    Hey I searched around but didn't find any answers. I am wondering if there are any real alternatives that can truly stack up to eBay?

    Has anyone been having any luck anywhere else?

    Does anyone got a list of the top 6 biggest other auction sites?

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Wow... are people too lazy to even google now days?

    Here are the top answers for you:

    Code:
    http://auctions.nettop20.com/
    http://www.geekgirls.com/net_auction_sites.htm
    http://online-auction-sites.toptenreviews.com/
    
    The last link probably has the best comparison.


    (No auction site will be on par with ebay, but there are many that are good in their own ways)

    Hmm looks like someone missed out on their Nap :rolleyes:

    If you wanted more specifics than you should have asked for more, such as which is the best to advertise/sell/affiliate/CS on?

    Now that I think I know what angle you are wanting I have a clearer picture.

    Amazon associates isn't that strict. If your wanting to use them just make sure you have a whitehat site (they do not let you apply without a site) and dmr your sources. As long as your whitehat site looks legit enough and seems like it pushes enough traffic then they will not ask about your traffic

    Now if your interested in selling, Amazon can be good. But to sell on the main pages I think it was something like you have to have 10+ positive feedback (can't fully remember).


    Anyway, If the above isn't helpful to you then again, please clarify on your true intentions :)

    I am hearing that this year Amazon passed ebay in traffic and that you only have to pay amazon if you make a sale with no listing fees

    this is starting to get interesting

    anyone here selling on Amazon is this true

    I saw somewhere a new ebook has come out about this selling on the river anyone read it yet, wondering if its worth getting

    from what I heard the code word in ebay for amazon on the forums was the river

    Anyone care to comment on there experience on Amazon or the ebook

    Depending on what you're selling, you may be able to leverage classifieds sites like backpage, kijiji, and craigslist.

    registering for Amazon is pretty strict since if you get banned the first time, second time will be really hard for you to registers since my second account gets banned also..........

    Thing is amazon will never be able to compete with ebay. Ebay is far ahead of any competitors in their market.

    of course there is alternatives. The problem is that they all suck when it comes to getting shit sold, and actually getting paid for the item.

    really wish goo gle would step there punk ass up to the plate. They are such pussies.

    Hmmm... there are alternatives like Amazon but I think that to sell your products the best option is Ebay because is the most popular.

    This might a bit unrelated to your question....

    I have both Amazon powered sites and Ebay powered sites, and in my test, Ebay site far more profitable then Amazon.
    I guess it's because of Amazon's 1 day cookie, while ebay has 7 days cookie.

    My conclusion, Ebay is still the big daddy of auction sites out there....

    Amazon's 1-day cookies makes it much more difficult to bring in earnings. I have several white-hat sites that push traffic to eBay and Amazon, and eBay has always been much more profitable.

    Amazon's site is far easier to list items, as the information is already filled out. However the problem comes in selling things like DVD's where bigtime stores have listings for a penny. You'll still make money if you Media Mail ship but it's a letdown when you see that big "used from 0.01" up there, because no matter what you want the lowest price.

    Do not use CQout they scammed me of $4

    Not much but to me it is right now and they ignored my three emails for refund that Rita's head I am going to cut off one day.

    I think differently to the crowd.
    I never forget.
