Trainers question

I listed 2 brand new pairs of trainers as Buy it now or best offer but though there were lots of watchers no-one bit.

They weren't overpriced just sale price as that is how I bought them and BNIB.

What now? Ebay has relisted but any other routes? Gumtree? I stupidly bought them in Office sale without trying on and I am a 4 in shoes but forgot I have to size up in trainers.

A local Facebook selling site?

You can advertise on Gumtree. No harm, it's free, but I wouldn't be too confident on selling them on there.

Trainers don't fetch a lot on eBay, unless they are very popular ones.

I recently sold a brand new pair of Nike Air Max 1s for £34 (auction) on eBay and the RRP was £90.

Did you have a look and see what similar pairs are selling for on eBay before deciding your price?

If you want to sell on eBay as a BIN, it sounds like you need to lower your price accordingly, and accept that you're going to have to take a hit on this one.

Or sell them on an auction. That's a bit of a risk that you won't get the price you want, but then there's that old saying "they're only worth what someone will pay".

I think I may just do an auction.

How does the Facebook local selling page work?

The thing is they are both quite popular and popular sizes.

I think I will leave them up as they were relisted automatically (don't think you can take down). One pair now has 2 watchers.

try buy it now with best offer. And if no bids you can end an auction if you wish.

what time of the day does your auction end. Want to post an auction no so can look for you?

yes I think buy it now needs a best offer option as well. Be prepared for silly offers, which you can decline, but perhaps add a couple of £ to allow for a lower offer.

id it too late to return them, as I thought you could still return sale items?

I think I did the best offer but no one bit!

No with Office you can only return sale items if you bought them online not instore unless you get confirmation verbally from a SA (like I did once).
