  2. HGM pricing mistake

    i have mis-priced buy it now items on ebay before and had auctions that didnt make what i thought they would I honoured the sale although it was at a loss myself. The price you see is the price you pay. If the fault is your own take it on the chin Your bottom line always what you look at, you can sheer a sheep many times but you can only fleece him once
  3. it is EXACTLY and TOTALLY be design how we are in this state of affairs. Read Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky from 1971. It is a playbook of what has unfolded Read some quotes from it https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/1711776-rules-for-radicals-a-pragmatic-primer-for-realistic-radicals What is it that in any area of local government, police, fire service, councils, NHS, politicians and people in authority across all of the UK have all been trained by politic charity " Common Purpose " Common Purpose (CP) is a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates ‘Future Leaders’ of society. CP selects individuals and ‘trains’ them to learn how society works, who 'pulls the levers of power' and how CP ‘graduates’ can use this knowledge to lead 'Outside Authority’. Children, teenagers and adults have their prejudices removed. Graduates are ‘empowered’ to become ‘Leaders’ and work in ‘partnership’ with other CP graduates. have trained some 30,000 adult graduates in UK and changed the lives of some 80,000 people, including schoolchildren and young people. But evidence shows that Common Purpose is rather more than a Charity ‘empowering' people and communities’. In fact, CP is an elitest pro-EU political organisation helping to replace democracy in UK, and worldwide, with CP chosen ‘elite’ leaders. In truth, their hidden networks and political objectives are undermining and destroying our democratic society and are threatening ‘free will’ in adults, teenagers and children. Their work is funded by public money and big business, including international banks. It is important for researchers on this site to realise that the majority of Common Purpose 'graduates' are victims, who have little if any understanding of the wider role of Common Purpose within UK society, nor of its connections to higher government and the European Union. Drawn into CP training by a flattering invitation, or selected by their company or organisation, this recruitment is normally carried out by a previously trained CP person - now recruiting for the cause. Candidates are screened and selected (or rejected) by CP Advisory Board members in their area. Both candidates and 'trained graduates' will have no real understanding of Common Purpose's wider role to help achieve a political and social paradigm shift in the UK. The real objective, would appear to be to replace our traditional UK democracy with the new regime of the EU superstate. By blurring the boundaries between people, professions, public and private sectors, responsibility and accountability, CP encourages graduates to believe that as new selected leaders, CP graduates can work together, outside of the established political and social structures, to achieve this paradigm shift or CHANGE. The so called "Leading Outside Authority". In doing so, the allegiance of the individual becomes 're-framed' on CP colleagues and their NETWORK. Using behavioural and experiential learning techniques, the views of graduates can be remoulded to conform to the new Common Purpose. Most will not be aware this has happened, but we are given immediate clues in descriptions by graduates that Common Purpose training is 'life changing', 'disturbing, or 'unsettling'. Trained and operating under the Chatham House rules of secrecy (details of discussion, those present and location are not disclosed), CP graduates come to operate in 'their world' of Common Purpose. The term 'GRADUATE' is used deliberately so as to prevent disclosure of involvement with Common Purpose. As 'MEMBERS' of CP, which is more appropriate, individuals in the public sector would have to declare their interests. So strong is the Common Purpose bond, that some individuals will lie to hide information and documents considered 'dangerous' to the CP cause. People challenging CP colleagues have been victimised and forced out of their positions. Common Purpose is linked to a host of other suspect trusts, foundations, think-tanks, quangos and so called charities. DEMOS is a key example. These organisations funnel political and social CHANGE policy through CP, to re-frame graduates. Examples range from promotion of Diversity in every company and organisation, to Curfews for young people. Common Purpose promotes the 'empowerment of individuals', except where individuals challenge the activities of CP, and public spending on CP. These people are branded vexatious, extremist, right wing or mentally unsound. Mrs Julia Middleton, the Chief Executive of Common Purpose, praises the work of German bankers. Deutsche Bank is, of course, a major power behind Common Purpose. Mrs Middleton, earning circa £80,000 p.a. from her charity, is also very happy to promote the term 'USEFUL IDIOTS' in her book 'Beyond Authority' Supported by a web of organisations, social enterprises, NGOs, charities and others promoting 'leadership' together with empowerment through applied behavioural psychology. The battle for our minds now includes government Nudging, Happiness and Mindfulness delivered in the covert drip drip drip of an anaesthetic. https://www.cpexposed.com/

