Why "It's only 2 EC less than you're asking" doesn't get you discounts

"WTS 10M big notes 5 EC each!"
"I buy all for 3 each"

This happens. FAR too damn often.

Do people not understand that when you sell things in bulk, those two EC make a huge difference? Say I'm selling 100 of something. That's 200 EC. Say I'm selling one thousand. That's 2000 EC. 

3 EC is just above half of the asking price. That's the equivalent of asking someone if you can buy that tome for 1k EC or trade your clean cube neck for someone's DS. No. I can't sell you my 5 EC item for 3 each, and I can't sell you my 3 EC item for 2 each. It doesn't work like that!

I'm sorry, I just needed to vent about this with the constant begging going on in PMs in game.

"Nty" doesn't stop the same person from PMing you five minutes later and asking for the same thing.
"Nty" doesn't change the fact that five times more people ask for half your price than ask to buy your wares on a GOOD day
And you don't have to click or respond to this thread if you don't want to. I'm not wasting anyone's time, and I'm not forcing anyone to do anything.

Sadly, I would. The amount of people asking for discounts and lower prices is ridiculous everywhere. But trying to buy things for pretty much half price, in bulk is just incredible. 

Saying "Hey, I only have 4k for that Cube, would you like some other stuff with my EC for trade?" and backing off when you say no is different altogether. That's almost understandable. But "3.5k pls" is nuts. And "2 EC each pls" for notes (which I am asked to sell for on occasion) is just flat out nuts.

And when "a better deal" is a discount of 40-50% of your asking price, and everyone is asking for it, I don't think the entire "deal" thing applies. They may as well be looting my inventory, trying to buy Notes for 3 EC each. Yes, 50 EC off of something larger isn't as big a deal. I already said something like that.  It's good that people can barter. But my entire point is when people are asking for a few EC off of things that are only a couple EC anyway. It's annoying. Yes, you can block them, but the stream of people asking for half your price won't stop.

I didn't really even make this post to discuss things, I just wanted to vent a little and almost deleted it. I'm not asking for a GM to do anything, or anyone else. It's just frustrating. And I needed to say something about it or my head would've exploded.

You can always put "5 ec FIXED" or something on the lines of that
So people won't pm you "oh 3 ec each pls"
And I'm only stating this to help you not to argue xd

I've tried. It does reduce the amount of people asking for 3 EC, but people still don't seem to realize what "fixed" means. Or "current offer", but that's a different story for another day.

Thank you though. And I've been doing that more recently. As you can probably see in world chat the moment that I tab back into the client.
