I have yet to have any problems on this site at all. Etsy has those weird gifts, and gifts for yourself. this is just one website that really has their together, and I feel that it is going places.

This site is perfect, I only have the one complaint...It is very hard to become a sell on the site. However if you are just buying, you'll have a great experience with this website. I am on this website a lot to buy and try to figure out how to sell on it too.




WELL THERE IS NOT MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS WEBSITE. The cost is $10.00 a month with unlimited use. no commercials once you pay for it, It has almost any song you want. The process to download is so easy a newborn could navigate through it procedures. It is a great website to use if you love music.



Offered up started as a great site to find items that was reasonably difficult to find. However in the last year or two it has become more of a time waster, unless you want to give your stuff away at half of what it is worth. I personally have a diamond tester that I bought two of on accident, so I decided to list it on here. Well I listed it for $15.00, and I have had 9 people email me about dropping the price to $10.00. In the description I have specifically said "BRAND NEW, NEVER USED JUST TESTED TO MAKE SURE IT WORKS". However I believe people don't know how to read, or are too lazy to read the description, because every time I get that same annoying question. I feel like being a pompous jerk and leaving sarcastic remarks to that question, but I let it go and tell them to read the description. That is just one example of a VERY low price, and it still is not good enough for the people on Offered up.
This is just one thing wrong, the other thing is that, when people want to buy things (as per Offered up suggestion...DON'T MEET AT YOUR HOME), but when I tell them where I meet to make my deals, I get one of two reactions...I will no longer receive any further emails from the potential buyer, or they will set up a time to meet and have you sitting there for an hour or more and never show up.
Another thing is that the prices have either doubled or tripled for some reason. EXAMPLE: I was looking for a MIG welder and found one rather quickly, but in speaking to the seller about their item I was told "my little brother got on my computer and put the wrong price. He wanted three times the amount for his/her used one than buying a one off another website. It is this way on most any item that you want.
As far as the site itself, It is ok, but the people in charge need to put a cap on what a person charges for an item, and make a punishment for wasting a persons time for not showing up for a barter/sell. If you are to use the website (as I still do but I am very cautious about things). Just be cautious about the "SHADY PEOPLE" and you may have fun.




I have been on listia now for 2yaers almost and at first it was an awesome and addicting site but as time has passed and LISTIA has grown it now has turned to all about money, the admin never answer their"support"tickets. The admin are the only ones to win the new stuff in the rewards store because the can give themselves as many credits as they want. The admin make extra accounts, and nothing can be done about it. And now the prices have doubled ever tripled in the rewards store since admin is the only ones with credits they get all the new stuff. One admin admitted to winning a tv from best buy, I put in a support ticket and it went unanswered. I'm spending all my credits and leaving that site and spreading to the worldwideweb to NOT use this scamming site.

03/03/15--; I must say in the past 3 months Listia has worked on many of the problems that the site was having. As far as the forementioned of the admin actions. I have not seen too much change, however the moderators are Jonny on the spot taking care of a negative situation. They respond to "support tickets" in the same "chain of actions, but it does seem that they are trying to boot the scammers off the site when one is presented to them. I like that they put the reward store/staff picks back to the auction style listings, versus the get it now style, it gives us that have a life beyond listia a fighting chance to get the new stuff from the stores. I can see the the admin is striving to put listia back to the way it was 2 1/2 years ago. A fun and addicting online site to get rid of old stuff and get someone else's old stuff. I have to bump my stars up to 2 specifically at the fact that they are taking comments made on review sites into consideration. Keep striving for making this back to the wonderful site that it was when I first joined. One thing if someone comes to you and tells you that an auction is an obviously fake auction, think about it, read what the person has to say and really study the fake auction, so as the scammers will get tired of having their fake auctions deleted.


03/03/15 getting better and moving in the right direction. Not nearly as much of a stressor, and actually becoming fun again.
