I really get excited when eBay increases their fees (I’m being serious!). Do you think I’m crazy?

Despite the fact many merchants are leaving eBay and selling on other sites (like Amazon.com) eBay just can’t be beat in many ways.

So I wrote this:

The TOP 10 Reasons You Can’t Ignore Selling on eBay (for U.S.-based Sellers):

1. No other site has the GLOBAL reach and MASSIVE audience for products that you CAN’T Sell on Amazon (Think: cars, boats, RVs, motorcycles, houses, vintage/used Clothing, vintage memorabilia, and more).

2. eBay is the ONLY site (aside from Amazon) with a MASSIVE audience AND built-in buyer and seller protection (buyer and seller ratings, Paypal payment verification and seller protection, etc.)

3. eBay is the ONLY MASSIVE e-Commerce site that has ‘built-in’ search engine optimization for your own listing. For instance, go to shopping.google.com and type in “Batmobile LED Kit”. See the first listing? It’s on eBay and that’s my product! I didn’t have to do anything to get it on Google!

4. eBay is the ONLY site where you can TEST product PRICING with a LARGE audience. That means before you go to market with a “Buy It Now Price’ You can change prices as much as you want until you hit the ‘sweet spot’ where your customers are the most apt to buy from you.

5. eBay is the ONLY MASSIVE site (other than Amazon) that gives you exposure to MILLIONS of INTERNATIONAL buyers.

6. Amazon CAN Shut you down, and permanently ban you from selling. This has happened to other sellers. The only other site with TENS of MILLIONS of visitors monthly is eBay. (The reverse can happen too, if you sell only on eBay and not on Amazon. So, DIVERSIFY and sell actively on both eBay and Amazon!)

7. eBay is the ONLY MASSIVE e-commerce site where you can pay (a ridiculously low $ 39.95) to get the vehicle you’re selling at the TOP of the search results.

8. eBay is the ONLY MASSIVE e-commerce site where you can list an auction item for FREE (beg. 4/19/11) and pay a commission only if it sells.

9. Fickle Sellers peeved at eBay’s Latest Fee Changes are going to leave. That’s GREAT because it means LESS competition for you!

10. eBay is STILL a RIPE SOURCE of goods you can snap up and ‘flip’ on Amazon for HUGE Profits.

11. (sorry, one more). eBay is still one of the CHEAPEST marketing methods to promote your goods to a HUGE audience. Direct mail, TV, radio, Google Adwords can be (or already are) expensive; and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) can be a long, arduous process. I will GLADLY pay eBay’s seller fees and commissions because I know I can’t market my stuff any cheaper.

I live in New York with my beautiful wife and 2 dogs. I was a former corporate marketing guy who left a BIG NAME agency earlier this year to expand my online business, with great success.

I have been an eBay Powerseller since 2005. Also, I’ve been an Amazon Pro Merchant since 2008 and I received Amazon.com’s ‘Top Seller’ Award for Holiday Season 2010! as well.

I am also a content editor for the world’s largest Internet marketing membership site, My-Silent-Team.Net
