Front Range Anglers offers a trade-in program through
which we arrange the sale of your used gear on Ebay. You'll receive the
profits from your sale in store credit.
How does Ebay work?
If you've never used Ebay before, here's how it works. Ebay is an online
auction house. Items are listed online with a photo and description
and offered for bid. The seller determines the starting bid, which can
be anywhere from $1 on up. You also have the option of setting a "reserve
price". That is the minimum that you will accept for the item.
For example, you might have an old Sage fly rod to sell. You can start
the bidding at $10, but you can set the "reserve price" to
$100. As people bid, they will be notified that the reserve price has
not been met until they are bidding at or over $100.
Prospective buyers have 7 days to bid on the item. At the end of the
7-day period, the auction closes and the highest bidder wins the item.
Shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer, and the cost is added
on to their total at the end.
What will FRA do for me?
We will take care of the entire process of selling your item on Ebay,
including any Ebay fees. You simply bring your item in and fill out
our registration form. We will photograph and list the item and monitor
the auction. When the auction is complete, we will collect the payment
from the seller, ship the item, and issue you a certificate for store
credit in that amount. You'll be notified by email or phone when the
process is complete. Then you go shopping!
Your store credit must be used within 30 days of the finalization
of the Ebay sale.
