Spring Clean and Sell Unwanted items for Cash at


New York, March 2009. As the clocks go forward and spring officially arrives, established eBay Alternative is helping spring cleaners turn unwanted items gathering dust in lofts, basements, closets and garages into quick and easy cash this month by offering low or zero sales fees right across its site.

With unlimited free listings, over 9,000 product categories and an international site with hundreds of thousands of potential buyers in 18 territories across the US and Canada, UK, Africa, Asia and Australasia, eBid makes it easy for people to de-clutter and get their home into shape for the new season.

According to internet monitoring firm Hitwise, towards the end of 08, searches for the term second hand goods increased by 22% supporting the old adage that that one man’s trash is another’s treasure. Interactive Media in Retail Group which represents online retailers, says recent research shows that online searches for discounts have soared by over 100per cent, a clear indication of how consumers are becoming more price sensitive.

Since launching in the US in September 2008, eBid has doubled in size and today is second only to eBay in person to person trading. Mark Wilkinson, co-founder states that the site was established over ten years ago with the sole purpose of offering sellers the chance to make money and supplement their income while offering buyers the best bargains on the net.

To thank sellers for their commitment to making the site the most popular shopping destination on the web, eBid is offering them the chance to win $3,000 for the three millionth individual listing on its site. With listings currently running at close to 2.5 million, the race is on to take home the cash. The three millionth listing applies to single items only and, with real time listing figures updated regularly on its site, sellers can countdown to the jackpot.
