The wonderful site that is

No one has asked me to write about or sing its praises, just so you know. These are my pure, unadulterated, unsponsored opinions!)

Have you heard of My husband and I have been using this site for years and years, and I am always surprised at the number of people who haven’t partaken of its bargainy goodness before.

What is and how does it work?

Well, it’s sort of like Ebay, except without the pain-in-the-rear auction part of things (I am not a fan of auctions, in case you couldn’t tell). Ebay actually bought a number of years ago and was planning to close it down, but thankfully they decided against that.

Anyways, has inventory that is listed by private sellers, just like Ebay, but the prices are all fixed. If you find something you like at the price you want, you just buy it, pay for it, and the seller ships it to you. Easy-peasy.

The private sellers list the condition of the item as Brand New, Like New, Very Good, Good, and Acceptable, so you can choose from a wide range of conditions and prices. The used items are usually great bargains, but even the brand new items are often great deals.

What should you buy there? will not be able to supply all your needs, because they only sell media (books, CDs, DVDs, games) and some gaming equipment, but if you are in the market for any of those things, you really should check there before you buy anywhere else.

We’ve used this site for buying

  • music
  • children’s books
  • school books for our kids
  • textbooks for college (SO much cheaper than anywhere else)
  • a DS for Joshua (he saved up for it himself!)

Selling at

While we’ve bought our fair share of merchandise at we’ve also sold quite a bit of stuff through them. I prefer selling there over Ebay because on, there is no up-front cost to list your items. When your listed item sells, you pay a portion of that sale to, but until your items sells, listing is totally free. Love that.

It’s also less of a headache to get paid on than on Ebay, because the buyer pays directly, and then pays you.

I have now typed “half” so many times, it doesn’t even look like a word to me any more.

That probably means that I have said enough about it in this post to last you for a while. Really, though, I cannot say enough good things about this site. Next time you need music, movies, books, or games, go check it out…I can almost guarantee you won’t be sorry!

Thanks for letting us know it works for you! I've bought books on there, but never sold any...but I have a ton of text books just sitting around.

My daughter discovered this site this fall when she started college. Sold one book so far and bought one for this semester too. She loves it.

I read this yesterday and then sign on with and listed a couple of items. Today I received a notice that one item had already sold. I'm very excited! Thanks for sharing your experience.

I have bought plenty on (two things yesterday, in fact!) but I haven't ventured into the selling arena yet. Have you ever posted tips on selling? I'd read them before I dive in if you have! Do you research price? List yours just under other prices? Go with the "norm" on shipping? What packaging and shipping tips would you offer? Do you go with USPS or another shipper? Ah, my question list goes on and on...

Thank you! I just ordered our next Sunday School book for $5.38 WITH shipping!
