What is VarageSale?
“VarageSale is a platform where local and interest based groups form communities to buy, sell and hangout. Members of the groups list items for sale, comment on them and discuss whether they want to purchase. ”
It may sound similar to other selling platforms out there but there are a few differences that sets VarageSale apart. When you register with VarageSale there is a short wait while an admin verifies your account. That verification adds to the community feel of VarageSale and increases safety for both buyers and sellers.
In order to register you will have to sign up and linking your facebook account.
- It increases trust amongst members
- It ensures you are dealing with real people
- Real people and trust make VarageSale successful for you
When I was approached to try out VarageSale for myself, I was quick to agree. I have a lot of items that are still in great condition but I no longer use. My experiences using a local “Mom Buy and Sell” group on facebook have always been hit and miss. The mom group I am a member of quickly fills up with items, pushing my items out of view. I also don’t like how there is no order to the typical mom buy and sell groups. Looking for what you want to buy is hard. So, when I heard there was a new VarageSale Ottawa Community I jumped right in!
Here is how my experience went.
Registering was quick and easy. It did not take long for the Admin team to approve me and I was able to join the Ottawa, Ontario Buy and Sell group.The first thing I did was browse and being a hockey mom I searched “hockey” and then “cameras”. The app is easy to use with its as-you-shop tutorial.
Once I was familiar with the app it was time to list and hopefully sell my very first item. What to sell…? First I spotted Tips and Tricks that includes learning how to post your item and other useful tidbits. It is so helpful to have all these tutorials in an easy to find area within the app. The app is so user-friendly that you will probably not need the help BUT it is nice to know it is there and easy to access!
In less than a few minutes I uploaded 3 items to VarageSale using the app and my phone. It was easy and fast, even with the distraction of shopping while I post. I thought that having a larger audience and the tidiness of the categories on VarageSale would get my items sold quicker and allow for easing browsing when I am shopping. I will update as soon as my items sell and let you know how that experience went.
