Yes, I sell regularly.
We are not allowed to sell electrical items at the Op Shop where I volunteer, so I bring home the electrical items, sell them, and give the money back to the op shop -great revenue raiser but a lot of work.
I have also sold some things privately over the years and find it one of the easiest to list on.
I use both Ebay and Gumtree.
As far as ease of use, Gumtree is far easier and quicker.
Also note, it is free which is always a bonus. Unlike ebay that charges 10% plus there are Paypal fees on top of that if you use that method of payment.
As far as sales go, honestly I find it pretty much the same for both sites.
It's a shame ebays popularity means it's not as good as it used to be.
None the less, I'm sure others will agree or disagree with my opinion...and that's the beauty of the internet :)
I bought two delightful puppies through Gumtree a few weeks ago. They were sold by a family who drove 3.5 hours to deliver them. They were a nice family and didn't appear to be running a puppy farm and have rung me several times to make sure the puppies have settled. I did find out afterwards that legally they should have had them microchipped and inoculated. I have now done this,
I have a female eclectic parrot for sale. Does ebay sell birds?
No, I've never bought or sold anything on line!
As I wright this in March '17, Gumtree sees to be in some sort of trouble, when the people who say they'll meet you somewhere, take your money from you & RUN. There was a news story about it, or may have been on the A.C.A programme, about a week ago.
