Idle-Assets specializes in liquidating excess inventory, floor models, overstocks, selling obsolete or distressed goods, as well as collections, estates and household goods.

Let's face it. We all have stuff lying around. Lots of it. Getting in the way or collecting dust and taking up space that could be used for something more productive.

Idle-Assets specializes in handling the various tasks involved in the selling process, so you can focus on your business or your life.

Idle-Assets is owned and operated by Rick Gagliano, owner, proprietor, photographer, copywriter, correspondent, mail room, shipping and delivery guy. That's him, below, on the left.

Rick has been selling online for more than four years - on eBay, Yahoo, Amazon, and various other sites and his own website. He thrives on this stuff. In fact, Rick's been at it so long and done such a good job, there are even three pages devoted to him in Adam Cohen's book about eBay, The Perfect Store.

All you have to do is email or call Rick (585-458-0498) and describe what you have to sell. Rick is one of the top innovative sellers on the internet and an expert on ad copy and customer service, so you are assured a quality selling experience. Idle-Assets will not only sell your items, but also take photos, write the description, handle communications, facilitate payment and handle packaging and shipping. Once your items are sold, he'll send you a check. Pretty simple. You just sit back and collect money.

Our commision rates vary by the type of items we sell. There are also ebay fees and PayPal payment processing fees. Other than those, there are no other hidden costs or fees.

Ebay charges the following fees:

eBay listing fees can start out as low as 30. Idle-Assets will recommend the best listing strategy for selling your item. Generally, we list items with low opening prices which generate fees between 30 and $3.00

eBay also charges a final value fee for successful auctions. Final value fees will be deducted from the auction winnings.

Closing Value Final Value Fee
$0 - $25 5.25% of the closing value
$25 - $1,000 5.25% of the initial $25 ($1.31),
plus 2.75% of the remaining closing value balance ($25.01 to $1,000)
Over $1,000 5.25% of the initial $25 ($1.31),
plus 2.75% of the initial $25 - $1000 ($26.81),
plus 1.50% of the remaining closing value balance ($1000.01 - closing value)

Idle-Assets will always give the selling client an itemized receipt of all fees charged including commissions.

PayPal Payment fees: Many buyers pay with checks or money orders and there are no processing fees connected; however, many more pay with PayPal, eBay's online payment processor. Idle-Assets is a Verified Business Merchant with PayPal and therefore pays the lowest fees: 30 + 2.2% per transaction. There are some more details, which are covered on separate pages on this site.
