Ebid.net, the Ebay Alternative!!! Ok, well… maybe not exactly unless you live in the UK where Ebid.net can actually be considered as a formidable competitor. For those of you that are unaware, Ebid.net is an established online auction company since 1988.
Although, Ebid.net has been in business for quite a while now and operates in over a dozen countries, it is still relative tiny compared to Ebay. So if you are currently selling on Ebay, you can’t expect to do a switchover and get the same amount of sales you got on Ebay. However, Ebid.net may still be something you may want to consider to take a look at. It may very well serve as secondary source of traffic for many auction sellers. And if you were suspended from Ebay for no apparent reason, or just fed up with Ebay fees; then all the more reason for you to take a good look into Ebid.net.
Before I finish, I don’t want to leave the impression that Ebid is Ebay but a a lot smaller. There are differences besides the size of the companies. Ebid gives sellers free listing, a lower final value fee, and also lower subscription fee on their seller storefronts. On top of this they also got some little other features like Buddy Points and Happy Hour Auctions. Ebid is not going to be right for everyone, since I know some of you are extremely busy and can’t be bothered to spend your time on something that has significantly lower traffic than Ebay. But for those of you with time on your hands, I definite recommend taking at least a peak at www.Ebid.net to see if it is right for you.
