    I posted an iPhone on Amazon and to my surprise - someone bought it the next day. I was really shocked because I keep hearing stories about how Amazon's traffic is dismal compared to eBay's. However I'm getting really sick of eBay.. and Amazon seems to be more lax (no limits, etc.)

    Are things selling within one day a rare occurrence for Amazon? What can one expect compared to eBay?

    You can sale at higher price but they deleted you account sometime with no reason and you lost your money

    Amazon is good but there are limits. They have their own formula for how fast you should be selling when you are a new seller. If you hit their limits they will put your account in review and you can continue selling but but not withdraw payment until the review is over.

    I don't know why anyone would say that there is more ebay traffic than Amazon traffic. The opposite is true.

    Exactly, Amazon is ranked higher worldwide and nationally. More link juice to.
