Alternatives to eBay

I finally sold the unwanted HTC One M8 I got on contract 6 months ago last night on eBay. It was in mint condition, I only used it for a few days then packed it away.

I was pleased with what I got for it, 297 and the buyer paid postage. However, I was a bit gobsmacked when I realised what the eBay/PayPal fees came to, 41!

So I'm just wondering what alternatives to eBay are out there and if anyone has tried them.

I sell all my iphones on facebook for sale pages, sometimes gumtree, or the free paper here called the Friday ad, but 90% of the time it's facebook

Sorry Thomas, I know you said that, but I wanted as much as possible to cover the contract costs  :'(

I've looked at the Facebook pages for my local area but they are full of scrotes, offering insulting amounts. There's no way I would've got anything like that for it.

I'll look into Gumtree for next time, thanks.

That's ok I'm only joking. Yea there are a lot of prats on the 20+ pages that I'm on but things do sell, my mate has sold 2 iPhone 6 in the last week and got the asking price

That's good. I'll consider it if I have anything else to sell. I usually trade my mobiles at CEX but they were offering nothing near what I wanted for the M8, 120 iirc.

To be fair, I have used them before to trade used mobiles and got almost as much as they were going for on eBay, without the hassle and charges.
