Most of my listings are of classical music sealed CDs and sealed LPs- about 75%, many quite obscure. I've over 4,000 currently listed.
I've almost 500 items, LP and CD, that are not listed on Amazon in the format I have., with a large CD group without bar codes. It's very time-consuming to list them for the first time on Az, time more efficiently spent working through the thousands of items awaiting listing for which I'll find most already there, with photos.
I also use eBay but they requre a cover scan now for each item. I'll do this if I expect a $ 20-25 minimum- just preparing a bunch now, many Melodia LPs.
I find dicogs.com less friendly to classical recordings. They also do not have an E grade which I find a strong barrier. If you have had good experience with them, it's certainly worth a conversation. I could use them for the non-Az stuff.
This is a conversation I would welcome.

Do you find Amazon to be a better marketplace than Discogs, for example?
