Standard Seller Fees FAQs

  • Can I just sell my item without opening a store?

    Yes. You do not need a store to sell products.  We know that some sellers just want to list and sell an item quickly.  Just click on SELL , load your images and provide an item description.  The whole process takes 1-2 minutes from a mobile device.

  • How does Make Offer work?

    This a great option if you want to get the offers rolling and you’re not sure what the going rate is for your item. We have threshold settings to help you manage the offers with automatic responses and the ability to keep lowball offers away.

  • When should I use Escrow.com vs. Paypal?

    There are many variables in making this decision and I would suggest researching both options thoroughly.  Escrow is designed for exchanging higher-end items (above $500 in value) that merit the security and peace of mind that Escrow.com delivers. Typically, customers use the service when the buyer and seller are unknown to each other, for purchases made on auction sites, classified ad sites, business-to-business e-commerce sites and online merchants.

  • What are your fees?

    Joining Superphonica is free. There are two basic fees: (1) a selling fee and (2) a payment processing fee. It costs nothing to list an item and it stays active until it sells.

    Once an item sells, there is a 1% selling fee paid to Superphonica on the final sale price (we do not include shipping costs in this calculation). There is no minimum fee and the maximum is $349.

    The payment processing fees are independent of Superphonica and vary by organization. PayPal and most credit cards charge 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. International payment processing for PayPal is 4.4% per plus a fixed fee based on currency received.

    We also offer integration with Escrow.com. Their processing fees range from 0.89% – 3.25% depending on the amount of the transaction.

  • What’s the difference between transaction fees and selling fees?

    Transaction fees are independent from Superphonica and depend on your payment processing company (Escrow.com or PayPal). We follow 100% transparency in all buying and selling transactions so here are no hidden fees. The selling fee is 1% of your final sale price and is the only fee Superphonica collects. That’s it.

  • Do I owe Superphonica anything before a listing sells?

    No. Listing fees are old school. No money changes hands until you sell something.

  • How do you help sell products?

    Our easy-to-use and secure Multi-Vendor Marketplace allows standard sellers, dealers and manufacturers to sell their products. We help bring buyers and sellers together who share a common interest of High-End audio. We’ve also leverage our industry leading review and forum site from the past 10 years. Furthermore, we promote our marketplace on social media and internet using paid and/or organic methods to engage buyers and sellers.
