Quick Sale and Great Experience!
It was great selling on this website! I was wanting to get a pixie cut for a while and thought it would be nice to get a few bucks out of the hair as well.
I was willing to sell an 11\" ponytail of my straight black hair that was 3.5\" thick. I listed it at $150 OBO which was probably undervaluing it a bit, but I wanted it gone.
Within a few hours, I\'d already gotten several offers though a couple of them seemed a bit suspicious ($800 to cut it into a military style?).
I waited a few days until I got an offer of $200 plus shipping. I then negotiated up to $240 for extra videos and pictures.
The whole transaction was a breeze. The buyer paid first through PayPal (of course) and they laid out clear and concise instructions for exactly what they wanted from me.
Now I\'ve got a little more spending money and the hairstyle I\'ve wanted! I\'ll definitely be back next time I need to sell some hair!
I posted my ad on Aug. 10th and sold it on Aug. 21st for $300. Way less then I wanted for it but I helped someone out and got a cute new hairstyle:)
As for the site, I give it 5 stars. There where many inquiries I received that seemed a little off so I contacted the site support for help and always received an email back in the same day. They were always patient and helpful. Also I adhered to the site guidelines as far as what to watch out for concerning scams and weeded out a few scammers immediately. I strongly suggest using caution in dealing with anyone who replies to your ad. Safety before money.
