Selling on BGG

If your estate liquidator has the time and ability to liquidate games themselves, they might try using BGG to do so.

The HUGE challenge for a non-gamer trying to do this is correctly and adequately identifying the games in the collection. I'm a pretty serious gamer, and STILL get it wrong on about one in fifty games from estates I buy. Organize and label your games, especially edition number! You could then list them all in the BGG marketplace with $1000 price tags, so that all your survivor needs to do is change the price to be competitive, and then FIND that game on your shelves. You might include a shelf number with the notes field in every BGG listing.

Packing and shipping can be pretty labor intensive, especially when you sell to an especially difficult buyer. The labor and re-shipment costs associated with a problem sale are significant, so do everything you can to help your survivors get every sale right the first time.

More to come.
