Auction Sites & Alternative Marketplaces

Alternatives to ebay - An auction is a process of buying and selling goods or services by offering them up for bid, taking bids, and then selling the item to the highest bidder. In economic theory, an auction may refer to any mechanism or set of trading rules for exchange. The possibilities of online auction sites are many and they are designed to be profitable for you and the auction house/owner/charity at the same time. What some have failed to realize is that we have an whole world beyond eBay. We collect that new world and list them here for you in an handy format.

Alternatives to ebay - If you wish to step beyond using someone else's auction site we also include links to software, developers and all the info you will need to step into business setting up your own auction site.

Finally don't forget the is also a whole auction world outside your computer and the internet. We want to support all forms of auction and market place so we also list the traditional auction houses. Just in case you feel like using your legs rather then you mouse finger.


Alternatives to ebay - was setup with the sole intention of helping independent sites get started. The web site acts as a junction pulling in searches on common keywords & phases people use when they want something other then ebay auctions. Using the combined efforts of all members to promote the idea that the is an alternative to ebay. This is how we brand our members sites.

We believe it's too difficult for a single site now to take market share from ebay. There massive resources can not be match by any newcomers. But they do make mistakes and both buyers and sellers do look for alternatives. So if you can't be a single alternatives we think the only other option is to give a choice as a group.

Each member promotes their own site as normal but also carries a link to the brand list - the brand being "The is an alternative to ebay". So if your visitor does not find what they want on your site they may find it on another member site. By generating such a circle of traffic we keep these visitors within the brand, we buildup another option for people and then rather then you trying to take a slice from ebay you compete with a much more achievable slice of the brand "The is an Alternative To Ebay".We don't say it's easy but if two hands are better then one, how about 200 ? or 2,000 ?
