PG is great market place for Pakistani buyers and Sellers. But for last some months I am seeing a new problem or more politely saying issue.
1. Premium Sellers vs Market Prices
This is a serious concern for all PG members specially buyers who rely on shipping and indirect dealing. The fact that most of the stuff is imported and there is actually no proof of at what price it should be sold. I would suggest a Pricing System on PG where buyers can make sure they are paying the right price and not being ripped off.
2. Members Claiming the real Prices in Market
This is rather interesting, many members on PG are claiming that the real prices of hardware (LCDs?) is far less in the market than being sold on PG by Premium and Regular sellers alike. But so far there has been no proof by anyone and all of them fail to justify the source. I would suggest all concerned members to tell their source and place so that people who bought on PG shouldn't go through agony of being ripped off.
3. People who can afford high end stuff
Everyone knows who am I talking about. Many members are mashallah able to afford costly hardware, but what I am seeing now is they buy hardware from PG (See Point 2) and then come whining about that the real prices aren't these or they have been ripped off. I don't understand, If they can afford new hardware (Costly GPUs? and LCDs?) Than what makes them buy from rip off when they know the actual prices. This point needs to be clarified.
4. Brutal Opinions and Senseless discussions
Those who claim the real prices have virtually no proof and yet forums are full of stories and experiences. If one out of 10 buyers have a problem with something they bought, they literally make other people's live a living hell buy telling stories etc and any one who reads them can't stop worrying about their own hardware for days.
Common sense is totally missing from PG I must say. You are buying at your own risk, you know the product is not new, you deal with seller or buyer taking all constraints into account and than you come whining about prices. Either take responsibility for your deals or simply STFU [Sorry for being rude]. People have more problems in their lives than starting to worry about non existent issues just because someone decided to take a look at forums, we are already very depressed nation and in agony due to loadshedding.
I need a solid feedback on this from Mods as well as fellow members. Remember this thread is no place for stories.
