Is there any Ebay alternative site? i have tried bonanze, ebid and amazone.com but they are not good as ebay.
The problem with ebay is, there are so many direct wholesaler who are selling the product directly. which makes the life much harder to the people like me who onl do dropship. And the charge is alos high.
I am so upset with the EBAY TOP SELLER NOW. Everytime i check the wholesale price of any product, i find cheaper than that selling on ebay by top ebay seller.
i need solution as soon as possible please, any suggestion is accepted. Otherwise, my business will die over the night.
Thank you.

The problem you are finding is unfortunately being experienced by quite a lot, it's getting harder to compete on eBay with the list of wholesalers and large sellers using the platform for their own business.

Unfortunately there is no other site that can equal eBay in regards to traffic flow, and that's why it attracts the big end of town, not just the small sellers. I would suggest looking at establishing your own website, then use eBay as more of a marketing tool.

Building your own site is a lot more work, and a lot more effort and expense to promote your goods, but I feel that it is the best alternative for those wanting to survive long term in online sales, because eBay is only going to get harder for us all.

Hi shyam204,

What fudjj said is quite true, so far none of the eBay alternatives can equal the traffic that eBay gets. Amidst everything people - sellers and buyers alike still flock to eBay. But then if nobody sticks with these alternative sites how else would these sites gain momentum let alone traffic?

Here's a recent post also asking for eBay alternatives, please check out the suggested alternatives for your reference.

Hell Ali,

It's been a while since we heard from you :) Hope everything fine at your end... Happy Holidays to you and your family too!

Sorry but it might be a bit of a challenge finding that one. If you can provide us the exact title and date it would really help us in finding the link you are looking for..

I did find these old blogs, but I'm not sure if these will help -
