Fed Up With eBay? Look Where Else You Can Sell Online!


no-ebayFed up with the exorbitant (highly excessive) fees you’re paying on eBay?

Tired of being dinged for every conceivable move you make with your  listings  as well as displaying your merchandise?

Have you had enough of being overcharged for items that don’t even sell and paying again to have them relisted?

Sick of the constant fee increases, feedback system and policy changes?

There are alternatives — 100’s of them!

ALL of them are CHEAPER than eBay — Many are even FREE!!!

There are a number of “specialty” sites listed for those specializing in antiques, collectibles,  fine art, media, electronics, toys, children’s merchandise,  jewelry, home-made crafts and more. Another trend are sites that are set-up as “reverse auctions” where buyers attract sellers. Also more and more sites are including social networking, live chat and open forums for instant communication.

Majority of the sites listed are based in the United States but there are several listings from sites based in  Australia and the United Kingdom – also a growing number of “Global” site listings from Canada, France, Germany, India, Mexico, New Zealand and  elsewhere.

Helpful Advice & Suggestions

After checking out or scanning this long exhaustive list, you can see that there are plenty of other eBay alternative sites available — HOWEVER — Before you decide to register with any of them, you should ask yourself the following 5 important questions:

  1. How much traffic does the site get?
  2. How long has the website been operating?
  3. How much do you have to pay in listing and final value fees?
  4. What types of payment methods do they accept?
  5. How secure is the site?

You should be aware that the vast majority of these sites have very low traffic compared to eBay. However, a number of them are very “niche specific”, so if you happen to be selling niche items in the related auction site, you may be able to gain a highly targeted group of customers searching for your specific items.

Remember — Registering and selling at a website just because it’s free or has extremely low fees, is practically useless if the traffic is non-existent and therefore no one will be be able to see what items you’re selling.

  1. Hmmm – I stopped looking very closely at your list when I got to Bidville – they have been closed for about a year, now – and just rapid-scanned the length of it (impressive). You might want to review your list with an eye to how current the info is. Nevertheless, kudos for posting a clickable list. :D

    • Thanks for the update – You actually caught me in right before I updated my last post – please check it out once more if you have the serious interest – it has just been updated as mentioned below …..
      * Freshly Updated on 9/18/09 – Now over 200 Listings! – Includes many new listings – Includes omissions from my previous posts – Sites that have been found to have shut down have been crossed out – Most listings have direct links to their websites – Simply click on their name and you will be taken to them – Keep in mind also that there is constant change or turnover in this particular business

  2. wow… great list!! I got one more for you, listia.com. Get free stuff and sell stuff you don’t need anymore. No cash needed for this site.

  3. lots of good info here but if you waqnt it sold go to tgosell.com

  4. listia.com is a scam.

    I’ve been researching for an “great” ebay alternative for 3 months so far and really having a hard time of it.

    It would help to have a commentary under each of the links to see what people think about each site.

  5. There sure is a lot of information listed here about, well, listing sites. As Mr. Parsons notes, it would be quite helpful however if a brief summary (as opposed to a lengthy summary? — I might have to rethink that, but anyway . . .) were placed after each website listed. I imagine that that would entail a whole lot more effort though. Crawling through this list of sites and checking each one out is a frightening task, too. But, still, an excellent resource.

  6. There is one website that should be there and that’s http://www.mvptraders.com. They have free listing and the site is easy to navigate. They would be worth a look!

  7. I have been with Bidzinger for over 2 years now since it’s launch and have had great success with my online shop as far as sales go. I also list on other various sites too, but I truly have to say I have had a great experience there.

  8. There is a lot of online auctions out there. Have you ever tried auctions with the lowest unique bid? Like this one http://www.bidbeat.com ?
