Ebay as an online market platform provides us a marketing experience that is as easy as a snap. You can sell what you like, and you could buy what you want. Moreover, as everyone's free to post, even the celebrities or what can we call 'business tycoons' from companies like Apple, Microsoft, Canon, Lego, Red Bull, and the likes can participate. Alongside this freedom, there is a chance where users tend to abuse or take the site for granted. They post unnecessary items for sale, and they make fun of things as if the market will consider them. Even the most trivial items are not safe from this weird act. In short, people sell weird stuff and it should not be the case.
Well, no matter how enraged this post can be, nothing can stop people from selling weird items on Ebay, just like the examples below:
No matter how firm you are about ghosts as bogus elements, there are still some people whose attention are caught when somebody tells them about it. What's even worse, it's sold successfully on eBay. Look at this ghost jar tinted with red and black, enclosed by a century-old cap. At $50,922, a buyer disclosed this.
Her product was not that different from a prostitute. But I think that it can be understandable at some point, at least with her intention of sustaining her academic needs and requirements. This 18-year-old women's gem was sold to an engineer at £8400.
Desperate but wise, this is how the buyer could be described as. He sold the 'air' he captured exclusively from an Equestrian event in London with a starting bid of £1.99. The buyer's post also indicates that he can prove though his admission ticket that he was there to get air--and of course, watch the event.
Sold at $25,000, this infrastructure can be found in Kansas. It is actually a man-made town filled with creepy and alien-y ambiance. Aside from your cowboy saloon, houses, commercial spaces and the likes, there are replicas of 'aliens' riding the car, or roaming around the town.
Alright! Seems this item used by our 1D star is competing for Britney Spears' hair or Michael Jackson's vertigo skin. But seriously, this item post is real. The toast was sold at a starting bid amounting to £65,000, and it almost reached $100,000. Crazy! Who could eat that piece of toast after more than a year? Hell guys, you could have supported an uneducated kid for a bid that high!
Another crazy thing you might have known in the history of Ebay marketing is selling an 'imaginary friend'. This post was initiated by Jon Malipieman, and surprisingly, the item got through about 31 bids. It was sold, yeah, for almost $3000. Damn, right?
