    I have a few photo paper selling in ebay, but I do not know if I should cancel the selling due to the low bids and try to sell again separatly. I also do not know how much may the papers wort.

    The apper is from a old lab, that gived away place for anthropologic reschearch in the university department. I took it to sell and give the money for materials that the students needs during the investigations.

    Dear Rhodes,

    I can't speak for others, but I don't like to pay much for open boxes of photo paper. Good luck with your efforts.

    That doesn't look like fair play to me, sorry.

    On the other hand, how old is the paper? Maybe you can update the auction with the paper date so it becomes a more interesting buy.

    You should test the paper if you really want to sell it and stand behind it. If you don't test at least the first and last sheet in every box then you should assume it's suspect paper- bidders will assume the same and rightly so.
