Signed up for lifetime.Figured even if I sold nothing it would spread my name on the search engines...Nope,does not even do that,they are so far down on google and others as to not even make a ripple.Listed about 30/40 good selling items that sell daily on my site and ebay and I have yet to sell one thing.Saw a message about poor sales and needing more listings a month or so ago saying they would kick me off...I figured BFD...Now they are sending me bills for 67 cents and sh*...Laughable company.They did find a niche though,screw people by charging so little that people just write it off as a bad decision...I actually forgot I was on there,total waste of time and money....All that being said,if you have 50 bucks to waste you might as well waste it on ebid.

Ebid is an outstanding site. The staff are so helpful. This is one of the safest and greatest places to trade.

Ebid is just not worth your money. I've been on it for YEARS as an alternate selling platform. I did sell a few things way back when but nothing in the last 10 years....NOT 1 THING. I get an email question about once a year and then never hear back. You won't make any sales. I've been an ebayer for 19 years and as much as that site sucks with the high fees and ridiculous policies (especially their return policy).....SCAM HEAVEN....at least you will sell things there. I do about $700-$1000/month without a lot of work. Ebid $0/month

Excellent experience for buyer and seller alike. Far better than eBay for selling with no listing fees, no rip-off charges on top of postage, and only 3% commission instead of the 10% eBay charge. Also friendly support staff

OVER ALL THIS SITE IS 100 TIMES BETTER THAN EBAY! You can't complain with the listing fees for sellers on Ebid. They are almost non existant! When it comes to selling on ebay I feel as if I am selling on a facist website that nickels & dimes you to death. I also feel as if everytime I log into Ebay's website they have their gestapo like PC web police breathing down my neck watching my every move. On Ebid I feel none of this! Just a free open website where sellers and buyers can come together and sell through paypal or some other outside money collector if one does not trust the other. To all you sellers out their on Ebay! Come over to ebid and help make this place bigger and better than ebay.

I found a wide range of great items on eBid, and the item I bought is fantastic, and was packaged well and arrived quickly. I'm sure I'll be buying more items on eBid!

Yes eBid dosnt have the Sales as other sites like eBay But I find that people try to sell goods at twice the price on eBid than eBay.Then moan that they have no sales.
What do you expect

I bought a garage door opener and it didn't work so I sent it back to seller. They refuse to give me a refund even though it was undamaged and in original packaging with a note inside box. There is no enforcement for EBID to make sure this doesn't happen. I'll stick with EBAY. Never had a problem with EBAY.

Review by Sumbunniesmuddah Fixamac4 months ago
Signed up as a life time seller+ for £49.99 4 month ago. I've listed direct thermal labels (shipping solutions/postage address labels/thermal printers etc) and so far had a whopping total of 6 views!
And a grand total of ZERO sales!
I am only competing with 1 other seller on there and undercut him by far.
On eBay I sell on average 20/day in comparison
So basically I've wasted £50!
The site is very hard to navigate. Whilst setting up the shop option, you have to select font (text) colours and background colours...the only way to do this is by inputting the hex colour code which, unless your a web designer, you'd not have a clue how to get round this problem on the site.
You can become a seller on the site for free...alas, there will be no picture of your product in searches etc so the buyer cannot see your item. As if your like me, when browsing items for sale I always look at the pictures/thumbnails and if a pic catches my eye...then and only then would I read the title....therefore you have no choice but to pay for a life time subscription which should cost £99/life ...but there are always many offers for this service for half price.
4 months - 6 views - 0 sales!

Fastest shipping, just as fast as amazon.
Review by Fatish Keneley4 months ago
There is a reason why eBid never details sales. It's because they are few to list. This site is all about getting people to list items and extract upfront and reoccurring fees.
Some of fees seem moderate, which encourages sellers to list more and more.
Reviews of the site are either scams or naive of e-commerce. They tout as a great site due to the low cost of listing but nothing about # of views and sales volume
Ebid is quite happy to avoid information on sales and collect their fees.
Example: After a number of years listing on both eBay and eBid,
# of sales - eBay 55,000 eBid -1
sales $'s - eBay $275,000 ebid - $18
The cold hard facts, --- eBid aggressively attracts sellers but is not a serious e-commerce site
Sellers don't waste your time and money.

I'm not sure how e-Bid won any awards. I've been with them over 9-yrs, purchased the lifetime membership, deleted and reposted my items. NOT ONE SINGLE SALE. My items sell on all other website and not a sale on e-Bid. I lowered my price by 50% and still no sales.
I'm better off paying the fees on other sites than wasting my time loading items on e-Bid. I would not recommend this site to anyone. Wasted hours for nothing. NOT A GOOD ROI
Review by Ajeeth4 months ago
Having been pretending their lifetime buyer+ is half price at 49.99 for TEN YEARS; it has never in that time been anything other so I don't trust this company; also hardly any stuff on it so even if you did pay them their £50 it'll not be around for much longer so you'd lose it.

Bought a garage door opener remote on EBID. The remote didn't work so I sent it back in original package undamaged with a note with all information. The seller ignored my request for a refund and there is no procedure for EBID to enforce refunds.
I'll stick with EBAY as I have never had a problem with EBAY.

There are things I like and things I don't like. I like that eBid allows me to have a store for a low cost, and that I can list many items. I like that they charge a reasonable fee for using their site. I like the ease of listing auctions and manually relisting auctions. I don't like the lack of "foot traffic", and that their listing program is difficult to use (I haven't managed it yet). I'm happy to be on eBid and plan to continue using them.
Review by Gweyn4 months ago
I contacted ebid regarding an error code preventing me from listing and they disable my account, that makes no sense, then they as ask a question totally unrelated to anything about who somebody not even telling me they are dealing with my problem, i answer even so they are rude and they ask who somebody is and then giving out their full details including the 3rd parties address! In my book that is unlawful, releasing somebody else’s address for starters and it is certainly unprofessional and shows a lack of customer service.
I had my account for 10 years and they closed it down. Be warned! Do not upgrade cause that will happen and you lose your money, ebid is a dangerous con.
Review by Kennieth4 months ago
Several 5* reviews which remains a mystery to me when they don't report sales. It is clear that most of these reviews are left by eBid stalwarts who remain on the site for forum use.
eBid will NEVER be an alternative to eBay; how can they be when most people have never heard of them?
Offers have been made to the owners to advertise at fairs etc. and these have been deleted from the forums. The cynical view is, therefore, that the owners are quite happy with the £50 joining fees with as little as possible to do for the money.

Easy selling platform. Ebid is set up so each transaction goes smoothly. Highly recommend selling on Ebid.
