Stop with the PM means nothing. if someone wants the item rules say send or post a message saying I will take it.
It is not ok to send or post a message saying I will pay twice what you are asking. That is interferance. And Interfering is not OK.
If a seller posts an item with "taking offers" then ok to field offers. If he posts an item with a price then just like Ebay when you press "Buy it now" button When someone says I will take it they own it at that price.

I personally don't think what Sean did was interfering. The BST rules say, "favorable comments are generally permitted by third parties." It was a favorable comment to the seller.

Let me rephrase...if I'm selling a card, and a member says "PM Sent" on a card, that could mean ANYTHING.....it could mean, I will take it at your asking price, or it could mean, I will offer you half of what you are asking. Take your pick.

Really? Until that post says "SOLD" , "I'll take it"or "SALE PENDING" its all fair game. If I was buying something for a fraction of the value I would post "I'll take it" immediately just to avoid the negotiation and someone else snagging it. Why cant I offer double? I can offer double on eBay, just not as a BIN.

Agreed. For me, I will put a "PM sent" simply because I want the seller to know that I've sent you a message, and I hope they will see it.

I just completed a transaction in the last week on the BST. I was willing to pay the full price, but living in Canada, I realize that is a problem for some. I wanted to make it straightforward and as simple as I could for options and pricing on shipping, all for the seller.

I would have put "I'll take it", but if I do so, and the shipping becomes a problem, it's not fair to the seller. If everyone else thinks it's been sold, but seller won't ship to me, it becomes an issue for that seller to have an "I'll take it" on the thread.

last post on this thread
"his comments were favorable to seller" But not to the buyer. Interfering is not OK

PM means nothing ..Ok Then nothing stops him from sending PM and saying I will take it. BUT That's not what he did he posted interference. Interfering is not OK

I can offer double on Ebay, just not on a BIN. Seller posting an item for sale with a price listed on BST is just like a BIN. All you need to do is say I will take it. Saying you will pay double on BST is exactly like sending a note to Ebay seller who just sold am item and offering double. Interfering is not OK

Find the thread where a guy posted a deal he got on Ebay here and his friend sent note to seller "Just to help Seller" offering him more. Seller cancels sale guy not only loses out on deal but a friendship. Interferance is not ok. If you disagree ,free country Your choice go ahead. But there will always be a consequence. Someone will be hurt.

If Sean (or anyone, obviously) put that in there BEFORE there was an indication of an 'I will take it' type response from a buyer, or a 'sold' notification from the seller, then no. If he did that AFTER such an indication, then yes. (IMO)

ANYTHING done via PM is private. And personally, I don't care what you call it (help, interference, love, hate, whatever) and it could be situationally different. It is really on the BUYER as to how he responds to it.

And PM sent means only PM sent. To be honest, I've always interpreted it to be an extra notification to the seller that the person who sent it just wanted to make sure they checked, and/or as placeholder in case the sellers inbox was full.

+1. I would like someone to notify me if I made I pricing error. I have done that in the past when things have been offered to me too cheap. I wouldn't want to be known as someone who tries to buy things for 10%. I prefer to try to make sure both sides are happy on deals.
