Acorn TV

I have no complaints but I also rarely use the app. I watch on a regular PC using an old TV as a monitor. The few times I have used the app on my Samsung Galaxy, it has worked fine. The shows are great but it seems like they are very current or from the 70s with little in between. Add more shows please!

I dont get the negative reviews. I have had Sling for 5 years and it is AWESOME. I get premium channels, on demand, AND local TV through the internet hookup I have anyway. SSSSOOOOO much cheaper than cable! Very reliable!

Everybody wants to sell, nobody wants to buy. Everything I listed, I ended up deleting because it sold somewhere else first. Maybe this site will work better in a few years once the site does some advertising and gets some name recognition that translates to BUYERS!

I listed 25 items and ended up deleting them all because they SOLD on other sites while they got no looks on Artfire. I also talked to many experienced online sellers and they had never heard of the site - I suspect buyers never have either.

Etsy

I was happy with Etsy for a very long time but it went downhill quickly. I sell mainly vintage/estate jewelry and had buyers complain that items took "TWO DAYS to arrive" (nobody offered or PAID for overnight). Many buyers don't read the details or only read them AFTER they have ordered and paid then want to cancel. Etsy blames the seller for this. I also had no problem with giving a refund AFTER IT GET THE ITEM BACK. Etsy will cave to buyers by giving the refund before or INSTEAD of the return - so out the money AND the item. You can only have 3 complaints in 18 months or you are suspended for a month. On number 4 you are closed down forever. I made some nice cash there while it lasted but I could only lose so many items and so much money before we had to part company. I would try it again though if I was able to enforce my terms but I cant afford to give items away free.

In spite of the reviews about Posh being on the side of the sellers, they are very harsh with sellers and issue warnings TO SELLERS when the CUSTOMER doesn't like the item or buys the wrong size (not sure how the seller can help that). They tell buyers no refunds or returns but have NO PROBLEM dashing off a return when any buyer of MINE wants one. I had to move mountains to return the WRONG ITEM and get a refund when it was my turn as a buyer.

Also note that you only get so much leeway - more than 3 complaints in 12 months and you are suspended. You have to ship in TWO DAYS (hard to do on a 3 day weekend with no post office. It can be done and you CAN make money but know going in it is no better than Ebay or Etsy and very little forgiveness depending on which end of the transaction you are on and the day of the week.

I'm not crazy about the whole socializing and parties and sharing thing. I'm not there to make friends, I'm there to shop and sell. There is also a large percentage taken from the sale so you may not make as much money as you would on say Ebay or Etsy. Unfortunately, (like Ebay these days) folks are encouraged to have "boutiques" of new item items usually factory wholesale items the sellers buy from China that are badly made of cheap materials. I'm also not a fan of stock photos (forbidden on Ebay) instead of a picture of the actual item I will be getting.

BUT...there are options to TRADE items (which Ebay forbids), you can "bundle" (put together bulk purchases) to save on the flat rate shipping and can make offers if you don't like the price. The small sellers on the site have better offerings (better brands, more selection, faster shipping, higher end) than on Ebay and Posh is formatted for those more comfortable with taking photos with their phone and texting (I'm not - I prefer to type on a PC to get the details).

If only their stores were as easy and straight forward as their web site.

Walmart.com

But usually orders are quick and accurate and usually easier than fighting the crowds at the stores (if they even have that item at the store).

Bonanza

Bonanza

I tried Bonanza as an alternative to eBay - it is WAY hard to sell with all eBay's limits and rules and unfair feedback system. Unfortunately, Bonanza doesn't have the buyers and you NEVER see a Bonanza ad like you do eBay ads. I really don't think that anybody knows Bonanza exists. Good feedback from the few transactions I made but there just weren't enough to make much money off of.
If you have issues with items you buy then you need to take it up with the SELLER, not Bonanza.
