Move over eBay – there is a new video game listing website on the digital playground. Online price aggregator, PriceCharting, recently released their live Marketplace to buy and sell video games.
For gamers, there is a major upside to using this service as opposed to others like eBay: no listing/sales fees. Users can now sell games online, without fear of losing half the product’s value due to paying an absurdly priced listing fee.
Another upside to using PriceCharting’s service is the free shipping. Buyers now have the comfort of knowing they won’t have to pay a single dime for shipping costs.
Some other benefits of the site include:
- Objective conditions (using words like ‘writing’, ‘scratches’, stickers’ instead of subjective statements like ‘good’)
- Lower prices (Buyers can expect prices to be at or lower than those found on eBay. Sellers can sell at a lower price point and receive the same amount for a game that they’d otherwise have to sell at a higher price on eBay (again, due to listing fees))
Additional details about the PriceCharting Marketplace can be found here.
The website has seen widespread acceptance since its launch last Tuesday, with more than 18,000 items already listed. JJ Hendricks (Owner, PriceCharting) wants to get the word out about his ‘listing-fee’ free service to gamers worldwide. “If you like free, please share the marketplace with your friends. Otherwise fees win”, Hendricks said in a recent announcement e-mail.
