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.

This site used to be a good site with honorable people where you rarely got cheated but they've changed their policies in a way that benefits "new" users who want to scam you and since you can't leave negative feedback, they can bully and harass and then leave "neutral" feedback that leaves a permanent stain on your record. And support is a joke. They just give you canned answers and don't do anything for their loyal users that helped them grow to who they are now.
I have belonged for. 4 months now, liking the no fees for listing and shipping like eBay charges....I have sold 80 auctions and won about the same and ship for free...occasionally I pay for shipping for what I win if it's only a few dollars...been scammed a few times where I didn't get my item and had my credits returned..now it looks like I'm facing a scammer where I will lose my shipping payment....there is no getting that back as you will on eBay...the customer service here is a joke...generic responses which skip the issue you have asked about entirely...no doubt the use a list they hope is close the an answer...the feed back process is unfair too..you can get a neg or neutral without having to justify as to why...eBay makes you explain why you will be leaving that feedback...and people get to insult your item or your asking price right to you face...I mean really....a bit too much interaction I feel is unnecessary when so many jerks are out there....
whats with the shipping
Why is it that if your an american you can get free shipping but if from Canada you have to pay shipping costs. I don't mind paying the extra but every time I mention it I get rude comments and ignorant people Canadians don't use this site as everyone is trying to get more from shipping and not being fair. I take it as a insult and really get fed up with yanks
LISTIA IS BAD BUSINESS TAKING YOUR INFO<!!
this site withholds rules and terms until you join then looks for ways to defraud your account and steal your credits to up bid there products or products they can make the money on!! Read the opening page then you too will see no rules posted at easily to find spot (BAD BUSINESS PRACTICES)
I have received tons of free stuff from this site. I only bid on things that come with free shipping and I make sure the auction's owner has a high rating so I don't have any problems with people playing games. It's always free to list an auction and you earn 'bidding money' by either completing offers or by having your own auction. It's all very easy and fun. I enjoy it a lot :)
