1. Selling – Fees and Payments

We keep things simple at Unitbase. There are no listing fees.

When an item is sold, it is subject to a 7.2% sales fee.

We pride ourselves on offering a better service at a lower cost than our competitors.

When you sell an item, the money is held in Escrow by Unitbase until it has been successfully delivered to the buyer. The money is then transferred securely to your bank account.

Buyers may pay by credit or debit card, through our partners at Stripe (a multinational payments company).

2. Buying

Unitbase’s marketplace is designed to be easily accessible as a buyer or seller alike: we all have gear that we’d like to explore, as well as a stack of kit that we’re just not using anymore.

We welcome buyers and sellers from across the world – Unitbase is a real-name marketplace, and we really value the trust between our members.

Using your real name online leads to increased trust and encourages cooperation. It also leads to genuine community. To know the people you’re dealing with enhances everyone’s enjoyment.

3. About Unitbase

Unitbase is a specialised platform which offers a wide range of equipment and inspiring content exploring specialities from underwater filming to advanced flash lighting setups.

Whether you’re a professional or amateur, a stills photographer or filmmaker: Unitbase is the marketplace to trade camera equipment and to browse all of the wonderful gadgets that we use to image-make.

We launched in 2020 to offer photographers and filmmakers a safe, specialised marketplace for the tools they rely on. Marketplaces work better when the buyers, sellers and people running the site care about their products – and we are active technicians in our fields.

4. Ecological Mission Statement

There is an enormous amount of gear sitting in kit rooms, spare rooms and garages, that can often be challenging to sell: too specialised, too quirky to list on existing platforms. We have created Unitbase to showcase secondhand gear in the most interesting way possible: and in doing so, to stir up the ecosystem and return unused equipment back into circulation.
