Hi

I am in Australia, I have already sold heaps of my good games on ebay (for far less than I paid for them) and I am wondering if I would fair any better selling on here - the problem being I am in Australia and have seen far more international sellers here than Oz sellers.

Anyone have experience selling personal collection games here? How does it compare to selling on ebay/Gumtree/other?

Ta
Sarah

p.s. I am down to the last 6 games and I don't expect much for them but as they are practically new and must just go at the whim of the ADHD hubby I do want the best price, we can't afford to let them go so cheaply at auction!

Most of the games I've sold at prices close to or higher than I paid originally, but I think you probably require greater patience to sell through BGG because you don't have a clock ticking on the sale.

You also get a better price as a result ...

BGG only charges a 3% commission, and only when a game is sold. It doesn't cost anything to list, so you can set prices that you'd be happy with and give it a try.
