Group Buy!

Post by Gordon1 » Thu Sep 04, 2008 9:10 pm

Hey, I was just on ebay.com and look what I found click

Shipping is $40 to the states and only the states. It works out to about $9.20 a console and they could be sold/distributed to members in other countries.

Just a thought!

That actually makes them about the same price as buying a single one off Ebay .

You can get N64 consoles for $15 shipped in the U.S. on Ebay all the time. By the time someone buys these and then has to reship them it will come out to like $16-$18 each shipped in the US. And then 8 people will still have to pay $7-$10 for an expansion pack.

A LOT of trouble for someone to do this and make no profit, waste a LOT of time, and not really be able to give anyone a deal.

Now ShockSlayer should buy these just because he burns through so many of them. :lol:

There's one that didn't sell that was less than $15 shipped that is now re-listed.

And here:

And here's one that sold for $15 shipped with games.

You can buy N64 consoles ALL DAY LONG on Ebay for $15 shipped in the US.

And maybe you should re-read everything that was written.

You posted a link to an Auction for sale ONLY in the US.

I mentioned anyone can get them cheaper than $15 shipped in the US.

So I showed where anyone in the US can get them for $15 shipped all the time.
As for the send them to people in other countries, why would it be profitable for anyone to do this ?

just remember that as-is is just that and that there may be some legit lemons in the bunch, Not to be a nay-sayer because a perfect system would be nice, a dose of reality is essential

I know I showed a link for Americans only, why else would I post it asking for other members. Which mostly live in the states.

Sorry for being to loose with my definition of you!

Who said it was profitable? Not me. Do you understand the meaning of group buy? I did not expect anyone to profit from this, just help out other forum members!

What the heck are you talking about.
Almost EVERY one of those was less than $10 BIN , then whatever it costs shipped to you.

That's EXACTLY what you are wanting from this group buy. $10 consoles + shipping to you or others around the world.

And I just showed you how ANYONE can get an N64 for $10 + the cost of shipping.

What need is there for this group buy ? Especially a group buy where you are asking someone to buy and ship out over 20 N64's. Do you realize the effort it takes to ship 20 N64's.

And as mentioned 8 of them need expansion packs and all are As-is untested most likely.

Seriously does no-one read for comprehension anymore. :roll:

This makes 15 complete units, 5 more that need jumper pak, and 3 that are bare (no cover or jumper pak) These are all working units, great for resellers looking to turn them into complete systems to be enjoyed across the great ole' U.S.A.!!
Yes, it appears that your reading comprehension is quite terrible.


If you read with some comprehension you would notice that my initial post stated that that was about $9.20 a console shipped to the initial buyer. So, when I state the price it includes shipping! Also, I'm pretty sure postage from the states to Canada is less that $10. The group buy was an opportunity for people to get a cheap n64. But I guess you Americans have it so good you don't even realize it :wink:

Also, I just bought 100 510ohm 1/8watt resistors and I plan to create my own jumper pah with the lovely pinout by skyone. It will be so damn easy!

You are killing me here.

$9.20 a console is not shipped to you. It's shipped to the person in the US who then has to box it up (boxes cost money), go to the post office (gas costs money) fill out custom forms (pain in the A$$) and waste a lot of time shipping it to you. So $9.20 a console is NOT SHIPPED !! :roll:

And you can just click one of those n64 $10 BIN I posted and pay with Paypal and have one shipped right to you for $10 + postage.

Yea but I guess us "spoiled" Americans want everything handed to US ???

And shipping has gone up a TON. Postage for a system to Canada is getting quite high. The last one I sent costs almost $15.

Once again, I never said it was $9.20 shipped to the final recipient.

.... Yeah for $20.

I never said you had everything handed to you, just your domestic shipping is f-ing cheap.

Ok, don't do it then!

Way to go with avoiding the reading comprehension statement! :roll:
