Title: Shpock
Post by: Droitwich Baggie on November 25, 2018, 10:05:41 PM
Does anyone use this?
A couple of blokes, who I know, think it is the "bees knees" or the business...whichever you like to say.
At least it is free to advertise.

I have just sold 4 items which I just wanted rid of.
Made £45
Talked down (offered on all sales) but still got money in my pocket.
Note to myself..."Put up some old rope".  ???

I know it's the first place a lot people look when they have stuff nicked.

I suppose that could also be said about Gumtree and ebay.

I don't like it, I've sold online for years but hate the collection only stuff. Some of the time the people are fine and arrive on time, but too many times they never turn up and have stupid excuses.

I think it's almost like a mental problem for some of them, it's bizarre behaviour. I once had a woman make about 5 excuses about collecting a kids bike and in the end I ignored her, everytime there was something different which stopped her coming. It's as if some people get a kick from keeping you waiting at their expense.
