    If you price right the BST can be very fast.

    Collector, occasional seller

    The good news is that I had a couple coins sell on eBay in a couple of minutes, but the bad news is the coins were under priced.

    I've had a couple coins up for less than an hour on ebay. Doesn't happen often tho!

    PQ and well priced coins sell within seconds of being posted on IG regularly.

  • cladkingcladking Posts: 28,124 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Everything I've put on the BST forum and sold sold very quickly.

    Most of the things that didn't sell didn't even get a nibble.

    I bought a ten ounce bar at a shop for spot(16)+1 and drove home. Drove up to my outer gate, put the bar on my knee in sunlight, took a pic and listed it on eBay for $600.

    Opened gate, drove in and closed gate. Had 3 offers and full price BIN and pd by PayPal.
    Shocked!! A few minutes

    Have a nice day

    I don't remember what the actual time duration was, but it was less than 10 minutes. I think I priced it too low!

    Doesn't that mean your price is actually wrong...?

    If you're underpricing your material, very fast, lots of internet sharks ready to buy and flip; also when giving money away/leaving money on the table raving feedback from buyers is not uncommon.

    I sold an MS62 small eagle dime here on the BST to a dealer one hour after I posted it. He told me I had underpriced it, and after he sold it later at a show, voluntarily sent me a check for $1600.
    Back in those days, he was a true mensch.

    Bought a CWT two weeks ago and decided this week that I didn’t like it. Threw it on eBay yesterday at 80% markup and sold it in 12 minutes. Was pretty surprised.
