Bonanza is an online marketplace where you set up a seller’s booth and post ads for your stuff at a fixed price. The site doesn’t charge per listing fee, but it does take a small percentage of your sales.

Bonanza has two great features that set it apart from eBay

  • The site itself has a clean look that really plays up the item photos, unlike the somewhat cluttered appearance of eBay listings.
  • You get more checkout options: PayPal, Google Checkout, and Amazon Checkout.

Best for: Jewelry, watches, and accessories. The site has a gift ideas section, and these popular items appear more frequently than other stuff.
