Just thought I would share a few tips I have picked up over my years of collecting and trading
- Take the time to read listings fully, checking for any hidden charges or add-ons (you will never find any on my auctions)
- Spend some time checking out corinthian websites and completed auctions to get an idea of prices
- Make sure that the seller sends any blisters/platinums/window boxes in a box rather than jiffy bag, otherwise the item will almost certainly arrive damaged
- Check the sellers feedback and be wary of sellers with a small number of feedback ratings or a poor rating %age. Reading the comments usually gives you a good idea about your seller
- It is usually worth paying a wee bit more to buy from a reputable seller, because you can be 99.9% sure your transaction will be completed without problems
- Most major sellers have large amounts of stock, if you need a specific figure, ask and they may well have it available!
- If you are bidding from overseas, contact seller first to establish postage charges, this will save any hassle when the transaction is complete
- When you have completed transactions successfully, make sure you leave feedback reflecting this, this will in turn help other users who wish to identify the best sellers!
- Be very careful buying master models from sellers you don't know and trust!
I hope this guide was useful, happy bidding and collecting guys!
