[NSW] Which Store to Trade-in/Sell Camera Equiment?

I think it's time I start making money from my hobby of photography.
And the only way I know I can do it is by selling off my camera equipment :)

If you have had some experience in trading your cameras and selling to a store (instead of an individual on say gumtree), I would love to know if you had a good or bad experience and any tips or considerations…

    You'll make waaaay more on GumTree. Just follow the OzBargain code of practice.

    What sort of stuff is it? If it's consumer level most camera shops won't offer you a thing.

      Remember post it to Russia if selling on gumtree.

    • It's couple of 2015 Sony alphas.. was frustrated with gumtree offers but maybe should wait for lockdown to be over as won't trade/sell till it ends anyways. And serious buyers may only bother looking once it happens.

    I've always done well with eBay. Not sure about it now with the new payment system though. Photography stuff is very popular on there.

    Pro gear, try ocau trading forum.
    Mid to entry, gumtree - and for the love of god CASH ONLY

    • Just checked ocau. that place is dead now for photography stuff.

    Yep, as above. Scumtree, Fleabay, FB marketplace will get you a better price if you can sift through the army of lowballers. Cash on pick-up (or post only if you receive the money in your bank account NOT PayPal beforehand).

    • And FB photography for sale groups, sometimes specifically to the brand.

    Gumtree, but cash on pickup only. Camera stores will pay verrrrry lows because they then have to charge GST, make a profit etc.

  • What r u trying to offload?

    • Couple of oldd sony alphas

      • Ah, ok… Not that I need any more gear… but… Was going to see what you had if things were with a Nikon badge!
