MaxSold - Sellers Beware! Took over half of my sales

I sold my things on Maxsold and they took over 60 percent of my sales. I thought that they were going to take 30 percent but they applied the $300 minimum commission. Beware because it's risky when selling your things through them. You could lose big time. Now I'm at a loss. My advice is to have a yard sale or sell some place else like eBay if you don't want to lose money on your stuff. And then you have to wait a long time before they decide to send you the money. The bidders have your things already and you're still waiting for your little bit of change to be sent.

You knew the basic cost beforehand, and it sounds like the proceeds of your auction didn't make much more than that. I would not call that "taking over 60% of your sales".

I just sold with Max sold and yes they made more than I did on my items I had thousands of books which they lotted too many together in my opinion they only make sure you get enough to get their cut.

MaxSold - Buyer took item and then was refunded, but I did not get back my item

A buyer won a tablecloth and napkin set (lot#31) at my seller-managed auction (#25698), but when she arrived to pick up item, she said that there had been something wrong with Maxsold's bidding software because bid went way higher than her max (winning bid over $2000). But she took the tablecloth and napkins. Weeks later, I received my settlement of accounts from Maxsold and saw item was fully refunded. However, I never got back tablecloth and napkins. I have sent in my complaint (3 times now) and heard only once from Maxsold that they were trying to contact buyer. Maxsold never informed me between auction close and pick up that there was an issue with item or that buyer was not to pick up item. Tablecloth and 12-napkins are vintage Italian linen, with needlework, at least 50 years old and never used.

Desired outcome: I would like tablecloth and 12 napkins returned in original condition or properly paid for this item.

MaxSold - the worst company

All they want from you is your money. What you do next is not what's interesting to them. They do not give a crap about you. If it comes to the customer service, everything you may get from them...
