people sell on here quite often, I'm always on the lookout for vouchers and always check the for sale section first

I agree here is good as there are no fee's and they bring a good price around 90-95%
As you have low feedback people will ask you to send first you don't have to but it will help you sell them quicker just make sure it is someone with high feedback with a past record of high value sales.

not selling on here it seems you have to discount them on here and I have to send them first cheers

alright, you can sell them however you like. There really isn't any rule, as long as the buyer and you can agree on the same thing. good luck

You get almost full value here. Like someone else said you'll get 90-95%. A high feedback member will snap these up and pay within minutes. Doubt you'll end up with more than 75% value on ebay.

Guess MATHS is not your strong point OP

Yes you have to discount them, somewhere around 5% no more than 10%

But even with a 75% off Final Value Fees you still have to pay 25% and Paypal Fees. That would equate to over £10 and that's selling them for their face value £170.

Oh and postage costs adds another £1.74 plus few extra pence in fees fro m Paypal as on Ebay if you do not post using signed for service you will have higher chance of being ripped off.

Good luck on ebay

​I really don't know why everyone here think they are smarter than the rest. There is always a nicer way to say things and no need to be sarcastic like ' I guess MATHS is not your strong point '.
I don't think you understand what mattmerch ment. If he sells on ebay for £170 it will cost him under £11 including ebay/PayPal fee. Even cheaper if he doesn't use PayPal as a method of receiving payment.
secondly he has a GOOD rating on ebay as he probably uses it often, so the chances of someone trusting him and buying the vouchers is a lot more. There is a better chance of him to be conned here than on Ebay as well.
You said he could discount the vouchers by 5% that means it'll cost him £8.5 (wow not a big difference) He probably thinks it's worth spending an extra £2.5 and sell on Ebay and have peace of mind.
I don't go around posting such messages but really the whole comment about MATHS was absolutely unnecessary while clearly you are the one who doesn't understand

agree with what you said about how people are on here, (with talking to others)

but i would also vote for op to sell on here

since ebay is not trust worthy, if theys a problem of either non delivery or a report from the buyer the vouchers are already used, ebay will side with the buyer, if you email the vouchers to save on postage, and the buyer says they didnt get them or you didnt send them, ebay will side with the buyer, as sellers have no cover for non tangible items

ebay its way more risk to get a sell and to get to keep it

atm i got hromecast for sale there with 1st post, tho i sold one this morning to a low 400's feedback user (googled they email address, and found out the email address was on a list of emails hacked from a website a few months ago)

and desided rather than sending 1st class and getting £4 profit, i would send 1st recorded to cover non delivery and take pictures of the serial number and the sealed box before i posted, since i would rather lose £2 profit that risk and it is a high chance of risk of getting the full sale price returned to the buyer

or in short ebay has no peace of mind of sellers,

@057907
I agree and understand you have your opinion, I have mine and so does the OP. At the end of the day its up to you how you want to sell. Just few days ago I put up a TV here for sale myself to avoid Ebay fee (and so someone could make use of a good deal), what I was trying to explain is what the OP post probably meant and there is no need to comment on anyones IQ. I am not against selling on this website myself, each individual just has to see what suits them, what are the risks etc and how they prefer to sell a specific item. I personally would only sell here if I could get cash on collection. I have used ebay numerous times you can do cash on collection too and I would definitely use tracked post.
