discogs marketplace?

is this usually OK to use? looks to have a much better selection than ebay, or does anyone know of any good alternatives?

(sorry if this has been asked before, couldn't find anything when I searched?)

vain_bowers, Monday, 29 December 2008 16:58 (twelve years ago) link

discogs imho is in the same league as Gemm and Musicstack--generally a slightly more esoteric selection, but the pitfalls and price-gouging remain the same. (i.e. it's a number of individual sellers and so it's dicey no matter what. I guess that's why there's a feedback system? I've never used discogs.)

ian, Monday, 29 December 2008 17:07 (twelve years ago) link

i assume you're looking for vinyl? discogs is usually fine, but i wouldn't buy anything labeled below nm-, unless you've scanned the seller's profile and s/he seems like a saint

unclejam79, Monday, 29 December 2008 17:34 (twelve years ago) link

yeah just vinyl and CDs that you can no longer get elsewhere really, thanks for the warning!

vain_bowers, Monday, 29 December 2008 17:46 (twelve years ago) link

i started using it a few months ago and have found it to be pretty great in general though i would agree about not buying below mint. out of about 30 purchases i've only had to deal with one person who ripped me off. i now look on discogs before ebay if looking for a record.

stirmonster, Monday, 29 December 2008 18:11 (twelve years ago) link

I was able to score a highly OOP release from overseas, and as long as you have PayPal, you're quick, and you're picky about feedback ratings, you should be fine. (same goes with Gemm and the like.)

soyrizo headache (Mackro Mackro), Monday, 29 December 2008 19:08 (twelve years ago) link

via discogs that is. Granted, I've only bought one thing from Discogs marketplace, but it was a simple and quick transaction, especially for overseas.

+1 to discogs: they don't have Gemm's crappy UI (Gemm usually contains these impossibly long forms with checkboxes and radio selection buttons all obfuscated while you're trying to buy or sell through them.)

soyrizo headache (Mackro Mackro), Monday, 29 December 2008 19:10 (twelve years ago) link

i buy and sell on discogs. have only had 1 bad experience with a guy who tried to charge me 10 dollars to ship a cd single from Canada.

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 29 December 2008 19:11 (twelve years ago) link

i've shopped quite a bit on Discogs, 30+ purchases or so, and I have been satisfied in all but one. And in that instance I filed a claim through PayPal and got my money back. As long as you use PayPal you should be fine and protected, prices are high though and I don't buy anything under NM-, like everyone else here has said.

san frandisco, Monday, 29 December 2008 19:18 (twelve years ago) link

I've used it once so far without problem. There are some rare and/or hard to get things on there, but the prices seem a little over the odds a lot of the time.

holy shit, so weird. it's actually the same seller. wtf

jaxon, Thursday, 17 September 2009 19:07 (twelve years ago) link

discogs allows you to bulk upload items to your marketplace account for sale via a .csv file. I guess with an inventory of 25000 items this is what that seller does and that their prices got out of whack somehow in the process.

krakow, Thursday, 17 September 2009 19:22 (twelve years ago) link

what i cant stand about discogs is the inflexiblity of postage rates. if im ordering one white label 12, theres no way the postage will be £2.75 or £3. very fucking annoying.

titchy (titchyschneiderMk2), Thursday, 17 September 2009 19:36 (twelve years ago) link

should that weigh less than a non white label?

jaxon, Thursday, 17 September 2009 19:37 (twelve years ago) link

xp OK that probably explains that

titchy are you saying that's over the odds? It's not if you consider postage plus if you have to buy a mailer!

you used to sleep with somebody who avoided a soap (DJ Mencap), Thursday, 17 September 2009 19:38 (twelve years ago) link

i suppose. but white labels are still cheaper than normal lps.

i do like discogs though, the offers system is good too. some of the prices people put on their records though is ridiculous (and i do wonder if they do end up getting the prices they ask for).

― titchy (titchyschneiderMk2), Thursday, 17 September 2009 20:36 (18 minutes ago)

Postage rates have nothing to do with discogs though, they're entirely up to the individual seller, so I'm not sure what you mean by them being inflexible. You should contact the seller if you think they're charging over the odds.

I happily both send and receive offers on prices via discogs, often the listed price is just a ball park, or best hope, or even a stab in the dark if you're the only person selling an item.

Again, if you think something's over priced then just speak to the seller. No big deal. If they don't like your offer they'll ignore it or let you know. Easy as pie.

I need to get rid of lots of dance vinyl - some desirable, some considerably less so - and ebay seems like a busted flush for this kind of thing: a few tumbleweed auctions surrounded by acres of Buy It Now postings from professional retailers. Has anyone here used it for selling recently? Is it better than ebay now? Does stuff shift fairly quickly or sit around for months?

