Quick sales within minutes of the ad being published are not uncommon. A good photograph + a good price = a good quick sale.
Gold Coast Shooters Supplies - Placed 20 ads for firearms with us on 5/8/13 and had sold 10 guns within the first 3 days. Very happy customers
August 4, 5, 6 & 7th - Of the 200 ads on the Whats New page 66 had been marked as sold. That is one third of all the ads. It is still amazing to us how effective the web site is in helping our customers sell their firearms
Peter emailed to say - Thanks usedguns.com.au. The money has been received (sale finalised). I would like to let you know that I had 8 emails and 4 calls within 15 minutes of the rifle going up on your site and the first guy got it. Thanks for the service
Michael emailed to say - Hi David, very pleased to inform you the Blaser is now sold! That`s three sales and two purchases from "looking for" ads. Feel free to ask me for a testimonial !
James emailed to say - Sold the Enfield, could you change status to SOLD for me? Can`t believe it ! I spent the last year trying to sell these on grantsmilitaria and other boards, no luck and lots of people farting around with "oh I see these for $100 down the road etc etc" and I stick it on here, I`ve had about 8 phone calls since 6am and at least 9 emails! Bloody brilliant site mate! =)
Romano from Sydney emailed to say - "I listed 4 hand guns today. Can you remove the Pardini 9mm and the Smith & Wesson from the site as they are sold, S & W at about 1.30 pm and the Paradini at 4.30 pm." (These ads were uploaded to usedguns.com.au at 10.30a.m and SOLD in 2 & 6 hours)
Mark from QLD emailed to say -"Hi, Just to let you know that the 32 WCF Winchester lever action that I advertised with you yesterday afternoon sold this morning. Great site !"
Joel from ACT emailed to say -"Do you have a comments board because I was blown away by how good your site is and I now check your Whats New section frequently. I only listed my rifle Sunday night. Received two emails that night, one inquiry, one offer to buy via lay-by and payments. Received two calls Monday morning, the second call was to buy, no questions asked (Sold), then first caller called again but too late. I didnt think I listed too cheap a price, your site is just great"
