Tutti.ch better than Ricardo.ch?

In my recent experience I had more success selling my new / second hand items on Tutti than months on Ricardo.
I know this can vary in from item to item, but some stuff I was selling the same day. Before that, same items where on for many weeks on Ricardo and a cost occurs every time I make a re-listing.

Ricardo, if you are a buyer
Tutti, if you are a seller

Re: Tutti.ch better than Ricardo.ch

I onve tried to sell a watch on Ricardo.ch. After two weeks it was sold elsewhere and i took advert down.. Guess what Ricardo invoiced me? CHF 114,-

I WOULD LOVE TO see a competitor like ebay take over all market share from s* companies like Ricardo.

Re: Tutti.ch better than Ricardo.ch

Something I've noticed, but not really understood is that many Tutti sellers insist on pick-up for even small items that would easily post.

I guess if they don't like the item, they simply don't make a deal... and vice versa.
I say vice versa because I want to have a piece of mind that the buyer is happy with the product.
Once I was selling an item on Ricardo, husband came, inspected the item and was super happy, and he paid me.
When he returned at his house the wife was not happy with the item... and she left me a negative feedback.
I told the story to Ricardo, but they will not remove the negative feedback.
I even keep an SMS from the husband thanking me for a good deal.
Buyer came, liked the product and paid. Wife left negative feedback. That was a hard one to swallow.

Tutti is for the most part private sellers, trying to get some money for used stuff with minimal effort and zero cost. The buyers are similar. Sending even a small item means packing it, taking it to the post, the potential risk of it getting lost or damaged underway, and the risk that the other doesn't deliver or pay.

No wonder they'd rather see the item/money at the exact moment that things change hands.

Well you obviously put absolutely every option possible into the advertisement, and still managed to well over-price it.

There is also www.anibis.ch., which works much like tutti.

How did it went?

In my case, all the items I sold on tutti were posted in english and I got replies also from only german speaking people (so they understood the ad, but replied in german) and that didn't pose problems to the transaction. Often, when buying smth, I was impressed that I could converse in english with the (swiss) seller.

Although it works as it is, it would be nice to have english as a 4th language of the platform.

Tried also anibis in the beginning, but I was not so impressed. Got more replies on tutti when selling stuff that I posted on both platforms. Promoting your ad also works quite nice on tutti, I could see the consequence immediately. And one of my best buys, a cheap and in perfect condition "kinderwagen" - was on tutti. The seller posted the ad just on tutti.ch

One complaint - but more about the users than about the platform - is that sometimes the prices are too high, i.e. the same item, *NEW*, can be found with a lower price on other platforms (like digitech or amazon)

I haven't sold anything on Tutti yet. Had a complaint that the ads were in english and that I was conversing with them in English. So I translated all
the ads into German. I also converse with interested parties now in German.
Google translate is my friend.
Had another complaint that I was unable to post some fishing rods which are
around 102cm which exceeds The Post spec for a small items. I have no idea how or packaging to post them.
So not so good so far.

A 116 cm rod fits in a 100 cm x 60 cm box which is the max. dimension permitted by Die Post. Otherwise they charge CHF 29 for bulky items (Sperrgut).

In my experience it is not. I offer two pick up points, but I am also willing to post items. We have postal pick up service in our village so I don't even have to go to the post office though very often I do.

The Ricardo fees are now 8% of the selling price, capped at chf 40. That is on top of the fee to place the item on Ricardo.

Re: Tutti.ch better than Ricardo.ch?

I've just contacted a seller on tutti about a piece of furniture. Turns out he's an old aquaintance.

Tutti all the way!

8% of the sales price is peanuts if you get a higher price for your stuff. I had some kids skis that I listed for 20 CHF, some 760+ views on them and they got 60+ bids, ending up selling at 113 CHF.

I was going to put them on a Facebook group for 20 CHF. After Ricardo.ch fees of around 9.50 CHF, I pocketed an extra 83.50 CHF. Plus I had a confirmed buyer - and not numerous no shows or people changing their mind.

The same when I listed a a TrippTrapp chair on ricardo - highly desired items are bidded up to a second-hand market price according to their condition.

Re: Tutti.ch better than Ricardo.ch?

Both ricardo.ch and tutti.ch owned by same group, Tamedia - same cook, different menus
Ricardo better if don't want bother of active selling or have something which you really want sold regardless of price - auction takes care of the pricing, only deal with one buyer when done, tradeoff is you pay a fee.
Tutti is better if you have high-demand, low-priced, or big/heavy item and you are willing to screen calls and risk no-show appointments.
I believe eBay not a big player in CH, fees similar to Ricardo. For sellers of high-demand items, Ricardo better than eBay since auction extends for few minutes after highest bidder at end, versus eBay which allows bid "sniping" before auction end.
Seems best strategy is to list tutti first, see if any calls. If no action after a few days, then list on ricardo and check back in a week. Note: if you get a bid on ricardo, you owe end commission to them if item is sold regardless of whether on ricardo or elsewhere.

Before selling my iPad on Tutti I looked on Ricardo to see what the same models were selling for. There were a few ads just finishing so I had new information to use as a basis for comparison. I sold my iPad on Tutti for chf 300, which is more than I would have been able to sell it for on Ricardo. It sold in one day, the payment was in my account the following morning and I posted the iPad to the buyer as we agreed that morning. I paid the postage. I didn't have the hassle of an auction. I had more than one person willing to buy it for the full asking price.


The no shows and people changing their mind seems to be a problem mainly on this forum which is basically why I didn't put the item here.

Re: Tutti.ch better than Ricardo.ch?

I got several orders from Tutti for my self adhesive rally stripes that I sell.

When they don't sell on Ricardo I'm charged every time for re -listing the add. Hence I stooped using Ricardo.
