Postmark’d provides an easy way to sell your gently used or new items on eBay. We keep you informed by e-mail throughout the resale process. When your item sells, we e-mail you a disbursement report that itemizes the selling price and payout. You can expect a check to be delivered after your item has sold.
How we help you sell:
Just get an item to us, we will evaluate marketability of the item and tell you an estimated eBay selling price. Upon listing your item for sale with us, we will:
• Write a detailed description of your item
• Photograph your item
• Place your item on eBay
• Respond to potential bidders about the item
• Manage the payment process
• Package and ship the item

Q: How much does it cost if my item doesn’t sell?
A: There is absolutely no charge if your item does not sell.

For electronics and machines, Postmark’d will perform rudimentary testing of basic power and functionality and report the results on the listing. Items will be sold on an as-is basis. If the item has evidence of coming from a smoking environment, a disclaimer will be placed on the listing that indicates this.

A: If your item doesn’t sell you can pick it up within two weeks of the auction close, or we can donate your item to charity.
Q: Can I set a reserve or minimum selling price for my item?
A: Yes, however bidding activity is often reduced as a result.

A: It generally takes around four weeks from the date you bring us the item.
Q: What do I do when I’m ready to sell?
