eBay is the granddaddy of online auction sites. You can sell your stuff at a fixed price or as an auction where buyers bid for your goods. The site was the first of its kind and the most well known, so it brings in a ton of buyers. But it also has more competition, more fees, and stricter payment terms. While the site does allow some types of credit card transactions, it’s primarily PayPal-driven. (You can see eBay’s payment policies here.)
Best for: Highly sought-after collectibles and smaller items that ship cheaply. Do you have a vintage Transformers lunch box? It’ll probably do well on eBay. But read the fee schedule carefully before you go on a listing spree. Because if your items don’t sell, you’ll still pay the upfront fees.
