    Technically, I don't know but you can see the differences in the offers and services.

  • What kind of differences are you looking for? How things are from a buyer's perspective - like what kind of items are listed, quality of customer service, etc. - or how it is for a seller (policy, product page requirements, etc.)?

    I'm no expert, but here's a general overview of differences:

    Amazon - best for new, manufactured goods. Some popular categories on Amazon are apparel, electronics, tech gadgets, home appliances, books...the list goes on. Amazon has very strict policy regulations to ensure all products sold by third party sellers are authentic and in excellent condition. The process of listing products varies greatly from how it works on eBay.

    eBay - great for collectibles and vintage finds. I see lots of collectors of here who auction off (or sell) baseball cards, signed memorabilia, and other collectors items. EBay operates as both an auction and for-sale marketplace.

    Etsy - goods here must be vintage, handmade or craft supplies. Communication between buyer and seller is facilitated on Etsy, leading to a greater likelihood of buyers leaving feedback. Great for sellers who often sell products at craft fairs or pop-up shops, as Etsy just released its very own credit card reader that connects to a seller's online store. Etsy also has its own app store to enable sellers to customize their storefront or help them better connect with their audience.

    That's just a very broad overview. There are differences in selling/transaction fees, which is information each marketplace provides before a seller signs up.

    If you share what products you sell/plan on selling, I'm sure some Warriors could chime in with suggestions on where to sell out of these three options.
