    was considering it because of high fees on ebay. from what i saw on amazon, they charge 99 cents per transaction. `

    I tried, and they won't let me because I live in Ireland, and they are in the UK. I wouldn't mind, but it would have been nice if it said something much earlier on their website. As it was, I waded all through all the forms, and only got told right at the end. What a waste of time.

    it is 99 cents per transaction PLUS 15% of the selling price. Ebay is cheaper.
    That being said, I do sell books on AZ as well as charm squares. But I have an upgraded account and do not pay the 99 cent part (pay $40 a month for the account instead)

    Thanks for the info..i must of missed the part about the 15%.

    i don't sell enough of anything to warrant the $40. lol
    there are other places to sell sewing related items. as well as other selling places for just about anything. it has been discussed here a few months earlier.
    i even sold a few things on my face book page. i have friends who sell scentsy like that.

    thanks for the suggestions!

    I have sold books on both Amazon and half.com . Amazon gets more traffic, so things tend to sell faster, but half.com is easier and more straightforward to deal with. I prefer half.com .

    One problem I ran into on Amazon was customer responses. I had one who gave me a bad rating for somebody else's book (not one I had ever listed); must have confused the two sellers. Another one tried to leave me the highest rating (judging by his comment) but misunderstood the rating system and gave me 1 star instead of 5. I left comments on those ratings, but I didn't sell many items on Amazon so these made a huge dent in my %-rating. I myself will skip over listings where the person has less than a 90% rating, so I just figured I was done with Amazon.

    Have you considered half.com? I have sold several books on there. I also only ever buy all my books from there. They are associated with E-bay but seperate. There are no listing fees and it stays listed until you remove etc. They only make money off of part of the shipping cost.
