Do my eyes deceive me?
Selling and buying things online is tricky enough when dealing with established retailers, as we’ve seen several times in this article. When you’re dealing with the rise of online marketplaces where normal people can sell and trade their goods, it can be even more of a minefield. Sure, you’d hope that everyone is telling the truth, but usually, there’s no way of checking.
Sometimes, however, a picture paints a thousand words. If I’m selling clothes online(we’ve got a fast-growing baby here) then I’ll usually put in the listing that we’re a smoke and pet-free household. It’s a big selling point for some buyers, especially those with allergies. Little tip: if you do this, don’t then take a photo that shows your cat on top of the item for sale.
