More Info

CQout is a UK-based site with clearly little traction among AuctionBytes readers. Earned average or below average ratings, and few comments from sellers.

Reader Comments - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly:
Sales are few but hassle free and with extremely low fees. I feel safer selling on CQout because they vet their sellers AND buyers.
Suffers from lack of buyers and shop type facilities. Despite age site still feels just launched and unknown
made a few sales not many a decent site
Since listing I've not sold anything.


Sellers Choice
We thank all readers who took the time to rate the marketplaces. If you have comments about the survey results or the survey itself, please feel free to post them in the AuctionBytes Blog.
