Sites Like Ebay
With the advent of more purchasers looking for deals online, there have been may sites like eBay populating the internet. Just a quick search of "auctions" will give the user 10 full pages of different sites. And, not all sites are created equal. Some, such as eBay are highly policed while others give looser requirements for items posted.
- If you're looking for a site like eBay which has high marks for honesty, head over to Webstore.com. User reviews rank Webstore right behind eBay in ease of use, reliability, and security. Webstore.com has an edge over eBay in that there are NO fees to sell or purchase items. The online auction site makes its revenues through ads that are placed on your auction items. Clicks on the ads equal money for Webstore.com. And, like eBay, Webstore allows one to sell their wares as single item, multiple items, or Dutch auctions.
- Another highly ranked online auction site like eBay is Onlineauctions.com. This site has a different charge than either eBay's charge per item or Webstore's no fee style. Instead, Onlineauctions.com charges $8.00 a month to the seller for one or a thousand items. One fee pays it all. If you're a power seller at eBay, you'll probably save a lot of money with this one time per month fee schedule. Purchasers can register and purchase items for no additional cost than the price of the winning auction.
- And, finally, did you know that Overstock.com has an auction portion of their site? Yep, they do. Overstock.com is lacking insome of the niceties afforded a power seller at eBay, such as the ability to block buyers or pre-fill forms, And, Overstock.com's fees are just behind eBays; listings cost from $0.15 to $3.15 depending on the beginning auction value (eBay's listing fees are $.15 to $4.00). However, where Overstock does beat out eBay is in their final value cost which is added after the auction is completed. Overstock.com charges a fraction of eBay's cost - 6% versus 13.75%. That's where you'll put more money in your pocket.
