By listing your gear on our site, you are acknowledging that you have read our Fees & Services page.
In addition to selling your gear for a fixed price, you can also auction your products. If you would like to simply sell your gear for a flat fee, please click here. If you would like to set your gear up for auction, please continue reading.
In order to auction your hunting and fishing gear, you must create an account on our website. This will create your very own vendor dashboard where you can sell or auction as many products as you want to fellow outdoor enthusiasts nationwide. In your vendor page, you will be able to manage all of your products (i.e set your desired prices, edit your product descriptions, add new products, etc.). Follow these steps below to set your gear up for auction in a matter of minutes.
1.) Click the My Account tab in the menu bar or click here.
2.) If you already have an account, type your username and password in the Login box and click the Log in button.
Note: Go to step 8 to skip the account creation steps and see how to upload your products to sell.
3.) If you do not already have an account, check I am a vendor in the Register box. This will prompt you to fill out your desired account information. Your shop name will be what your vendor page is called. You can make it something simple (example: Mike’s Shop) or make it related to the products you wish to sell (example: Mike’s Hunting Knives). Make sure that you remember your email and password because it will be your login information in the future. We require your phone number so that we can directly contact you about your products if needed (we will NOT contact you unless there is an issue with one of your products posted). Once you have finished filling out your information, click the Register button.
4.) A window saying Welcome to the Marketplace! will pop up. This is where you will put the settings for your vendor page. Click the Let’s Go! button to begin.

Reserved price: The hidden lowest price that the item will sell at. If you allow the bidding to start lower than the reserved price and the final bid does not exceed the reserved price, then your product will not be sold.
Bid increment: The amount by which the current high bid is raised each time someone places a higher bid.
Buy it now price: The price at which a customer can buy your product, despite what the bidding is at. At any moment someone can purchase your product at this price.
