    Hey BHatters,

    I know there has to be other sites out there that are like eBay that allow me to sell goods.

    I'm so sick of eBay lol. Im just looking for other sites that actually receive some traffic. Any advice?

    I buy quite a bit from iOffer, but it probably has a fraction of the traffic that eBay has.

    This is just a copy and paste from a 3 second Google session. I suggest you try it next time.

    Auction.com does not charge any listing or final value fees, but does charge you for optional features like bold or featured. Traffic is minimal and they're not many features.

    Bidz.com specializes entirely in jewelry. They have been very successful luring large jewelry sellers away from eBay.

    Bonanzle.com is a new site that allows you to import your existing items from eBay and Craigslist. Unlike eBay, they encourage direct contact between buyers and sellers. Easy and simple listing tool. Sellers seem to like it, but they are still pretty small.

    eBid.com has no listing fees and is growing fast with a large number of listings. They offer no auction fees for life for $99 but often offer specials off of this price.

    eCrater has a pretty good following. Quick and easy to list. I have had some success with this site. Some things sell pretty well while others don't. It's one you might want to try and see if it works for you. Listings are growing pretty fast.

    ePier.com - No Listing fees, but their final value fees are pretty high. They stress local auctions with city listings for places like Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington DC and more. It is sort of like Craigslist with an auction flavor.

    OnlineAuction.com - Basic Online Auction registration is free, but verification will cost you $4 a month, and selling will cost you $8 a month. Paying the selling fee will keep you from paying any final value fees. They have probably the largest listing base on any non-eBay site except Overstock and they have a pretty good annual membership package that can save you money. I found if I use their featured auction listings I do much better.

    Overstock.com - sells mostly overstocked surplus goods. They allow users to list auctions on their site. They do have listing fees as well as final value fees. I have tried Overstock several times with little success.

    SalvageSale.com specializes in bulk auctions and items a bit too large for your standard UPS delivery truck. A great place for consignment sellers to unload large heavy items.

    TheSOCExchange.com charges a flat rate of $1 a month or $10 a year for unlimited auction listings. I haven't heard of anyone doing very well on this site yet.

    Webidz.com - No fees to list auctions, open a store and bid, but Webidz charges $5.00 to become a verified member, and you will be charged this fee any time you change your personal information.

    Thanks for the help, however the attitude isn't necessary. I was looking for personal opinions, not what random outdated bloggers had to say (hence why I asked here).
