SLA Garage Sale

Postby Zania Jaarda » Fri Apr 01, 2011 8:40 pm

Spring is already here, and that means spring cleaning! Spring cleaning often results in finding things that you no longer need, and either tossing them out, donating them, or . . . selling it at garage sales once the weather gets better.

Well, you don’t have to wait for the weather to get better for the SLA Garage Sale, which will run through the end of May!

Here is how this idea will work:

    1) Find items around your house that you want to get rid of
    2) Determine the cost for packaging (boxes and other material), and shipping
    3) Take pictures (if you can), and list your item on eBay to sell
    4) If you are listing an item, post it in this forum thread so everyone can see what you're selling in case they want to buy it
    5) If anyone bids on and wins your auction, then:
    a. You collect the funds, as you would with any eBay auction
    b. You ship the item to the directly winner
    c. You keep the cost for the packaging and shipping (to recoup your costs)
    d. You donate the amount that the item sold for to our Paypal account (finance@slasims.com)

You’re the one handling all of the transactions, with no middle men at all! No need to ship it to someone else to list it on eBay for you.

Remember, your donation will help to pay for our fees with our web hosting company and domain renewals, which will keep our site live and going . . . hopefully for many years to come with all of your help!

If you have any questions, please contact Zania at zania@slasims.com

Do we have to go through eBay? As they charge a fee to list items sold or not.

eBay is by far the most popular, where people would be more likely to actually buy and sell things via auctions, hence why that site was suggested. Yes, there is a fee for listing the item, but if the item does not sell then you can re-list it for free. The cost for listing the item could also be included within the shipping/handling.

If you know of other sites that are just as popular and would likely result in some sales, without the listing fee, by all means please share them. :-)
