Online Coin Auctions at USA Coin Book
At USA Coin Book, we try to cut down on the fees as much as possible so sellers can maximize profits in coin auctions. In fact, we have absolutely NO listing fees whatsoever, NO listing upgrade fees and an affordable 2% final value fee. At other large auction sites such as ebay, the final value fees can regularly top 9% and this is on top of flat listing fees that have to be paid whether your product is sold or not. The bottom line here is that USA Coin Book makes money only when you do!
When you create an account with us, you get your own exclusive coin book with an URL format like: "http://www.usacoinbook.com/members/(username)/". So if you ever want to quickly show off your collection or inventory, such as at a coin show, coin dealer, business card or a discussion forum for example, you can direct them to a short and easy-to-remember page URL where they can view your coin book of collections, auctions, sales and wishlist.
There are a number of features for listing coins up for auctions online. The first one is that sellers can list their products for a duration of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (1 week), 15 or even 30 days (1 whole month!) with no additional costs. Sellers can even set a reserve price as well. If bidders do not meet the reserve price, you can view the list of bidders after the auction and choose to accept the highest offer anyways! If a bidder does not follow through with their payments, you can choose to accept the second-highest bidder. We even have a feedback and reputation system so you can check up on members.
A huge advantage with listing coins at USA Coin Book is the laser-fine targeted marketing potential. Our site is designed so that you can choose to list your product under a specific coin page. For instance, if you have a 1955 Double Die Obverse Lincoln Wheat Cent, you can choose to list it here: 1955 Double Die Obverse Lincoln Wheat Cent, which is a specific and permanent page which contains lots of keywords and your coin will be listed here (and also automatically in the Lincoln wheat cent category, small cent category and the Home Page). Why is this good? Because your auction listing will appear on a permanent page, which allows people to easily find the page through major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing when they search for "1955 Double Die Obverse Lincoln Cents for Sale" for example. And your coin will be cataloged right into this page where a targeted audience will see it and find exactly what they were looking to buy!
Getting started - How to put coins up for auction
Step 1: The first thing all sellers must do is Register an account with us.
Step 2: After you have logged in, click My Coin Book >> Auction. Next, select the categories from the drop down menu. On the next page, choose your coin from the table and click the "Auction" link on the far right side of that corresponding item. Fill out and submit your product details to go live. That's it!
Note: A PayPal ID is required in order to sell products. That way buyers can instantly and safely purchase the products at any time. If you are a dealer or someone who is selling a lot of products, you can store your PayPal ID into your profile one time and it will automatically be entered into each form thereafter instead of manually typing it in for each item you want to sell. To do this, click My Coin Book >> Edit Profile and enter it in.
Important: Please read our Fees Policy and Information Page before selling.
