Used and trusted by individuals and businesses alike, eBay is the most famous online marketplace where users can buy and sell nearly any item under the sun.
Initially used mostly by everyday users trying to unload excess stuff online, eBay is now embraced by businesses, as well. Their “Seller Hub” (currently in beta testing) makes it easy for sellers to process orders, analyze performance, create marketing campaigns and more from a single interface. However, the 10% transaction cost is a bit steep, in our opinion. If you’re an individual trying to sell some extra stuff for cash, then eBay is for you…but if your E-commerce business is seriously looking to sell online, it wouldn’t hurt to check out some other alternatives. In our opinion, there are are better all-in-one E-commerce platforms that allow users to create a custom digital storefront, and even access large marketplaces full of built-in customers.

Been using for years and years and never had a bad experience, items always ship on time and in expected conditions
I love eBay as much as the next person….call me crazy but I think the platform is actually kind of clunky compared to Etsy or Bonanza
Been listing on eBay for years, just random stuff here and there. Transaction fees are still a bit steep in my opinion but I guess that’s what you’re paying for to get so many eyeballs on your stuff
