Back to eBay-sics

For the first time in ages, I’ve fired up the scanner and listed a couple of old covers on eBay. It’s material that doesn’t really fit into my collection, so it’s time for it to go.

I really tend to use my Delcampe storefront more than eBay. A big reason is that Delcampe lets me set up listings to automatically restart if my item doesn’t sell the first time around—and keep restarting until I get a bid or somebody buys the lot. It’s kind of a set it and forget it deal, which I like. Delcampe also seems to have lower fees than eBay does, which is a big plus, especially for items with very low values.

On the other hand, material listed on eBay seems to move a bit more quickly, and my interest here is really just on getting some stuff out the door.

What’s your experience? Do you prefer eBay, Delcampe, or one of the other online auction sites when you’re selling off surplus philatelic material?
