If people want to sell online, shouldn't they be willing to deliver?

I saw an item for sale on a regional online selling site. I inquired about it and asked if the seller would bring it to me. He/she refused replying that if I want it I have to come to them. Why should I have to make a 60 mile round trip and then find out it was not to my liking or had a defect. I say if they want to sell, they should be willing to deliver.

    Not everyone can afford to deliver.  If delivery is important to you, I suggest you consider that when you price-hunt.

    Yes but it is case to case basis. If the seller is near to the client then He/she will deliver it but if the seller live miles away from the client then they must need a courier and both parties must agree.

    Bull crap. Sellers who place goods on line are doing exactly what online sales are supposed to do--selling,  Sales do not automatically include delivery.

    Sometimes the postage for items costs nearly as much the selling price, especially low cost bulky items. Self delivery costs even more unless you are in the same town. 

    At least you read the ad and enquired before buying.

    I sold an item 6 times ( and refunded  6 times) on a collection only item despite extremely long and clear explanation that it was collection only .

    Because there are other sellers who do not have PRIME.

    And why should a seller make a 60 mile round trip just so you can see if you like it? WADA!

    No, if you want it come and get it.

    "Why should I have to make a 60 mile round trip and then find out it was not to my liking"    You don't have to.    You can shop elsewhere.

     "I say if they want to sell, they should be willing to deliver."   You're not asking them to deliver.   You're asking them to bring the item to you to decide whether you want to buy it or not.When you order clothes from Target, do they bring the entire jeans section so you can decide if you want to buy or not?    No. 

    No stores or sellers are obligated to deliver.   You decide where you want to shop.

    The realities of the real world do not require them to deliver it to you.  If you want it,  go get it.

    People who want products delivered need to be willing to pay delivery charge.  Go there in person ifyou want to check it out first.  60 mile round trip?  I commute longer to work than that every day!
