    Ok so we all know what we hate about Ebay....

    Get charged for listing
    Get charged for selling
    Get charged for receiving money

    Its like they charge us every possible way to make us broke

    Well it seems as though someone has heard our outrage and started their own Ebay Alternative.

    No Listing Fees
    No Selling Fees

    Its dedicated to Gamers, and I think its ingenious! Some of the features I am digging so far.....

    15 Day Auctions
    Auto Relist if not sold
    Accept Trades for listed items
    $5 Stores (1000 items)


    I will most likely be listing up a crapload of gaming magazines over this week, I think its a site that every gamer should support.

    Except eBay has ten thousand times as many users.

    And you don't expect them to charge for anything? eBay is a business. Businesses need to make money. The required fees for using eBay are quite small, so I'm not quite sure why you're whining about it.

    This one is also a good option, I've sell something and got a bunch of things, including a GameCube and some cheap games.

    i sold about $500 worth of stuff about a month ago and got charged a whole $12 from ebay and about $7 from paypal.

    Consider it a listing fee.

    eBay has minor charges, they're not much.

    If you don't want to be charged, go sell it on the street ¬.¬

    the incredible high prices you can fetch with your items on ebay make the high fees up.

    Good find. I'll be keeping tabs on that site - hopefully it'll grow bigger, but not too much, because then it would be just like ebay, with ridiculous prices on popular but not-so-common gaming gear.

    There are sooo many ebay spin offs.... all with small member bases making them a false economy. The amount you get from save from listing fees is lost with potential revenue.
    If your a buyer on the other hand, these smaller places are great, less competition for each item.
