Selling blackberry

I'm selling my blackberry tour 9630 to yourenew.com. They are offering $55/ea.

You guys think that's fair or can I get more? This is the first time I've ever used one of these services. Or should I deal with ebay?

pink gel case, huh?

Anyways, if your phones are in really good shape, I would take a picture of the phones close-up. It would sell quicker.

Feel free to steal my listing format.

I've sold plenty of phones on eBay, never had an issue with a buyer, just minor problems with paypal twice.

edit: you can insert hi-res photos into the listing description by using HTML editor, this way you don't have to pay the eBay prices for photos.

For the photos, when you open your listing, go into 'revise listing' at the top to edit it. Now, in your item description, you'll see 2 tabs, one text and one HTML. Click on the HTML one, scroll down, then copy and paste HTML code from photobucket or whatever you use and the photos will show up (click back on the text tab to preview).

Other tips are: if potential buyers contact you, you can offer them a discount if they pay directly through paypal, though this might not work with your feedback. Also, if someone is interested in buying it (will often become apparent after a few back and forth messages), you can edit the category of listing of the item and save some money as eBay charges different final value fees based on category. Cell phones/electronics yield the highest charge I think. Sometimes eBay finds out and charges the difference, but this has only happened once for me.

you can use any service. As long as it is hosted somewhere on the "world wide web".

Sell them at any price you can get for them as BB's are fast becoming obsolete after iPhone and Android phones becoming so popular.

eBay's going to hell. They just started charging a percent on shipping charges (free before) and paypal is now holding all funds for 21 days before you have full access to them (or at least they told me it was all accounts, could be just mine since I find every conceivable way to dodge their charges ).

International phone sale: 8-10% final value fee, 3-4% shipping, 4% paypal fee.

In addition, they removed all listings of converted white iphone 4s as soon as they were listed (before they were available from apple). Even if the listing stated explicitly that parts were removed and replaced with others. Also there's a restriction to something like 2 iPhones at once or 2 per week, something ridiculous. Apple has eBay by the balls.
