HUKD vs EBAY... Clash of the Titans

Hot UK Deals vs eBay - The Slugfest!
------------------------

Who's better when it comes to buying and selling privately?
Forget trading or wanted requests, this is about buying and selling personal items and getting a fair deal... on both sides.


HUKD Pros:
- No fees (e.g. Paypal, listing, auction).
- Informal process to back out (i.e. change your mind).
- No required to register card details

HUKD Cons:
- No definite way of securing an item until paid for.
- Some members:
i) lack understanding;
ii) can be rather impolite/rude;
iii) can be hasty.
- Rules can be:
i) questionable/debatable;
ii) quite numerous;
iii) not so easy to recall every, single time;
iv) confusing.


EBAY Pros:
- Easy to use.
- Well established/reputable site.
- Wider scale of viewers/potential buyers/sellers.
- Can bring in more money.

EBAY Cons:
- Fees (e.g listing, final item value, Paypal).
- Quite susceptible to negative feedback.
- Required to registed card details to sell.
- Committed to purchasing (usually difficult to back out).


Phew! There, thats my piece off my chest... So what say you?

So what are we saying? HUKD should charge people for using their FS/FT service?

Rules can be:
i) questionable/debatable;
ii) quite numerous;
iii) not so easy to recall every, single time;
iv) confusing.

I've written a "HUKD FS/FT Rules Made Easy" book for people like you, purchase it from me in ebay. X)

Ebay for comparison :D and HUKD for good honest deals. if you do business with good honest people.

HUKD is titanic when it comes to deals but the fs/ft section is pants (normally sweaty second hand ones) - just my observation!

I quite like selling on here, it has a nice community and it's pretty safe and easy if you stick to the rules and use common sense, I loved eBay for years but it just got too big and turned on those wh fed it.

You missed the HUKD Pro/Con of people getting scammed and us 'lolling' at them.

Both true.

HUKD Pro

- Informal process to back out (i.e. change your mind


If you do that here once a deal is agreed it's actually a infractionable offence. How is that a Pro? lol

I mean you can offer a price but if you change your mind you can always negotiate with the seller. if the seller agrees this then allows other buyers to proceed.
of course if the seller wasnt happy then thats different.
