Default Is anyone even selling anything?

It seems like none of us can even give a board away, let alone sell it. I've tried here, ebay, craigslist...NOTHING WORKS :P Any suggestions as to where to sell?

Can't think of anywhere else except the places you mentioned. It also depends on what you're selling.

I have an Atomic Alibi 153 with Flow Pro-S FS bindings... I can understand not selling that because it's a few years old, albeit in brand new condition, but I have a brand new Nitro Sub Pop still in plastic that I can't sell. Blah :P

i just sold 3 older boards within 24 hrs locally here in my city. 2 on Kijiji and 1 on a car forum that has lots of members viewing their For Sale section. what's important is to type a thorough (and honest) description of your products. include what type of rider it would be good for (not everyone knows the specs on your equipment). someone looking for a cheap old board probably does not know all the technical jargon so cater your language knowing that.

also, lots of photos from different angles helps. nothing more annoying than a picture out of focus and from far away. when you shop for a board what do you pay attention to? take pictures of all thoes things.

and last but most importantly, price your stuff right. i priced my stuff for a quick sell. sure i coulda posted it for 10% or 20% more, but if you don't wanna haggle and you need a quick sale, price it properly. think: would you pay this amount for a used board? even if it's a year old... i would expect the price to be at least 40% off of last year's price. why would someone pay 30% off of regular price on last season's board? they can probably find a brand new one on clearance somewhere rather than by your stuff. don't be greedy, cut your loses and use that money to buy new stuff.

For last year's model, immediately take 40% off the retail price.
If there is a lower price online, you will beat that price. I don't care if you think $30 to ship a snowboard is unfair.
10% more for each year after.
10% more for every defect (base gouge, major topsheet chips), regardless of repair.
10% more if it has been used (even once).

You can up the price if the item is rare (i.e. Shop Kid Artifact) or in high demand (i.e. Skate Banana). Keep in mind that you will beat online prices.

If you got a Burton Jeremy Jones ICS off WhiskeyMilitia for $125, and then decide to sell it here for $250, tell us. Nobody likes a profiteering douchebag.

Don't sell crap. This includes, but is not limited to, Lamar, Morrow, LTD, 5150. Attempting will incur the wrath of me.

Include a description. Specs, motherfucker, can you give it? Same for pictures.

Very good suggestions. I used detail in my ebay posting. I guess I didn't here because I assumed people would know what's up. It is an early release 2010 Nitro Sub Pop still wrapped in plastic, so I'm surprised more people don't want these since their rocker is actually different than the competition's. Nitro doesn't even have the board on their website and it was sold in limited quantities. So I'm surprised no one wants it. I paid like $460 so I figured $400 and free shipping is a good deal, since it's wrapped in plastic and never used. I basically lose $100 bucks on something that is just as new as you buy it from the shop for. That seems like a fair deal. Plus no one is giving any discounts on the Nitro Sub Pop anywhere. It was actually shipped direct from Nitro and to my doorstep.

hmmm... tough one to call. a buyer would have to be Nirto fanboy hard up on the latest steez in order to get an early release 2010 board. at this time of the year, at this point in the game, most knowledgeable riders already have the setup they've been hunting all summer for. i find most people buying now are those that are coming in late in the game (aka beginners) or those looking for a steal of a deal. someone would need to be eager enough to buy something so new (and with zero reviews or hype) to buy a close-to-regular-priced board with half the season already gone.

but still post up a good decriptive with lots o' pictures... you never know who is out there looking. i understand your wants to not lower your price since it's a brand new board. but you have to understand it from a customer's point of view. you said it yourself... you can't find info on this anywhere... so where is a customer supposed to find suggested retail price to compare your selling price? they can compare to this year's model's price... but from there they might find a deal and just get this year's model for a cheaper price.

don't let me rain on your parade though. i hope you sell it and come back here and say "i told you so" =) good luck on the sale.

You make good points. Thanks for the advice man. Maybe I should get another pair of bindings and just ride both boards I have :P
