Have you ever thought about selling on Ebay, but don’t want to pay the fees? Do you have a pile of unwanted items just waiting to find a new home or a basket of samples you’ll never use? Do you like getting things for free?? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then you might want to check out Listia!
I’ve been using Listia for a few months now and I really like it! I’ve been able to trade my unwanted items (clothes, free coupons, toys, and various other things) for other free items on the site, such as purses, gift cards, free coupons, various samples, and more!
The basic idea of the site is very easy: 1) join the site for FREE, 2) list an item to offer (or “sell”), 3) people bid on your item with credits they have earned from selling their own items, 4) you mail the item to the winner. Easy as pie! Plus, not only do you get credits from the items you’ve listed, but you get credits for doing things like leaving feedback for a seller or buyer, listing an item with “free shipping”, and advertising your listing on Facebook and Twitter.
Here is the description of Listia taken directly from their website:
What is Listia?
Listia is a new kind of online auction site where you bid on other people’s stuff using credits instead of real money. We make it easy for you to give away stuff you don’t need anymore and get stuff you want in return for free. If you enjoy giving and getting items for free, then you’ll love Listia!
For a limited time, every new user gets 1000 free promotional credits just for signing up and listing an item. The more popular your listing is, the more credits your auction will go for. You can then use those credits to bid for things you want. The highest bid wins the item, so each thing goes to the person who wants it most! Getting more credits is easy, fun and most importantly, costs nothing!
