Listia is a digital marketplace where members can get rid of their old stuff, and can get new stuff, for free. According to their website, Listia users have traded over 2 million items.
When you become a member of Listia, you can list your old, unwanted items for auction, anything from antiques to electronics or even holiday decorations. People will use Listia credits to bid for your stuff; the highest bid wins.
All bidding must be done with Listia credits that you earn in a variety of ways from the website. Just for signing up, you receive 500 credits. 400 credits will be given to you automatically, and the final 100 will be given after you list your first auction.
You also can earn credits when you successfully refer your friends to use Listia. You will be given 200 credits when they sign up using your referral link, and 20% of the credits brought in by their first auction.
Finally, you can earn credits simply by signing onto Listia with either Facebook or Twitter, as well as being “active” on the site by giving other members’ feedback or comments on their auctions.

You need always cross finger and bless that nobody in listia put your same ship address or else listia would suspend you and that person together.
you may not know that, listia force people can only ship to verified address. but one thing you guys do not know. sellers would ask you,
"hey you, you won my item why put a fake address
use that grey box above, put that address , or else I dont send items."
originally put address (shipping address) is not a big problem but do you know what had listia done on the shipping address.....
yes if you people put shipping address that matches another listia members yes you will know why people got banned. 2 people CAN NOT use same shipping address. if 2 people use same add, listia would ban both accounts.
when you join listia, you have to cross fingers and keep hope and keep ask Jesus or buddha or Allah that nobody else in listia have the same or identical shipping address together wtih you
because if 2 people have same address
YES YOU ARE BEING SUSPENDED in MAX 24hrs (one day) just because 1 LISTIA MEMBER HAVE THE SAME SHIPPING ADDRESS TOGETHER WITH YOU especially if you really dont know this rule then suddenly got suspended..
or , some people want to send item to friends. of course, they would use their friends' addresses right?
then the original person wants to use listia, not know this case.....
they not know someone used their own address to this site.
then suddenly, first, address not verified keep pending
second. when they tried to login the same day, EH WHY CANT LOGIN?
yes this happens frequently in listia.
Listia is not only a big ripoff or scam its a very dumb site.
a dumb site that thinks that all people who use same shipping addresses are frauds.
that is why I would tell people do not pay money to listia.
listia would ban 2 account if shipping address is same do you know this thing
not only one IP only one account thing in listia
there is a shipping address verification in listia that you guys not know
each address in everywhere can only be used once.
if 2nd time someone put your address (shipping address in listia) what would happen and why pending.
pending, gives time to listia staff to catch cheaters (they call that cheating - 2 people use same address is cheating and fraud)
LISTIA DOES NOT ALLOW ONE IP ADDRESS TWO ACCOUNTS. AND ALSO ,SHIPPING ADDRESS THING IN LISTIA, THEY NOT APPROVE SAME ADDRESS OVER ONE TIME.
IF 2 PEOPLE TYPE SAME ADDRESS LISTIA WOULD CATCH BOTH LISTIA.COM MEMBER ACCOUNT WITH SAME ADDRESS THEN SUSPEND 2 ACCOUNTS TOGETHER.
A CHINESE CLASS IN HONGKONG/CHINA ALREADY 40 PEOPLE IN ONE CLASS.
IF ONE CLASSMATE BIRTHDAY, WHOLE CLASS GO LISTIA TO BID ITEMS TO THE CLASSMATE, IT'S NORMAL THAT ALL PEOPLE SAME SHIPPING ADDRESS (THAT BIRTHDAY KID)
BUT WHEN 2 OR MORE PEOPLE WRITE SAME ADDRESS LISTIA WOULD THINK "ALL 40 PEOPLE ALL SAME PERSON PRETENDING" THEN SUSPEND ALL 40 PEOPLE TOGETHER
THIS IS HOW DUMB LISTIA IS.

I Love Listia
I have been with Listia for two months and have sold many of used toys, cds, books on Listia. It amazes me that everything I listed was sold quickly, including even a Chinese movie, an artist graphics biography, a kid poetry book. The site is definitely easy and rewarding to use. I was able to buy new race car toy, some used puzzles and books for my kids before the Christmas. I like that I can auction my item to highest bid on Listia and also like the feature GIN (get it now) which allow you to set at what amount you will sell your item and stop further bidding process.
I trust Listia, as if I don't get item that I won auction on, I would get my credits back through Listia moderators. Overall, I love this site.
Cannot tell you how great this site is, I have only had awesome experiences on Listia. Have been a member almost 3 years. Anytime I wrote to Listia about anything, they are always quick to respond. I have gotten some really awesome deals on there. Not mentioning being able to get rid of things I don't want anymore. Feels like I am trading my stuff for something else, without having a huge cost involved. I would highly recommend it to anyone!!
