Douglas Edwards's Yardsale

Douglas Edwards's Yardsale

Yep, that's my name!

I'm currently trying out a service called Yardsellr.com. It's a "social eBay" and works off the premise that your Facebook and other social site friends want to buy your stuff. You can also use Twitter and tweet about the items you have for sale. And, of course, you can buy stuff as well.

Some of the perks:


  • You get points in various ways that can be used for purchases.
  • There are no listing fees whatsoever that the seller pays. Yardsellr adds a small transaction fee to the buyer's total.
  • You don't need to have a PayPal account (but if you do, that's cool!). Yardsellr will pay you by check if you want.
  • You can actually connect to many other social sites as (including Blogger).
The only downer that I can see so far is that you can't edit the listing after you've created it. You have to delete it and start again.

Anyway, here's the stuff that I have for sale (as of Sunday 5/8). You can check it out here.
