eBay Alternatives – Online Auctions & Marketplaces


auction-sites-image-copyBelow you will find a very comprehensive and ‘exhaustive” directory of tons of alternatives to eBay. Majority are general merchandise (new or used), except as noted, many are free, some are fixed-price while others are up for bid or negotiation. A combination of auction, live-auction, marketplace, classified, etc. Some are large incorporated companies, others could be smaller entrepreneurs just starting out while most are somewhere in the middle. Majority of the listings are United States based, however there are a few listed here that are based in Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and others – Many allow for international sales. I would make an educated guess that at least 90% of these are still up and in operation since this list was compiled a few months back . Due to the nature of auctions as well as the internet, I’m sure  you will come across a few that are no longer in existence for one reason or another –  mergers, buy-outs, server changes, failures, and so forth. The numbers of sellers, buyers and exposure will vary too, of course. This should give anyone with an interest of selling online an incredible opportunity to shop & compare – Do check ’em out. No guarantees are made as to which one will out-perform others however one thing is certain. They are ALL here as an alternative to eBay who has the ‘universally” recognized name but has gotten TOO BIG for its own good and has also gotten waaaaaaaay out of hand with their fees and policies! As eBay continues to lose sellers, it gives very good growth potential to other sites who are keen and savvy to what sellers are looking for.

Good Luck and Happy Searching! :
