uBid claims that they do not have any selling fees. This may just be the seller verification fee that they are referring too; but if there really are no listing fees at all, this is a major benefit.
They have over a half a million visitors a week and over five million monthly page views. These are great numbers for those looking to list their personal items.
Their marketing team offers many plenty of ways to customize your listing to your desire.
They have over six million registered users and a 15 year brand and market equity.
Buyers can put their trust in uBid listings and sellers; each seller is required to go through a “rigorous” 12 point screening process. There are over seven thousand sellers, resellers, name brand manufacturers and distributors.
To receive complete information and fine print about becoming a seller, you have to register first and go through their screening process. This can be a hassle and shows a slight lack in transparency. They also do not display pricing and costs on listing options.
They do not accept PayPal.
They have a transaction fee for buyers, while most of their competitors do not.