  5. making money with silver coins

    I think we have all made mistakes in the early days. " Ooooooooooohhhhhhh look BullionByPost's fancy web site is No1 in Googles results, lets buy there " {hands up who hasn't done this !} Research and reading is worth the time involved in your deal, then buy in baby steps while you find your feet. The search function is very helpful here, also check out the FAQs of the major bullion dealers, this is very helpful Your newbie query you may have, will probably have been asked and answered here before. As a whole here on the forum we are generally mostly all helpful, not selfish, look out for each other, share good deals and their locations Anyone with a few hundred posts here and similar liked content, you can safely say they know their precious metals and content is Welcome @pinder325
  6. Sorry for the click bait thread title I found this YouTube vid on my internet travels today & thought it was very cool so thought I would share. Someone bought an historic old bank and converted it to a home It would make a great airBNB for a seasoned stacker I think "Honey, little help please, I locked myself in the bar again " Enjoy folks

    They are going to lose a fair bit of custom from folk here who are shall we say, overly frugal. If it aint broke, don't fix it The "+3% on most items" business model was my key reason for repeat buying. No need to do the mental gymnastics and calculations

  13. Ebay - paypal

    as with anything they kill the golden goose, the small time seller is shunned in favour of big business. ebay is slowly dieing its own death. one of the reasons this forum came about as a result of ebay's greed and the dozens of trading/collectors groups in social media. as an ebay powerseller i had this email from them earlier today regarding the paypal split and the future Dear *************, eBay is happy to announce plans to further improve the customer experience by intermediating payments on our Marketplace platform. In doing so, eBay will manage the payments flow, simplifying the end-to-end experience for both buyers and sellers. We have signed an agreement with Adyen, a leading global payments processor, to become our primary payments processing partner. PayPal, a long-time eBay partner, will be a payments option at checkout for eBay buyers. You do not need to take any action at this time. The transition to full payments intermediation will be a multi-year journey. Over the past three years, eBay has transformed its business to drive the best choice, most relevance and most powerful selling platform. Building out our payments capabilities is the next step in that strategy. Payments intermediation will bring significant benefits for eBay sellers. You can expect a simplified pricing structure, more predictable access to funds, and most sellers can expect their costs of payments processing to be reduced. We’re also working on ways to provide sellers a central place to track and manage their business, which can soon include payments information. By offering buyers more choice in how they pay and expanding payment options into more geographies, eBay believes sellers will be able to reach more buyers and improve conversion. The transition to full payments intermediation will be a multi-year journey. eBay will begin intermediation on a small scale in North America starting in the second half of 2018, expanding in 2019 under the terms of the Operating Agreement with PayPal. In 2021, we expect to have transitioned a majority of Marketplace customers to the new payments experience. Again, you do not need to take any action at this time. As eBay gets closer to the initial phase of its intermediation efforts, we will share more details about this process and next steps for sellers. In the meantime, please read the eBay Inc announcement for further information. For any immediate questions or to share feedback, please email paymentsinfouk@ebay.com. We’re looking forward to what’s next, and to getting there with you. As always, thank you for selling on eBay. Kris Beyens, VP & COO eBay EMEA
  14. For me, It is psychologically so much better sending through x52 small fixed weekly standing order payments than the big lump sums of Jan and July in years gone by 31st Jan now comes and goes like any another day, without any of the stresses
