I've never used Discogs to order anything before (I usually go through distros), but some "hard to find items" appear from sellers on Discogs for reasonable prices.

Any good or bad luck/advice?

Everything I have ordered has arrived in good condition as described.

I only had a problem with a seller but it was partly my fault (ordered an item and then added a few more by messaging him, then received only the first one, he told me he will send the rest but never arrived and I forgot to open a paypal reclaim in time...).

For expensive oop/rare items, I would recommend to contact the seller and make him an offer. For example the last DLP i bought was for sale at 55+shipping and I got it for 50 shipping included.

And of course always check the feedback.

I have never had a problem. Ive ordered about a dozen things and sold more than that. Some of the prices are a bit too much, but I prefer it to ebay due to not having to bid and better item descriptions.

But the thing is there are humans involved, so scams are always a possibility.

Discogs is fine for buyers...just don't try to sell anything there.

^Why, and where else would you try to sell?
I need to get rid of all of my records except personal favorites.

the wantlist + daily emails are great, got a lot of good things off my want list in this manner, for good prices too

it is a very buyer friendly site, the staff has answered questions quickly and sided with me the few times I had a problem with a seller

I never sold, but I guess I will eventually have too

My experience selling with Discogs is an extremely shitty one.

I sold a shitty death metal CD to some asshole buyer. He claimed it didn't arrive. I called his bluff because I had tracking. He then took out a paypal and a Discogs claim on me. I provided the tracking to both parties. Paypal found that I had fulfilled my end of the agreement and refused to refund him his money. Discogs on the other hand decided that I was at fault, and told me if I didn't refund him and provide them with a PayPal transaction for the refund they'd ban me from selling or buying on the site. They also refused to refund my sellers fee for the item because it was "my fault".

I told Discogs EXACTLY where they could stick their decision, and they banned me.

It's as much of a mixed bag as Ebay is; most transactions are very smooth, every once in a while you get something badly graded, or the seller on vacation, or a shipping fuck up, etc.
That being said, there is simply no place better to buy rare underground music. Not even close.

Only had good experience on both selling and buying. And only one case where I was buying a cd from an idiot seller caused a situation that I had to contact the site staff.

I find the sale block/ban of certain records/artists to be more annoying than anything else. Fucking pinko queers.

It's good aside from blocking certain items that are indeed on the database from being sold like said above. Very annoying. Wish I got emails about xeno ejaculation items.

The only problem I've had as a seller was with a buyer who claimed that the Blutrache demo I sold to him was a bootleg (it wasn't, but it didn't seem like I was able to convince him). As a buyer I've had only positive experiences.

Haha, I was thinking that a bit when I posted this, but I have never spoken directly with anyone who had experience ordering off of it, so I figured I'd risk looking like a rube and ask.

I appreciate all of the feedback, everyone!

That was the impression I was getting, but I was wondering if it was "too good to be true." It seems every time I check Ebay for something, it's not there or, on the off-chance it is, I don't want to have to wait however long for a bid to end.

For rare records on discogs it's better to ask as much details as possible. Some sellers are no capable of putting correct item on sale, so if you are looking for first press it can also be a later repress. That happens a lot. If a seller refuses to give details there is something fishy about it.

Sometimes Ebay works better because there the sellers put many pictures with details to be sure it is the real deal.
