    Is there much difference? Where's the line?

    Is finding a deal with the intention to flip wrong? If not, is flipping for 25% profit wrong? If not, is 100% profit? 200%?

    Or is the difference all of the verbiage about 'Rare!' and discontinued and Gen1, blah blah?

    Exactly my question.
    Not judging, merely observing but certainly eyebrow-raising.
    Maybe that is what the area in-between flipping and scalping is called.

    Ehh I don't think id call it either. I kinda poked around that users feedback history and most of the time it doesn't look like hes making a killing on a lot of this stuff. There is a profit for sure, id call it re-representation of an item that wasn't listed all that well.

    There are worst things than a flipper or scalper and that's a scammer. I think we should be more concerned with people who do that. Times are tough and I don't blame a person for selling over priced items. Designer eyewear is a luxury not a necessity. If you have a problem with the price I always say don't buy it.

    If you make a living off buying stuff on ebay cheap and selling it for more money... that's your job. I can't really find a fault in that. If you collect Oakleys and find a really good deal and want to sell it right away, use an auction format. Then nobody can complain at the selling price.

    I bought a 24k XX on ebay for $100. When it arrived, it was in better condition than the one I already owned. So I sold my old 24k XX on here. It sold for more than the new one cost me, but less than I bought it on here for originally. I don't see anything wrong with that. If I'd immediately listed the new one for $550 on here, I'd think I was in this for the wrong reasons.

    I've followed kblis auctions before, and reached the decision that I have no intention of every buying something from him.
