What sort of website is Listia..?

Basically it's free eBay. Some put a value on the credits but I look at it this way... If what you have is worth money then sell it, don't give away for free. Protect yourself and try to use tracking if a seller, saves your butt when the buyer "claims" they didn't get. You can earn credits buy doing your own auction and there is always surveys or videos to watch to earn credits. Look around at auctions and get familiar with the site. you can always contact listia support for help as well. Good luck.

you list auctions for credits credit value is 6700= $1.00 but a year ago it was 2000=$1.00 so there inflation rate is crazy the moderators stink at first list small things get your feedback first smaller cheap things but most of the time you get stiffed you pay own shipping if you don't your get nothing for your goods. beware of the scammers listia supports them and they get away with it to sum it up listia sucks

They promote themselves as a "get free stuff" trading/ auction site. You list stuff and bid on stuff with points ( which if you don't have from trading, cost money ). Then, most things have shipping fees. In the long run, if you do the math, it's cheaper and easier to just go buy it.

Unfair! I got a permanent ban from Listia and was given a list of reasons for which anybody might get banned but for which was I specifically banned? yes, why every day is waiting time for selling credits increasing. There is no way, why this would go on, unless Listia is putting their sales ahead of everyone else. Is there any other explanation??? If I have received shipping addresses for items, aren't I supposed to receive the money for shipping (from the seller that I have said it mandatory) first before I send anything out? I finlally after jumping trough all the hoops got access to be on the list to sell my credits. Now it is literally 3 months later and I am still looking to sell the same 317000 credits only know due to the rampant inflation in your site, those are worth a full third less.
