I don't know if I use the right English verb, in Dutch we call it 'afdingen' or 'pingelen'
Do you do that on eBay? Contact the seller and try to get the price down? I don't do that after a auction, then I'll decide the price for myself, but I'll try it at 'Buy it Now' offers often. In December I was able to buy (from one seller) a Genjinth, TamaOtch and a Mothra, all NIP, for 95 dollar including shipment to Holland. The price on eBay was 135 dollar all together. I was very happy I managed that
I am curious this is a typcal Dutch thing to do, or if others do it as well. Or do you think it's inappropriate? Some Japanese sellers seem to be overwhelmed if I do so and don't participate of even answer my offer, but a lot of them agree with it.
