Amazon profits! Diamond review

AdvantagesHuge market, guaranteed payment, make some money from your attic

DisadvantagesVery high fees

"I’m sure we have all heard of Amazon, one of the best known on-line businesses in the world, but what is Amazon Marketplace, and why should we use it? Basically, Amazon Marketplace is an integrated part of the Amazon site, which sells new and secondhand goods through third parties. These third parties can be companies or just ‘normal’ sellers like me and you. Amazon Marketplace, actually sells the same goods as Amazon, and often at lower prices, but ..." Read review

Amazon.co.uk Marketplace

AdvantagesFantastic service, easy to use, fees are not too high in my opinion

DisadvantagesNA

"...can be viewed on the Amazon.co.uk website. Once your item has been sent, and your buyer receives there item, they then have the opportunity to give you feedback. This feedback is vital if you wish to continue with future sales, as the feedback counts towards your positivity level. Good feedback means you have a happy customer, who is also more likely to shop with you again. However, the price that your item closes at , is '''NOT''' the amount ..." Read review

'''Selling Your Stuff''' It is simple to set up a seller account, you do need a home telephone number which an automated ..." Read review

A forest of bargains!

AdvantagesSell loads of used items and buy some new.

DisadvantagesNot every item makes a profit

"...A mate of mine mentioned Amazon.co.uk so I signed up. I was unsure of the whole thing at first and buying online was a new concept. My Visa Electron card was useless on most sites but worked on Amazon so I bought several books. They arrived a few days later, well packaged and in pristine condition. I was a little disappointed however as I had spent quite a lot and had wanted secondhand books at a fraction of the price. I spent a few weeks discovering ..." Read review

Have one to sell?

AdvantagesNo fees unless you make a sale

DisadvantagesAmazon's fees are a little high

"...Amazon Marketplace. This division of amazon.co.uk allows you to list items already in Amazon's catalogue for sale whether they are new or used. They can be single or multiple items. You do not have to pay anything for this service until you make a sale. I have generally found that you can obtain a better price on Marketplace than on Ebay, although it may take you longer to sell your item. First you need to find the exact item you wish to sell by ..." Read review

A great alternative to eBay!

AdvantagesSell and buy at good prices. No listing fees or cheques to bank!

DisadvantagesHigh fees, minor recurring technical problems, some items not listed.

"There can't be many web users who haven't bought something from Amazon, or browsed their website at some time. In the past few years, Amazon have expanded from simply selling books and CDs into electrical goods and computer software. I was chatting to a friend about Amazon the other day, and was surprised to learn that he didn't know he could actually sell on Amazon, as well as buy from them... so I got my Ciao head on and decided to write a little ..."

I Got Paid Loads For Sex Tips Diamond review

Advantageseasy to use and administer

Disadvantagesnone - its that great

"...those kind folks over at Amazon.co.uk had secretly employed a psychic to read the minds of online sellers like me. For this site has started up a service which is quite unique. Unique in the sense that they offer a service which is unlike an online auction, and basically deals with straight sales, but comes with the full benefits of an online auction site. Let me not keep you in suspense any longer..... How Amazon Marketplace Works: Amazon ..." Read review

Amazon Marketplace

AdvantagesA great place to sell goods

DisadvantagesDisadvantages?!

"...aware of the concept of Amazon.co.uk and the service it provides, allowing you to buy any kind of electrical goods/DVD/CD amongst the greater selection of goods it now sells. But you can also sell things on Amazon, and buy material from third-parties rather than just through Amazon...that's where it's Marketplace comes in. When clicking on a product, take a DVD for example, you will be given the price, but also an option to buy "Used & New", which ..." Read review

My New Addiction

AdvantagesItems available that may not be in shops

DisadvantagesNothing

"I've only recently been introduced to Amazon by my daughter and now I can't stay off this site. It's basically a shopping site where you can buy just about anything, both new and used. What I really like about the site is that they sell a lot of brands that may have been discontinued in the shops or items that may not be available locally. The layout of the site is very easy to figure out and looks professional whilst staying user friendly. Another ..." Read review

Great for both buying and selling

AdvantagesVariety, ease of navigation, detailed seller information and ease of communication.

DisadvantagesFixed delivery charges and commission.

"...made my first purchase from Amazon.co.uk direct, and it arrived quick-sharp and at a reasonable proce. My only quar is that they fix their delivery prices and so that certainly bumps up your price. For that reason I decided I would look at independant sellers on the site - the marketplace. Again, cautious as I am, I went in for the kill and found an item I wanted at a reasonable price. I'm a bit of a bookworm, so I went straight to the book section, ..." Read review
