With Ebay becoming progressively more expensive, restrictive, and indifferent to it's users, I know a lot of people on other forums have been investigating alternatives, or even setting up sites themselves. Although it's clear that nothing can directly rival Ebay in the near future, some have had success with sites like Ebid, and niche, special interest auction sites run by and for enthusiasts. I must admit that I do have a vested interest in all of this, having recently set up a UK auction site for fruit machines and coin operated slot and general amusement arcade equipment, but it's early days at the moment and is obviously going to take a while to catch on. This despite the fact that Ebay have completely taken against fruit machines on their site, regularly pulling listings and invoking confusing and inconsistent policies relating to the content of listings! So the question is, has anyone tried an alternative, either on or off line, and had any appreciable success? Or has also set one up themselves?
