Hi all,

My Lx200gps isnt selling too well right now in the classifieds, so I was thinking about putting up an auction. I didnt want to use eBay because of the amount of scammers there. I think an auction would help sell it as I need to sell fairly quickly to fund a new mount for the new OTA I have.

Anyway, I have never posted an auction on A-mart before, and I couldnt find any terms or policies specifically for auctions. I was mainly wondering if these auctions work like eBay's do. Firstly does A-mart take a portion of the selling price like eBay does? And are the rules of the reserve price the same (i.e. if my reserve is not met, I am not obligated to sell the item)? And finally, can the $4 fee for a reserve auction be payed with paypal? Thanks! If theres anything else a first time auctioner should know, inform me. Thanks alot!
