Yes, I was surprised myself but I guess it was due to Corona madness. Now that they closed borders for Great Britain I wonder if at least the mail will be delivered or could be received. I stopped all Ebay seller activities too as too many crap got returned due to Corona. Not a good time for people who wanna sell worldwide.

bids on ebay usually last minute and sells on discogs 4-5 times higher!
lixx ep for instance he bought 20usd and sells it for 77 euro - avoid!
It's the same seller. He sells on ebay and Discogs..great seller to deal with!

True, but on the other side you can have good deals too as people don't always take the risk to buy now. If you have patience for your packages to arrive..it could be ok. I have a pakcage stuck in the UK now too..but if borders will open, all will be ok.
As a seller it's not a good time now i think if you want top money for it. That EZRA is indeed insane...got mine for about 20USD a few years ago.

The whole corona crisis was a big disappointment collector-wise. I was expecting plenty of people to go bankrupt and have to sell their rare records fast and for cheap. Instead they got support from the government and stayed home and bought more records and prices kept going up. If even economic crisis can't keep their promises where is this world going!!!

That's not really true in every case. Many record shops had to close and only keep selling at Discogs therefore. I made some great deals there by offering prices with a discount of up to $ 50 sometimes on the usually expensive records. But basically they need to sell their records as their daily customers are all gone at the moment, so besides having the shop closed and earning no money at all, they rather accept discounts from $ 25-50 just to sell at least something. I made some great deals during Corona as buyer, but as seller I had only trouble with postage being paid twice because every second parcel got returned due to "country closed borders for european mail/goods" etc.
