Q. How much does it cost?
A. On GuitarSales.com.au it only costs $4.90 per guitar submitted. We have deliberately placed a nominal cost on submission that can easily be absorbed in the cost of the guitar price.

Q. What's the difference between GuitarSales.com.au and eBay?
A. In principle there's not a lot of difference, both can be used to sell products online. However there are differences.
It's easier to find the guitar/s you're looking for on GuitarSales.com.au since it is specifically built for this purpose. Also, because at this stage we only deal with guitars, if you run a list search for a Fender guitar, you'll find only Fender guitars listed, not every conceivable Fender product that you have to then search through. You can also run searches for specific models of guitars makes, within a certain price range and made in a certain year with our advanced search option.
Also, GuitarSales.com.au does not use a bidding system, it puts the buyer and seller in direct contact.
One of the main differences is that GuitarSales.com.au is cheaper. You can list your guitar for 3 months for $4.90.
Q. What do you do with my information?
Q. How do I buy or sell a guitar on GuitarSales.com.au?
A. GuitarSales.com.au is only the "middle-man" in the location process. If you find a guitar you want to buy, contact the seller and arrange with them how the transaction will take place. GuitarSales.com.au does not operate an Escrow service, but recommends looking at Escrow Australia.
Q. Why use GuitarSales.com.au if I already have a website?
A. Good question. If you have a website that currently lists and sells guitars and has a high search rank with Google, then maybe GuitarSales.com.au is not for you. Well done. However, your website needs traffic, that's where GuitarSales.com.au can come in. As we said above, we get quite a lot of traffic through Google searches on general guitar queries. You can try Google for yourself on what you would expect people to be looking for.
If, however, you DON'T have a website, but you have guitars ... then GuitarSales.com.au might be just what you need.
