Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


I hate it and there is nothing that I can do about it. Am I doing something wrong or not?


The thing is I'm trying to sell some stuff online and NOBODY IS BUYING IT!!!! How long do I have to wait for someone to buy this crap that I no longer want? This stuff that I'm trying to sell is suppose to help me buy a desktop computer. But no one wants to buy it. The ones who do want to buy it are trying to scam me. I'm trying to get people locally to buy these bags and not a single person wants it. Maybe I'm impatient but I really need to buy this desktop computer because I'm sick of using my mother's laptop. I've tired almost everything. I tried to make it different prices that can appeal to people and still no one wants it. There ain't shit wrong with the bags and people still don't want it. I could wait and get a job but that will take too long. I'm trying to get fast cash without getting scammed. I did manage to sell something but I got twenty dollars for it and they were Nintendo items. I'm sick of this waiting around. Can someone please take these bags from me because I am sick of seeing them?

Does anyone else feel like this when they're trying ton sell something? Don't you just hate the feeling of not getting someone to buy your stuff you no longer want? Should I stop complaining and be patient? Or should I just get a job and pay for the desktop that way?


Here is the bag that I'm trying to sell:




Enjoy!!!

You may find it more successful to get a job and save that way.

Selling things, online or in person, is difficult and requires certain sorts of skillsets, which in themselves take time. It can be strongly frustrating.

what exactly are you selling, for how much, and where?

i'm often surprised at the random shit people buy off of craigslist, so i'm wondering what you're selling and what you're asking for it

It's not Craiglist. It's a selling app called Close5. There was also another one called Letgo.

I'm trying to sell an authentic Juicy Couture handbag with wallet and wristlet. The protective bag is included. I'm trying to sell it at least $250. I even went as low as $98 but still nobody wants it.

I don't really feel comfortable selling on Craiglist.

I see. Well, that doesn't help much. Also, price out the items that you're trying to sell, and you'll find out why you're not selling them.

Good luck.

Does anyone else feel like this when they're trying ton sell something?


I can't say I have. When I'm selling something I offer it at approximately the market rate for its age and condition, which I research beforehand. If I really want to get rid of it quickly I'll "price it to move", meaning I'll sell it for far enough below market rate to entice people into an impulse buy while taking an acceptable loss.


Don't you just hate the feeling of not getting someone to buy your stuff you no longer want?


I could imagine it's quite upsetting, but no.


Should I stop complaining and be patient?


Probably, but complaining can be cathartic and helpful sometimes. I'm sorry you're frustrated.


Or should I just get a job and pay for the desktop that way


There are reasons to get a job beyond this, but this would be a good reason to. Nevertheless, getting a job can be difficult and take a lot of time, so prepare for the frustration to continue if you go this route.

I tried to sell them at a decent price but still no one wants it. Is the bag that ugly or something?

I use OfferUp, it's a pretty good app and stuff can sell pretty fast. Also, please don't spend ~$400+ on a pre-built, build one yourself, could get better parts and it'd be much better.

I really don't even know what to do anymore. I really want this desktop and this bag to disappear.

It depends on what you are selling. Whenever I tried to sell older ps4 games they never sold that well.
