    amazon is better because you will sell large number of products not in your hand but in amazon store

    I use both. They both have their perks. AMAZON pays straight cash, but it's every two weeks. Ebay pays right then through paypal. I sell a lot on both. I personally think Amazon is easier, you just need a barcode or keywords, whereas you can just plug it in. Ebay you need to write a description. Hope this helps!

    UPC codes are free, they should come on the products or tags of the products.

    The pay out automatically every 2 weeks but you can request a settlement whenever you like.

    Thanks, but I am talking about my own product which don't have UPC because no one else makes them. I have been selling them on eBay but to list on Amazon I need UPC. The few place I checked are asking around $ 100 per UPC.

    Thanks for your time.

    How are the Amazon fee's compared to ebay's fees? I haven't tried selling on Amazon and ebay fee's are killing me since they double dip with their paypal fees.

    Amazon is 15% and ebay is 12% with paypal taking another 3%. I prefer amazon because you get paid for shipping.

    I prefer Amazon, although it is not available in many countries.
