I agree. I see lots of guys bidding low dollars on high dollar items then going away. No serious bids.

I will like to see the retailers go away using GB as a retail store such as Wholesalehunter and lg-outdoors. Retail prices plus high shipping cost.

This will prove interesting. I have sold a few over the years on GB and bought a few as well. Like others I get very very PO'd about guns that have been on the site for years with endless relists. Look up completed auctions on particular item and then see how long an over priced item has been for sale. I actually don't even look at reserve auctions at all and use their filter to remove those from that I look at.

PS. I will have to try to list something and see what the new fee's and process will be like and decide if Guns International is where I try to sell a few items. Seems almost like a better way to go these days.

The credit card issue is going to present a real problem for the casual seller with a desire to sell one or two guns out of a collection. I have some guns I was considering listing, but I'm not going to qualify to take credit cards to do so.

Nowhere does GB mandate credit cards. They will be offering a reduced fee structure to those that do accept them but you can still utilize other payments.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

I sell a few guns on gunbroker, mostly lower dollar, lower condition stuff. I just recently sold four guns to three different bidders which had been listed a very long time. One went to a large dealer who will resell it I would think. The market is really slow. Price is only one factor. Low interest and high inventory is not helping. I do not take CCs nor do I want to. I will be looking at other options including gunsinternational and using my own website in a more efficient manner. I see very few of these changes being beneficial to me. It will certainly change the site. If you look at the current fees taking the example they use, a 1500$ gun has 58$ in sales fees currently and they plan on raising that. Multiply that by several guns and all in the sudden you have a bunch of options for selling your inventory that are more appealing.

It's really going to change the marketing plan for one Kansas dealer who has had some doubles listed for at least ten years. As a buyer I'm looking forward to a cleaned up site.

GB earns money from buyers because it's the buyers money that makes the transaction happen. Sellers surely figure their fees into the price of the gun. Any businessman would. There are few really great deals on GB once you figure price + shipping + transfer.

Sellers seem to operate under the mistaken assumption that the seller is the only one who makes the system function.

A while back I listed two DHE 20-ga. Parker Repros, one on gunbroker.com, the other on gunsinternational.com. Both were listed at $3800 each and both sold within a couple days. It cost me ~$63 in fees to sell the one gun on GB and $12 in fees to sell the other on GI.

Why would I want to sell another gun on GB?
