What Users Say: (From TrustPilot)
As a seller for around 3 months now, GearTrade is incredibly efficient and has a great UI to quickly sell and list items. I am very thorough with my pictures, descriptions, and pricing so I have not encountered any problems with either GearTrade or my customers. Be honest with your sales and receive honest customers in return 🙂
While this site might be good for buyers, the payment processing for sellers is unacceptably slow. I processed and shipped order and it was delivered to the buyer two days later, but I have been waiting for more than two weeks to receive payment for my order. I would not recommend this site to others!
A few years back it was decent. You could find good stuff at a decent price. Not sure what happened but when I go on there now I see people trying to get top dollar for used gear. Occasionally I’ll see people trying to sell gear for more than it would cost in a shop. I guess folks get ripped off because they don’t know any better then turn around and try to do the same to someone else.
