have the people respond to your ad? Do you have them email you using the Craigslist anonymous email or do you put your phone number in your ad? I seem to have a lot of people email that they are interested, yet when I email back with my phone number, they email back with that crazy phony baloney about sending a certified check. Do you meet people to exchange your stuff for their money, or do you have them come to your house? I want to sell some toys/clothes at $2-10 and it seems strange to set up an appointment to make 2 dollars. So what do you do?
I always list my phone number just to speed up communication. It is entirely up to you, though, whether you feel comfortable doing that. As far as picking up stuff, I usually have people come to my house-but only if DBF will be home as a general rule. I have had people come during the day, but only if I knew that they were moms with children, school teachers etc. If it was a guy, then never without DBF being home (no offense to the guys on the boards.) I try to bundle items that are similar to make it worth people's time to come over. Good luck!
Do you have any consignment sales/stores in your area? Craigslist makes me nervous and I would struggle with having people come to my home or going to someone elses. I have only sold on ebay, but the items were obviously selling for a little more than a couple of dollars.
I use my phone number and I require Paypal or cash only. DH and I will
meet people at a mall parking lot because I don't want anyone coming to
our house. I do this also with my eBay auctions that are local/pick up only.
With Paypal the payment must clear before I meet with them.
As for toys, if they are smaller pieces I would sell them in a bundle. I also
agree with the consignment stores/sales. I sell tons there and since my DD
is still little, I also buy some of her clothes and toys there also. Great deals
depending on what you are looking for.
I always put a phone number and avoid the email because that will most likely detour any scammers....for what you are trying to sell though, you might think of using Craigs list to advertise a yardsale instead of making little $2.00 appointments....we have a truck for sale out there right now and we have it advertised for contacting our phone number.
