Reverb LP (new online marketplace)

Recommended Posts

Looks like discogs has some new competition for buying and selling vinyl online.

https://lp.reverb.com/

 

Its run by the same people that run Reverb.com (as a guitar player, one of my favorite places to buy gear), but I'm really struggling with why they launched this. It seems a bit more confusing to navigate than Discogs, but also has a much lower selling fee (2%).  Also, on a few of the releases I've looked up, it looks like they've imported a lot of data directly from discogs. A real head scratcher for me.

I've listed my records on there twice, both times for a several month stretch, and never made one sale. I don't have a huge amount of records I'm selling but I usually have a good 60-100 records for sale at any one time which is enough to get consistent sales on every other marketplace. After months of no sales but constantly having to edit my inventory, I gave up both times and unlisted everything.

I'm curious whether their user base heavily leans towards certain genres? Indie rock and pop punk/emo did not do well at all, in my experience. The site's look and feel makes it seem like the users would be older and into classic rock but that's an uneducated guess.

I’ve definitely snagged some great deals on their 20%-30% off weekends. 

I've never tried to sell anything, but agreed that the sales are great. I've also found a good amount of records that aren't listed on Discogs, so it's a good place to check for stuff sometimes.
