Gear Focus for selling camera gear?

4 weeks 4 hours ago #665736 by Steve Zahra
I'm tired of using Craigslist to try to sell my used gear.  I went to Google yesterday and did some searches and found 'Gear Focus'.  

Have you bought or sold anything on this site before?  Did it go as expected?  Better yet would you recommend the site?

Interesting.  As long as this is better than CL, I'm very good with that.  But never heard of this site.

I tried selling a tripod on Craigslist 2 weeks ago and ended up pulling the ad.  Way to many @#$% trying to get me to ship it if they pay me via PayPal or some sending cashiers check.  Yeah right.

In that instance I'd accept a paypal payment, though I'd withdraw my money prior to shipping the item sold.....Of course doing that ended my account with PP, and made me switch banks thanks to a scammer.

Why so serious?

Not many listings on it.  Must be new.

Did I miss something, what's the charge?  Is it free like CL?

I only sell to those that I can meet in person.  Can't meet in person, you don't get my gear.  As simple as that.

I really wish Craigslist would figure out a way to control the spam.  It's a large site, heck offering such a filtering or peace of mind might be a way they could charge for use of the site.

I see I'm not the only one frustrated.  You would expect they would do something about that.

Your best bet is just to use a dummy email address that you only use for Craigslist listings.