Dorian (Dorianlynskey), Monday, 25 January 2010 17:44 (eleven years ago) link

I use discogs for buying and selling fairly often. For dance vinyl, I'd say it's def better than ebay. It's really quick and simple to list items, and there are no fees unless your items actually sell, whereas Ebay charges a listing fee. I have some things on discogs that have been sitting for quite a while now, but it all depends on what you have vs. how many others are selling the same item.

one time gaffled 'em up (one time), Monday, 25 January 2010 19:35 (eleven years ago) link

Best to put them on Discogs a couple bucks below whatever is the cheapest copy if you want to move it immediately. if you're in no hurry, put it at a good price, offer a discount for multiple items in the Comments field and wait.

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 25 January 2010 19:45 (eleven years ago) link

Good advice. Thanks. Tbh I'm more interested in offloading most of it than making big £££.

So, if one were selling off a few hundred records of the psych / noise / jazz / indie variety, discogs over eBay, for sure? My issue with discogs (and, for CDs, Amazon) is the fact that things sell in spurts, with no deadline. It tends to make packing records and regular trips to the post office a full time job. Any advice?

i dunno, i always buy on discogs, sell on amazon. i don't want to wait for people to stumble over what i'm trying to unload, and on average, i get really good money from ebay sales.

i think the upside (sale price) on ebay is (or can be) higher, but the ease of doing stuff on discogs might be better, depending on how much hassle you're willing to go through

l0u1s j0rdan (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 3 May 2012 20:35 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I find Discogs has rarer stuff in the first place, and then for a more reasonable price than Amazon. If what you're selling is aimed at the collectors market or folks that may not look at Amazon first, Discogs is the way to go.

Advice on this:

Person contacts me on Discogs about an item that I am not listing for sale, offers me a large (but not obscene) amount for it, then paypals me with his "brother-in-law's" account and wants me to ship it to his sister (he's in Europe). Obviously I'm not going to ship it to anyone other than his brother-in-law (since anything else violates PayPal's Seller TOS) but should I even do that? Is this some sort of crazy elaborate scam to get a CD single? His Discogs rating is fine... but the whole thing seems pretty suspicious.

Obviously I will not accept the payment if I don't ship him anything btw.

One bad call from barely losing to (Alex in SF), Monday, 7 January 2013 17:06 (eight years ago) link

I would just make sure to do delivery confirmation/insurance so he can't say it never arrived and file a claim with Paypal. That's the only scam I could think of if he already paid. Unless he somehow got hold of someone else's Paypal account but that seems far fetched.

Does seem a little suspicious to have done enough business on discogs to have a rating and yet you don't have your own Paypal acct?

hmm discogs is really a good database and have often thought it would be nice to be able to look up different editions of books/comics/movies instead of just doing ebay-searches but not sure if this seems like a greedy move or an enthusiast move, also not sure if such databases/market places already exist

also, any thoughts on whether the new tax policy will be very harmful to the 2nd hand market place? (apparently Discogs will add 25% tax or something for all orders going from US to EU)

Whoa- what? Really?

Evan, Friday, 17 April 2015 18:04 (six years ago) link

It's VAT that's now payable on *fees* paid by sellers at their local rate if they are in the EU. Fees are 8% of sales prices.

Noel Emits, Friday, 17 April 2015 18:53 (six years ago) link

So it only applies to sellers in the EU and it's nothing to do with where orders are going. I think it works out to no more than around 1.8% on the price of a record in practice. Presumably VAT registered businesses would be able to claim it back as well so no need to pass it on to customers.

Noel Emits, Friday, 17 April 2015 18:56 (six years ago) link

I'll give Discogs credit for hooking me up with a good guy from Norway who had a Neil Young tribute LP I'd been trying to get for eight years (Everybody Knows This Is Norway. It's worth more than I was prepared to pay, so he ripped the CD, put it up on Soulseek, and I got it from him that way.

The other thing I've listed on my want-list is a Velvet Underground tribute that came out in the late '80s. I get an e-mail every few weeks saying one's up for sale, but it's always around 20 pounds, which after conversion and shipping is just way out of my buying range.

clemenza, Saturday, 18 April 2015 01:29 (six years ago) link

It seems to be a good place to buy from. I've only had one negative experience I can think of where a cd arrived shattered because it was sent with neither jewel case or adequate padding.
May have been others but that is the only one came to mind. Think I got a refund but not the cd I wanted.
Discogs is also a reasonably ok resource though it does have gaps. I use it frequently when EACing cds I've bought when they're not in the EAC database. Tends to have tracklisting down for main release version at least.
Gap can be in what releases are listed though.
Would be useful to have reviews of lps and individual release versions too. I think there are some reviews on site but sporadic. There is rateyourmusic I guess. But would be useful.

