Q: What is Buya?

Buya is an online marketplace that gives you a unique shopping venue by offering the entire inventories real-time of each Retail seller’s store across the United States. This means you can shop the entire U.S. at one, easy-to-use, marketplace.

Q: How does Buya work?

A pawnshop lists an item from their store. Items can include anything from antiques to cars, books to sporting goods (you’ve seen the pawn shows).

If you see something you like or have to have, you can make an offer (negotiate your heart out) or buy it on the spot (at a fixed price) or make a bid (going once, going twice, sold).

Q: Is Buya a safe place to shop?

Yes! Buya is unique because the sellers on our marketplace are licensed Pawnbrokers. Every item that each store takes in is vetted by the local law enforcement agencies, and some jurisdictions submit their item data to a national database to match any item that may have been reported by the Police.

Q: What is Pay Store Directly Offline?

Pay Store Directly Offline is a special option that allows you to pay the store directly. When purchasing an item, select the shipping option. After you complete the order, contact the store and pay with the selected payment method. If you don't contact the store within 24 hours the store will contact you by email or phone number. Please make sure you pay on time otherwise your order will be cancelled and you might get negative feedback from the store.

Q: What do the rating and feedback scores mean? What does it tell me about the pawnshop? What does it say about me as a buyer?

Rating and feedback is Buya’s way of creating buyer and seller reputation. Whenever you buy something, you can leave feedback about the transaction. The seller can leave feedback for you as well.

The rating and feedback score is one of the most helpful tools we can offer. Buyers should look at a pawnshop’s rating and feedback when purchasing an item. Sellers look at a buyer’s rating and feedback when negotiating or auctioning an item.

Leaving honest comments helps Buya users buy confidently and gives users a good idea of what to expect when buying from a particular pawnshop.

Everybody wants to win, but only if the price is right. Each pawnshop has the option to sell items using an auction. The pawnshop will determine when the auction ends and if/how much the reserve price will be. Buyers are then able to bid against one another, with each subsequent bid higher than the previous. Going once, going twice—at the end of the allotted time period, the item is sold to the highest bidder.

When you place a bid, enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item. Don’t worry, this maximum amount is a secret (the seller and other bidders don’t know your maximum).

  • We will place bids on your behalf using the automatic bid increment amount, which is based on the current high bid.
  • We bid only as much as necessary to make sure that you remain the high bidder.
  • If another bidder places the same maximum bid or higher, we will notify you so that you can place another bid.
