How do I buy?
Simple, once you have registered and found something you want, simply make the seller an offer. The requested price is listed with each item but keeping with the fun on a traditional boot sale you can offer the seller a price you want to pay. The seller will then respond to confirm the sale or to reject your offer. You can then carry on haggling over the price until both parties are happy.

You can then make payment either via cheque, postal order, cash, Pay Pal or NoChex (payment options depend on the seller) and your new purchase will arrive in the post.

How do I sell?
We have made the selling process very simple, in fact it fits on one small page. You will need to describe your item, give it a title and a price. Select the category which best suits what you are selling. Finally you can specify postage costs and upload an optional picture... Click 'Sell Item' and its automatically listed on the website within 10 minutes.

You can be as descriptive of the item as you like, but remember the more you enter the easier it will be to sell. Pictures are optional but will greatly increase the chance of selling the item.

How do I start?
You can browse the items for sale without registering, but if you want to buy and sell your need to register, it takes less than three minutes to create an account on Bitsnbobs - and don't worry all your personal details are kept secure.
