Fixed price selling on

In: Information

15 Apr 2009

eBay isn’t just eBay. The eBay corporation also owns a site called (, which lets anyone sell certain types of merchandise in a fixed-price format. List your items for sale, wait for someone to buy them, and then collect the money. In this respect works a lot like the Amazon Marketplace which, by the way, is another viable place for you to sell your stuff. specializes in specific types of merchandise: books, CDs, DVDs, videotapes, video games, computers and software, and general consumer electronics (cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, home audio, televisions, and the like). Buyers can purchase items from multiple sellers, and have all their purchases consolidated into a single shopping cart and checkout. They make one payment, and then eBay deposits funds into each seller’s account individually.

To sell on, all you have to do is click the Sell Your Stuff link in the left-hand column. When the Sell Your Items page appears, select a category and click the Continue button. You list each item by using the item’s UPC or ISBN code. then inserts pre-filled item information from a massive product database. (It’s the same database that feeds eBay’s pre-filled information in the same categories.) There are no listing fees, but you do have to pay a commission when an item sells. You’ll pay a 15% commission on items under $50, and lower commissions as the price rises. Instead of a buyer paying you directly, collects the payment; the site sends you your payment every two weeks.
