I've made 72 orders since 2014 - all over $75 to save on shipping and virtually every card was cheaper than ebay prices.

Great, easy to work with - I highly recommend.

I don't think they have huge margins worked into their prices so getting ticked because they don't discount a PSA 10 card that's $19 is kind of a joke to me.

Welcome to the forum.

As a collector, I generally do not email sellers about a better price....I either pass if the price is not to my liking or look for a seller who offers the same item with the best offer option and make an offer through that seller. I can't remember ever sending a seller a message to solicit a better price, however, I routinely send offers via the best offer option.

As a seller, I use the best offer option to indicate to buyers I am willing to entertain reasonable offers on an item. However, as I have costs to cover, if the item I am offering does not have the best offer option, I also pass on any offers like you made.

It's always cheaper to buy through their web site versus ebay. You can buy all of the cards on your list in those grades from their site right now for $158.58 which includes free shipping. That is actually less than your offer with shipping. (If you live in Mass. they will also charge state sales tax.)

I agree - it's within their rights to hold the line on their pricing. I also had asked one time for a discount on something they offered, they passed, but were prompt and courteous in responding. I still shop 4SC, just know now that the price I see is what I will pay - and often it's a fair price and I pay it.

Again, I'm a huge fan of 4SC.

I have bought from them also. It went smooth as silk and prices are cheaper than their eBay store. I just used PayPal and they sent the cards it was pretty much that simple.

All of the sellers i have dealt with have given me what I wanted. Probably because I was reasonable with my offers. If I buy one card from a dealer I understand the price and shipping will be what it is. If I buy two cards from the same dealer (that each card had its own listing) then I would expect them to combine shipping. If I buy multiple items, say 5 or 6 or 10 etc., I would expect a reasonable discount. Combine all the cards into one listing and I buy it straight away with the discounted price, or I put them all in my shopping cart and then ask for a total, and they can give the discount there.

Never really had any refusals from any seller at all ever in the over hundred purchases I made over the years, until the one mentioned. Are they bad sellers on eBay, no. If someone asked whether they should buy from them, I would say go ahead. But for me, on anything I buy i expect to pay what I think is reasonable, I'm not outrageous, so if I don't get what I want, I spend my money elsewhere. The seller loses my business but he has as much right to refuse me as i do to offer what I offer. I just won't buy from them anymore.

Here's a trick: shop their stuff on eBay with their site open in a different tab and buy off their site. Their site items are cheaper than as marked on eBay.

Also, with junk wax stuff you can usually wait for them to cut prices to move things as their inventory ages. It isn't like they'll run out...

Right but the seller makes more money in the long run without buyers like you as they dont have to discount like other sellers so the get max ROI to make up for less volume of buyers

The second paragraph is the optimum one. Most of it was from the junk wax era where there are lots of copies floating around. You would figure a small discount on a bulk purchase wouldn't be refused. But anyway...life goes on.

You are probably correct. But they risk losing future purchases from the buyer as well. Not all my purchases from them are of the bulk variety if my memory serves me correctly. Plus even with the discount, as small as it was, they should be making money off me anyway, so why refuse? But like I said...life goes on.

I wonder if I went to their website got the same cards, if they are still available, and asked for the same discount %, they would accept. That would be funny if they did. I would have to chuckle anyway.
