I began my eBid evolutionary journey as a casual browser when I was sent to explore this 'new site' in 1998/99, whilst working for a newspaper. At that point, we were all just getting to grips with the fact that we could buy and sell via the Internet, so the prospect of a UK based auction...

“A site to rival eBay?”

Not many bidders, less choice of goods than eBay, ...

I am an eBay addict, so what am I doing writing about a rival auction site? I stumbled on eBid by accident, being desperate for an item that wasn't available on eBay. I did a search on google for auction sites, and so found eBid. I have been using the site for a couple of years now. In case...

“THE NEW EBAY”

This IS the new 'ebay'. Many years ago, I discovered ebay and quickly became a devotee, having several times created and deleted accounts for one reason or another. Over my time on there I became more and more disgruntled with it. This is due, partly because of the new meanness of the buyers who...

Low fees, easy to buy and sell

Much less sells than

Many people rubbish Ebid. But to be fair I have found it be to a fair to good second site to E Bay - although for sellers the traffic is much slower, and I agree with many comments seen that compared to E Bay Things do sell slower. But on the plus side the fees are much lower. For a normal Seller...

It's all so hush-hush!

****For Buyers***** This is a great site for buyers because so many buyers have their noses stuck in Ebay that they often forget that there are great bargains to be had on other auction sites out there! Since the Ebay fee increases, many Ebay sellers have flocked over to Ebid as it's free for...

not enough people know about it!

Hi, I am a member (buyer and seller) in several auction sites (ebid, ebay, QXL.com, amazon etc) but I'd just like to say out of every auction site I have came across so far - ebid is the best! The first distinct advantage it has is that its FREE! Yes you read it right - you can sell an item on...

not as big as ebay... duh who is?

As online auction sites go this is the best i've seen. I think the easiest way to give you a true idea of how good it is is to directly compare it to the current 'best' auction site which is ebay listing Fees: Well as we all probably know by now ebay has recently raised all of there fees making...

As a keen eBay user, but SICK of the fees imposed on almost everything when selling, I decided to look for an alternative. I found all the usual ones, but none held any interest for me, especially as they were smaller, had way less buyers, but still charged fees. Then I found eBid. Which was 100%...

www.ebid.co.uk is a site I only really noticed around 6 weeks ago. I had never heard of it before, and, as some of the non-ebay auction sites are a bit empty, I wasn't expecting much. So, imagine my surprise to find there were thousands and thousands of items on there! Okay, so not as many as...

Free to list, easy to navigate,

Not many buyers.

I have been a user of e-bid for a while now, and am still not sure about whether this site is as good as it makes out. I found the site through a seller on Ebay, who pointed me in the direction of Ebid when the fees on Ebay were upped yet again, and as a small seller there was little profit to be...
