Free Auction Alternative to EBay

Updated on March 7, 2008

There has been a dull rumble being heard throughout the Ebay community for a few years now. With the latest surge of EBay fee hikes at the beginning of 2008, some Ebay sellers have had enough. Many Ebay sellers are searching for greener pastures.

And it seems that there is a new guy on the auction block, so to speak. Milbid.com is a new auction site that just started at the beginning of February in 2008. Milbid.com could fit the bill for EBay sellers wanting to go elsewhere.

There are a few things about Milbid.com that make it stand out from other auction websites. Probably the website will attract the most online sellers because of its fees. What are the charges? Well, there are none. There are no fees for either party, buyer or seller. The website hopes to be able to keep the site free.

But that's not the only reason to give Milbid.com a try. One fourth of the profits made on Milbid.com are spent on military members overseas. The money is used to send care packages to military members and to financially help any military families that may need it.

The owner of the Milbid.com website is a military member himself. Adam Mulholland is on active duty in the Air Force. Mulholland runs the auction website all by himself with the help of some military buddies.

So, show support for the troops and make some money at the same time. Sell something on MilBid.com. Or maybe you can find a real treasure to buy.

The auction site isn't real active yet, as it is still very new. But it is very easy to navigate. Google Checkout has already been implemented. There are quite a few active auction categories already. Some of the items listed include antique jewelry, books, clothing, collectibles, and items for the home and garden. Give it a shot. You have nothing to lose, literally, and you may even gain a little something.

      You're both welcome. I've had a bone to pick with EBay for a long time. ;)

      And I'm always for supporting the troops.
