Why Aren't Sellers Moving to eBay Alternatives?
By: Ina Steiner
I am a long time eBay seller and my search for a new but effective online selling venue began years ago. Ecommercebytes.com, toptenreviews.com, and alexa.com have been my sources for ideas and information while on my quest for a new venue.
I have registered and tried over 13 different ones. I agree like many, that there are already discovered great alternatives to eBay, my personal favorite is webstore.com.
Your Seller Choice Awards are becoming more known and popular, proving my point that between sites like this one, facebook, twitter etc...that people have and are discovering alternatives to eBay.
So now to my great question for you...Sellers now know they do have alternatives, but why are they still not relocating from eBay? The biggest answer of course is where the most buyers are, but if enough sellers set up camp somewhere else, and buyers knew where they were going, I believe that buyers would follow.
I would love to hear what you think, I truly believe alternatives to eBay have been well known enough for awhile, but sellers are still not moving (its like they are waiting for the great migration or something).
Anyways, this is just my outside point of view, I don't think its just location or lack of known eBay alternatives that are keeping sellers on eBay. I think this is worth checking out and would make a great story.
Thank you for your time,
