What type of items can i sell on MrBuyGuy?

On MrBuyGuy you can buy and sell almost anything.  When clicking on the sell tab on the top header of the website you will be asked to select your auction type. 

The first type is general listing.  this would be goods such as CD's, DVD's, general household items, clothing, basically any item which can be auctioned off.  A general listing will allow a user to bid on the auction, you can specify a reserve price if you like, which means the item will not be sold until the reserve is met. 

The second listing type is an instant buy.  This is where you can enter in a fix price that you would like to sell the item for.  A buyer can purchase the item at any time during the listing duration for the fixed price that you specify.

The third type is a classified ad.  A classified ad allows you to enter in a price that you would like to sell the item for.  Buyers will contact you using an enquiry form.  You can select the buyer that you would like to sell the item to.  Classified ads are useful if you would want to have more interaction with the buyer before the item is sold.

The next three items are for specific listing types. 

The first option is for a car or motor vehicle.  If you are selling a vehicle select this option, this will then give you specific fields for you to enter in about your vehicle.

The second option is for property.  If you are selling a property or looking to rent or lease a property then select the property section.  This will give to specific fields about your property so you can capture more details when creating a listing.

The third option is for a job position.  This will ensure that your listing is set up in a job listing format and also provides some additional fields for trying to fill your job vacancy.
