    To be honest, Ebay and Amazon owns the market. You could Sell on Bonanza, Etsy, Ioffer, and Ecrater. But you wont get as much exposure as you would on Ebay and Amazon. The only other leverage you can use would be your own website. Sell on Ebay, Place ads in your shipment with your website and bring in traffic. Your website is your home of making money and You control the terms, return process, and shipment process. Ebay cant control that.

    You could try selling on fiverr. Fiverr is the largest website online that sells services. I wont say that it's as good as ebay, but I can say there's money to be made there. Plus they aren't full of crap like ebay is with its sellers limits and fees.

    Ebay is the world's online marketplace.

    It gets the most traffic and you won't get anywhere near the volume in sells anywhere else besides Amazon.

    Other alternatives to Ebay are:

    Amazon
    Craigslist
    Etsy
    Newegg
    Ioffer
    Bonanza
    Ebid
    Ubid
    Bidstart
    ArtFire
    Tias
    Onlineauction
    Storenvy
    Rubylane
    Vflea
    Ealtbay
    Delcampe
    Backpage
    Webidz
    Asos marketplace

    Thank you for your replies....I will check all said sites out....I'm on a few but had nothing in 2 months...hence me asking. I do have a .TK website up and running, guess I need to look into that side of things more.

    Thanks again ;-)

    Add me to the list of happy Ebay sellers. Their staff and the other sellers and buyers on it are just amazing. Another marketplace I use to sell my stuff is ListingDock.com, great place to buy/sell/trade with ease. The website is easy to navigate and when I have questions the help desk is very helpful.
