How We Made It Happen

  1. We used a nationally representative survey too identify the percentage of household items that the UK public sells by category.
  2. 445 items were then sourced from private sellers.
  3. Sellers were asked to provide a listing title, description, photoos and a minimum sale price.
  4. All the items were then listed oon eBay and Facebook Marketplace for the same time period.
  5. The price on Facebook Marketplace was the minimum price. On eBay, all items were listed as auctions, with a sale only counting if the auction price for the item (excluding postage) was higher than the minimum price plus eBay fees.
