Meeting people for selling low value items can be very time consuming and expensive

One of the problems selling on online classifieds in Goa, is that most people wish to meet personally and discuss the matter before making payment. However most people do not wish to meet strangers in their home, especially if one person is a woman.
So they have to meet at some other place.
Each of the persons in the meeting will have to spend time and often money to visit the place.
Travelling is expensive, even if the person has his own vehicle, diesel cost or is using low cost transport like buses.
So for a low value item costing Rs 100 or less , it is not feasible to meet the customer personally for making the sale, because time and money will be wasted. However buyers on classified websites in goa do not realize the problem, and insist on meeting.
