    Should i use Proactive Consignment Outpost - www.proactiveconsignmentoutpost.com - on eBay or on Craigslist?

    I am trying to sell some of my stuff through Proactive Consignment Outpost www.proactiveconsignmentoutpost.com and I see they sell your items on eBay and Craigslist. Which is the most convenient and cheapest market? I don't have a lot of experience with this service so I guess the smartest thing to do is ask first, right?

    What do you all think?

    Well Craigslist is free and you can sell local...on Craigslist you need to take into account that you will need to make time to meet potential interested parties, but you can sell quicker if someone is interested. The thing with Craigslist is if you ask them to contact you via email you will get a ton of spam and false Craigslist emails asking to verify your account. eBay is great if you are familiar with the ins and outs of it. There are fees and they have become outrageous, but I still manage to make money, so don't be quick to rule it out. Again eBay is something you want to buy on for awhile and then start selling so you get the basic idea of it. All in all both have flaws but both are equal. With Craigslist and eBay you will sell for cheap but it all comes down to how much you are wanting to make, full price Craigslist but expect some aggravation and waiting with it... Let Proactive Consignment Outpost chose where to sell your items and make sure you set a selling price before!

    The advantage of using Proactive Consignment Outpost on eBay is that there are less charges and it's cheap. The advantage of using Proactive Consignment Outpost on Craigslist is that the customer is unlikely to return the items, but higher charges. According to your specifications, eBay would suit you best.

    My advice would be to use Craigslist because you can setup an account for free, and unlike eBay, they do not charge you to put an ad up. Hope this helps... Also, you can compare the fees that Proactive Consignment Outpost will charge you for selling on both marketplaces.

    I believe Craigslist is best because the listing is faster and there are no listing fees. If you are going to sell a lot of stuff, you will be able to get a higher price and if you are using Proactive Consignment Outpost it`s better because they practically do all the work for you...
    Also, It depends on how fast you need them to go. Maybe you can get a higher price as an auction, but if you need them to go fast, then Craigslist would definitely do a better job. PCO are swift when it comes to delivery times for both Craigslist and eBay!

    eBay is a waste of time, unless you're selling your products for rock bottom prices. I mean ROCK BOTTOM, but then the cost of shipping and eBay fees eat up that little bit of profit. Craigslist is free, but it's home to even cheaper people than eBay. People on Craigslist tend to expect to get items for free and they often flake out a lot (no shows).

    Use both. You might get a better deal on one then the other.

    I recommend using Proactive Consignment Outpost services and I say Craigslist because they are cheaper, there are no listing fees and you have more advantages selling on Craigslist. If you can include the shipping fees in the price of sale then you can use Craigslist... eBay is and always has been expensive.

    I agree I've purchased a whole bunch of items from eBay and Craigslist through proactiveconsignmentoutpost.com.com : Michael Jordan's signed shoes, Michael Jordan signed Wilson XLT-3800 NBA basketball, my laptop, a guitar and so on.... Totally recommend Proactive Consignment Outpost!

    I checked them out and after some calculations I guess Craigslist is the marketplace I'm interested in. Will let Proactive Consignment Outpost know my price range and I hope this marketplace is the best.

    Thanks again!
