Which one should i go with i need to sell my bass bad any suggestions
Just post on both. What are you selling man?
Have you considered TalkBass classifieds?
Ante up $20 and sell it here. Sheesh.
eBay is nice
list is better IMO
eBay has too many fees for me. Craigslist or the TB classifieds is/are the way to go.
TB Classifieds first.
im not a member i am not aloud to it said
Become a member. It won't hurt...much
i am broke
TB Classifieds is the way to go.
beggin' your pardon sir, but if you're too broke for a talkbass membership, you are definitely too broke for ebay.
this thread shall meet a quick demise, methinks. later, ron
Pros: Larger "market" (i.e. the entire US - and other countries if you choose)
You can see buyer's feedback (not too important as a seller), but important if you're looking to only list one time and if you're going to ship.
You know when the item will no longer be for sale (i.e. set time frame)
You can use Pay Pal and have some "protection" (read the fine print)
Buyers are legally obligated to pay for what they've bid
Cons: Lots of fees
You'll most likely have to end up shipping the bass
If you don't have any feedback, you'll have a harder time selling (and might not get as much for it)
Setting up auction takes some time (especially if you've never set one up before)
You're advertising to a larger audience and increase your chances of getting scammed (seller beware)
Easy to set up an ad
You will most likely sell to someone locally
Can still use Pay Pal (but no seller "protection")
"Market" is smaller
Will get a lot of responses, and you'll reply, and will likely never hear from interested parties again (Craigslist users can be freaks - YMMV)
Have to take time out to meet someone to show them the bass
People will know where you live (if you choose to have them meet you at your house rather than a neutral location) - showing someone bass at your house can be dangerous as they can "case the joint" and come back later when you're not home and steal it (it happens)
No seller protection if things go "wrong" (take cash, and make sure it's legit)
I prefer using e-bay, because it advertises to a larger market... Worth the cost and effort usually. Depending on where you live, there may not be many interested parties in your particular bass. E-bay opens those doors to the "world".
TB Classifieds is a good route too!
