Amazon Vs eBay (6)

sell sussessfully online
This is a short series of posts comparing selling successfully on eBay and on Amazon from the seller’s perspective. This time I am looking at selling formats.


Auctions – There is no contest here, literally no contest.  eBay wins!

Fixed Price – Certainly until recently there was no real contest here, Amazon was king.  However, 2008 has seen eBay move more towards fixed price listings while downplaying auctions.  The “best match” searches being just the last in a series of moves towards encouraging corporate sellers rather than hobbyist sellers.  So far, however, the advantage still lies with Amazon.

Result; Draw


Amazon            4.5

eBay                0.5
