Advantages Get a bargain!
Disadvantages Some bad sellers
Internet auctions websites have become quite popular over the past few years and there seems to be more and more auction websites springing up all over the net. QXL is one of the best known British auction websites and in my opinion one of the best. Whether you're after a cheap mobile phone deal, a last-minute holiday, garden furniture or a computer at a rock-bottom price QXL has it.
How QXL works ~~
QXL is a quite unique auction website as auctions things itself as well as allowing users and merchant partners to trade on the website. I really like this aspect of QXL as buying directly off QXL or off a merchant partner (a shop selling on QXL) is a safe way to get a bargain.
QXL is also a very safe auction website compared to many of its competitors. QXL have fairly recently introduced "QXL Buyer Insurance." QXL Buyer insurance is free to all users of QXL and it covers products up to the value of £150. So if you buy a Nokia 3310 for £90 off QXL and it doesn't come or they send you a Nokia 5110 QXL will reimburse you with £90. Not bad eh?
If you want to flog something on QXL you have to pay a flat fee of 30p which is QXL call a "listing fee." And if someone wins the auction QXL make the following Winning Bid Success Fee charges:
Selection of Products ~~
So you want to splash out on something?
Well once you've seen you're ideal bargain on QXL you must first of all obviously become a member. Once you're registered and you go to the item you're after, enter the maximum bid you're willing to go up to (If you're outbid) And then enter you're username and password. You can also request SMS alerts when you've been outbid.
Safety Tips ~~
Just because QXL has insurance to protect you it doesn't mean you are completely safe. For example that insurance does not include dealings with all users on QXL, QXL's insurance does not cover dealings with users who have a 3* rating or lower.
