Curious about this. Also, I've often seen "sale pending" attached to an ad before I've even seen the ad.

Deal could still fall through but for the moment the seller has committed to the buyer. Hence, Sale Pending.

Generally an item price is agreed upon by buyer and seller and the seller has agreed to hold pending payment. Sometimes something comes up and the sale doesn't happen so the pending lets others know it's spoken for but not sold yet. On rare items that come up the items must last minutes before the ad is changed to pending....
Hope at helps!

I usually do this when I'm shipping something or delivering so the buyer knows it's not a scam. Also, if they are picking it up, so the potential buyer and other potential buyers know that it is pending to them or something before them. I do this on most ads either because I have multiple offers and have established a queue with potential buyers or so the buyer, if payment has been transferred, knows it's on the way and leaves the ad up for easy feedback as soon as they receive it.

Thank you, that explains it thoroughly. I only see it on occasion, and never saw it on anything that I bought, probably because I paid the moment I committed.

No, it's just that I scan on an hourly basis (sometimes more) and usually pick up on everything. Some are just faster I guess!

... and you would have much more spare time to scan the classifieds at work.

Like most things on CAM........... you folk have NO idea at all. I'd suggest that you all take a ride on the Fed train for a year or two to find out the truth!! I did about ten years...........and it wasn't a picnic. I also don't think that 10% of the "B&C" (**** and complain) crowd could follow me through the rest of my career.

Come on guys, that is not fair. I am a Federal civil servant and due to my work I am frequently away from home on ships or working in remote locations for long periods of time. Six weeks is not uncommon, and this is often without any reliable communication link to home. Usually resulting in a 5 min sat phone call once a week. Missing a kids birthday or Wedding anniversary due to being away is much more serious than missing out on a CAM deal. Please give a thought to those who work hard for our Country and are not in the limelight , but do keep us all safe at night.
My 2 cents worth.

All you have to do is read the ad count.
If it's more than one, others have seen it and may have made an offer. That offer may have been accepted. If the sale is pending, I think that the fact it's listed as such is a sign of a good seller.
