i often check webstore.com. some models and stuff. ive also sold some on their and its free.
Sellers see no buyers, so do not list much, thus leaving possible buyers with little options, so they do not stop by, thus again, sellers are not seeing the buyers, and the circle continues.
Ebay was so fast at growing, they ate up the initial market share, and it would be VERY hard for any other online auction to now ever offer the same "marker place" of buyers and sellers. Would be nice for other options.

everything is going to struggle against ebay. i was just answering his comment about any other sites. i just like webstore because no fees except when you sell something paypal is the only charge.
Unfortunately Webstore is still small. Although it's ranked in the top three of the auction sites it's still struggling against eVilBay.

Hundreds, even thousands of other special interest sites offer classifieds sections. There is no reason that MCM could not also offer this, other than the will to do so. It's a little ridiculous to have to use the Trading and Wanted sections to arrange "trades" (sure it's a trade! it's trading plastic for paper ).
Gregg and Harry...if the reasons you listed are why there is no classified section in this place, you're wayyyyyyy over-complicating it. But, if that's the case, that's your choice. We can play along and keep the $ signs in the pm's.

Can somone post to other parts of the fourm to inform others what's for sale or buy outs?
I don't think it's a good idea to post an advertisement for something you have listed there, on eBay, or anywhere else.

I pulled off items on emodel cars and I posted one item on webstore.com to see how that goes. I'll just keep putting the word out on yahoo groups and face book like I've been doing in the past and believe it or not I sold more that way and so did others. I'm not looking to make a killing on selling and I'm not looking to make others rich.
I wish all of you luck selling your items how ever you do it.....

I have looked at alternative selling groups but they seem to favour Paypal and then I have the same problem with getting my money. The last money order I got was wrong and it took too long to get it corrected. I now sell locally via a Canadian site called Kijiji and I do cash only pickup sales.
