Agreed, but I think it's an important distinction. I wouldn't necessarily refer to all resellers scalpers.SumoLego said:xwingpilot said:Scalpers buy current sets from retail stores so there's no stock left and then flip for a profit causing consumers to either go without or pay over the odds.Perhaps I should clarify - a 'scalper' is a pejorative term for a type of seller.
Again agreed. I fall into the category who go without, and I would assume that those who actually pay over the odds aren't happy either. Their actions certainly perpetuate the practice though.SumoLego said:However, a seller - no matter the moral connotations - is only able to sell an item or product at what the market will bear.
I'm not sure that's necessarily correct is it? I mean it might be used as such, but isn't scalping specifically denying consumers product at RRP buy cleaning-our stores and then flipping it for well above RRP?SumoLego said:
And 'scalper' is just a pejorative term for a reseller.
