Buying best practices

Know what you’re buying before you offer

Avoid frustration: Be sure to ask for details, such as size, condition, or possible defects.

Are you willing to see the deal through?

Before you offer, consider the seller's location, your commitment to the item, and whether you're available for an upcoming meetup.

Never give out your personal information

Keeping all communication within Chat ensures that your personal information stays safe, as well as serves as a record of your purchase and exchange.

Thoroughly inspect the item at meetup

All sales are final. Once you walk away with loot in-hand, that's your agreement that the item is as expected and at a fair price.

Be a considerate buyer

Sellers can add to your reputation within the community, so always be considerate of their time and effort.

Selling Best Practices

Present your item truthfully

If there’s a small imperfection, snap a photo for your potentialbuyers to consider.

Avoid flakey buyers

Users that frequently reschedule, or users that continue negotiating after you’ve accepted their offer are more likely to flake or change their mind.

Never give out your personal information

Keeping all communication within Chat ensures that your personal information stays safe, as well as serves as a record of your transaction and exchange.

Allow buyers time to inspect items at meetup

Take this opportunity to chat and create a lasting impression that will leave them wanting to purchase more from you in the future.

Be a considerate seller

Don’t lose patience with buyers that ask a lot of questions. Chances are that other users have similar questions and will see your thoughtful responses positively.
