Out of desperation as I've piles of things to sell after a big tidy out I downloaded the Shpock app. Within 48 hours my first item had sold and been collected and a day later I got an offer on another item which I have accepted. This is low end stuff that I haven't time to list on eBay and where postage and fees would be more than the item cost.

I'm on holiday soon but as soon as I come back I'll be listing more.

    My 2 sales were both vintage collectables, I'm going to try some nearly new clothes when I get home in a couple of weeks.

    I just put up 2 photos of each, a short description and that was it.

    I've put loads of stuff on Shpock over the last few months, and I've found that stuff either sells really quickly or not at all.
    Only a small percentage of stuff I've put on has actually sold, but as it's so quick and easy to stick stuff on there compared to ebay, it's certainly worth a go.


    You do have to be ready for some ridiculous derisory offers sent in unintelligible text speak though!

    Is there any way to block users? txt speakers immediately go on my Ebay block list. I know it's profiling to an extent, but the items I sell are high end, and realistically if someone types like they just smacked their head on the keyboard, they are very unlikely be able to afford the items.

    Many of my items are highly suited to local collection, and I'm always open to other avenues, as long as I can screen people and weed out the wasters. Ebay block list is a godsend for this!

    I've had some decent sales and buys on Shpock.

    As with any local platform you are a bit hit and miss if a buyer happens to see your item and want it at the price you've set or close enough to make an offer.

    Also be prepared for people asking for postage, I generally set the same rule as I do for Gumtree that's it's cash only, if I feel something is worth the postage cost/hassle then it's going on Ebay/Amazon.

    Had a few people not turn up when buying and a few sellers just stop communicating or not answering questions, it's a bit hit and miss.

    I believe it's a decent platform but you'll get the odd timewaster/idiot as you can anywhere.
