    I have been selling pokemon toys on ebay and thanks to the holidays the auctions have gone extremely high! but i kind of feel bad for the buyers because the toys are extremely small (i tell them this but they don't know what centimeters are...) and sum of the toys are badly painted (i claim items may have "paint deterioration") i want to give them more but sadly i'm out of toys :( has anyone else ever felt bad about selling cheap toys for high prices?

    If they know what they're buying, it's their problem. Why should you feel bad? If they were smart, they should have done a little research about the items beforehand.

    I know that but even so i don't think they deserve to be spending 20 bucks on cheap badly painted items and i know once they receive them i'm gonna get feedback saying "items are small and have wrong paint" "items are from china and small" etc....i'm even considering giving them a partial refund because of this.

    If they're buying it from you, then they don't have to hunt for them, trying to find where to buy them.
    Don't be hard on yourself, a price of something is only equal to what others value it.

    Just because you think they're "cheap", it doesn't seem so to the buyer. PLUS pokemon are awesome!

    hey

    there is nothing to feel bad about.
    if you are cheating or scamming them by hiding facts then you should feel bad.

    anyways scammers dont feel bad anyways.
    and since you are not one of them you should definitely not feel bad.

    thanks

    Actually you can find them very easy on ebay and get them for only 4 bucks! but you have to wait 30 days to get them because they come from china. Basically people are paying for faster shipping.

    They are paying for convenience. If they wanted to spend more of their time looking for a cheaper product then there is nothing stopping them. Clearly they are willing to spend the extra $19 not to look around any more :) .

    don't feel bad at all.

    You're worried about the wrong thing son. You should be worried about your Ebay account with feedbacks and refunds.
    Make sure you have everything covered in your auction because when the moment comes, which will be soon, you'll have all the proof in your auction for Ebay to see.

    No need to be a dick mate,

    Honestly man you have make the decision as to whether or not the guilt is made up for with the money you're making. If not then maybe it's time to move onto something else.

    No way should you feel bad.
    If you are smart enough to find the products and they buy it good for you.
    I also sold a few dollar store items this month I paid 1-2 dollars for and got bid up to 15-20.

    Good for you!

    When I can buy an item for $100 more than another seller, others can make the same choice.
    I'd rather spend the money on something I don't have to return. I want what I pay for, a little extra is the cherry on top.

    Show what you're selling, inform of the condition, then let the market decide.

    Pharma does it all the time. "You'll likely get nausea, erectile dysfunction and the inability to blink"
    But it cures toe fungus so it's okay, they legally warned you.

    If you feel bad, then I think that you should take them down. If your ventures in eBay is making you feel like a bad person, then stop doing it! Find another product that you might find to satisfy the buyer to a greater extent.
