Pack Rat Post Informative - Ebay Alternative
Pack Rat Post seems to be another alternative to Ebay. It must be a fairly new site and I just happened to find it on accident, and there doesn't' seem to be many members yet. I figured I'd give it a shot...and much to my surprise I was impressed. I've listed 4 different items and one sold within 2 weeks. I didn't have to pay any posting fees...they only charge a subscription fee of 2.99/month and you can post as many items as you want. Ebay would have charged me 3 times that amount just to post my items and then take a cut of what I sold the item for. I really think this site is going to be good. It's not a niche site like Etsy, but Pack Rat Post has included a selection for "Homemade" items when listing the condition of your item. And you can upload 5 images of the item you are trying to sell for each and every item. They are really giving a lot for 2.99 per month. Well worth it to me!
Looks promising, I just wish more people were aware of this site so I can sell my other items. Oh yeah...they have an option for local pickup only items for people who use Craigslist. Pack Rat Post has pretty much thought of everything and allow people to collect money thru PayPal before giving out their home address. I'm sure that will prevent all those posting people have listed as PUP (pending pick up). Fun stuff! Check it out...and find my items...got a TV, a VCR, and a satellite internet system waiting for a buyer!
