How To Sell On Overstock.com Marketplace - Inventory Management

Overstock is a great place to buy and sell your stuff. It hosts a great auction site and great features for all members. Overstock.com provides comprehensive buying details and feedback about every user on the site.

Selling Fees

Overstocks listing fees are technically lower than eBay, but not by much. Registration is free and listing costs range from 10 to $3.15. Final value fees are also less expensive than eBay, only 3% for items sold under $25. If your items dont sell, you can relist your items for free as many times as it takes to sell them. Upgrading your listing and adding attention getters to Overstock listings costs about the same as eBay, $1 for bold and $5 for highlighting. Having your auction featured costs $13.17. The first picture you upload is free, but you can add up to 6 more for 10 each. Overstock also has subscription plans for frequent and concurrent users. Plans start at $6.95 a month for 25 simultaneous listings. Or you can open a store and cross promote your items on the details page.

Selling Features

Sellers cant list multiple items under a Dutch auction, nor can they have a private auction listing. Sellers are also not allowed to block bidders for any reason and cant cancel bids. Sellers can add a subtitle to their auction listings and offer their items at fixed prices if they wish. A page counter is located at the bottom of each listing page so you can see how many times your item has been viewed.

Listing Options

Looking for auction items and bidding on them is simple on Overstock.com. Advanced search functions make looking for specifics even easier. You can also easily change how your search results are sorted and listed. You can change how many search results are displayed per page and sort the listings in a number of different ways, including time remaining, number of bids, and price. Overstock also includes a live time clock on every page that continuously counts down the auction without having to repeatedly refresh your page. However, you must remember to refresh occasionally to update other bids.

Payment Options

Overstock relies on the typical feedback program, allowing both buyers and sellers to leave comments and ratings about other members. Buyers and sellers are then encouraged to review other members feedback to determine if they can be trusted based on previous transactions and other members experiences. To deter sniping, all Overstock auctions are placed on soft closes, which means if there is any bidding activity within the last ten minutes of the auction, the auction is extended for another 10 minutes, after which, bidding closes. High priced items require bidders to place credit card deposits as earnest money on the product they are bidding on. All deposits will be refunded when the auction closes.
