Default Bonanza is it legit or scam?

guys, is bonanza is a legit site to sell something? and do they charge you for listing your items or they only charge for sold items?
I was researching it online and about 50% people say its a scam. and other 50% say its great.
Does anyone have any experience on that site?

They get 6 million visitors a month. Which is 5% what eBay gets.

Not a scam, though.

Not scam, it's all about membership i think. Before two days I listed an item with 19% fee and got only 70 views, which 6 or 7 are from the advertisment.

I do not know how the advertisment works

yu can find all the information on its site.
i have an account there,it can pull what you have on Ebay and list them on Bonanza,but sales is very slow,this year surprise surprise I have 2 sales?
if you want to print shipping label on its site,you have to pay a fee and deposit some cash into your account to pay the label .
It is free but there are subscriptions if yo want to join

I sold on Bonanza for awhile. The only success I found with it was to purchase one of the top-tier packages to have Google Shopping activated for your listings to pull in traffic from Google. So then you would pay Bonanza's fees, Paypal's fees, and whatever % that you bid on from Google's traffic. If you're savvy, you're better off setting up your own store and working your own Google shopping campaign.

Slow sales. Reps and automated policy enforcement aren't very good - good for you though.

ECrater,BoNANZA,Etsy all rely on Google search but Etsy is willing to pay Google,Etsy is most successful.

I'm giving it a try this past week , annoying that you have to offer paypal as a payment option but when I got my first sale at least paypal didnt say they had to hold onto it for 21 days as I had no feedback .

But Etsy's market is different than Bonanza if I remember correctly.
Bonanza offers all kinds of things like eBay and iOffer basically and Etsy just does craft stuff?

etsy starts out as a site for handmade items,then evolved into handmade and vintage/antiques.
But plenty of sellers sell Alibaba items,some were taken down but some are still there.
Etsy has a large number of brick and mortar antique stores which shun Ebay but some sell on both sites.
There is also Ecrater.

Bonanza doesn't have the visitor volume so sales are very very slow.. I am sure there are people making money there though.

I've heard of only few people who is making good money on Bonanza, but reading the majority of people's report, it's hard to make a sale there.

Tried Bonanza for a few months and just gave up after only 2 sales there during that time.

Waste of time.
