For Sale Thread

Found 12th Aug
Does anyone else other than myself still miss the the for sale/trade section. I know there is that lokal rubbish or whatever it's called. Just isn't the same.

A bit of nostalgia.

Lokal is rubbish!

It's like Gumtree but nobody uses it.

Shpock home of the low ball offers


Someone offered me £100 for an Xbox One S

Eventually a decent buyer comes along, sold it in the end for £140.

I had so many ridiculous offers on shpock, I uninstalled the app, and will never consider it again.
Worst selling platform ever imo.
Shpock is terrible, full of scroungers and deadbeats.

This was quite a few months ago, and mine was in mint condition with box + accessories, and had the worthless FIFA 17 included.
Some one offered £20 for beats solo 3. They were listed at £150. Someone else listed a white now tv box. I bought one for £5. He listed a used one for £50. He put basically an Apple TV in the description. Someone bought it for £45 apparently(excited)
I tried Shpock to sell a Macbook Pro 2016 and got a ridiculous low offer (not much interest for the item on there) so I focused on eBay and sold it on there for what I wanted for it.
On eBay I had quite a few offers but I didn't give in until someone bought it for my price.
I wasn't impressed with Shpock.
I think eBay has got like that recently. Really silly offers. Selling something for £30 And people offer £4. I don't think I would I would have the nerve offering someone something like that.
It used to decent on here. Some draconian rules. But at least you could buy and sell stuff with ease at reasonable prices. I tried Lokal, but it is total junk. Haven't sold one item on it. And nobody responds to buying either. Plus all the spam. It's a shame, do miss it in here.

They probably realised it was awful. I think they need to bring back for sale/trade section.

They won't, it cost them too much money (a lot of admin yet no affiliate links to cover the costs).

True. Why not allow hukd members to moderate it,or something, so the admin can focus on other tasks.
It's at the bottom of the page

You always had lovely stuff!! I miss it too. Got two boxes full of stuff to sell.

Shpock is a waste of time, some of the offers you get are so low you'd think people were confusing it with freecycle.

I guess it also takes up server space which costs money to maintain. HUKD members moderating wouldn't work as there'd be inconsistencies in applying rules.

It worked well for years. It was people not following the rules that lead to people being scammed.

It did, but it's not because of that IMO.

It's because of the cost of hosting the FSFT section and paying admin/mods to moderate it when no affiliate link money was earned. We should try to launch our own FSFT, maybe using the HUKD subreddit?

I'm pretty sure mods get paid, @andywedge don't you? I always thought they did, or surely some of the site legends would become mods?

The only way they'd be able to charge everyone effectively is to charge a flat fee for listing, as a 1% fee wouldn't work unless HUKD controlled payment too (as people can lie and say the item didn't sell, or it sold for £1 when it sold for £100 etc.).

yep....known for years they get paid. Had a friend on here who became a mod for fs/ft. Thankless job. He never disclosed what they paid him but I guess it would be a niec gig.
