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.

I don't get the hate. Listia really works!

Reviewed By Jubi on January 15, 2017

I honestly don't understand all the hate on Listia. In fact, I have won so many amazing things on it, and have not sold a single one of my items on it at all! I have never listed an auction on my account, and have never paid money for credits, and I have won plenty of manga, DVDs, video games, stickers, phone chargers, etc. I follow the rules, and obviously I haven't gotten in trouble in any way at all. Just read the rules before registering... You are probably asking now, "How do you get credits, then, without selling anything or buying?" Well, it's simple. The way I get credits is from filling out offers and surveys from trusted sponsors of Listia (I recommend using PeanutLabs, it pays the most). Sure, it takes some time, but the points really add up and if you are truly devoted to winning stuff, in less than a week you will have plenty enough to win some cool stuff. Sometimes, you can get lucky with high-paying easy offers. I am not 'staff' on this website, and do not own or influence the website in any way at all. I just love using it and have won so much stuff from it!

Banned for multiple accounts. Acceptable. But no ban appeal?

Reviewed By Nathaniel Morgan on January 11, 2016

I first started out selling Magic The Gathering cards for a few thousand credits and then I decided to leave back in 2013. I rejoined Listia with a new account and was forced to make a new account due to "an exhausted amount of phone numbers" when posting ads. When I made the new account, I made a different email and switched everything onto that account. Email, facebook, twitter, ect. It all worked out fine. But a few hours later, as I was selling more Magic The Gathering cards, my account was suspended for multiple accounts. I understand why they would do that but when I tried to make a new account, it completely blocked my access to make a new account. The thing I hate about this website is that they do not add ban appeals or any customer reasoning at all. I still have my old account but I don't see any point of using anymore considering this website is a complete waste of my time. Be cautious of this website.

You could have submitted a ticket and explained. They would have helped you.

I personally feel Listia is a great site. The only complaint I have is that the sellers are asking unreasonable prices for many of the items, but Listia if you follow the rules, is very great. I have spoken to customer support on many occasions, got responds from friendly people, ready to help, and did help me every time. Most of the Listian Members are wonderful people. I feel like I am making friends on Listia. I like Listia better than Ebay and I am a seller on Ebay too. I think if you follow the rules, and do what is right, you won't have any problems on Listia. I have been a member, I think for one year, and I plan to continue being a member because Listia is GREAT!

Grand Market Place

Reviewed By ELAINE WALKER on November 28, 2015, Wakefield, Virginia

Anything goes on listia. If you are looking for antiques or brand new never use, it is the place to be. It is free as long as you keep it free. If you do not buy credits it is free. You can sell to earn credits, fill out surveys, refer friends, earn points by buying special offers. For instance Flowers.com sometimes gives credits if you order flowers from them or TurboTax.com gives credits if you use them to do your taxes. I have bought antiques and brand new items. I enjoy the other users. As soon as I turn on my computer I am looking to see what is new and up for bidding or if I won an auction. I thoroughly enjoy the sight and I am not staff nor in any way affiliated with the owner or owners of this site.

Is it free? I question this. When you list your items on Listia, you earn points in exchange for giving your items away. You pay money out of your own pocket to ship these items to the people, and this adds up eventually to hundreds of dollars out of your own pocket. When it is all said and done, you get nothing in exchange. Because most of the sellers on this site has unreasonable point amounts for their items. For example, I have used points to buy silver bars, costing me over $40 if you translate the points into money, and I had to sell my items for points to get those points, which equals me paying well over $60 for a silver bar that you can buy online for $15.20, Silver Morgan dollars sold on this site is around $21 average to buy straight out, yet some people are marking up the points to well over hundreds of dollars. Is it really free!

Listia does not favor anyone. They need more moderators. The moderators are everyday people who use the website. They receive your help request and must read it. Then they must refer to rules and follow them to the best of their ability. If you do not agree with their findings you can appeal. I have always had positive response from the moderators. The usual response time is three days. There are many reasons an auction gets deleted. I have flagged a few auctions for different reasons. Copyright violations is the most frequent. I am sorry you had a negative experience. It is a fun site if used properly. I just fill out surveys for points and get things that way. Some things are brand new and never used.

I'm afraid that what you've said is not true. I used to believe it...i've loved it, but the moderators are not good. I had a buyer file a ridiculous dispute against me this morning and by this afternoon they decided that i was in the wrong! There is no way a moderator could have investigated the dispute that quickly; if they did investigate they would have quickly seen how ridiculous this claim was!! I had no idea that you could appeal their "findings". I would love for you to tell me how to do this. I'm truly serious, i have not found any information about appeals on the site. None of my friends or folks I speak with know anything about appeals. If this is true i will eat my words! Honestly, the moderators will not even explain to me what led to their findings. They simply Will NOT! I have tried and tried, if only to understand what the problem was. I'm off to find out about these appeals! Janet Houghaboom
