How do I sell an item on MrBuyGuy?

 You must  Register with MrBuyGuy before you can start selling. Once you're registered and have logged in, you can start selling by clicking on the Sell  at the top of the page.

 

This will take you to the item category page.

You will be asked to select a category for your item. Once you select the main category, you will see an option to  select a sub-categories and, in some cases,  a sub-sub-category.   If you would like to add a second category, you can do this for an additional fee by ticking 'Add a Second Category'.

After you've chosen your category, click 'Save and Continue'.

Now you will be asked to select your auction type. You can choose from one of three types.

Select 'General Listing' to auction off your item. Members will be able to bid on the item. If you like, you can set a reserve price for that auction. If you set a reserve price, the item cannot be sold at less than the reserve.

Select 'Instant Buy' to sell your item at a fixed price. A buyer can purchase the item immediately by clicking 'Buy Now'. The instant buy feature allows you to sell your item for a fixed price. The member can purchase the item at any time by simply clicking buy now.

If you place a 'Classified Ad', buyers can contact you directly via MrBuyGuy.com. You and the buyer negotiate the price and the terms of sale. You may select your buyer rather than wait for a buyer to seek out your item.  

In this example below im going to list a general listing, so il select the first option from the drop down. Directly under that there is a text field which asks you if you know the UPC, EAN or the ISBN of the product. This is typically the product bar code. If you know this enter it in and various fields will be automatically populated for you when listing your item. The item I am listing today does not have a bar code so im gonna press save and continue.

 Some tips before you place your listings: 

  • Search out your competition on MrBuyGuy, see what precise products they are offering in your league and the kind of prices they are quoting.
  • Comply with the Terms & Conditions and Restricted Items of the website.
  • Choose the appropriate category for your products.
