Hi, Where would be a better place to sell my Acer Tablet apart from eBay? They charge a Final Value sale price of around 10%. On top of listing fees, Paypal charges it would be well over £30. On trying to list this item for £260, the final value chrage was £27 alone. Any suggestions appreciated.

rick i sold an item on ebay some time ago i felt i was robbed by them! they now charge 12% thats a fee that is not including the price of your advert! ive found Gumtree or Preloved to be great and free! BUT be warned gumtree has a lot of scammers asking you to send the item abroad! if you can see through the smoke you'l be fine on them sites..

Thanks guys, will have a look at Preloved. Ebay has becomevery expensive. Not worth selling anything unless you are desperate. Daylight roberry it is. Worse than a certain Mr. Turpin!!!

My sister in law seems to get quite some success in selling items through Facebook. You'd obviously have to have a lot of friends.
