Craigslist.org and eBay.com are some websites for individuals looking to sell items. Etsy is useful for small companies selling crafts, and Amazon.com is an online retailer for medium and large companies.
Craigslist is a resource for people looking for a free alternative to newspapers' classified sections, and it's popular for selling used electronics and other household items. The design of Craigslist lends itself to local sales, so people often use it for selling cars and other large and expensive items as of 2015.
EBay is the most popular online auction website as of 2015. Unlike Craigslist, eBay allows sellers to target a national or international audience. Because sellers typically ship items to customers, they need to know how to package and ship their items. The notoriety of eBay makes it a great choice for people selling niche items, and both small and large businesses utilize it.
Etsy targets people looking for handmade items, so it's a good option for people looking to sell arts and crafts. While it's much smaller than other websites, it also provides a well-targeted audience for artists. For medium and large companies, Amazon.com is a good choice due to its large audience. Amazon.com's sophisticated searching capabilities let customers find uncommon items, making it a good resource for companies selling niche items.
