    Is it like eBay? I want to get some BLRW eggs. I'm very good at eBay (that's actually my job... [​IMG]) but I know how people don't like 0 feedback newbies! It looks like "Cowgirl75446" sells them fairly often...

    Yes it is just like ebay. I have used egg bid several times and had good experiences. You can contact the sellers just like on ebay and ask questions. I have had no problem with eggbid.com.

    Eggbid has good and bad points. There is no fee to list and if your listing doesn't sell, which is cool. If it sells, it's a flat fee - 10% I think. You get an email either way..if it sold or didn't sell. If it sold, your buyer's info is in there. I recommend reaching out to them because they do not get an invoice from eggbid (like Ebay does). Eggbid's product line is much smaller, thus less traffic in my opinion. However, if you have enough people on there looking for what you have, then you'll do well. Egg sales vary on Ebay as well - I think it got worse since the time they knocked all of the egg auctions off. People got angry and refused to go back. However, dedicated people and large masses are always on Ebay, so sometimes you do better there.

    For eggbid, there is no template type stuff like Ebay to make your auction look nice, so you'll have to get creative and put it together before you get there and then paste it into your listing if you want a "fancy" look. They also limit to one pic, but you can do multi pics in your auction through photobucket and just use an extra pic for the one allowed. Just some thoughts..hope it helps.
