Free Selling
« on: July 29, 2007, 05:15:29 PM »
Hey everyone, I am new to this forum.
Just wondering if any of you have heard of eBid  <affiliate link removed by admin - NO SPAMMING!>
They offer sellers a chance to sell for free (no listing fee or final value fee) for a one off charge of about 99 USD.
Is this a good offer? It sounds good to me. Are other online auctions better?

Cheers

my biggest problem with them is I can never remember the url (that it's ebid.net rather than .com)

I'm a gold member (whatever that means) but never listed there.

http://www.ebid.net , with some 432,000 listings, is in 5th place with about 80% as many as http://uk.ebid.net :

http://www.powersellersunite.com/auctionsitewatch.php

Then again, since you signed off with Cheers, maybe that's what you're talking about.

How good a site is depends on what you're selling.  Free listings don't mean anything if people aren't buying.  Yahoo auctions was solidly in second place before they closed shop, and they didn't charge ANY fees.

My gosh..I hadn't viewed that link since Yahoo retired in May.

Look at how low Overstock is on the list.

Bidville is moving up and so is blujay.

Wagglepop has dropped off the list totally.

BT...I'm not logged in and I can see it.
I just have the link saved in my favorites and I never bothered to sign into PSU.

Thanks BF...I gotta remember to put my specs on before viewing sites.

I see the chart in Advanced Browser. In Opera, I get a pop-up that says "Problem encountered while decoding data. Possibly due to corrupted data.

FWIW, I show "log in" as an option when I view that page, and it asks me for username and password to view the charts.

I keep telling BTPS there is something wrong with her computer, but she insists there isn't. I know there's something wrong with mine, but I deal with it.

So, back to OP's question - is paying the flat fee worth it on ebid? 

I didnt know that they had a pay $99.00 instead of paying FVF option, but I havent been there in a long time.

I'd say try some single listings first to give it a test drive to see if worth it.  After all, every item is different, as is every site.  Ie: on ebay there's some items that i've tried that I can barely sell above cost, whereas on other sites I can get full retail for the exact same item.

I try most selling venues at least twice.

Especially if they're free....that's just getting my products out there for more and for free.

Give it a try and let us know how you do.

Cheers!

I was only stating it here because if you post somethign for folks to see --- it's nice if they don't have to register to see the information.

Other then that I could careless!

You just got done telling us you can't see what everyone else can see, then tell me there's nothing wrong with your computer?

This is not a putdown, but you can't fix the problem until you admit it's broken.
