Start comparing

Once you've sorted your products so the ones you're most likely to buy are at the top of the list, it's time to start comparing.

Click on the name of the product you're interested in or click on the Compare Prices button. You'll be taken to a page with a larger version of the product photo as well as the product's overall rating on MrBuyGuy.com.

You can compare prices by looking further down the page, where you'll see a list of all the stores that sell the product, the price at which it's sold at each store and the average customer rating at each store.

You can see particular specifications for the product by clicking on the Specifications tab.

Clicking on the Reviews tab will allow you to see reviews from other MrBuyGuy customers.

Take some time to read the product description carefully and to review all the available information about the product before you decide whether to buy it.

What is an unpaid item?

When you buy or bid successfully on an item, you commit to pay. If you fail to make a payment,  an unpaid item case may be opened. 

If you don't pay or you fail to reach an agreement with the seller within 4 days, MrBuyGuy will record an unpaid item on your account.

This can lead to your account being restricted or suspended.

What are add ons?

An add on is a feature that doesn't normally come with your level of membership. You can purchase that feature separately, without upgrading you entire store. For example, if you have a Sapphire store and want to use a feature that is not available for Sapphire stores but is available for Ruby or Diamond stores, you can buy that specific feature.

If you’re thinking about upgrading your account but aren’t sure, buying an add on is a good way to test the benefits of an upgrade.

How do I sell an item on MrBuyGuy?

 You must  Register with MrBuyGuy before you can start selling. Once you're registered and have logged in, you can start selling by clicking on the Sell  at the top of the page.

 

This will take you to the item category page.

You will be asked to select a category for your item. Once you select the main category, you will see an option to  select a sub-categories and, in some cases,  a sub-sub-category.   If you would like to add a second category, you can do this for an additional fee by ticking 'Add a Second Category'.

After you've chosen your category, click 'Save and Continue'.

Now you will be asked to select your auction type. You can choose from one of three types.

Select 'General Listing' to auction off your item. Members will be able to bid on the item. If you like, you can set a reserve price for that auction. If you set a reserve price, the item cannot be sold at less than the reserve.

Select 'Instant Buy' to sell your item at a fixed price. A buyer can purchase the item immediately by clicking 'Buy Now'. The instant buy feature allows you to sell your item for a fixed price. The member can purchase the item at any time by simply clicking buy now.

If you place a 'Classified Ad', buyers can contact you directly via MrBuyGuy.com. You and the buyer negotiate the price and the terms of sale. You may select your buyer rather than wait for a buyer to seek out your item.  

In this example below im going to list a general listing, so il select the first option from the drop down. Directly under that there is a text field which asks you if you know the UPC, EAN or the ISBN of the product. This is typically the product bar code. If you know this enter it in and various fields will be automatically populated for you when listing your item. The item I am listing today does not have a bar code so im gonna press save and continue.
