    Asking price versus selling price?

    Not sure if this has been covered before. I could not find it while searching the forums. Should you change the post to reflect the actual price the watch sold for, or should you leave it at the asking price? I’m just trying to be fair to both sides. I am a seller as well as a buyer. The actual sale price would help you price things as a seller and a buyer.

    I'm sorry...I don't understand..
    If you are selling a watch in the for sale section, then you would put the price you are selling it for.
    You might put in the description section MSRP $1800.00.....Paid $900.00...Selling for $500.00.
    Something like that?

    We aren't picky as long as a price stays with the post. Removing the price gets you an Infraction which doesn't help your reputation much.

    I put the final sold price on the post just for record.

    I create a post to sell a watch. My asking price is $500. I sell the watch for $450. Should I post the post $450 that was paid when I mark the post as sold?

    In theory it would be a great idea for other buyers. In practice many sellers would not like to advertise how far down they were willing to drop prices. So to answer your question please to add a final post with the actual sales price if you want to. Who knows...it may start a trend.

    Sure, when you mark it sold, add "for $450."

    I think it's a good idea, and I have done it, but I guess I forget sometimes. I definitely helps future sellers and buyers get a better gauge for how much a certain model is worth. Sometimes, I'll PM a previous seller and ask them what the actual selling price was.

    I think it's a good idea to put the actual selling price. However, some sellers may be more willing to move a piece quickly at a lower price so I don't believe you can get an exact value.

    The businesses listing watches for sale on the forum may be less willing to post the sale price but if you are a private seller it would be good to establish a database of actual selling prices.
