The Webs Best Online Auction Sites


The best online auction links for buyers and sellers are - not surprisingly - eBay, eBay and eBay. eBay began the entire wacky world of online auctions back on the Labor Day weekend of 1995. By any definition, this is one of the most successful sites in the world, and certainly offers the greatest number and variety of goodies for buyers. Generally, sellers make more money on eBay than elsewhere.

Sometimes, though, we might wonder about the future of eBay, because the sheer volume of goods for sale might bring this giant to a halt. Today, for example, there are 425,641 sports card auctions. Many of these are dutch auctions - meaning the sellers are offering multiple items. So the actual number of cards for sale is even higher than the gigantic list of auctions. If you are a seller trying to auction a few cards, and you aren't really skilled in the business like Auction Genius Course students are, what are your chances of selling? Is it possible that in the future sellers might be looking for other options if they can't sell their goodies?

Here are some of the best online auction links if you're looking for life outside eBay:

Yahoo Auctions: (http.auctions.yahoo.com)
Being Yahoo, this is naturally the biggest competitor to giany eBay.

Amazon Auctions: (http://amazon.com)
Amazon was more serious about their online auctions in the past, but has added many more retail buying features in past years.

ePier Online Auctions: (http://epier.com)
One of the best alternative online auction links is ePier. These folks stuck it out for 2 years before making a profit, but are doing well now. As sellers, we can only cheer about the competition.

Bidville: (http://www.BidVille.com)
This general online auction site is small fry, compared to the giants, but depending on what you're selling, this might be a big advantage.

uBid: (http://www.ubid.com)
uBid is one of the best online auction sites for buying multiple items for resale. Its claim to fame is "bid on brand names starting at $1".

Bidz: (http://web-1.bidz.com)
Bidz is the home of the "2 minute" auctions which are fast and lots of fun. Warning: it's easy to get caught up in the auction fever of the moment and get carried away, so approach with caution.

These are some of the very best online auction links, but it's by no means a complete list. The opportunities for online auction selling are truly staggering and smart sellers neglect no possibilities.

Sydney Johnston, the AUCTION QUEEN, was one of the original sellers on eBay and has been selling on eBay since the winter of 1996. She is the originator and teacher of the famous Auction Genius Course, a powerful 16 hour multi media seminar on the Internet that teaches her students how to sell on ebay.
