I wasn't sure if I should post this here or on the General Scrappin' board so I apologize if this isn't the right place.
I have acquired way too much stuff over the years and I need to do a major purge. I can't even think about creating anything because I'm so overwhelmed with stuff. Problem is, I've never sold any scrappy stuff publicly before. In fact, other than a few yard sales I've held and one transaction on Craig's List, I've never sold anything publicly. I don't even have a FB account. (Don't want one.) I'm a great buyer though!
As a new seller, how would I go about getting people to buy from me if I don't have any feedback anywhere? Any advice from you sellers is appreciated! Thanks!

|Posted: 1/4/2013 5:17:16 PM|I have been buying and selling, OKAY (mostly buying and a little selling ) here over the last couple months. I haven't checked the good seller list on any of the peas that I have had transactions with and I have not had a bad experience yet.
When selling I make sure to include in the listing the price including an estimated shipping, where I am willing to ship to, whether tracking is included, how I will accept payment (PayPal is the most popular choice) and whether they should peamail or reply to the post.
Once the item is paid for, I mark it sold in the listing. Once the item is shipped I notify the buyer of the tracking number. Usually when the buyer receives the item they peamail that they got it.
Hope this helps!

I'm excited to see what you have to sell, Rachel! I'm new at all of the papercrafting, so I'm slowly building my stash!

Sell individual items which makes the risk small. Looking forward to what you are selling.

|Posted: 1/6/2013 3:48:05 PM|I agree with revirdsuba, people are more likely to buy with small sales than a huge sale. Especially with no feedback. I once really wanted to buy something on here but couldn't risk $100 in case the person flaked out OR she only showed me the GOOD part of the lot and the rest stunk!
Also, many of us have tons of stuff and a big lot will usually have WAY too many duplicates to be worth it for us.
That reminds me, I need to update the Best/Bad Sellers list sometime today...
