How to Use the Reverb App to Sell Gear Quickly

If you're getting ready to list some gear on Reverb, you should absolutely download our mobile app. Available on both Android and iOS platforms, the Reverb app is singularly designed to make listing gear quick and easy. With your smartphone in hand, you'll be able to get a piece of gear listed in a matter of minutes, leading to a quick, reliable, and secure sale.

If you've never used the Reverb app to sell gear before, the first step is to download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Today, we're going to go through some of the features and tools that make the Reverb app an essential download for anyone interested in selling their various musical things.

Take and Edit Photos Fast

A set of clear, high-quality images of the item you are selling is an essential component for any Reverb listing. Most modern smartphones come equipped with totally capable cameras, and using the app provides a direct path from photo to listing.

When making a listing, you can either choose from your photo library or take new shots on the fly. You can rotate and crop each image as you select it, so there's no annoying jumping in and out to edit your pictures.

Real Time Pricing Tips

Once you've added your pictures to your listing, you'll be prompted to add basic information like the make and model of the item. As you do this, Reverb provides recommended pricing data from our Price Guide for most popular items, helping you make an informed decision on where to set your price. These pricing estimates are based on real-time sales data and provide the most up-to-date market intel in the business.

After selecting a price, you'll be able to flesh out the details of your listing and add things like YouTube links on the next page.

Shipping Estimator

Reverb includes a built-in shipping estimator so you can set the shipping price for your listing. Just enter the size and weight of the item and the app will provide a shipping cost estimate based on the most likely shipping outcome. Like our pricing estimates, these rates are based on real market data, and while the ultimate shipping you pay when your item sells may vary, these estimates take much of the hassle out of the process.

Respond to Messages and Offers on the Go

By default, Reverb listings allow potential buyers to submit offers below the set asking price (though this can be disabled when you make your listing). Listings with offers enabled sell much quicker than those without, especially for higher-end instruments like vintage guitars or synths.

If selling through the Reverb app, you can respond to all offers and inquiries with just a few quick strokes. You can also enable push notifications, so you'll never miss a message or offer. If you start to buy and sell more gear on Reverb, staying on top of new offers will become part of your daily routine.

Keep Up to Date on the Market with the Feed

The Reverb Feed is a way to keep track of new listings that hit the Reverb market. You can use it to follow different searches, sellers, and more from a single location. Do any search on Reverb, for example, and you'll be presented with the option to add all future listings that match your parameters to your Feed.

While the Feed is mostly a tool for finding gear for purchase, it can also provide a service for savvy sellers. If you are selling guitar pedals, for example, using the Feed can help you keep on top of other listings and get a sense of the overall market. Lots of more experienced Reverb users often start "flipping" gear, meaning that they buy something, play it for a little while, and then sell it to move onto something else. For these sellers, the Feed is an absolutely central part of this process.
