I have been blogging for almost a year now and I have done some research on ebay alternative sites for sellers. I continue to update my website/blog post on Alternative Auctions & Marketplaces. Almost 250 sites listed with direct links to most of them. If you’re really interested in researching what will work best for you, please check out my post at the following link:

Thanks and hope many of you will find this helpful :P

Well personally I prefer pay per bid auction sites because you can acutally get stuff so much cheaper than retail. Take Jeeler.com for example. Prices start at 10% retail and go down everytime someone bids on 'em. This is ridiculously cool, and I can't wait until they open on May 1st. I registered though and got some free bids. ;)

I welcome any and all new auction sites. After 10 years of honest selling to have this happen without an explanation leaves a really bad taste in my mouth.
It is now 2010, and ebay hasn't changed since this post, only gotten worse. I feel for you! I sold a 14kt gold herringbone necklace to a lady if Florida. eBay now requires you to take refunds even if you refuse to, the buyer will escalate the problem, eBay mostly always finds in their favor, then they tell the buyer to send the item back, I had told ebay it was a real necklace, they didn't believe me and found for the buyer. They have now reimbursed her and are trying to get the money from me!! I didn't lie in my listing, never did and sold off and on for 8ys. so I also am looking for an alternative auction site. eBay can go to h**l as far as I'm concerned, I'll never sell on there again!

Just to let you know that Paypal gave me so much of trouble afetr 8 years of being a faithful client, that I know use Monster Pay to process all my payments. I don't use eBay any-more because heir fees are madness to start with and all sellers have the obligation to use Paypal, so I now use www.snatchitall.com auction site which is free, offer stores, wanted items, etc... So far I am very pleased. Deserve more traffic though, but still very pleased

Frustrated with Ebay? There are real reasons for this, as eBay no longer wants the online auction to be the core of the business. Read the Feb 10, 2011 article in Fox Business --the CEO Donahoe stated just that. The company is changing its business focus to be a commerce site similar to Amazon. The Frustrated with Ebay?

If you are not a 'Top-reatd" seller, just get out, you are not getting the best exposure of your items, and are making less because of this.
I have migrated to Ealtbay, a site that allows items that are perfectly legal, but are banned on ebay, lets you list them for free, and you can get paid for them in any legal means --not just PayPal. Ealtbay is a good eBay alternative, try it out.

ebay is fine but the fees are just too expensive, which kinda spoils things for the small seller, ebay makes more money than the seller does in some instances. There's a new international auction at www.ebidz.eu

At eBidz Auctions it is free to list, although you can pay a very small amount for optional enhanced listings, and in which case there are then no relisting fees if your item didn't sell. The end of auction fee, only if your item sells, is just 2%. These small fees help to keep eBidz auction site up and running, and the more members join then the more popular the site will become. You can also open a free two hundred items store. So come on over and gives us a try, and bid low to get your next great bargain.

Everytime I have figured out how to make a small profit retailing on eBay, eBay very quickly finds a new way to take it.

If my net profit starts at $20, after pricing items to remain competitive,+ ebay fees,+ Paypal fees, and S&H, I am lucky to gross $5.

You have to sell mass items at a very small profit to make any money at all. And yet they keep raising fees and changing policies so fast no one has time to actually sell while trying to become re-compliant to endless new policies.

I know what you mean. I am a big St. Jude supporter and there is a brand new site only a month or so old that only charges .50 cents to post, no end fees and free site stores, and they donate a portion of all posts etc. to St. Jude. They are just now growing, but I admire what they do. It's a brother and siter team. I read an article about them on the internet. Try them out. It takes a lot of guts to take on ebay, but to have a big enough heart to want to give at the same time...I LIKE IT.
