Henry is going on the potty now & I have way to much for Grace. Should I list on EBAY, WAHMCHICKS, the TP, DIaperswappers....???<br><br>
I really need to clean some major house! Where are you having the best luck?

I sold 3 FBs recently. I listed all 3 on Diaperswappers first. 2 sold very quickly (same day). The other one sat there and sat there (it was butter yellow - I guess everyone else was like me in not loving that color!). So the 3rd went on Ebay. I got $1 less than what I was asking for it on Diaperswappers. Plus there was the $0.80 ebay fee.<br><br>
In the future, I think I'll do the same thing - offer on Diaperswappers (and the TP - you can do both at the same time), and whatever doesn't sell, take it to ebay. You have more control over the price on DS/TP, plus you don't have all the fees and you don't risk selling it for less than you want it to go for, etc.

I find wahmchicks very slow, but I guess the only was to change that is to use it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I agree with pp, you can list things on tp and swappers at the same time, just update promptly when items are gone. Ebay is good, sometimes you get great auctions, I have seen fb go for almost new prices, unfortunately there are all the fees to consider, (plus for me I have never sold anything on ebay so worried that people wouldn't buy).

I've sold many on ebay, a few on babycenter and some motherease on motherease.com. I think it depends on what you're selling. Now I'll have to check out diaperswappers....I've never been there!

I have only good experiences to report using Diaperswappers - really good, honest people to work with on there.<br>
I just qualified for the TP and have recently purchased some items, so we will see how it goes!

Split it up, you may have two different audiances at two different places.<br>
I like both for different reasons.<br><a href="http://www.wahmchicks.com" target="_blank">www.wahmchicks.com</a> is established you will have many seasoned diapering mamas floating through there for your higher end products.<br><a href="http://www.diaperswappers.com" target="_blank">www.diaperswappers.com</a> will also turn a sale for you. Newer, nice group of mamas but may or may not be your Hyena audiance.<br><br><br>
Neither charges a fee and what does not sell at one can be relisted at the other.<br>
I think ebay is really slow right now to be shelling out fees personally.

They've been having database problems today. Sometimes I've had to hit refresh (and select "OK" if it asks you to resend the POST data) several times before it came up.
