I have spent over 100 hours looking for viable alternatives to selling
computer stuff. Vintage does not have its own place. Bonanza.com is gaining
popularity, but it is not really IT or electronics oriented. Pricewatch.com
and similar sites only deal in reasonably current equipment. VCF does have a
marketplace section, but (and please don't take offense) it is so
rudimentary, and the listings are so outdated, that is does not seem to be
of much use. How do you find what is still available? True auction or
ecommerce software would eliminate stale WTB and WTS listings. There are
many free places to send XML product lists to be added to their comparison
shopping engines, and all of those are very well indexed by Google. If you
make it easy for people to see that it is an open place to buy and sell, 1
page registration, etc., then it will probably grow quite well. If you
really want it to grow, you can get free press releases with many of the
computer related online magazines and communities. If you don't try it, you
will never know J
