I’ve had an ecrater store for a while now–see it over there on the left side of the page? Ecrater is a free service that allows you to sell your items in your own online store. Overall, I have been pleased with ecrater’s ease of use–and it’s tough to beat the price! I’ve had some success selling items with ecrater, but they certainly tend to hang around for a while (mainly due to my lack of promoting them).
I had a Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull playset, with its original box, up in my ecrater store for two months at $75.00, which I thought was a pretty good price since I was looking for a quick sale. Unfortunately, the castle just wasn’t moving.
I got tired of tripping over the large box, and decided to list it on eBay with a starting price of $19.99 and no reserve. Within a day, the price had risen over $80. After the week-long auction ended, the final price ended up at $152.50–twice as much as I had been asking on ecrater.
Regardless of what you might think of eBay and its fees, it certainly has the biggest reach. I’ll still use ecrater for smaller items that I don’t mind sitting on the shelf for a while, but eBay is clearly the best option for selling items fast and you might be surprised with the final selling price!
