You are welcome. It cost me only 5 minutes of my time and if it helps someone then that will be my reward! Smiley

++ HOW TO SELL ITEMS ++

A few tips that will make your items much more likely to sell:-

1. State the LOCATION (nearest town and municipality). If possible include this in the Subject line, too.
2. List each item with a complete description and price.
3. Upload good quality photos* of items and include links to them.
4. Include contact details, if you wish, but omit anything you don't want the whole world to see.
5. State whether/how far you will deliver and cost. (If you can arrange delivery of large items, a sale is much more likely.)
6. Come back at least once per day to check for questions/offers. People hate to be kept waiting.
7. Mark each item SOLD as soon as possible after sale.
8. Delete post when all items are gone.

(I've been selling via mail order for many years so I thought my experience might prove useful to someone. Getting it right can make the difference between making a sale or not, and getting a good price or a poor one. Most people can't be bothered to enquire if they are not actively looking for the item you are selling, so you'll lose all potential impulse purchases. Even if they are looking, they won't contact you without seeing a photo and accurate description that confirms you have what they want.)

Please post again when you have found what you want or given up so that we can delete or archive your advert.

You may "bump" an advert no more than once per week. Bumping (adding a comment such as "still for sale") is helpful because it moves your advert back to the top and allows "stale" adverts to drift to the bottom.

Note: NO adverts for property or land or items over €5000 asking price, please.

Note: When you post a "For Sale" advert, please include "I have read the selling suggestions" otherwise I might direct you back here to read them if I think you missed information that might help your item(s) to sell.
