Safe and Secure.
When you sell with us it is safe, secure and you avoid all the traps normally associated with selling privately. No strangers calling to your house, no worrying if the parcel has been lost in the post and no scammers on auction web sites.
The fine print.
We charge a set 25% commission on items over $500 under this amount we charge 30%. Which if you compare to other stores is very reasonable even compared to ebay if you add up fees and Paypal commission.
We pay any charges incurred when someone pays by credit card.
We will also pay the correct amount of GST payable to the ATO.
We will list your equipment on our popular web site.
We provide the buyer with a 3 month guarantee on your equipment.
We will pay you 14 days after the sale of a single item or in the case of large kits after the last item has been sold.
What we do not accept.
Items in poor condition i.e. mechanically not sound or with fungus, ex professional equipment, trinkets and accessories such as filters, bags, tripods etc…
