Top Questions

How much does it cost to sell on MrBuyGuy?

 To view a comprehensive listing of seller fees, choose from the variety of subscription packages available to you. 

Can I sell my items internationally?

 Yes, you can. However, you will have to meet the requirements for listings in each country. Also, with each country the laws of the land change and you will have to comply with the rules of that country.

How do I stop spam?

Spam means emails you don't want. Spam can include unwanted advertising, pornography and scams designed to cheat you out of your money. 

Sometimes spam comes from companies or websites you've already registered with. Most reputable companies will have an unsubscribe option in their emails. Clicking on unsubscribe will stop the company from sending you unwanted emails.

Often, however, spam comes from people or companies you've never heard of. They guess, buy or steal your email address.

Spam from MrBuyGuy Members

If you receive unwanted emails from another MrBuyGuy member, you can make a complaint at the Information Commissioner's Office website.

Here are some tips to help reduce spam:

  • Don't publish your email address on the Internet.
  • Don't choose an email address that spammers could guess easily, like ‘your_name@hotmail.com’.
  • Only give your main email address to people and companies you trust. If a website you're going to use only once asks you for an email address, get a new, free email address just for that site.
  • Read the privacy policies of the websites you visit. A good privacy policy should guarantee that the website will never sell your email address. See MrBuyGuy's privacy policy.
  • Use the highest anti-spam setting on your email program. But be careful. This could send some emails you do want into your junk folder. Be sure to check your junk folder regularly.
  • If you've already received spam, don't open it. Opening spam will tells the spammer that your email address is valid. They'll  keep on spamming you and could sell your email address to other spammers
  • Turn off email images. You can do this by changing your email program's default settings. A spammer can use an image within an email to tell if you've opened it.
  • Don't forward any marketing emails to your friends, or they'll be spammed, too.

Your Internet Service Provider and email program will be able to provide you with more tools for reducing spam.

How can I include calculated shipping costs in my listing?

  • Free shipping

How can I keep my password safe?

Your passwords are the keys that allow access to your MrBuyGuy account, your bank accounts, your emails and more.

Here are some tips to help you make sure your passwords are safe:

  • Never share any of your passwords with anyone else. If someone else uses your password, you can be held responsible for their actions.
  • Use a different password for MrBuyGuy than you do for your Internet banking and your email.
  • Don't use a password that someone would be able to guess easily, like ‘password’.
  • Don't use a simple word that could be found in a dictionary.
  • Don't use your name.
  • Make sure your password is at least six characters long, with both letters and numbers.
  • Remember to log off when you've finished using the website.
  • If you think someone may have discovered your password, change it immediately!

Sorting products

The best way to start comparing is to sort the products on the page by the criterion that is most important to you.

You can do this via the drop-down box on the top right of the page, just above the product listings.

MrBuyGuy gives you a number of different ways to sort your items:

1.  By the name of the product

2.  By product rating, with featured products on top

3.  By how recently products were added, with the latest products on top

4.  By price, from lowest to highest or from highest to lowest.

Sorting Hotels

Once you have refined your search, you can sort the hotels on the page according to the criterion most important to you. This will make it easier for you to compare.

You have a number of different choices.

You can sort:

  1. 1. By number of recommendations
  2. 2. By rating
  3. 3. By distance from a particular city
  4. 4. By price. Use the dropdown box at the top of the page to convert to a different currency.

Start Comparing

Once you've sorted the hotels so your favourites are at the top of the list, it's time to make your choice.

You will be able to see

  1. The name of each hotel
  2. Where it's located. Clicking on Show map will bring up a map for you.
  3. Its rating by reviewers
  4. The number of people who reviewed it
  5. A list of rooms available at different travel websites and their prices. You can change the form of currency by clicking on the dropdown box at the top of the page.

If you're already satisfied with that hotel and are sure you want to book a room there, you can click Book Now to start booking a room.

If you're not entirely sure, either click the hotel name, the large photo next to the name or View all rooms and you'll be taken to a page that describes the hotel in more detail and shows all the rooms that will be available during the time you want to book.

You can either book a room by clicking Go next to the room you desire or click on Back to search results at the bottom of the page to continue comparing.
