Is there an alternative to ebay shop ???
25 Jun 2010
I really cannot afford ebay shop but am wondering if I could make a difference with something else. May be a one off payment or free software. Something that would show visual or listed titles of catergories of items I sell. I am sure many of you know more and could help me.

Thanks very much.

Hi alpine,

There's plenty of software to create your own independent shop but the huge advantage of eBay is that there are already lots of buyers on the site. If you have your own shop off-eBay there will be lots of work to do to bring buyers in.

If you just want to show items you have for sale try an auction gallery or a custom-built template.

Can the auction gallery be used for buy it now listings. And is this independently offered software you are referring to or is the auction gallery part of the ebay shop you are talking about. Thanks very much.

Yes, galleries can be used for BIN listings and they are third-party software. There used to be a few different free galleries available but the main one now is Vendio Gallery.
