All around cool guy and Editor of Positive Feedback Online, Dave Clark, just sent me an e-mail about the new Beta Positive Feedback Exchange buy, sell, trade, and discussion site and asked me if I’d help get the word out. Dave and David over at PFO are great guys, and through the Exchange site they’re trying to do a good thing for us audio nuts. Go check it out and let me know what you think:
“Positive Feedback Online announces the launch of their new audio buy/sell/trade/discussion system, the Positive Feedback Exchange. Located at http://exchange.positive-feedback.com, Positive Feedback Exchange (PFE) is a site that offers its users the ability to buy, sell, trade, and discuss audio gear. Believing that a lower-cost alternative to current used audio sales sites would be a benefit to audiophiles everywhere, the team at Positive Feedback Online decided to assemble a project group to produce PFE. Coded from the ground up with a fresh approach to an online audio buy/sell/trade/discuss system, PFE represents our creative take on what’s possible in this sector.
Under development for most of the past year, PFE is currently in a public beta test mode, allowing users to create accounts, list audio gear for sale, purchase audio gear, and participate in discussions. User feedback and suggestions are actively encouraged, and the PFE team is working to incorporate as many improvements as possible in 2013.
There is no charge for having an account at PFE. During the beta session, slated to last until May 15, all sale listings will be free.
After completion of the beta period, user accounts will continue to be free at PFE. Listings of items for sale will cost a flat fee of USD $4.00 per item per 30 days, with no additional percentages charged for items sold. We believe that this will encourage audio lovers who are selling, as well as those who are browsing for sale items, to find one another and arrange their transactions via PFE. They will find the cost structure extremely reasonable.”
I just went out and checked it out and it looks pretty nice to me.
