Roses are red, but Zerglings still are purple
@IrritatingTruth Yeah, people forget how the very first models of a new product *_always_* present problems -- some of them very, very serious. It's this damn society where we live today -- a society that stimulates people to buy more and more without thinking twice -- the main culprit of that.

I’m confused because this thing was easy to pre order all through yesterday. I had two days to do it. Put 5 down, and that was it. Why? How? These childish ppl and having to have the newest thing. Have we not learned that usually the first iteration has issue? Also the memory is terrible, for that much? I will not understand.
Roses are red, but Zerglings still are purple
@centrevez gaming Oh, so scalping isn't illegal in some countries? Well, *_PROOF IT!_* Otherwise, you are just saying rubbish.

@Roses are red, but Zerglings still are purple in many laws of other countries that Scalping is not unlawful so there is nothing that governments or the authorities can do but call for regulated changes in the law, but that can take years before they can make scalping Illegal until then it is not a chargeable offence.

Unfortunately, they will just relist them when they are allowed to. Sucks.

issue we have is that the ones that are scalped now will just wait till dec. so it has just made them list them later not much has really changed steam done their best but what should happen is ebay should give the address or something to ID the scalper to steam and get there order removed. until that is posible we will not end scalping. before people grill me i know they can disclose that info but some law needs to pass to stop scalping and that would solve it

Scalping would barely be an issue if sites like eBay actually FUCKING GOT OFF THEIR ASSES AND DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

The only practical way to obliterate scalping is to make it feasible for manufacturers to build to-order while consumers still have to go through retailers to do so Retailers add a substantial markup to everything they sell so you'd think we'd want to try to get rid of them BUT We'd need a revolution due to the changes necessary to machinery and the basic way factories work, and revolutions need a lot of support to work, and retailers would block that revolution if they were getting cut out by consumers going directly to the manufacturer. They'd only support it if they thought it would increase their sales Also, the reason we even HAVE retailers given said markup is because they're convenient and trustworthy for everyone involved A less feasible tactic (practically and legally speaking) would also be requiring personal identification for each order such that one person gets one product, possibly lifting these restrictions after enough time or enough sales. Economically, manufacturers and retailers don't give a shit what happens after they sell the product as long as it doesn't lead to a refund or a lawsuit so they wouldn't want to go through this trouble and expense

I think scalping is easily solvable. All they have to do is force any sellar using things like eBay, Amazon, etc. to sell items at the same cost as the real company, or less, for like a year or so.

The one thing that I will say that scalpers are useful for, is buying prior versions of a console that are guaranteed exploitable, for doing homebrew and stuff. That being said this sort of stuff is inexcusable. Luckily, I was able to get a Q1 2020 reservation in on day one by just being persistent with the repeatedly crashing steam website.

I was lucky enough to get my reservation day 1. I am super excited to try it out, as excited as I am, who would that much, for something that retails from 400 to 600. Just for context, I do security and I only carry hk pistols. You could literally buy almost every hk they make for the price they are selling it for

Only thing is, the scalpers have only put down a 5 dollar deposit that is refundable. So I’m the end they can back out with no losses. Now if they paid in full and can’t get their money back, that’s where the fun is at

Sure eBay can still remove the listings and ban the sellers. They can do what ever they want. They permanently banned my account for no reason whatsoever and wouldn’t even tell me why. I suspect it’s because I bought a 70 year old rifle scope, but they most certainly can do something about scalper listings.
DogOfHades 7 päivää sitten
I went to ebay, there is one listing. He wants 2200 USD. I reported it to ebay, however in the listing description, when I chose Presale, ebay the only available option writes "The item is reported as no where it is written that it is presale". But it IS written as a Presale in the description. The scalper may have found a way around it. Anyway I will keep reporting if I see these anyway, I hate scalpers and now at least there is a semblance of a tool to use.

Scalpers were a nightmare during the height of the pandemic, trying to get a copy of Ring Fit Adventure was impossible thanks to them, and checking sites that tracked stock showed them snatching copies up in less than a minute whenever it came back in stock and THEN seeing it being sold for 3-4 times the retail price by these animals.

If it wasn't for the idiots buying from the scalpers there would be no issue, they would all go away with something they can only sell for RRP. Stupid people cause the problem as much as the scalpers themselves.

Mr. Smrgol 8 päivää sitten
All eBay have to do is make it so that you can’t offer a pre-order above RRP. Wouldn’t stop businesses legitimately selling items through pre-order, wouldn’t stop people selling second had items at a marked up price. It’ll just make scalping more of a risk because you don’t have a guaranteed sale
