand Music Chance'ers/ Sellers??
They never fail to make me laugh.
Looking for a picture of this CD album [Image: 51Cxcm2BV-L._SL500_.jpg]
album to post a few mins ago I came across this from seller BOOKS HEAVEN .
Condition Used Good.
CD Plays well but packaging may show some wear from usage.
£1,988.99
They even want £1.28 on top for P&P.Big Grin

New its only £15 in mint condition you can still buy it new direct from the SF record label in Germany.
Can anyone top this for the worst deal of the year so far?

£6.50 and you don't pay for delivery. This has to be worse. Corrupting young people like that. Tongue

In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed. They produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace. And what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

I'd want them to pay me more than £6.50 to have that in the house

It probably costs several thousand quid to cover Royal Mail postal charge increases!

I had quite a few hundred CDs on Amazon, but sold one to Portugal the other day and realised after the RM price increases I was losing money on most CDs I had advertised. To rub my nose in it, the one to Portugal never got there so I had to refund!
Rather than raise the prices (which would starting to be at silly levels) I just pulled the lot. It's a lot of effort to make no money whatsoever.

But yeah - £2000 is pushing it a little!

I read a comment online a while ago saying that Amazon doesn't pass on certain charges to marketplace traders for selling things if they have over a certain amount of items always for sale - it's possible that this company (and others) do this to continuously have that minimum by listing said items at such ludicrous prices.

Makes sense (well, sort of) I have seen the same sort of thing happening on ePay

Okay, just purchased a pre-owned CD copy of this via Amazon uk - other sellers for £6.36 to include delivery. (please excuse the wardrobe malfunction on the cover pic).

I did consider another offer which was a couple of quid more.

But an offer I didn’t consider was from EB STORE UK [oddly despatched from the states] for the princely sum of £15, 375.24 plus £1.26 p&p
