Another question I get asked all of the time is whether I prefer to sell gear on eBay, or from this website.
Personally, I prefer to sell directly from the website because I can sell at a lower price, and deal with my customers in confidence. When you go to my website, you can see all of my contact information so you can email or call me to ask a question or find out if I can find some gear you are looking for. From talking with my customers, I really get to know them and their needs. And the reverse is true — my customers get to know me. The site offers many more options than eBay does.
EBay is a good site for advertising some of the items I have for sale. However, it does not offer the personal interaction and trust that can be gained by direct communication. In addition, the expenses for the seller are high. For example, if I sell an item for $5000; eBay charges me $250, and PayPal charges me $250. The same item can be sold from the website for $500 less. Also, if you talk to me directly, you might find that I have a piece of gear that would work better for you or perhaps one that costs less.
As a seller on eBay, I find there are customers I do not trust. I have had experience with customers who say they want to buy, but then back out without paying. They will leave unwarranted feedback because they have asked needless questions that have already been answered. The feedback can be disputed with eBay, but the buyer is free to say what he or she wants.
Over all, dealing with my customers directly is my preferred method of selling. It is much more personal and much less expensive for the buyer, and the seller.