Stevolende, Saturday, 18 April 2015 07:00 (six years ago) link

I actually appreciate discogs more because of the lack of reviews. Everyone on Rateyourmusic considers themselves geniuses but they're really just a slightly better class of youtube commenter.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 18 April 2015 07:04 (six years ago) link

I had someone buy from me in Argentina but wanted me to ship to his sister in Chile as you are 'not allowed' more than two foreign packages a year or some such.

So I did, and it all went fine.

Mark G, Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:13 (six years ago) link

JUst thinking that it would make it a full resource if people said what they thought of the lp since it could help one work out which lps by an artist were worth getting. also which pressings/releases of which lp.
BUt I guess that most people going to discogs are doing so to buy material they're already aware of. Particularly marketplace.
Just thought if it was done right it could help the experience. But not sure how 'doing it right' would be achieved anyway since I can see what johnny's saying about rateyourmusic being true at least to some extent. Ego/opinion outweighing info etc

Do wonder where you get information on the best sounding versions of things from since it doesn't seem to be fully utilised on RYM and Amazon just mixes all reviews for all releases under a title together.

Stevolende, Saturday, 18 April 2015 15:23 (six years ago) link

Of course anyone can post reviews on there and the entire database is user populated. The process of submitting release data excludes editorialising though, which is as it should or it would never get done and.disagreements would be endless.

I like that the site still feels a bit down-home and ungentrified. Not unlike this place really. My impression is that the staff are still enthusiasts for the most part.

Noel Emits, Saturday, 18 April 2015 15:38 (six years ago) link

discogs are reviews are great, it's either:
a) old school clubbers reminiscing and being crazy hyperbolic about old school house/rave
b) a bunch of people posting "repress please?" or "you gougers should be ashamed or yourself" (hip euro "underground" deep house 12"s on small labels)
c) some person posting "the label on my copy is more periwinkle than violet and 'chuggin gasoline' is about 6 seconds longer than on the original uk chiswick issue"

How did you lose money when you got a full refund?

Sassy Boutonnière (ledriver), Thursday, 30 September 2021 17:56 (two months ago) link

My PayPal account went from 11.13 Eu before sending that (as well as a CC payment that was refunded in full) to 3.14 Eu after the refund. My guess is the Euro vs the NZD strengthened in between me paying him and him giving me the refund. 7.99 EU is unaccounted for?

micarl, Thursday, 30 September 2021 18:52 (two months ago) link

Did he give a full refund or partial refund? Find it difficult to believe that changes in exchange rate over a week or two would eat up 3/4 of the refund.

Dan Worsley, Thursday, 30 September 2021 18:58 (two months ago) link

Ah, misunderstood your post. I thought the item cost 11.13, I guess that exchange rate around have made a difference given it was 130 Euro.

Dan Worsley, Thursday, 30 September 2021 19:01 (two months ago) link

There's an image a few posts earlier that shows the details of the two transactions and the balance of my PayPal before and after.

micarl, Thursday, 30 September 2021 19:02 (two months ago) link

It's only the difference between 11.13€ and 3.14€ but I think that's still far more than you'd expect for the exchange rate difference over four days. It doesn't look like a prtial refund - it's showing the same figures as for the original payment.

I don't really understand why it would affect your paypal balance if it went to the credit card but maybe that's how the do it.

only built 4 lynx africa (Noel Emits), Thursday, 30 September 2021 19:07 (two months ago) link

what happened to me was super weird, dude prob never sent the tape, I told him I'd have to take it to PayPal after a while, he said OK, I got a refund, then an email from PayPal saying "your refund has been delayed", then it was canceled, this then happened like 4 times and the last time he sent the "payment" PayPal closed the case and I couldn't seem to reopen it no matter where I navigated to.

sleeve, Thursday, 30 September 2021 19:13 (two months ago) link

then, of course, that last one was canceled as well

sleeve, Thursday, 30 September 2021 19:13 (two months ago) link

I don't really understand why it would affect your paypal balance if it went to the credit card but maybe that's how the do it.

I use the PayPal credit I have from selling records to buy more but this purchase I only had 11.13 EU as a balance so the rest of the payment was deducted from my credit card. I would expect to get the same amount back but I didn't even though the refund was the full amount. The only thing I can think of is the exchange rate changing so the credit was full for my credit card but only partial of my PayPal balance. It's weird to me too.

micarl, Thursday, 30 September 2021 20:53 (two months ago) link

OK, yeah I think that could make sense. It's maybe worth knowing as well that if a refund is issued within 24 hours Paypal uses the same exchange rate as the original payment.

only built 4 lynx africa (Noel Emits), Thursday, 30 September 2021 21:04 (two months ago) link

Right. Too bad this guy took 4 days after receiving payment to work out he didn't have it.

micarl, Thursday, 30 September 2021 21:16 (two months ago) link

To be honest, that's happened with me occasionally. An item I thought I had, turned out to have been sold a long time back. I have processed full refunds in those cases, and everyone's been fine. Apart from one who went on ridiculous and wanted to sue for compensation for the disappointment, but I never heard a peep after day two so hey.

