  • ebid

    I was wondering if anyone has any recent experience, either as a seller or buyer, with ebid. I have been having a look at it recently and feel it is rather like ebay used to be (before all the shops etc)
    Any thoughts?

    I'd honestly not heard of ebid until now, I will take a look.. It's worldwide, It does look and work quite similar to ebay.
    I can't say much more as I have never used it but I will continue to explore it over the next couple of days, it enforces Paypal which is a fantastic point in my books.

      Hello,
      I have used eBid before and still have some items on there - i set it up to be honest as i was sick of the extortionate prices eBay started to charge. But the drawback with eBid is that it just doesn't have the massive customer base - there are some people trading on there - but i have had a lot of lookers but no bids for a long time.

      If you can point your custmers to the site and to your items then it is very cost effective as they do not charge listing fees for certain levels and their final value fee is way more reasonable than the 12% it is soon going to be on eBay!!

      as a stand alone auction site - i have never had a good response - but others may have been more successful than me!!

      hope that helps

        Out of interest, how much traffic do you get from eBid? Are you able to remove things for free from eBid if you sell elsewhere?

          You can close a listing anytime without penalty (unless it is an auction with a bid on it) but if you use the 'run til sold' listing you can remove or add anytime.

          i have had a couple of costumes i am selling on since July 2010 - altogether there have been 350 views at the most...so not masses. But i guess it depends upon what you are selling.

          hope that helps x
