Selling electronics


The electronics category is always bursting with action. A lot of people buy and sell electronics online and because of that it’s a great place to advertise your used phone or camera. We’ve put together a couple of tips to help you on your way when selling electronics on the site.
 
-  Always meet the buyer in person. This will save you some trouble in case someone decides they’re not happy with the item after they’ve received it.
 
-  Make sure the payment the buyer sent you has cleared with your bank before sending the item by post (if you absolutely can’t meet in person).
 
-  If you do meet in person, you’ll probably be paid in cash. Check the notes.
 
-  Some people will ask you to send the item abroad to a relative of theirs. They may sometimes even offer you more money than you’re asking for. Our advice is – don’t’ accept.
 
If you feel that someone is trying to scam you, report the messages you’re receiving to us so we can investigate.
