    How do prices on ebay and WUS compare?

    My first post for a while, because I'm suffering from this credit crunch misery. So, having finally put together my modest collection, including all the models I really, REALLY wanted, I've got to sell the lot. So, where am I going to get the highest prices - WUS or ebay? I have good ebay feedback from buyers, but I have no references here at WUS - all I've ever done here is buy.

    Hard to say. With WUS you will have to name a price and then probably be tempted to lower it if you don't get any interest.

    Ebay obviously has a much larger buyer base and you may get lucky with auction. If you have a price in mind try WUS if you fancy a gamble try ebay.

    Watches are frickin evil!

    Will you be selling a lot of watches? I'd suggest listing them here on WUS for what you'd like to sell them for. Then drop the price if you don't get any offers or buyers down to the least you'd take them for. After that, put the watches that don't sell on ebay for the least you'd take for them, and let the auction run.

    I used to sell on ebay, but I found dealing with people here on the WUS was much easier. And you don't pay to sell here, like you do with ebay. To me as a member, your feedback as a buyer is as good as a seller (good feedback is good feedback).

    We're only talking about 8 watches (I think). Hardly going to rock the G-World to its foundations. I think you've persuaded me to start with WUS. Not that I want to. These are my babies! But I had a very shirty phone call from one of my creditors this morning. If only I could sell my body instead.

    Definitely give the WUS sales forum a try. I've only had good experiences so far, but only as a buyer. I think you'll have a much greater chance of dealing with scammers or other issues on eBay. Just make sure you post good photos and descriptions. I really appreciate it when sellers go above and beyond in pointing out any issues.

    I too would like to wish you a quick recovery. There are times I have nearly had to do the same thing. Actually, with gas prices the way they are, I had to sell some to get my motorcycle on the road, so I could afford to go to work .

    I'm sure there will be some of us that keep a 'watch' out for you on the sales side .

    Re: How do prices on ebay and WUS compare?

    Thanks for all the encouragement everyone. I won't mention what models I have as that would break the rules, but look out for some posts in the For Sale section soon. First I need to learn to take some decent close-up pics with my modest Ixus. All that effort and fiddling about just to do something which I will hate.

    Those who have PM'd me will get a sneak preview asap.

    Re: How do prices on ebay and WUS compare?

    One thing I learned about close-up shots is use the 'macro' mode of the camera (on "point-n-shoots" it looks like a tulip) and use natural daylight lighting when possible (in the shade, but during the day when it's bright). I used to take pics with an overhead light in the evening...and the shots looked very poor to what I can do now in my back yard.
