About Listia

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.

Not bad

Reviewed By Nicole on August 5, 2014

Overall, it's not much different than ebay. Selling items is easy but requires extra cash for shipping expenses. Most people do not bid very high, if you list items with a shipping cost. You can refer other members and receive extra credits for signing up with a referral link.

LISTIA

Reviewed By Carly Grey on August 2, 2014

I signed up 2 days ago. I've won 2 auctions & earned free 'credits'.

Most of the 'Bargains' look like stuff you find rifling through junk drawers at your dead aunt Martha's house...ie:[actual listings] partially used note pads with 2 used pencils, condoms from planned parenthood, digital recipes from Google, used underwear, ONE Coke point....The nicer stuff is mostly overpriced.

I was looking to sell without fees. There is VERY little infrastructure & virtually no safeguards for sellers OR FOR BUYERS. I had to leave the site & Google my way to any help in understanding how it operates--literally where to click next for what. There is no visible 'Help' available & NO 'Contact Us'.

WORST of all, in the last 2 days I have received 23 Listia emails & 11 'severe' malware tracking events!!! I surf a LOT, but have not had even ONE in the last 8 months--until now. My anti-virus software has isolated them, but this is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

I'm removing my membership to Listia, but have no way of knowing what information of mine will still be out there.

I'm an EBAYer & I hate the tangle of fees & restrictions--but this has made me appreciate it more. We know what Ebay gets out of their site-- TONS of $$. You can see that motivation in every new change they make....But here's the big question for Listia users: what do the Listia owners get out of their site??? The number of people 'buying credits' has to be pretty limited. The only possible answer is that they are selling access to user's information. Check out other people's experiences online before you sign up & have good anti-virus software in place.

Listia is OK

Reviewed By Tommy on July 24, 2014

I have been a listia member for about 2 months. So far so good I have listed a few things and won a few. For me it is just for fun. I enjoy the competition in the bidding. I give them two thumbs up.

I really enjoy Listia and I'm not 'staff'

Reviewed By Ashlyn Chase on July 15, 2014

I'm an author and sometimes I give away my free books. I pick up new fans and get points to buy gift cards, etc. I often use those for contest prizes. Win-win.

Sometimes I give away other stuff I just don't want. It's a great place to recycle decent stuff. I get other things besides gift cards, and haven't been disappointed with anything yet. Wish I could say the same about ebay.

Plus it's fun! I got my hand slapped once, but I understood why. (Lesson learned. Read the rules.) And they're good about resolving the occasional issue with other members. Most of the time, the 'buyers' are really happy and grateful for whatever I list. That's one of the things I like most.
