New auction website for Subbuteo

Post by chickster25 »

Hi all,
After using an auction website for many years, I realised how much commission I was paying on items, especially some exclusive collectables that go for a higher price.

To help out collectors and fans of the hobby, I have created a new auction site called https://www.offtrackbids.co.uk

My website is designed to specialise in the collectables market, such as Subbuteo, Slot cars and die-casts etc.. It is free to list (unless you choose an upgraded listing) and sellers fees are fixed at £1 per auction. If there is enough interest in the site, it could be the new place on the Internet to find Subbuteo items.

It's early days so would appreciate any support and any feedback is always appreciated, good and bad ;-)

Thanks for the comments.

I think you are right Dave, but more people are getting frustrated with their sellers policies and managed payments, so perhaps there is a space for a small niche Subbuteo auction website to exist for dedicated hobbyists :clap:

And if you list something worth a lot, you will still only pay £1 commission on offtrackbids.co.uk, rather than 10% commission.

I hope this will attract a some more exclusive items onto the site, which will in turn, attract more buyers to come looking for those hard to find but highly collectable items....
