Have created an account and I like the trade upload process. Works far better than its competitors, particularly Boatsandoutboards. A lot less scams (or harder to spot) with very proactive people employed in rooting them out. Payment process a bit dated (no direct debit etc).
In terms of figures I'm both astonished and concerned. We have only put up 10 listings right now, 4 ribs, 1 Pilothouse, 4 Outboards and a wanted ad. 3 under £1k, 5 under £10k and one at £20k. These have been on just 3 days and had 30,000 views between them, all getting 2,000 + hits which is fantastic.
Concerning figure is we had just 1 enquiry from them all. Very unusual. I even put up a test ad with a stupidly cheap package price to see what happened and it had 5,000 hits in 24 hours but not one enquiry!!!
Compare that to B/O where the same ads have had just 3,000 hits between them in the last 5 days but at least 10 enquiries., 2 leading to sales. A typical eBay listing generates 3,000 views in 10 days.
I guess what I'm trying to say is Apollo Duck seems to get far more lurkers whereas B/O gets the serious buyers. Too early to make a decision but I'm thinking Apollo Duck has a much wider customer base, most of which are not within a distance to proceed interest (USA etc). That being said its so cheap it's well worth it but as bad as the site is, Boatsandoutboards still produces the best results.
At 4.5 times the price I should darn well hope so
