Speaking as a foreigner, the open price system is unpleasant.  Asking price is more enjoyable but set price is the best.

If everyone can post pictures of products being sold and set price, it would be really awesome.

I don't really understand the concept of different price categories but I would atleast ask people to post prices as many of them are not posting the prices.
I don't really like disturbing someone just for the sake of price and also don't want to take time to ask them which really wastes my time to save their number and ping on whatsapp and wait for reply. Kind of boring stuff.

http://www.rcindia.org/for-sale/guidelines-for-classifieds/

I have been getting quite a bit of feedback on item [3] in the above guidelines.  Frankly, I am in two minds about this one.  There are reasons why it should be enforced, and there are reasons why an asking price should not be enforced.  I checked the US RC forums, and most of them do NOT enforce an asking price (the quote is "what is wrong with bidding?"... and it seems there is no SIMPLE answer!).

I am leaning towards leaving that flexibility to the seller, it is his item.  But we will fight against double dealing (selling to someone for a higher price AFTER confirming to someone else, unless the buyer did not pay in a reasonable amount of time time).

Comments ?


I am not sure which forum you are picking up that the Quoting price is "Optional" ? RCGroup, one of ubiquitously "defacto" site for English speaking people has "Price" as a Title Item and appears in the column.
NOT Quoting price usually leads in Seller taking a desperate newbie for a ride.
As far as "Bidding" goes, putting a Price, people can still negotiate a price.
AFAIK, this is NOT a bidding forum, drawing any "Commission" from the proceed, so better keep it that way. I have seen  the recent trend here (after hiatus from the hobby and this forum for the last 3-4 years that NOT quoting the price has become NORM.
Not telling the price upfront almost always leads to the Seller double- triple dealing and quoting obnoxious price.  And since all this happens in the background without others knowing it, the seller is always confident to get some unsuspecting Prey.

If you are selling an item whose  current "New" price is known, why not put your expectation unless you are somewhat hesitant that your asking price would draw flak

Since the Voting has a almost Absolute majority of 90% saying "YES" , lets close this poll and make the Quoting price mandatory .

Hi,

I think it should be mandatory to mention the price, whether the seller has the bill and to quote the price that it is being sold for. The info should be with a clear picture of the item for sale.
The price does not become a disadvantage because the seller is free to ask for whatever he or she thinks is correct. They should also mention the age of the produxCt
