No sure of ebay.

I register for the Gmarket but endup I give up because posting a picture/advertisement is very troublesome, have to key in many details, not like previous yahoo auction which is very straight forward.

Hi,

E bay merchants a lot now more than customer range so i give up after trying for a month. Facebook advertising not bad not bit expensive to me.
G market i am trying out this week but they are charging at 12% ontop of yr selling price per item and they provide free training of loading items to their website also. have just loaded up 100plus items to their web page last weekend....no harm trying it

Gmarket is competitive but it charges high commission. If they could lower it, I believe more people will shop at gmarket. Anyway, among my friends, less than 1% knows Gmarket's existence. But still good online exposure.

I'll tried selling ladies clothes on Gmarket b4 but there is too many competition fm their own korean supplier, selling at really low price, i believe they give privileges to their own korean seller otherwise how can they manage to sell a tee at $5 and still pay for Gmarket 12% commission?

I tried both.

Found eBay at first easy to manage but later on find so trouble some with 7 days posting, had to re-list again and very slow. One a while got people buy, so slow. And some of them not too shy to send emails, ask me give cheaper price!

Gmarket at first very slow, but one you get on to it, its a good place to sell. Even those so many competitors. One thing I dnt like is the setltement its not 2 weeks, now like a month!

And no one has even 1 min to give you feedback! Typically I have to go and beg them to give me feedback. _

Selling 2nd hand cloth? I had a friend selling 2nd hand cloth for Korean, they have very special place to sell, so I go and ask her experience. I am going to try selling my off season cloth, BN, if you are willing to let it go at few bucks then done lah.

I selling my apparel in Gmarket,honestly speaking you cannnot make money in Gmarket.I only getting rid of stock that cannot sell in my shop.
Buyers in Gmarket wants very cheap stuff, gmarket tax 12% even register post we do not earn a single cent they also want to tax.
Good month you can earn 2 to 3 hundreds and bad month hardly can get hundred over dollars.

Gmarket will pay seller bit by bit for example your sale in January is $700 after the deduction of 12%.The $700 they will divide into 4 payment every thursday they will bank small amount into your account.They do not notify you this amount of payment is for which transaction and also quite difficult to check, we dare not call and ask them because Koreans are quite short temper.

Gmarket also selling alot of things on their platform from pampers to apparel and they sell dirt cheap.Those Korean power sellers are actually gmarket themselves, recently they shifted their office to valley point and their office is like a store house so many stuffs,I saw many packets ready to sent out
Ebay is too messy not like Gmarket they let you list for one year before one year is up your stulff already sold out.

Is the 12% a tax or commission?

Surely, they have to earn more $, because Yahoo wont give them a free-ride.

I'm not so sure about such platform. Firstly, this is a shared online market. Many people can enter.

1) Competition is damn high.

2) How many % will your items be shown and visit?

3) Whats the traffic into the website?

Personally, I think it is even tougher to have a blogshop or e-commerce website of urs.

Regards,
Takeshi
