(Oops - please ignore previous post!)
I'm setting up a new second hand children's clothes website, very different in look and feel to ebay and to what already exists out there and I'd be really interested to know other mums' thoughts on listing prices on these types of sites. I find the idea of being charged, or indeed charging commission on my child's clothes really offputting. I would like my listings to be priced competitively but most of all, be simple and transparent. My question is, would you find it more appealing to pay a small (under a £1) amount per listing or to sign up for a membership where for a fee each month (under £8) you can list as many items as you want. I suppose it all depends on how many things people want to list in a month but the rate my little boy's growing, I would easily be putting about ten items up a month (from my 6 year backlog of boy's clothes!)Any help, insight and advice much appreciated!

I would advise looking at the site Dashing Fashion which is an industry site that gives advise and information on the business of the childrens fashion world, plus forums for like-wise business set-ups like yours. But keep us up-to-date when its launched....
My husband and I are also launching a pre~loved baby clothes website in the new year!
The stock would be provided by ourselves and donations as this will be a charitable site aiming to fund local church charities.
We would deliver the items with payment via PayPal or upon delivery.
Is this anything like your idea Bensmum??
