I had posted 2 guitars for sale on Reverb. The Taylor sold locally from my Craigslist ad. The Fender sold yesterday off Reverb. I had posted both guitars for local pick up only. Friday night I increased my asking price on the Fender to include the Fender branded ($125 retail) gig bag (really super bag) and added $10 to help with shipping. I was amazed not a hit for a month at 275 but as soon as I raised the price and added shipping bang. Sold!
I had received an email from Reverb last week which I half heartedly scanned but today it pulled me back. Reverb is closing down the App on April30!
Did it say why?
They said there are platforms that focus solely on sales. Here it is
Hmmm . . . that's interesting. I haven't tried selling on Reverb but I've been thinking about it. I sold all kinds of stuff on eBay for years, but shipping is a PITA. Didn't realize Reverb had a local pickup only option.
Lucky that I had a guitar box here that it got into!
Interesting, so they are spending too many resources on it.
