      Has anyone used iOffer as an alternative to eBay?

      Hi, I just came across iOffer.com for selling my products. Has anyone here ever used this site as an alternative to Ebay. I just want to give a try. Can anyone please provide me with any information?

      iOffer is an online trading community and this adopts negotiated commerce model similar to flea markets and garage sales. Instead of auctioning an item off like you would on eBay, offers are made to the seller, and the seller has the option of accepting the offer or declining it.

      Here are some positives to using iOffer verses eBay:

      • They rank #2 according to the Power Sellers Unite.
      • Lots of improvement to their site have been made over the past year.
      • Their sales, members, and items are growing daily.
      • Free to list items

      On the other hand, here are some negatives to iOffer verses eBay:

      • eBay is #1 in rankings
      • No site has as much traffic as eBay
      • There seem to be tons of counterfeit and second rate merchandise listed on iOffer

      It’s nice to hear about this website. You mentioned the free listings. Are their any fees involved in the selling process?

      iOffer allows you list all your items for free. This means no charges, but yes, you will be charged and only when your items are sold and if you prefer premium listing services.

      In the premium listing service, you will be charged some fees for highlighting, bolding, and listing your products on the home page.

      Sellers can list their items on asking price or based on request offers. The buyers either buy products on asking price or make a new offer. iOffer also allows user to post “want ads” without any charge or barter.

      Most importantly, all kind of transactions are completely recorded and are viewed by other users.

      Gr8. So, SellerTom, do you think this website is a better alternative for Ebay?

      From the sellers point, this site is a good alternative and competent for eBay. It never hurts to try selling your merchandise at another place. Many people have had much success at iOffer, on the other hand, some people just prefer eBay. You don’t know until you try it.

      Another thing I should point out is iOffer has now become more famous because of its great tool called Mr. Grabber.
