C2C Auction Software (i.e. eBay for my site)
26 Apr 2007
Hi there,

Does anyone know if there is some software out there, which will enable me to run an auction on my own website? A bit like a white label eBay-style solution I suppose.

I know its a bit off topic but i 'm struggling to find anything and would appreciate some help from people in this general space.

Thanks in advance,

Hi

Take a look at this www.kiosk2.com/pages/?buildans

I use it on many sites and it's highly customizable.

Hi hartster,

Kiosk2 has posted an affiliate link to a tool that creates sites that link to eBay.

I think what you want is to run your own auctions. That has been discussed before: run your own auction tools.

Hope that helps!

Hi

Sorry - the main site is www.buildanichestore.com

If you are looking to run your own ebay site then PHP Auction is great at www.phpauction.net/ but my advice is to not waste your time trying to compete with eBay. Instead, use Build A Niche Store to display relevant ebay cats on your site and get commission and traffic to your site working WITH eBay rather than against them.

I spent 2 years and a lot and time and cash trying to create an auction site and unless you can get lots of listings on there it's a no go. I know others that have tried and failed too. Even the likes of QXL can't compete.

Just my ten penneth
