If you are looking for a place to sell your bouncy castle, you may initially be ‘drawn’ to the bigger general Internet marketplaces like; eBay. However, online marketplaces are not the best place to sell ‘specialist’ items, and in this article, we will explore why.
Online marketplaces may have huge traffic, but how many of them are looking for what you offer?
Some of the larger online marketplaces may receive millions of searches, but how many of those are aimed towards the inflatable leisure industry? The reality is that these are still specialist items, which is why searches for bouncy castles for sale are kept to specialist sites. Furthermore, every person that clicks on a specialist site either wants to sell or buy either new or second hand bouncy castles and this is targeted traffic you simply will not get elsewhere.
How much am I paying in fees?
The main drawback of the bigger sites is because they receive so many hits, they feel that they have the right to charge huge fees. For instance, on eBay, you pay to list the item and also pay a colossal final value fee. If you list a second hand bouncy castle on eBay at £400 with no additional features as a ‘buy it now’ item you would pay £40 + £0.40 when the item sold. That’s just over 10% of the final fee.
On our site listing new or used bouncy castles for sale does not cost a penny. Not only is it free to join, but it is free to list your items for 60 days. That means you pay no listing fees or end of transaction fees.
