Listing the phone with the age and warranty information could increase the chance of the sale, because I for instance take into account the battery life. But this is carbonite, someone with more knowledge then me about the specific phone will see the bargain price and then query about it anyways, someone who is really interested in it.

So ya if it's a bargain, it won't matter. If it's close to market price those details start mattering more since it could influence my decision. Ok this device is less than a year old so good battery. This one doesn't list it's age, but the other classified does at the same price I'd go with certainty.

Agreed, and I do give all of these info through. Battery health etc. Age and warranty is where I would never give a direct indication unless I have the POP/invoice in front of me.

You do not though?

Only after someone messages you - which is the entire basis of this post!

Half assed initial posts; in turn you lose probably 75% of people's interest and you wonder why sales are going through a slump!

My sales aren't though? Haha, so relax man. You do it your way, I'll do it my way. I CONFIRM EVERYTHING, before concluding a deal. Let my itrader do the talking not you?

And by this I mean that if out of 81 deals or whatever I had one bad itrader cool, I'll agree that everyone else is correct, but it's not the case. All my buyers are happy. So why should I change the way I operate to make 1 or 2 guys happy? Who does not even really have the intention of buying anything from me. Most people buying phones already knows me from the site and buys phones that is not even listed on Carb. So like I said man, I get your point and everything, but do your things your way and I'll do mine my way.

Bro? I've already quoted this post of yours but let me do it again...

Haven't sold 1 phone on this site in 2 months hence the "laziness" .
Like others have mentioned, you can use this to your advantage - take a minute or two and improve your initial posts and I gaurentee you will have better luck here.


Also, iTrader on a Reseller account is like a sex worker keeping count; meaningless...

If you check your settings you can hide all the accounts that got created after Prophecy shop closed and only deal with quality people. There is also a filter that hides members posts that struggle with common literacy.

Then you can enjoy Carb the way it used to be.
While going back to the good old days, bring back newshost.

The results are in - 72% agree that you should do better! The other 28% just liked the word tits, thus skewing the results....


Thank you all and bye
