Buying and selling on Ex Basket can be fun! Just be reminded of a few quick tips on how to make every experience a safe and enjoyable one. Follow the buyer and seller journey map as your guide, and you’ll be winning in no time.



If you are Buyer

  • Is the item priced too cheap? Be cautious! Sometimes, sellers lower the price just to get your attention. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
  • Ask them all your major and minor queries such as the condition of the item, their reason for selling, and product details.

If you are Seller

  • Price your item reasonably. If you have no idea how to price the item, a quick search should give you an idea.
  • Be transparent with the potential buyer! Does your item have scratches? Has it been used rarely, occasionally or heavily? It’s better to be upfront about it!


If you are Buyer

  • Satisfied with the seller’s answers? Don’t send your money just yet! Set up a meeting with the seller for a close inspection of the item.
  • During your meet-up, inspect the item closely. Check if the seller had been honest about their answers to your queries. Don’t be shy to ask additional questions or to haggle!

If you are Seller

  • Does the buyer still seem interested? Suggest or agree to meet up with them.
  • During the meet-up, let the buyer inspect the item. This is why it’s important to be honest from the get-go!


If you are Buyer

  • Meeting up not possible? The safest way to send money is through bank transfer as the bank would have their details in case an issue rises.
  • Think twice about sending through remittance, as these are quite impossible to track.

If you are Seller

  • Meeting up not possible? The best option is to receive money through bank transfer. This reassures the buyer that you are legitimate.
  • Be wary of buyers insisting you to send the item before making a payment.

Had a good transaction? Thank your buyer/seller!
