Default Collector Revolution

Does anyone sell here? It seem like this site could be great if it gets enough traffic - no listing fees, no final value fees for items under $5, 5% on up to $1,000, 3% on $1,000-$2,500, 2% above $2,500, no final value fees on shipping. I may try it out.

I listed a few small items on their last week and just put a couple of nice Longoria's up today. Will continue to add more as the weeks and months go on. I hope the Revolution catches on. If it can get some more traffic (which has definitely been increasing daily) it could make for a great place to buy and sell.

I put up 45 items last week for the first time, and nothing so far. Not one single offer. Love the concept, but it's such an unknown that I don't see it passing eBay or COMC anytime soon.

Problem with sites like these is when they finally get a good amount of traffic they start to charge the same amounts all the other auction sites do.

I have more than 500 items on there. I don't do a lot of business, but there's no risk so I don't mind them being there. I'm thinking it will take a solid year or so before things pick up. I'm patient. I recommend people use the site like a photobucket account with pricing. No risk involved at all.

I need to put more listings up on the site because Ebay has been deader than dead lately.

This is what i do too. I use to store all my hits with pricing so if anyone wants to trade i send them to my CR instead of a photobucket. Easier to navigate and while they are there if they happen to just want to buy something they can.

Site is super easy to navigate and list.

Sold my first card today! I hope this site takes off. It's very quick/easy to list and for half the fees of eBay.

Plus, I called their customer service to ask a question about payment, and the guy was very nice & helpful.

I'm on there as well, great site with a lot of potential. I think the trick is to list your items a little cheaper on there than you would on eBay, since you're saving money on fees. Then you tell your customers each time you make a sale that if they like lower prices, they should check out your items on Collector Revolution. That will help drive traffic to the site AND help you make some sales. It's worked for me thus far!
