  • Used Music Gear Marketplace is designed to be used within Canada only, and is NOT available for selling non-music gear.
  • For all listings, please give as complete and accurate a description as possible.
  • Point out any cosmetic flaws (nicks, scratches, marks, or chip), and make remark of anything missing that a buyer might expect to receive (i.e. cables, accessories, paperwork, etc.).
  • Please include detailed photo(s) of the item you are listing. Adding photos, especially detailed ones may help you sell more quickly and also may give your listing more credibility on the Used Gear Marketplace.
  • All listings are live for 90 days from the time listed on the Used Music Gear Marketplace, and after the expiry time the listing will automatically get placed under the Inactive tab under My Listings.
  • After the Expiry time if your item still has not sold and you wish to place it back on the site, simply do so by using the re-post button.
  • Once an item is sold, make sure you and your buyer are clear about the transaction details (The exact money to be handed over, shipping costs, who pays for shipping, etc).
  • Both parties need to agree on the form of payment. One of the surest ways to avoid payment hassles is Certified Check or Cash On Delivery (COD). Other popular means of payments include PayPal, Google Pay, or Electronic Money Transfers (Interac e-transfers).
  • Prior to shipping, confirm the payment has been completed and you have successfully received all funds.
  • Pack the item safely and securely and make sure to take pictures for your records prior to shipping the item out.
  • Insure the shipment for loss and damage with the your shipping carrier (We always encourage a signature option as well). Make sure the insured amount is appropriate in case your shipment is lost or damaged during the transport.
  • Send an e-mail to the buyer specifying carrier used and with tracking details.
  • Let the buyer know immediately if there will be a delays in shipping.
  • Follow up with the buyer to make sure everything arrived on time and they are satisfied with the item received.
  • If all goes well, ask the buyer for a feedback on the purchase as it will make the flow of future sales much easier.
