There are many factors that will increase your chance of a seller reaching you.
Add in correct spacing in your keywords in order to match you with your seller
For example, if you were looking for a 'Peugeot 208', then add 'Peugeot 208' in the keywords box,
in addition with any more words you would like to add such as 'Cheap' or 'Quick'.
Commas can also be used to seperate the main heading from additional words such as 'Cheap'.
Alerts are what connects the seller with the buyer
Once the buyer creates a need, if the buyer's keywords matches your alert with the keywords you have used
the system will send you an inbox message, and an email to alert that it has been matched.
For example, if you were looking for a buyer for your 'Sony Vaio Laptop 2012', then the system would look for a buyer with the same keywords in Britain.

A reverse auction is an auction where the seller bids to get the buyer's business, the opposite way round to a traditional auction where the buyer would normally bid for the sellers product. It gives the buyer the opportunity to say what price he can currently buy a product at and then give other sellers of the same product the opportunity to sell one to them at a cheaper price. The current auction price can be seen on line by everyone creating competition for your 'need'. You can state the starting price and a time limit for the auction normally 7 days.
We always suggest you should meet with the person when possible, if you are buying or selling something.
If possible make sure someone is with you when meeting the person who is selling the goods.
Always try and meet in a busy public place such as a coffee shop or similar place.
If you are taking cash, take the exact amount and take great care when exchanging the funds. You should always ask for a receipt or invoice.
If you are selling the goods, count the cash carefully before you accept it.
Don't be afraid to ask questions, and make sure it is exactly what you want and expected.
If you don't like the goods or are unsure, you are under no obligation and can say no and walk away.
