    Hi at all, yesterday an user send me a message to share his invite.
    I accepted.. but ONLY the day before this person asked me 18€ like refund for this invite.

    My question is.... is it common ask for money? or the "philosophy" of invites is to share invite for free and not to recovery money, to "invite" people or friend to buy a new device

    It's like murder, it's not acceptable, nor advisable but sadly it happens often... The community generally frowns upon people who want financial compensation for a (free) invite.

    well.... it's a free market, so anyone can do whatever they want with an invite.
    If asking money is a friendly gesture...... not really.....

    But there are no sharable invites yet for the OPX, so you couldn't have use the invite anyway

    1 of my friends bought an invite to buy the phone. some people know people are willing to pay for an invite to get the phone, you see it on kijiji/craigslist all the time

    Yes, even a forum mod has done it, though he said it was to catch people buying though I don't believe him for a second. It's like believing Greg Hardy is innocent..

    I get a free invite form Event in Berlin and someone ask me what it will cost. I was really wondering why he give me money and give them for free.

    Fairly common. But the real loser is the one who pays for the invite. If there was no market, there would be no sellers.

    Selling invites is against the rules. Also, it could be a scam. I will send you a PM. Thread closed...
