Seller Reviews


Read what hundreds of happy sellers have to say about their selling experience.

  • Jason

    Overland Park, Kansas 

    Jon gave me a fair offer for the item I eventually sold to him. After I agreed to sell, he promptly provided me with a pre-paid Fed Ex shipping label. I was a little nervous about sending off the item, while waiting to receive payment. However, Jon confirmed receipt of the item and immediately e-mailed me the payment via an e-check...(they also offer paper checks via the mail). I never dealt with e-checks, and neither had my bank, so they took a little longer than normal to process it, but everything went fine. Jon and 2nd Markets were very professional and easy to work with. I will definitely work with 2nd Markets on other sales in the future.

    Anthony, New Mexico 

    I was extremely pleased with the courtesy and promptness in which Jon Warren from 2nd Markets Corp handled my precious metals transaction. The bid was very fair and I received my payment promptly. I would recommend Jon and his company to anyone who has items for sale.

    Dawn Debbe

    Hamden, Connecticut 

    My experience was exemplary. Jon does everything he says he will. I made a mistake and was a less than stellar customer. Yet, he was gracious, kind, and respectful through the entire experience. I repeat again, he does absolutely everything he says he will. As I continue to downsize I will do business with him again with surety that I am in the best of hands.

    Thomas Weinheimer

    Nooksack, Washington 

    I was very impressed with the professionalism shown by Jon Warren during my recent transaction. I heartily recommend using his company!

    Steve Hughett

    Lubbock, Texas 

    It was a pleasure doing business with 2nd Markets. The entire process was very easy and I was able to make good money on the items I sold.

    Catherine B.

    Bluffton, SC 

    It was a pleasure working with you — a very easy process from start to finish. I will definitely be contacting 2nd Markets again, very soon, to sell more collectible items.

    Pat Klansko

    Kentfield, CA 

    It was very easy to do business with 2nd Markets. I had not done this sort of thing before so was rather leery of proceeding. The level of communication throughout the entire process was really great. I would use your service again.

    Mark Wasserman

    Philadelphia, PA 

    Thanks for a quick and easy transaction. 2nd Markets is quick, responsive and met my expectations in all respects. A pleasure - truly!

    Serge Pozdnyakov

    Westfield, MA 

    It was a good business with 2nd Market, everything was simple and successful!

    Glenn Miller

    Bridgeview, Illinois 

    A very nice transaction, as well as a honest and fair price. The whole transaction was seamless and very timely. I have a few more items I plan to offer for bids. Thanks again for a great experience. Glenn.

Why Not Sell on eBay Yourself


Many folks sell to us after giving eBay a try. Selling on eBay is no picnic. And it is not free: eBay takes a large commission and forces you to accept Paypal, which also takes a fee for handling your money.

Then there are all the trips to the post office, living up to eBay's seller standards, and having to refund buyer's money when they decide to return something they bought (eBay forces you to accept returns for any reason.) It is a full-time job. Sell to us and get almost as much as selling direct to collectors, but without the hassle.

Oh yes, and then there is the IRS. Ebay reports your sales to the IRS on form 1099. We do not file a form 1099 on you. We pay our taxes, but we do not report each individual collection we purchase. It is not required.

When you sell to us, you have one simple, fast, clean transaction, without starting a new business!
