No other working auction site than eBay?

    Can it really be the case that out of the numerous auction sites all over the internet there is only one that really works?

    I tried so many sites, but never had any sales except on eBay. And Amazon sometimes. And one single sale on etsy, after the item has been there for 3 month.

    eBay has high fees, weak seller protection and quite some scam buyers, so was looking for an alternative.

    Anyone has any decent success with other sites?

    have you tried Facebook yet? Why not create a sales page for your product, scrape targeted leads and promote Facebook ads?

    There are no other sites that gets eyeballs on your listings like eBay or Amazon. Etsy has been great and growing, but only certain kind of items sell there.

    yes, you are right. I am using facebook ads for teespring campaigns.
    But the problem is, how can you sell affiliate products or dropshipped products there?
    I do not have a landing page for fb ads for the products, I would have to setup an online shop on a website.

    ebay has a major case of first mover advantage. And it's a self fulfilling prophecy, sellers go where all the buyers are, and buyers go where all the sellers are listing their stuff.
