Any BUYERS have new sites to recommend? Ebay was best when it was simple person-to-person transactions and not a million folks running a cheap business.

I thing Sohaila is right, eBay are the biggest out there and the fraffic they have is top of the listy, but they can't keep making changes and charging the way they do.
I haven't jumped ship completly, but i have moved lots of my stuff over to other site. One i found is a new site lots of talk about it because it is free. I have found the only think ebay has over them at the min is trafic as they offer loads of freebies and dont ask for one penny from the seller not even FVF. It has been live for around 4 weeks and seems to be doing OK, I have made one sale (not a millionare yet) but pleased at such an early stage. www.cheekyoffer.com well worth a look Oh and it has an auto relist which is great at such an early stage. Means i dont have to keep going back and forth to see whats happening to my store.(and even that free)

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.
