I’m admittedly new to Mercari but WTF is up with the “Promote” feature on this @!&# stain of a platform?
I have a few items listed, and I have some “likes” on 2 or 3 of them. When I click on promote I am offered 2 options: Offer to Likers or Reduce Price. I click on "Offer to Likers " and I understand that I have to reduce the price by 5% minimum. Last night the price was $58. I decided not to offer that to Likers as I wanted to see if I could sell at full price today. No bites, so I go to offer to Likers again, type in $58, and Mercari tells me my offer MUST be $50 or less. WTF is this chicken @$&! ??? That is damn near 18% off the last price, and 22% off of listed price ($65)?!
What is a further kick to the nuts is that I just received an offer for $56. I attempted to accept the offer and Mercari pops up a message "Problem with payment method " (keep in mind offers are binding.), I click on accept offer again after trying to promote to my Likers but DECIDED NOT TO because of the BS $50 PRICE TAG and Mercari says “You’ve made a new offer.” NO I $&#^@^$# DIDN’T YOU WORTHLESS TURD!!!
Any insight into WTF I am doing wrong would be really helpful right now.
