How to sell online?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'd like to sell a guntou online, but I couldn't post it on e-bay due to their policy on weapons (wtf when I see so many on e-bay?!). Anyway, could someone recommend me an internet site where I could post a classidied ad?

 

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

As Brian said, you should sell it here. You will fetch a far better price and get it to someone who will genuinely care for it!

Thank you all for your answers. I thought it was prohibited to sell swords on that site, hence I didn't do it directly.

 

Nice to hear again from you Bruce. We had some mail exchanges regarding Mantetsu-tou some time before, remember?

 

I changed my username and used directly my real one. Sorry for not doing it earlier. I thought pseudos would be ok.

Pseudos are fine. Just go into your NMB profile, & post your first name -  just have to do it once that way.

 

Welcome anyway.

Raphael,

Yes, I remember that we chatted. Welcome!

 

As to your question - in your location I don't know what's available. Do you have Craigslist? It's free. There are new competitors to ebay popping up. Here is an article about their 10 best online sales sites: https://www.oberlo.com/blog/online-selling-sites

 

Auction houses also sell on commission. I haven't looked into it, but I think they all charge about 20%.

 

Warning: If you do try Craigslist, be ready for the scammers to hit almost instantly. The usual scheme is: "I'll pay your asking price. Please remove the item for sale. I will send and check to you, with an added amount. The extra is to pay my delivery man who will pick up the item." So the forged bank check arrives, you cash it, he all of a sudden lost his delivery guy and wants you to mail the extra cash back to him (he couldn't care less about the sword). 3 weeks later the check bounces as a forgery and your bank wants their cash back.
