It Couldn't Be Easier!
At GarageSaleShowcase.com, Your Online Garage Sale Is Open For Business 24/7/365!
is structured as an online auction, and sellers are charged both an initial listing fee and a final value fee (which is a percentage of the total amount when and if the item finally sells). Additionally, buyers must be registered users of eBay. Listing and selling items on Garage Sale Showcase
is free, and visitors don't have to register in order to submit an inquiry about an item. Craigslist
is analogous to the classified section of your local newspaper, and is free. However, on Craigslist
, items are organized by item type, and listings expire after a short period of time. Garage Sale Showcase
is organized by seller (although users can still browse and search items by item type), with each seller having his or her own page. A Garage Sale Showcase Member
seller may continue to display particular items on his or her member page as long as he or she wishes.
Whether you're a buyer or a Garage Sale Showcase Member Seller
, if you prefer using a smartphone or tablet over a laptop or desktop, you can do everything on Garage Sale Showcase
using your mobile device. You can even take pictures of your items using your mobile device and upload them directly to your item listings!
