    Too many eBay sellers overpay for postage and mailings. My advice is rent a postage meter with a service that gives you the proper postage rates and stamps/labels that you can print at home, so you don't have to run to the post office every time you sell. I started using pbsmartpostage by Pitney Bowes after a free trial, and it's been a life saver. to try it.

    With ebay making major changes in fees, charging more from the sellers and putting a restriction on the minimum resolutions required to upload the product’s photo.. I believe the best would be to look for an alternative which is best in the competition and which allows you to keep all your earning to yourself and not share it. Where sellers can:
    1. Create Free listings
    2. No Transaction Fees
    3. Auto sync with ebay..carry all your listings from ebay along with the ratings and feedbacks in just a click.
    4. Free integration with Google products (which auto populates the product description form for you, saving your precious time) and Google Shopping (which tells anyone who search on google to buy a product that it is available on our website, which by the way we pay for and provide you the service absolutely free)
    5. Payment option like Paypal and Amazon for the most secure transactions
    6. which does not allow you to leave a feedback for a cancelled transaction
    7. a platform that not only list your products but also organise your customers and market your product in your network
    8. a platform where you are just not dependent on ratings but also can leverage your social and professional profiles using log in through facebook, linkedin or google accounts
    9. A platform that allows you to know the counterparty and build trust on the basis of work profile, school, college and other such dimensions.
    10.Unlike ebay it has just one website (not different website for every country) so you can sell products worldwide and buy awesome products from across the globe as well
    11. Unlike Ebay you can upload any resolution image and do not need only high resolution images to upload
    12. Last but not the least it is absolutely free

    And so the website that gives you all this is

    We have released our beta version and the new website with all these points said above will be launched soon in June, 2013.

    We request all the sellers to list their product and leave us a feedback to help us improve more and give you a splendid experience of selling online.
