Advantages Online shopping, sell items (free listings), good range of goods & ranges, good sales process
Disadvantages The higher the price of your item, the more the fees
On Amazon, you can buy them straight from the distributors in the US at a reasonable price and you have a good range of prices to choose from depending on the condition of the item, you can buy second hand if you want to..BUYING:
My experience as a buyer at Amazon has been pleasant. You need to set up an account when you shop and you can monitor your transaction online (tracking) along with the regular updates via email that the site sends.The website has a good layout and it's easy to look for and find the item you require using the categories in which the products are arranged or you can search using the search tool which is very handy as you can also search using IBANs for books or the corresponding code for the CDs and DVDs if you have them to hand (this is handy when listing items to sell)
SELLING:Selling on Amazon is just as easy. It is free to list your item and the fees are only taken off on selling the item (consider it their commission for helping you sell the item). If you do not sell the item, you will not pay and this is one of the reasons I prefer it to other similar sites.
Their commission rates range depending on the price of the item so you need to check this for an individual item and whether it would be delivered to a domestic or international destination, it is worth comparing your returns after fees are taken off to see whether it is worth posting it over-seas, most of my listings are to domestic destinations as I find the fees less, about £0.50p or less for a £15 item.You get regular updates on enquiries on your item that Amazon sends through email with guidance on correspondence to the buyer.
In the past, I have sold some of my text books that I had from university and the transaction has gone smoothly, I am looking at selling more and have listed some more items recently.I'd recommend the site if you're into online shopping and if you want to get rid of some items you no longer need and are in usable condition. Might as well get some pennies for them:)
