Sign up – free, your own shop – free, listing an item – 20 cents, selling – 3.5% fee. That’s it.
All listings include up to 5 images. Listings stay up for 4 months.

As a seller you get to choose what payment methods you accept.
We recommend PayPal, as it facilitates instant payment and offers

Listing an item is done in five simple steps. We recommend that you’ve got your photos
