Hi,
I notice that Ebay and Ebid need to pay an amount if you want to list your items on their website for sale.
For a start, being still new in this line, I just like to test market by selling some items from a webiste that provide free listing for our items. Last time I ever use Yahoo auctions which is free but only for local sales. But now I think Yahoo auction has close down so i am sourcing for other URL which provide free listing/auction for us.
Kindly advise is there any this kind of URL exist that is open for all countries and is free? Any feedback is welcome. Thank you.

You could try using Craigslist to test your products. It is free to use them

ioffer.com seems to be okay. Free to post but there will be a charge if you make a sale. Check it out. I don't know what kind of traffic the site have.

ebid.net does NOT charge a fee to list like feebay. there is a charge when you sell the product, like other sites. they have a membership that you can purchase, which is VERY reasonable which will give you more options to list your product. just like other sites, you can pay a bit more per item to enhance the listing, make it front page, etc. definitely a better option than feebay, JMHO

What kind of traffic is ebid.net generating? I keep hearing a lot of people talking about this site... is anyone having success?? The membership fee really does not bother me--- It's time that I am concerned with. I'm just wondering if items are actually selling.
Thanks guys

Hi,

I am new on here and am finding some great information from everyone! I noticed some questions on where to sell items, has anyone sold on blujay.com? From what I can tell it is totally free and they give you your own online store. Any info or comments? :P

Hi! I am new here to. I sell on Ebay, but the fees and the issues about shipping costs and all the other things that Ebay seem to be trying to fix has kind of discouraged me. Listing fee, after the sale fees, Paypal fees, Where are my fees? I know I will still sell on Ebay but not like before! I am looking also for a better website! Thanks!

Quite a few options to consider, but when you evaluate the traffic part of the selling equation I doubt if anything is going to come close to ebay, and if it did then they would be forced to look at their pricing structure more carefully.

The fact that they don't indicates that they are confident about their place within the market.

I would think that it's a smart move to take advantage of the alternatives, especially where listing is either inexpensive, or free. Lets face it, everyone can't just sit around complaining about other sites not having traffic flow if you are not prepared to help them to grow by putting your products there to start with.

It's a two edged sword, traffic can generate more products, but product range can also generate traffic, and as sellers you have that power to control that aspect of the equation.

Serious alternatives as we currently stand, everyone seems to have a favourite, but Yahoo seems to me to be in the best possible position to offer a serious alternative to ebay, but like I sad.....try and spread them around, it can't hurt!

Hi Mr Jimmy and other team members ,
Thanks for all your tips and encouragement.You all are wonderful.

I'm a new member, but I find it hard to choose a Business name to suit my product for easy identification by the eBay search engine. Initially, I was thinking about buying jewelries but I changed my mind after reading a welcome address from Jimmy. I will start with the profit packs and pallets. The Business name I have in mind is Pink Blosom's general merchandize. Is this suitable?Or what do you think. I also need help with setting up my account with the right software design. Thanks and God Bless you.

I think what Marc said is worth repeating ... “everyone can't just sit around complaining about other sites not having traffic flow if you are not prepared to help them to grow by putting your products there to start with.”

It seems like there are a lot sellers who want to “eat their cake and have it too.” If you find a stable website that provides a free store - go for it, and drive your own traffic to your own store!
