Ecommerce Dropship Tips: 3 Top eBay Alternatives

eBay dropship sellers alternativesMany eBay dropship sellers are looking into finding alternatives that have a more seller friendly playing field, plus lower fees.

There has been a huge uproar, and rightly so, over FeeBay’s decision to begin charging fees on shipping costs. Sellers have already been bombarded with one hefty fee increase after another during the past few years of the current CEO’s “disruptive innovation” and attempts to make eBay into a carbon copy of Amazon or Overstock.com. Many dropship sellers, who are simply fed up with the constant fee increases and too-stringent rules, consider having to pay fees on shipping costs the proverbial last straw---and are casting about for other venues and friendlier marketplaces to rake their business.

So, are there any viable alternatives to eBay for dropship sellers?

Yes! There are several and you might benefit by learning a little about them if you are thinking of packing up and leaving eBay. Here are three of the eBay alternatives that deserve a second glance:

  • Bonanza---This alternative started out as Bonanzle and then was able to get the website name it wanted in the first place and is referred to as “The Ranch” on eBay discussion boards as it is against the rules to mention an eBay competitor by name. Bonanza is growing by leaps and bounds and is attracting more and more buyers and sellers alike. The fee structure is better than eBay and the policies more seller friendly.

  • eCrater---This alternative to eBay for dropship sellers is showing continual, steady growth as eBay sellers jump ship and head here for lower fees and better, more equitable policies.

  • eBid---With over 16 thousand new members joining eBid each month and over 4 million listings, eBid has also been voted the best eBay alternative by Webuser Magazine and TopTenReviews. Plus, eBid has been officially selected by Google as one of it's first Google shopping marketplace partners which means your eBid items have never had a bigger audience. This may be the hottest eBay alternative around for dropship sellers!

If you are tired of the Big Brother/Stepford Wives mentality that seems to prevail on eBay these days as far as sellers are concerned, you may want to check out these alternatives for your dropship sales!
