Title: Question on selling goods on here
Post by: film2240 on December 13, 2011, 03:46:36 PM
Hi
I'm a prospective seller finding a good easy platform to sell on.I've looked at eBay and they don't let me use anything but PayPal and related methods,I've used Amazon.co.uk but they don't let you sell items not in their catalogue without paying ~20 as a pro seller,I've yet to get the jist of using play.com to tell via their trade service.It seems that most services are either too complicated to use or have additional fees.

Is there a way I can use a reliable way of selling items via BTC or another method that's easy for UK based sellers?
How do I sell items on here?
What can I expect from the marketplace here when I trade?
What rules govern trade on here?
What about protections for the seller and buyer?
How can I build a reputation on here so users can get a better impression of me as a seller?

Thanks in advance for any tips you may have :-)

I can answer a couple..

There is a bitcoin WOT (Web of trust). for rep based ratings..  You'll have to search for a link..

And Escrow services available to protect both seller and buyer.. :)

Thanks teflone :-)

That answers the WOT and the Escrow service for protecting the buyer and seller.I guess that selling is as simple as making a listing on here or using another service that covers this in Bitcoins.

Lots of different things are posted here, people usually like to see a photo with a piece of paper in the photo with your name and date to show a little personalization of the photos of what your selling..  (if physical)

WOT is a bit hard to use, I never bothered.. they need to make it simpler, because I cant be bothered to spend hours to figure it out.
