Tips for successful selling items online

As a seller you don`t need to take as many precautions as the buyer, however we do recommend you consider these things...

Safety First

  • If you are selling out of your own home, you are inviting the buyer inside. Are you sure about who the buyer is? You don`t always need to be, but if you become in doubt, see if you can find out.
  • If you are worried about inviting someone inside your house, you can meet at a safe public place and you can bring a friend.
  • If the buyer asks for a much lower price, or a much higher price, something shady might be going on.
  • Don't give away you credit card information to someone you don’t know who is.
  • Find another buyer for your things if, the goods must be send abroad, the buyer claims to have transferred too much money to you, or if the buyer's request seems odd
  • Dealry recommend that you use the verified payment services that you find on the classified ads sites. It might be Paypal or some other vendor. It could also be mobile payment from a bank app.
  • And finally a classic: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Sending Your Goods

  • Be sure to send it to the right address. Rather ask one more time to get the correct address, than sending it to the wrong.
  • Always send your items by packages, parcels, and not a letter – get a confirmation. This allows you to prove that the goods are send in the case of the package getting lost.
  • If a buyer offers a vastly reduced buying price or offers to pay more than you are asking for - be aware that they may be trying to con you.
