How do I Sell safely?

 

So you've set up a deal and you're meeting your buyer - we know you might have some concerns over making a safe trade, so here are tips to make sure you and your buyer walk away happy:

Meeting a buyer

  • Always meet in person. We'd recommend trading locally for safe deals.
  • A buyer who offers you more money to ship your item to them is usually a scammer, and you can report them.
  • Try to meet in a public place like a shopping mall or petrol station. If someone needs to come to your house to fetch a large item, make sure you have a friend or family member with you.

Making the exchange

  • As far as possible, only get paid in cash for your item
  • If you must accept a bank transfer, make sure you call your bank to check that the funds have cleared before handing over the item
  • Never accept a proof of payment SMS or email - these are very easy to fake.

We aren’t in any position to handle or facilitate any exchange of money. So, please, be careful when handing over payment.
