Brighton, VIC (your-story) August 09, 2011 – eBay Australia have identified plans to double fees on auction listings on its site, making it increasingly difficult for non-professional sellers to justify using the site.
Fees for eBay ( http://www.ziilch.com.au ) sales will jump from 5.25% to 7.9% for final sales under the new changes, taking a large cut of your potential profits.
eBay’s early uses as a site for anyone and everyone to go on and sell their second hand items are history, with the rise of eBay stores and fixed price sales becoming a now common occurrence.
However, whilst eBay is forgetting its roots, Australian site Ziilch ( http://www.ziilch.com.au ) is filling the void. Ziilch is an online trader with a conscience, promoting the re-use and recycle of everyday items that no longer get any use.
The best part is that on Ziilch, listing an item costs absolutely nothing.
You are charged nothing to list an item, nothing to want an item and nothing to take an item, allowing you to shop with confidence knowing that you won’t have to spend a cent. Ziilch’s online range is ever growing, catering for a wide range of categories that are common on the popular shopping sites.
From clothes to furniture, automotive products to accessories for the office, Ziilch has what you need. The very nature of Ziilch taps into the kindness of listers and buyers, eliminating the cut throat auction persona sites like eBay have come to possess.
Forget about increasing fees and high-cost fix-priced items – Ziilch is providing Australian’s with a way to find quality second hand products and not have to pay anything for them.
The environmental benefits of Ziilch are also a highlight. Listing on the site means no more dumping unwanted items in landfill, waiting for hard rubbish collection days or living in a state of clutter and mess – just a quick and effective way to get rid of your goods online for absolutely nothing.
The buying side of the site is another plus. Many of the listed items are available for pickup, or, if that perfect piece is just a little bit too far away, postage can be organised for a fee.
Anyone can join up and use Ziilch – be it businesses, charities, not for profit organisations or social enterprises – providing everyone with a place to list their goods.