Mark G, Thursday, 30 September 2021 21:29 (two months ago) link

I can see how it could happen, but from now on I will ask for confirmation that the items are in stock before I process a payment. If that means the seller has to locate them, so what? They will need to to ship them anyway.

micarl, Thursday, 30 September 2021 21:42 (two months ago) link

And if you're a seller and the buyer has purchased but not processed payment I don't see the big deal in confirming items are in stock and you will get them shipped as soon as payment clears.

Sometimes I just accidentally add the UK or European version to my wantlist, but sometimes it'll be the US edition and still when I click on the link it's like:

war mice (hardcore dilettante), Tuesday, 26 October 2021 13:52 (one month ago) link

I've been dying for a filter that only shows me US listings of things in my wantlist. It's such a slog to scroll through, as frogbs said, the same damn relistings every single day in the "98 new albums for sale in your wantlist" emails, and they are also international so they're not only part of the furniture in the emails but wouldn't have been a consideration either way. And yeah I've wondered similar things as zacata... why is discogs more of an international marketplace overall? Most items for sale seem to be dominated by sellers outside US regardless of whether they're relisted or not.

Evan, Tuesday, 26 October 2021 13:54 (one month ago) link

You can filter by USD which at least gets you like halfway there

one thing that really annoys me is all the stuff listed at unserious prices, since these are the albums that are always clogging up the wantlist. you know the ones, where the lowest/median/highest is like $15/20/25 and then every available copy is $55+. I wish you could just filter out anything that's like 10% above the highest price.

frogbs, Tuesday, 26 October 2021 14:13 (one month ago) link

Yeah from their perspective it makes sense for them to, whether manually or with algorithms that adjust pricing competitively constantly, price things opportunistically if it seems an album might be on track to become rarer than the demand, but agreed like you I'm not interested in being the buyer that puts it on that track. To that same point I sometimes wonder about the person who bought something for +$20 more than what it sold for like a month or less prior. These people either do not fret over being a sucker and overpaying or they needed [album] BAD and they need it NOW.

hamicle, Friday, 19 November 2021 12:28 (one week ago) link

Did a purchase yesterday, I think my first since all the changes to automate shipping costs. I paid right away but the seller still has to review things and say it's looking fine, I guess (take the status from payment pending to payment received). Fine by me as I'm familiar with the site... but I could see how people would be confused by "pending" after they just paypal'd funds that the site should be aware of.

maf you one two (maffew12), Friday, 19 November 2021 13:08 (one week ago) link

One that drives me nuts is the second volume of the Deutsche Elektronische Musik compilation CD, which is on my wishlist. Inexplicably, volumes 1, 2, and 4 are priced normally, but I guess this one went out of print and wasn't reissued because of a rights issue (or so I was told). So I have a notification set on eBay as well as on Discogs, and I've seen people asking as much as $400 for this thing. Like, I want it, but I'm getting so tired of seeing it in my email inbox every single day that I wanna just remove it from my wantlist altogether. This is just one example, of course there are others, but this one in particular drives me up the wall

Paul Ponzi, Saturday, 20 November 2021 13:53 (one week ago) link

One good trick is to just create a second account with a focused want list of the stuff that you really care about

I did this and every day I get an email about the same item that this seller lists every day. Though they did recently drop the price so it’s only 50% above the max price, lol

I’m nicer than sleeve so I wouldn’t necessarily have him killed but i wouldn’t mind a nice flogging

Just keep your Watchlist small imo

idk given shipping costs its been helpful for me to put a bunch of things on there that I'm not actively seeking but would buy if I came across it at a record store...like if I can get a $4 copy of Falco's Emotional as a toss in with something I really do want, that's pretty nice

I occasionally sell on Discogs, but only as an in-between for a close friend who is older and not on-line. For instance, my buddy will wind up with a reggae record that is worth $500 and I will sell it for him on discogs. How long should I wait before giving him his money? What is the deadline for registering a complaint on the buyer’s side?

I don’t spend money I get from selling till at least I know the person has received it. So long as you grade fairly and play test you might be able to give it sooner.

The one Discogs feature I'd really love is to be able to filter by sleeve condition as well as media condition, even if it's just to take out all the 'no cover' results.
