Where to sell: Facebook marketplace or ebay?
I have not bought/sold on ebay for 2-3 years so don't know what the experience is now. Back then it was a hassle to list. Even buying was not straight forward.
Facebook on the other hand is hassle free. Quick to list and much more fun.
I do get a lot of responses to my ads that don't lead anywhere, don't call them time wasters as people touch buttons by mistake etc.
Those that write a proper question tend to be genuine.
On ebay people would bid, but not pay. Which was a hassle sorting out.
What are resellers on here preferanses? I only sell used stuff, not new. None of the sets are complete, still sell on facebook easily enough.. .

Certainly for high value items, it's always eBay for me. Maybe I'd consider Facebook for partially complete sets or job lots though where condition is less important.
Ebay has protections for sellers??? That's news for me...
Buyers can leave loads of negative feedbacks and still ebay sides with buyer...
FB marketplace is more hassle, far more likely to be dealing with timewasters, prices will be lower, but when it's gone it's gone. No worries about claims that it hasn't turned up or that it wasn't as described for the next 6 months. Plus you don't have to post which is another potential risk.
Basically I use FB for bigger and more valuable sets. Ebay for minifigs and anything that's easy to post and of lower value.
Price wise you can get better paid than ebay. At least I do. If I want 150 for a set, you have to get 180-190 on ebay as you have to offer free postage. I find people think I am cheap! But they forget the fees, postage etc.
True, expensive figures might not sell well.but low-level are fine. I sell quite a few at least.
