Yup, keep it.

The only reason not to, I think, is folk worrying they aren't asking enough (or rather as much as they could), but if you get what you're happy to take, that's fine, (or should be)

If someone thinks the asking price is a bit too high / more than they can afford, I'm sure folks can make an offer via PM, and if they agree, everyone's happy.

This part of the forum is meant to be about enthusiasts exchanging items with enthusiasts - if maximum profit is the aim, Evilbay is available, with the associated scammers, fees and hassle. Ironically it's popular because Ebay has driven prices too high for what a lot of us think things are worth. We can't have it both ways.


You don't have to advertise things cheap, but decide what you'd like for your items and include the price. Not too hard, is it?

Yes this : "If someone thinks the asking price is a bit too high / more than they can afford, I'm sure folks can make an offer via PM, and if they agree, everyone's happy".

Wil work in the end so keep it the way it is now.

On the Ausmini forum we have an EOI (Expressions of Interest) section as well as a For Sale section. The latter must have a price. EOI doesn't need a price and is open to personal negotiation via PM's.

EOI is a good alternative to auction sites as it keeps the sale within the Mini community and avoids fees.

That isn't a bad idea to be honest although I'd still use the priced section for my own items.
