Amazon.com Better Than Ebay Says eBay Power Seller

amazoncom-stores.jpgIf you’re selling on eBay you are probably tired of the fees – a listing fee, a transaction fee and a fee for selling via PayPal.

Amazon.com, as you know, sells its own items and also helps businesses sell their own things as well. It’s a partnership – if you are successful Amazon.com is successful. It’s clearly a much better choice (over eBay), especially for selling media such as cd’s and books, according to Startupnation.com blogger and eBay power selling Kevin Harmon.
In his podcast with Rich Sloan (co-founder Startupnation.com) he gives a good overview of whether one should use eBay, Amazon.com or start their own web site for selling online. One is not necessarily better than the other, it really depends on your expertise and where your customers are. In fact Kevin advises to use a variety of online sales methods.
Amazon.com had more pageviews than eBay and has no listing fee. In addition eBay’s listings only stay up for 30 days, on Amazon.com they stay up “forever” or until the item is sold.
I highly encourage you to hear the entire podcast here.
