The site will open for members to sell their own puzzles soon.

I have been doing a lot of research in order to decide what type of software would do the work. Although the platform will remain the same, the appearance of the site is going to change.

I hope it will be for the better.

What this means is that other users will be able to open their own “stores” at Rare Puzzles, list their own items, set their own prices, and ship to whatever countries they wish.

There will be some initial restrictions though:

  • Members will need previous approval through a simple request form.
  • Products listed will be reviewed for approval as well, at least in the beginning.
  • Only Factory Sealed and Sealed Bag puzzles will be listed for now.
  • Only out of catalog puzzles will be listed.

It will be something similar to listing them on Ebay, but without insertion fees, without time limitations, and for half of Ebay’s commissions.

The payment preferred method will still be PayPal, since it provides the best protection for buyers and sellers.

Terms and Conditions pages will be inserted covering all these details.

And there will be some challenges, like creating highly customizable shipping options, or dealing with currency.

However, we will work it out.

Suggestions and ideas will always be welcome at rarepuzzles@gmail.com.
