Why not buy and sell everything and anything, from the comfort of your own home? Look no further, Quicksales.com.au has all this and more directly at your fingertips. Your trash may now become somebody else's treasure.
Quiksales was originally called Oztion, but has recently been purchased by carsales.com.au, and now acts as a massive online trading centre. Ouicksales has over 400 000 items up for sale. Anything from Fashion and collectables, to kitchen appliances and computer gadgets.
Quicksales is free to join for buyers, all you have to do is sign up and you are ready to make some serious bargains. The best part about Quicksales is that you never have to leave the comfort of your own home to go shopping.
Quicksales is Australian based, reassuring you that you are purchasing from local rather than international sellers. The site already has over 500 000 members buying and selling from all over Australia. For those who wish to become sellers on Quicksales, fees are extremely low. A seller may also customise his or her own V-shop. This is your own individualised online shop where potential buyers can find all your items in the one place. This is an advantage for buyers who are seeking to purchase items from the one seller.
For example one of the V-shops, is called Creations by Maggie, and it belongs to a seller named Maggie. Maggie makes custom design, hand made jewellery and sells it on her V-shop. For example one of her sale items is a pink crackle bead bracelet, which is hand crafted and is selling for only $6.00.
Although sellers must be Australian or New Zealand residents on Quicksales, international buyers are more than welcome to purchase Aussie items.
