Pros

One of the biggest benefits of selling through this auction website is the ease involved in calculating the expense of your selling fees. There are no variable fees to figure out based on your selling categories or percentages to calculate. You will pay less to sell on this site than you will with many others, because you only pay a flat fee of $8.00 per month, for up to 8,000 listings. How could you go wrong with such a minimal risk in fees? There are absolutely no extra fees, unless you do a feature auction or add a storefront, or more then 4 photos, which costs a whopping .25 per extra picture over four. Many auction sites charge extra after the first picture!

Cons

There is no third party resolution center so buyers and sellers have to resolve their own conflicts. It is still a relatively small auction site, with a customer base of only about 100,000 buyers and sellers, but it is growing quickly.

Fees

OnlineAuctions.com charges a flat fee of $8.00 per month to list all your items. If an item does not sell the first time,  you can relist it for no additional charge. You you are never required to pay fees to list individual items. You pay one low fee of $8/mo or $96/yr for your membership, and that covers all your listings.

Selling Options

Unlike most auction sites,  you are free to build ongoing relationships and connect with buyers and sellers however you desire. They even encourage their customers to link their auctions to their own web site. They also allow emailing to promote your products, and even recommend contacting previous customers to maintain ongoing business relationships.

Selling Tools

Basic sellers can add an option called “My OLA House,” for $10.00 per month, which allows you, as a member, to have your own personalized store where buyers that are interested in your items can see all of them in one place. You can customize the appearance and layout of your store. Founding Members of the site get a “My OLA House” for free.
