eBay Alternative: Finding Auction Sites like eBay

Looking for an eBay alternative. Well, there are a lot of Auction sites like eBay, and since the recent shake up in the eBay selling community more and more people are looking for alternatives to eBay. Now that eBay is implementing changes, unhappy sellers are trying to find a auction sites like eBay, that are not actually run by eBay or any eBay affiliates..

Unfortunately for its competitors, eBay has a very large stake in the online marketplace. However, there are some auction sites like eBay where you can sell your goods.

The two main eBay alternatives to eBay I use are, and Craigslist.

  • is a great place if you are selling books, music, DVDs, video games, or other electronics. It is very easy to use compared to eBay. All you have to do is find the item you want to sell, write a couple sentence description about its condition, and set your price. One of the best things about Amazon is that it is very straight forward, and you have to spend almost no time answering emails from buyers. This is my number 1 alternative to ebay!
  • If you want to sell a small number of items on a personal level without having to deal with eBay fees, or PayPal holding your money, then I recommend Craigslist. It is very easy to use, you get paid in cash, and you don't have to ship anything. I like to use craigslist for all of my larger items.
There are several auction sites like eBay that are increasing in popularity as eBay sellers flee:
  • Bidville is an auction site like eBay. It the second largest online auction site after eBay, and is a true eBay alternative. They do not charge you a listing fee, so you can list as many items as you like. They do charge a Final Value Fee, but it is low at 5% for items that sell for less than $25. If you love the auction format, but hate eBay, Bidville may be right for you.
  • eCrater is the third largest online store front. They are very easy to deal with, everything is completely free, and they help you set up an online storefront in minutes that will connect to
  • Blujay is the fourth largest, but fastest growing online marketplace. The items posted there also show up on froogle, and it is free. This is a great eBay alternative because Sellers on Blujay can post unlimited ads, 4 photos per ad, with up to 180 day listing periods all for free. And like eCrater, every blujay member gets an online webstore to showcase their items.
Just remember, when looking for an eBay alternative, make sure to do your research and find somewhere you can really be happy with. The best thing about eBay is the free traffic. With most of the other auction sites like eBay you are going to have to work harder to get eyeballs on your listings.

If you have any experience with these eBay alternatives, or use other auction sites like eBay, please let us know about your experience.

Banjo Tooie - Walkthrough, Rom, Cheats, FAQ

Banjo Tooie is easily the best sequel that has ever come out on the Nintendo 64. I have created a shrine of Banjo Tooie information. YOu will find links to Walkthroughs, Roms, Cheats, and FAQ.

Banjo Tooie is the sequel to Banjo Kazooie. It is a platform / puzzle / action adventure game that is hours of non-stop fun. However, there are some tricky puzzle solving spots (see the list of resources below for the best Banjo Tooie FAQ / Walkthrough ever made)!

Banjo Tooie is similar to Banjo Kazooie, in that you are trying to collect Jiggies (the jigsaw pieces) and to stop Grunhilda's sisters from restoring Grunihlda to her original form.

Banjo Tooie is groundbreaking because the levels are not stand alone areas that you only visit once. In many cases you have to travel back through levels once you learn a new skill in order to progress. This is one of the first games to require re-visitation of levels on any gaming system.

Banjo Tooie Cheats

Enter the witch's head on Spiral Mountain to find Cheato. One cheat will be revealed for every five Cheato pages that you find. Other cheats are revealed by finding Mystery Eggs hidden throughout the game. The cheats are entered in the Mayahem Temple near Wumba's Wigwam. You will need grenade eggs to enter the Mayahem Temple.

The following is a list of some of the codes, to activate each cheat, spell out the code inside the Temple:

Code effect:
  • FEATHERS or CHEATO SREHTAEF - Double feather carrying capacity
  • EGGS or CHEATO SGGE - Double egg carrying capacity
  • FALLPROOF or CHEATO FOORPLLAF - No damage when falling
  • HOMING - Eggs home in on nearest target
  • HONEYBACK or CHEATO HONEYBACK - Infinite health and air
  • CHEATO NESTKING - Infinite eggs and feathers
