What are some good alternatives to Ebay?

November 12th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have some vintage, punk and alternative styles of clothing and shoes to sell. None of it is handmade so Etsy is not an option. I have had it with Ebay and their fee hikes and screwy policies and would like to know of some other viable online options for selling platforms.
If I wanted to simply get rid of things, I could put them outside and let the neighbors have at it, but I’m trying to raise a little cash here. I am interested in online options only, thanks.

I had some luck selling a few newer items on a regional newsgroup on Vampirefreaks. But I personally prefer selling via consignment at bricks and mortar stores for the vintage pieces. One of the consignment shops I work with sells almost exclusively vintage clothing. I rotate out 50 pieces every six months and she normally sells about 4-5 pieces a month for me, with a 50/50 split on each sale. The downside is that I have to wait for the monthly payout and sales have been slower lately. The upside is I don’t have to spend time writing extensive descriptions, taking photos, and getting hit with fees even if something doesn’t sell.

Ebay has definitely gotten more annoying lately. I’m not a big fan of how they’ve restructured leaving feedback. I’d prefer to know about non-paying bidders.

    Craigslist.org
    Amazon.com marketplace

    both are free to list but amazon charges a fee if product is sold.

    I’ve had a lot of success both selling and buying through Kijiji.
    Have also purchased a number of items through Amazon but have never sold through them… I agree, used to sell andf buy through Ebay on a regular basis but no longer… Paypal is also an issue
