Some bigger shops raise their prices before applying these discounts.. to the point where the "regular price" for some used listings are higher than buying new!

That’s classic shitty move. Could you share which stores did it so we can avoid it?

Just would like to point out that with nearly every store always giving 10% off buying a module used for 20% off msrp and then paying 3% buyer fees
Your actually saving only 8-9% buying used

For a seller it’s great
For a buyer not so much until you you get into the 300+$ range
Which is becoming more common as the average price of modules has become 350-500+

Most domestic retailers you get 10% off, free shipping, and no sales tax. Reverb you get people listing for barely 10% off retail plus sales tax plus $15+ shipping. I've been buying new stuff lately for *cheaper* than used.

For reals. Most Reverb sellers want me to pay more than the new price. No thanks.

i buy from juno...best deals on he internet (for aussies) - for doepfer anyway - i havent checked the other brands.
if i find a seller selling 1 used module....great - not much off the new price from Juno - then i need to pay shipping on 1 module...x 5...or however many modules i want.

used modules are oddly...a bad deal :(

The GBP is so bad lately that Juno (and Signal) have amazing prices even after you factor in shipping. Juno also has that thing where you can bug them for an additional 5% or so off. Got all my Xaoc and Joranalogue from there for significantly under US retail.

This.

I feel like Reverb used to be a much more vibrant marketplace a couple of years ago.
I'm not a heavy trader but I found myself moving from Muffs to Reverb for my used purchases.

But now, I'm starting to move back to Muffs.
The deals are almost always better, you get to interact with the community, and it's a little more of a treasure hunt.
Reverb still good for unique or otherwise hard to find products.

the landscape changed significantly on reverb when they started collecting sales tax on everything. (one year ago? two?)

To be fair, as a seller on Reverb, I never see how much sales tax is to be collected until after the sale. Each state has its own rate, and some are pretty high, and I think there might even be a few states on behalf of whom Reverb still doesn't feel required to collect tax. But, with the exception of a few rare or very popular items, 20% off the of the new price has always seemed like a bit of a fantasy for me, and I usually ask substantially less than that.

This is why I’m glad I found muffwigglers for sale board. I still check Reverb, but I try not to buy anything. If I do, I usually ask the seller if they’re willing just do PayPal and end the listing. Screw their fees and tax.

The sellers on Muffs for sale/trade board have definitely been the coolest and I am super grateful for them. Reverb was way cooler before the mandatory sales tax. If you happen to have a resale certificate for something (they are free and some people have them for ebay/etsy shops or whatnot) it seems you can send that to reverb to avoid sales tax as some people do just buy stuff from reverb to resell on reverb as weird as that sounds.

what about modular grid marketplace? Any reasons not to use that more for buying or selling? Any scammer stories or ways to avoid them? I’ve only bought a handful of modules but so far have always had a good experience. It seems a lot more people are on modular grid then muffwiggler.

I agree with everything people are saying post my post.
Muffs if definitely the way to go for me.
Although even here most listings are at the same 20% off msrp and not the actual buying price(unless the original buyer just didn’t attempt to ask for the 10% off)
most sellers are cool Great people (everyone I’ve worked with)
And will often knock a few more bucks off the price. If you ask. And it’s not a John in demand item.

Also I wasn’t saying the previous or this post in any derogatory manor. Just stating the situation as I’ve notice in the EUrack realm this is the norm. Were as in most other used/2nd hand markets(not vintage the vintage market is an all around hype hack imo) the used prices are more Likely to float between 30-40% off the msrp.

All that being said a savings is a saving and that’s always helpful. But sometimes for me if the savings is less then 50$ it feels nice to get a brand new item. Since in my universe that’s a rare occasion as I’m usually on a tight budget and even only a 10% savings is what makes or breaks a deal.

Still no replacement for trading here, and I've found quite a few great deals even paying cash. This also makes me inclined to pay it forward and be a friendly seller here. Certainly, if your only criteria is paying the lowest price, you may not find the absolute best deal here, but I often have. And I value the personal interactions and tips I get when I deal with people here. I don't seem to get that anywhere else except for perhaps one discord community (NYMS / New York Modular Society). :cloud:

I don't know anything about the MG marketplace (although I use ModularGrid quite a lot), so I'm curious about this topic too.

i've heard of a couple scams over the past few years. i think it's more pervasive on MG than here because here you're directly interacting with the community, and burning bridges in something your passionate over is just idiotic. MG is just a marketplace with user reputation that is hard to verify.

Since Juno came up, two warnings:

1. On two out of two orders they showed the discount (and correct subtotaling and totaling) all the way through the checkout process, and even in the downloadable order confirmation afterward, but showed incorrect math there (sub totals and beyond all failed to account for the discount,) and charged the full amount without discount.

Juno support were pleasant and quick until I showed them the math and then they stopped responding (and I have confirmation that they received my messages, because their support system replies your messages back to you.)

PayPal quickly found in my favor on the first order’s dispute and refunded me. Because (and here comes the second part of the Juno warning...)

2. Juno charges a huge fee for using PayPal...

So on the second order I used a credit card, they charged the wrong amount again, and that dispute process will be much more painful.

Beware.

A couple more Juno warnings ,is that if you are in the USA and the delivery is fedex , anything fedex calculates as worth over $800 at the time of arrival fedex will charge you 5.4% import fees and a brokerage fee. I ordered some stuff and selected Royal Mail air to avoid this as it is sometimes fast, but sometimes Juno randomly sends things fedex instead of Royal Mail so got surprise bills from fedex. I also ordered things that were $770, but by the time fedex got them a couple days later the exchange rate moved enough that fedex calculated it as $801 and bam, 5.4% import fees and a brokerage fee

Ive also had some of their shipments sent Royal Mail either never show up , or take literally two months to show up, and since they dont offer tracking with royal air you are just plain out of luck if it never shows up, or left wondering for two months.

also have had return inquiries just go dead to the point of comedy, which is always weird considering you can always get someone on the chat window to get better price quotes.

I still dig them and order from them and prices are generally good, but I imagine ordering from within the UK is a lot better.

I really wish I could give them more business. I used to buy music from them back in the day, and their modular selection is interestingly deep and varied. But I can’t trust them, not at all.

Juno aside, Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed is only Tracked or Signed in certain delivery countries. For those who might not yet know from experience: Canada is definitely not one of them.

Anyway, back to the deals!!!

I had a similar issue with Juno charging an amount over what showed up in the final checkout process. It may be partly due to the actual exchange rate you get on your bank card as opposed to the misleading currency exchange rate that gets used in their cart system--but even taking that into account, the total wasn't correct.
