Amazon vs Not on the high street
24 Mar 2015
Just launching a product that is very unique, niche and new to the market. as an alternative to Amazon (expensive, tricky to list, brand killer) , I have applied for an account with Not on the high street .

It this a good idea? Do you value Not on the high street? Is there a catch? Any better ones worth looking at?

Thanks in advance.

Patrick,

Depending on your product there are tons of marketplaces out there worth trying out. You have to do your research and cross compare your product vs sales of like items on these certain marketplaces to see how much or if they will even sell.
To list a few of the most common in my world there are:
Etsy
Rakuten (buy.com)
eBay
Craigslist
Yahoo Shopping
Overstock.com
Zazzle

*Note that a lot of these marketplaces thrive off of artsy self-made and unique products. General items like office products don't always do well in these*

Thanks Tommy, always interesting. I have contact some of these companies, and guess what? They've not replied. Some others I am not sure would be suited for the product. Thanks for your input and prompt reaction. Take care. Patrick
