Listia Is eBay, But for Free Stuff!

When you have something that you don't need anymore, but don't want to trash, you tend to give it away. Sometimes they go to friends, sometimes you post them on Craigslist. But there's no system based on merit or need. After all, some people need a lightly-used baby stroller more than others.

To protect users from fraud, there are a few methods of account verification that help buyers avoid untrustworthy sellers. Verification is optional but highly recommended if you want to show that you are serious about your listings.

Currently, we offer two levels of verification:

  • Listia Verified
    This means that the account has been personally verified by Listia's staff, and the account owner is in fact who they claim to be. This verification applies only to accounts that represent organizations and other public-facing entities (Listia's official account is an example), and cannot be automatically earned.
  • Verified Account, Level 1
    When a user has provided phone verification in addition to connecting with a verified1 Facebook account, they receive this first level of verification. Phone verification means that the user has successfully given us a valid phone number they have access to.

What are the benefits of becoming verified?

  • Visitors to your auctions will see that you are verified and have more confidence in bidding on your listings.

In addition to these verification levels, we also have the following tools:

  • Credit Card or Bank Account Verification
    This shows that the user has successfully verified that they have a working credit card or bank account.
  • Facebook and Twitter profiles
    Users may choose to show their Facebook and/or Twitter profile links on their Listia profiles. This is especially helpful for newer users who have not had time to build up their Listia reputation yet. Use these links to check out who the user is and help ensure that you are not dealing with a fake or fraudulent account. Users can choose to opt-out of showing these links as well if they prefer to keep things private.

Looking to verify your account? The following links may help:

Although verification does not necessarily mean a user is 100% trustworthy, it is an additional tool that can help users decide whether or not to bid on a listing. Users who have completed all the verification steps and have good feedback on the site can generally be considered more trustworthy than those without verification.

02:26

This lecture is about the Listia interface. It is an introductory material to the website and it's main functions.

05:00

A user’s feedback rating is a good way to see how reputable someone is. An example feedback rating could look something like "(20) 75%". What this means is that the user has received 20 feedback ratings where 75% of those (excluding neutral ratings and rounded to the nearest whole number) were positive. The number of feedback ratings include neutral ratings as well. When a user has a percentage of "NA" this means that this user has not received any non neutral feedback ratings yet. Feedback can be given for a period of up to 90 days following the end of a listing.

When Negative Feedback Is Not Allowed

The possible feedback options are closely tied to the state of a listing. We realize there are some scenarios where you would like to leave a negative feedback, but in these cases please explain your situation with a neutral feedback. If you leave negative feedback and your listing goes into one of the following scenarios, your feedback will be removed automatically and you will be able to leave new feedback.

Winner can't leave negative feedback for seller when:

  • Listing completes normally
    When credits are transferred to the seller from the winner without any form of dispute, the winner can't leave negative feedback for the seller. If the exchange warrants negative feedback to the seller, the winner should file a request for their credits to be returned.
  • Winner doesn't respond, no longer wants the item or refuses to pay shipping
    If a winner does not fulfill their end of the exchange (not responsive, refused to pay shipping, decides they don't want the item, misread the auction details etc.) the seller will keep the credits and the winner can't leave negative feedback for the seller. This is to protect sellers against getting negative feedback from unresponsive or uncommitted bidders.
  • Listia favors seller in a dispute
    If a winner is found to be at fault during a dispute, the seller will keep the credits and the winner can't leave negative feedback for the seller. This is to protect sellers against getting negative feedback from bidders who do not comply with the rules of the marketplace.
  • Listia settles a dispute
    As of 7/2/2012, in rare cases where a dispute is settled because it is too difficult to favor one user over the other, both users will receive equal compensation and neither user can leave negative feedback for the other user.

Seller can't leave negative feedback for winner when:

  • Listing completes normally
    When credits are transferred to the seller from the winner without any form of dispute, the seller can't leave negative feedback for the winner.
  • Winner requests a refund from seller and seller does not respond or agrees
    If a winner requests a refund from the seller and there is no reply from them or they agree, the seller can't leave negative feedback for the winner.
  • Listia favors winner in a dispute
    If a seller is found to be at fault during a dispute, the winner will get a refund of credits and the seller can't leave negative feedback for the winner. This is to protect winners against getting negative feedback from sellers who do not comply with the rules of the marketplace.
  • Listia settles a dispute
    As of 7/2/2012, in rare cases where a dispute is settled because it is too difficult to favor one user over the other, both users will receive equal compensation and neither user can leave negative feedback for the other user.

Abuse Policy

We do not edit feedback comments unless they contain:

  • Personal information about another member
  • Comments that do not reference the relevant listing
  • Profane, inflammatory, vulgar, obscene or racist remarks

The video also shows the steps of converting Bitcoins into cash as listed below:

1. Create a user account on the Bitcoin exchange

2. Go to the "Deposit" area and get your bitcoin wallet address (34 characters, alpha-numeric)

3. Give the wallet address to your Bitcoin auction seller from Listia

4. Wait for the coins to arrive (don't forget to ask for a transaction ID to check the status of the transaction!)

5. Sell the Bitcoins in the "Buy / Sell" area

6. Withdraw the cash in the "Withdrawal" area

Remember these steps apply for many exchanges, not just Bitstamp. The theory is exactly the same for all of them.
