    I found this great online aution website. It's actually free and I've sold a few items there. The people on there don't bid very high unless its an item they want. They usually bid by cents, not dollars. I would recommend only selling sets that might not sell on Ebay or other auctions and keep your high value stamps on other auctions. You have to register and become a member which is free, but it may take a week to process. British Commonwealth and stamps from Queensland seem to go.

    I took a look at the site and not sure what they mean by you have to be a club member before you can take part in auctions.

    I gave up on efee two years ago and now list all my auctions at

    http://www.my-little-auctions.com/

    It is 100% FREE, No listing charges, No FVF, No charges of any kind.

    It has been a good site for me more than 300 sales with 132 100% Positive feedback. The site is small but has a very high selling rate due to the promotion by the site. Unlike many sites it has problem of too few sellers rather than buyers.

    Anyone interested in making more sales, I offer you this challenge. List 20 or 30 items on the 28 day auction option and just see the number of visits you receive and sales you gain. Then, and only then, decide if the site can work for you. I did this trial and it worked for me and I now have 300 plus sales as a result.

    Now I have found this forum I will try and post a link to some of the autions I list these.

    I like a man who takes up a challenge. I look forward to seeing your listings and will certianly add some links to them when I promote my own offerings.

    I work on the basis that people who look at my listings will perhaps look at yors and maybe those who look at yours will look at mine.

    Has to be good for everybody.

    Good Luck, John :)

    The New Zealand collection of 174 stamps looks good.

    Auction finished
    $1.00 even with £2.50 to ship to the other side of Europe looks good. If no bids I might dive in at the end and snap that one up myself!

    Congraulations Steve. You took up the challenge and showed that you can make money on a small, 100% Free to use, auction site.

    http://www.my-little-auctions.com/

    I think I am right when I say you listed five items, received six bids and sold four of your items. Well Done :cool:

    Be great to see you list 10 or 20 items over the weekend to see how well you do with them!

    I did sell a couple, no british interest though, 2 have not yet been paid, 2 were for Argentina same person, i am not sure if i will do again, as there is no back up, i emailed both winners and as yet no one has got back to me?

    i have more items i can put up, but will wait to make sure i get paid for the others first

    thanks again

    If you have made sales at auction, I would suggest that you at once send a paypal or Google Invoice, your buyers are perhaps waiting for a method to pay. I always send out an Invoice as soon as an auction closes with a winning bid and nine times out of ten receive payment within 24 hours.

    Good Luck and Well Done.

    I know the buyer from Argentina and did not want to bid against him for the UK stamps :(
