I did not. I wouldn’t pay this much for one. The Unsaver just isn’t one I have to have although it would be nice.

Lol, I meant as in new product. I don't remember seeing those cases there before. I don't care for one, but I figure someone else does.

I pm'd Wobbled for a small batch a couple years ago and the biggest expense was shipping from the UK to the US.

You can place a new order with JLCPC, it should cost less than 10 euros for about 50 pcs including shipping.

Focus fk-3001 solar cell calculator.
Who bought it? ending early the auction I was following with eager? It's not fairplay, but it's part of the game. I was curious to know which kind of Alps it mounted, since it was clear that the seller did not understand a h, selling it at so 'reasonable' price, nowadays the keyboard prices are all on the rise....

Ebay gives a seller multiple options for sale options. One of the more recent ones is a "make offer" in the bid scenario.

I never really understood that, but I also never understood "reserve" either. It does make some sense to have a "buy it now" on top of a bid auction, so that a person who really wants it can get a sure thing, but that is rather useless unless there is a significant difference between the 2 prices. And having the "buy it now" go away as soon as the first bid comes basically short-circuits the whole process, doesn't it? I have tried to figure these things out for years, and still don't get it.

Personally, I always use either straight "bid" or "buy it now" without any other choices, it seems to me those are the only paths that are fair and straightforward.

Yes, i agree with your considerations. The make offer option is available when a user is watching your item and by the sales menu you can invite to purchase the object making a discounted sale. I don't think, the Italian localisation of eBay allows to make straight offer, or maybe is an option limited to pro sellers. Who knows.
Getting back to what happened to my fk-3001 listing, I think the auction was free to be closed due to the absence of active bidders, so the ebayer was privately contacted from someone who placed an order by message, inviting him to accept it and to close the auction itself. Next time I'll always put a bid on something interesting in order to avoid that, but losing any possibility to make a good deal on last second
