Amazon is probably the best out of what you listed, but from the last I heard they're not very seller friendly... Or so it seemed.

Amazon gets lots of traffic but their fees are highhhh! I listed 5 products on Amazon 1 day and within 2 hours they were all sold, but I didnt know of their crazy fees. Their seller fees is about $25 on the hundred. So i promptly refunded the buyers through Amazon

HI- I have seller accounts on Overstock.com, Ioffer.com, and Amazon.com-
Amazon is good is you sell books or other non threatening items.
Traffic not as high as ebay.
They do not push the feedback issue, as a matter of fact less than 10 % leave feedback of any kind.
Ioffer- this is where you put a price and they send you offers-- no fee till it sells
Overstock.com, pretty good if you have bulk items/lots, they also integrate with ccnow.
As for Amazon fees- maybe there a sliding scale, based on the category?
I have sold radar detectors, stationery, and wrist watches, normally on a $50 sale, they take $3-$4- and NO LISTING fees.. ( Ive been on amazon for 3 years now)

Default Amazon Fees

I can vouch for Amazon being a fee hog. I just recently started selling on there (less than one month). My item ranges from $275 - $325 and I pay approx. $45 to Amazon for each one sold! I also have to eat some of the shipping fee because the credit they give is 3.99 but priority shipping (flat rate box) is approx. $8.50. They want you to ship super fast so I have to use priority service!

I like it better than EBay actually. At least I know they won't f*#@ with my money like CrookedBay!
