Where private Classified ads are concerned, I've paid full price a number of times, because the seller under-valued their item and I knew the real-world price.
When I advertise things, I price them at a Buy it Now price instead of adding 5-10% only to discount. That places my ads on the lowest end of the scale and I get things sold quickly. With Classifieds, do your homework.
Also, with high-value items that are being bought from afar, accept Only bank/bank wire transfers or Cash. Money orders and Cashiers Checks can be forged easily.
