Guide to Yardsellr.com
A fairly new site, Yardsellr.com allows you to sell your items, as well as buy items from other users in the same sort of fashion as eBay, only there is a major plus that eBay doe not have is that its free to list and its free to sell, it’s the buyers who pay the fees. These fee’s are dependent on the item that is being sold, the high-priced the item is, the larger the fee or the “yardsellr slice” is.
There are different sections that items are grouped into. If you’re selling beads for example, they would put that in the beads block. There is an app on Facebook that allows you to like blocks, and it shows you what’s new in certain blocks as well as sales ect… ect…
Some things that you should know about this site is that the site itself accepts credit card payments as well as paypal payments, it also has its own currency called photons. Each new member is granted 5 photon gifts in which they can give to other users or add to items in their yard sale as an incentive for people to buy. If you would like more photon gifts you can buy them at $1 a piece, they are a gamble and can be worth less than you paid, as low as a few cents, to up to 50.00. Photons are great as they act as credits taking money off your purchase. Photons do not however cover shipping costs, or yardsellrs slice, so in the end you’re paying something no matter what albeit extremely discounted.
When you are not on yardsellr, your photons expire, dropping a little bit at a time, when you are online you can pause this so that while you look you don’t lose money, but on average you lose about 50 cents to 1.00 a day. For every day you log in however you are also granted photons, you can get more photons by buying items that have photon gift incentives, or looking for the $ on the site.
If you buy an item from someone who is new at listing on the site, you also automatically get a 5.00 photon credit, and you can further get credits by inviting friends and more if your friends join the site.
The only drawback at this time is this site is largely geared towards Americans, many people are more than happy to ship to Canada, but you have to watch if people say USA shipping only. If you’re unsure if a seller ships to Canada you can message them on the yardsellr site or through facebook as it allows you to do so.
As a seller on the site the main drawback especially for us Canadians and those who sell small items is you’re expected to provide a tracking number; if you do not do this, you will not get paid by yardsellr until the person who bought your item claims that they have received it. Take this into account when you calculate shipping as shipping to the states with tracking can get expensive.
When everything is said and done though, yardsellr is a great site and a great way to make a couple bucks on the side, or hunt for bargains, yet another reason to love opening up your mailbox.
