Not sure I understand

Recommended Posts

If you can buy MegaCity Dallas/Ft Worth from the MegaScenery website for $17.95 + a few buck for shipping. Why did someone buy it on Ebay for $24.50 + $5.00 shipping? Can someone explain what the benefit of doing so was.Thanks,Jeff

So is it illegal to purchase addons from Ebay? I haven't bought any FS addons from there yet, but if I can find a better deal on an addon that I want then I would go for it as long as it's legal.Jeff

(1) Somebody paid $35 for it and is dumping it;(2) Somebody hopes to get orders for $24.50 and go buy a copy to send to the person for $17.95 - thus making $6.45 - and probably a couple dollars on shipping - amazing how many people make more profit on the shipping than on the actual product sold;(3) People believe EVERYTHING on Ebay is a bargin.A smart shopper always checks several sources and finds the right combination of price and service.Unfortunately those appear to be an endangered species.

If what you are buying is not an original package, or a pirated copy. Then it is illegal. The problem with buying from ebay or any other non conventional method is you can never be sure you have a legal licensed copy!!


Thanks

I have sold many of my no longer used FS addon's on ebay and always include a picture of the item with the case and manual.Not once did I get "more than what it was worth". I get a few bucks for something I no longer use and someone else get's something they want at a decent price.I have also paid for some add-on's via e-bay and have never had a problem with pirated stuff or warez.
