Listings

If you're looking for tips and tricks on creating a great listing check out our seller guides.

Listing types

Auction

  • Sellers can set a start price and specify a reserve. A Buy Now can also be added.
  • Members place bids bids will begin at the start price, and may need to reach a reserve price. If a Buy Now is added, this can be selected at any time, until the bids exceed the Buy Now.
  • If the reserve is met, the highest bidder is the winner. If the Buy Now is accepted, the auction will close right away. 


Classified 

Classified sales happen off-site, and are used for property, motors, certain machinery and animals. 

  • Sellers create a listing and set an asking price. 
  • Interested members contact the seller directly. 
  • Once an agreement has been reached, the seller withdraws the listing. 


Services

  • Advertisers set up a listing to offer services. 
  • Members contact advertisers directly. 
  • Members can review their experience.

Viewing a listing

You can offer viewings for Property and Motors listings.

We don’t offer viewings for Marketplace listings, as there is a potential for trades to be completed offsite – feedback can’t be given, and buyers aren’t covered by Buyer Protection.
