iOffer update: As of today I've sold a grand total of $27.50 in 1 month's time.... But that was before I raised the price from $1.95 to $2.95, and now $3.95. Also I was inactive for 5 days due to restricted sales because of no feedback. I could do that much in 5 hours on ebay.

An interesting thing. I noticed a seller making massive profits. He sells photoshop, windows xp, vista, rosetta stone, roxio, and some other software. Of course they are all ⊗⊗⊗⊗ but he just joined in March 2008 and already has 400 sales with each ⊗⊗⊗⊗ CD bringing in about $30 a piece!!! One of the highest searched words on iOffer is Rosetta Stone. I'm not advocating counterfeit software sales but man, with that much money its temping.... I remember reading that some dude made $2million selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ software on ebay before he got owned by the FBI! Could this happen on ioffer too? The buyers do know they are buying ⊗⊗⊗⊗ copies.

ebay will log you IP anytime you login in to eBay this includes authenticating a third party like netvibes, auctiva, or mr grabber.

Oh dear. Maybe this was why my last account got suspended... as I imported feedback from ebay to Mr grabber from a suspended account!

Dear lord, what a <div> I am. Thinking about it, was about a week after I tried Mr grabber that my eeb account got suspended.

That is incorrect. ebay will not log your IP from mr grabber because no ebay token is generated. mr grabber takes your login info and logs in from their servers, the same way esnipe does.

That was my understanding as well... I hope this is the case!

And I have had 0 success with iOffer :( My hit count is 0 after signing up several months ago. But I still have hope that eventually traffic will start moving in that direction.

After all, they are 2nd in regards to # of listings according to this site: Auction site count, Keep track of the number of listings on auction sites

And I've noticed that sellers with similar inventory to mine have a steady stream of ratings (their equivalent to feedback) coming in, meaning they've been getting sales regularly, but not nearly the same traffic as I've had on eBay. I'm going to test what other types of inventory might sell better on iOffer. I might need to think of a different market to target.

Lets hope more traffic moves to iOffer!

I am making $300 a month on ioffer. Thats only 10% of what I made on ebay. But its rising too. In fact I get sales almost every hour of the day and am having problems delivering it. Alot of folks from Australia buying my stuff at 4am and expect instant delivery of digital items.

I have been watching my competition in one specific area on Ioffer and they not sold a single item for more then a month now. Dont know if its the low traffic count or they are alittle high on pricing but they are not selling.

Default My iOffer.com Review

I've been on iOffer for awhile now so I thought I'd share my thoughts and a review on them. This would help sellers here to determine if iOffer is right for them, since iOffer seems to be the 2nd runner up in auctions next to ebay. Since I've been suspended from ebay, I searched high and low for the best alternative site for ebay. Believe me, I've become an expert in ebay alternative sites.

Background:

I was selling digital items on ebay and making good money (in the thousands per month). Then I get suspended for miscategorization of digital items, after ebay's new digital item policy. After march 31st, 2008, ebay only allows digital items in the classified ad format or you have to make a CD and physically ship it. These 2 choices were not for me so I looked for alternatives. Since ebay basically banned digital items, it made no since for me to make ⊗⊗⊗⊗ accounts like in the Stealth Book here, as I am only going to sell digital stuff and digital stuff is banned now. Which is why I looked for alternative sites.

iOffer.com facts:

The site is buggy. Some buttons don't work, etc. The site is slow. I went on whois.com and found out they only have 2 servers and 25 employees. Questions get answered in 3 days average. Alot of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ everythings, especially purses, DVD box sets, software like XP, Vista, Rosetta Stone, and MS Office, all for like $25 or less. Calculates Final value fee including shipping.
They have a program called C.O.P.S. which is like VERO on ebay. However they don't do anything, they leave it up for the rights owners.

iOffer.com the good:

Has Mr. Grabber, a program which grabs your feedback and even listings from ebay. You can list anything in any category. For example, a shirt in the electronics section. Therefore, you can spam iOffer. They say they check but really don't. No listing fees, and no fees unless you sell. Has tools to submit to google base. Integrated with paypal and google checkout. Has 4.5 million listings and 1 million unique visitors a month. The best next to ebay. Listens to suggestions. iOffer has a thread on their forum where you can list suggestions and sometimes they do it. For example, they made pics up to 6 free.

iOffer.com the bad:

Mr. Grabber only transfers feedback numbers and percentage positive. Doesn't transfer comments etc. Can't get all listings transfered. Alot of non paying buyers. Get stupid buyers offering you less than cost for your items. ⊗⊗⊗⊗ everywhere. Has 4.5 million listings but listings never expire. They stay up forever as long as the seller is still registered or ends listing, whereas ebay's listings always end. This is important in determining listing numbers to determine which site is best. Temporarily suspends you if you sell 4 items without feedback. Slow site. Buggy site. ebay has 13.5 million listings and 16 million unique visitors, thus pwning iOffer. Spends like $300 a month on advertising, whereas ebay spends $100,000 plus a month. iOffer has 60,000 external links to it, whereas ebay has 16 million links to ebay.

My personal experiences/opinon/sales figures:

Best ebay alternative IMO. I have 25 duplicate listings on there but I only get 10% or less of ebay sales numbers. My best month on ebay was $3k whereas my best month on iOffer is $200 (this month June 2008). Keep in mind I sell digital items. However, my sales were dragged down for being suspended for 1 week because I suggested to forum members who got suspended for no feedback, to paypal buyers $1.00 to buy feedback, which is what I did. iOffer read my comment, deleted it, and suspended me. When I asked why, they told me so and made me promise to not do it again, which I promised and I was unsuspended. I've been on iOffer for 2 and 1/2 months and gross sales are around $300. Not good but better than nothing. Not integrated with e-junkie.com, which I use for my automated digital downloads. Now I have to manually send emails. This is only important for digital item sellers. My sales however are increasing, as I've learned how to spam iOffer with my listings etc. But it takes much more effort than ebay to get to the same sales numbers.

I hope this has been informational to you guys. Please add to this if you know additional info. Thanks.
