Appendix C. Other Auction Sites

eBay may be the biggest game in town, but it’s not the only one. Other auction sites let you use the same buying and selling strategies you’d use on eBay, but they also offer some different approaches: forums for buyer and seller to haggle over a price, auctions that keep snipers at bay by automatically extending an auction when a bid is placed during the final minutes, and lower fees—even no fees.

Hundreds of auction sites have tried to take on eBay, and hundreds have failed. It’s not hard to attract sellers by promising lower fees or abolishing fees altogether. The problem is bringing in buyers—without them, the sellers simply have no one to sell to.
