Are you asking me?I used to sell on craigslist all the time. The only problem was I was doing it when I needed to. This thread has inspired me to pick the hustle back up! Really cool that you're doing video games. I searched locally on craigslist and couldn't find much. Which could be good or bad. I have a question though: What's your process for meeting? I'm sure with video games the buyer would want to test it out, and I'm not too keen on having a bunch of people strangers come over. Any tips? Also, I may have overlooked this, but are you getting games off eBay as well? If so, have you gotten any duds?
BTW, have you ever bought/sold an authentic copy of Earthbound?
Woops, sorry about that. My eagerness caused me to overlook the reply/quote button. Good stuff, man. Very insightful! Put up a few things on Craigslist that I don't have a need for anymore. Looking at $700 tomorrow.Are you asking me?
I've not done much of this kind of thing in quite a while.
Occasionally people would come to my house to test games, otherwise they would at least know that they have my cell number so if it doesn't work they would have a way to reach me.
Generally though people just took me at my word. I personally tested everything before selling, so if someone would have (nobody ever did) claim that something was broken, I probably wouldn't have refunded them the money.
I bought laptops and things like that brand new on clearance from eBay, which turned out well. Never did buy video games, although if you have the money some people sell huge lots of games.
There is an app called Offer Up. It's just like Craigslist , but a lot easier to list things. I'll throw things on there as well to see if I can find someone to pick the item up before it sales on eBay.Yea, I do the same. Apple stuff goes straight to amazon, other items go to ebay. Nothing gets relisted on craigslist, unless it is musical gear, which I usually just list for a high price so I can keep it as a toy until someone ponies up the cash.

Yeah, what I'm selling is way less common than what he is offering as trade. There is no shortage for his item to say the least. I'll pass.do your research and make a deal. If the thing you are trading for is harder to sell, maybe pass, unless you are bankrolled enough to sit on the money to maximize profits. A good example- a few years ago some dude offered to trade me a pretty top line kirby vacuum cleaner for an iphone 4 I had. I took the trade. I sat on that god damn vacuum cleaner for 6 months before it finally sold. Lesson to learn- I could have had less money, but more space in my house if I had just sold the phone and moved on. When I did sell the kirby, it went on ebay, so I had to waste an hour of my life packing the thing up and taking it to the post office as well.
I'm a guitarist, I agree. Musicians are terrible to work with unless they're pretty big.I'm about ready to stop flipping music grear altogether. Even if I make a sale, it seems to always involve two trips by the buyer, one to test it, two to wait for them to get paid. Can't stand it. Unfortunately, Even worse, musicians always want to trade gear, and it is NEVER, EVER, EVER an interesting trade offer, let alone lucrative.
