Take a look at this listing

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131831791626

Is it clear that I am selling keys?

It says that I have made eleven sales, so you may wonder why I'm only showing six keys sold.

The answer is simple:
  • One buyer who wanted five keys
  • One buyer who wanted a single key
  • One buyer who wanted the screws that hold the keyboard together
  • Seven people who thought I was selling a Mac keyboard for a pound, and I've had to give refund
  • And one where I've received payment but have no idea which keys are wanted - I suspect it will end with another cancellation.
And this is why my ability to suffer fools gladly is probably at an all-time low...

It is .

If you read the description.

Which I would have said was an obvious and sensible thing that I would expect any buyer to do. But I've noticed that (not in this listing) but that when browsing with the Android app , the app seems it make it easier to skip the description.

I'm sort of aware of it now, but I've been lulled a couple time - luckily before I bid,so it might not be stupidity on the part of the buyer. So it is important to remember you data/pages may be presented to others in ways you not familiar with.

On the other hand stupidity doesn't seem to be short supply, so I'm not placing any bets. My one ebay sale took two attempts...

I've pulled the listing for now, decided to revise it considerably before posting again.
