Better than eBay

Monday, February 21, 2022

For the past 20 years, we have always marketed some of our products on eBay to gain additional exposure.   Afterall, the internet is a really big pond.  And I recognize that we are but small fish.  Who knows?  Maybe that's how you first found us?

In doing this – we are forced to contend with foreign sellers and often times have to offer free shipping or even lower prices on our eBay listings to remain competitive there.  Looking at the accounting data this year – I realized that: eBay takes a pretty big bite out of the Roadless Gear apple with their selling fees for this privilege.

This got me thinking: “if we can sell on eBay for $X and still not lose money, why aren’t we selling it on the Roadless Gear web site for the same price?”

So I tasked our software engineers to come up with a way to synchronize our pricing across ALL selling platforms.

Effective immediately – if we sell it on eBay for $X, we’ll sell it on the Roadless Gear web site for the same….OR LESS!    This includes products that carry FREE SHIPPING

Please note that this only applies to OUR listings on eBay.   We know we can’t compete with every seller out there in the world running his Maruti business out of a grass hut.   And if you want  to roll those dice….more power to ya!

But we CAN compete with ourselves.   So shop www.RoadlessGear.com with the confidence that you are getting the best possible price we can offer.

Maybe we can help you weather this current storm of runaway inflation and sky-high gas prices.  Or maybe you'll save enough to take your significant other on that vacation you’ve been promising.  Or, at least, out to dinner.   If so, tell him/her Figmo says: “you’re welcome” LOL

Thank you for shopping with us.

Samurai Steering Gear

I can't find your Samurai steering gear rebuild kit on the roadlessgear.com site.  I see it eBay but I'd rather buy it direct and save you some fees.

not better than ebay

Ebay sucks! So when I find a product there, I always check seller/manufacturer website to compare prices. I've bought and sold on Ebay and would prefer to buy direct when possible, so I was excited to see your better than ebay comment......... but very disappointed to see that while the price was the same (not better), the shipping was way higher than free. Guess I have to go back to that horrible place because the overall price is so much better. 😡

16 Valve Suzuki SideKick Geo Tracker X90 Stainless Steel Header for 1.6L 16V

I see this header on eBay, but not on your website.  I don't like eBay very much but will use it if I have too.  I would rather just buy it directly from your website.  Is the eBay listing for your header, or is it a knock off?
