Maybe a typo, but maybe fishing for someone who has too much money or doesn't do their research.

That's been listed quite a few times with prices ranging from $5,000-$12,000........if he only sells a couple a year he's probably making quite a bit of money.

Typo? They usually go for 650.
Maybe they are out of stock or thining out the back orders. Many vendors up the price of goods to stop sales for a a while in order to catch up!

Thats a Kaymar in the picture...right down to the LED lights and naff method locking the jerry cans. I would hope his 'copy' has better powder coating to justify the price hike.

emailed him, there out of stock for 6 weeks, there $650, do that to keep the listing fees down, hence the price.

Well, there you go! Thanks for clearing that up ;)

Would be a pretty good deal for $650 I would say.

hey? Ive sold 100's of things on Ebay, and its actually the opposite. You pay more for a buy it now price and more for the higher the buy it now price...and it cost more for the higher the start bid, soooooo his explanation doesnt really add up to me.

Also as a seller you pay a higher % of fee the higher it sells for.So who in their right mind would bung $8,800 as a buy it now price to pay something like 500 bucks in fees "if" someone did click the buy it now price?

Yowser the seller must be a special kind of stupid

Unless it was built for a specific person, and they don't really complete the checkout.

Or instructions in the listing direct you to contact them directly for 'BIG discount you love us longtime!'

each time you create a listing it costs you money regardless if its sold or not, as said alot of sellers do this especially companies, the listing stays up, not costing again to re-do, if someone hit buy now they would get a message explaining whats happening. In this case its a six week wait and there $650. At no cost to the seller..... cause no sale would go through. Its a good idea, not a special kind of stupid.
