Tradera has very low traffic and volume. There is no 'bidding' site that is actively used in Sweden. Most folks sell stuff on Blocket and instead of bidding just wait until they get the price they want or negotiate.

I have purchased 3 times on Tradera in the past 6 months and have been very disappointed with the level of customer attention the sellers have. The last example was that the seller advertised the object with a delivery cost of 200kr with bussgods. I won the auction (the only one bidding smile.gif ) and then he refused to delivery unless I actually paid him 380kr frakt!
I complained to Tradera and they said that they can do nothing and that I must negotiate with the seller!!

Another time the delivery took 6 weeks from inside Sweden and it also arrived damaged with the seller refusing to take it back.

Buyer beware on Tradera!!

My partner and I have used Tradera hundreds of times and have never had a significant problem, indeed we have bought and sold many things with ease. Think you've just been unlucky, John.

I must have been very unlucky! Will never use it again. My last experience where Tradera customer support effectively refused to assist me other than telling me to negotiate with the seller who lied on the auction is proof that they (Tradera) don't give a hoot. No wonder it attracts so little traffic.
