Nowadays, e-commerce vendors have a wide range of options for online stores where they may offer their goods. Shopify, Walmart, and Etsy all give vendors the chance to reach customers with their goods.However, Amazon and eBay have existed longer than the rest of the sites. You might want to think about selling on one or the other as they are the two most established online marketplaces (as well as the top two performing e-commerce sites, respectively).But how can you tell which is going to work best for you.There are strong justifications for both, therefore we're comparing the two markets to decide which one is, all things considered, the greatest choice for your kind of business.
Both eBay and Amazon are well-known companies that have existed since the middle of the 1990s. In July 1994, Amazon made its debut under the name Cadabra (it later changed its trade name to Amazon in 1995), and eBay quickly followed in September 1995.Amazon, however, often outperforms its rivals in terms of consumer trust. In fact, Amazon is so committed to earning and upholding its customers' trust that it is reflected in the organization's vision, purpose, and values.And it seems like the concentration is paying off. According to a recent Jungle Scout poll, 73% of American consumers think Amazon is a good company for purchasers.

You only have one fulfillment option when selling on eBay: packing and shipping your own orders (or hire a third-party fulfillment center to help you).Contrarily, Amazon gives you the choice of fulfilling orders on your own (Fulfillment by Merchant; FBM) and having Amazon do it for you (Fulfillment by Amazon; FBA).And what truly distinguishes Amazon is that second choice—Amazon FBA.Amazon promises to take care of a sizable chunk of the labor off your hands, but eBay demands that sellers manage every area of their business themselves.Amazon gives you time to focus on other aspects of your business by storing, selecting, packing, and delivering your items for you (and don't forget that they also manage returns and refunds!).
It's time to make a choice now that you are aware of the distinctions between the two platforms and, hopefully, have a better grasp of how each may help your business. eBay or Amazon? , or both! However, there has never been a better moment to start your company online, regardless of whether you decide to sell on eBay or Amazon.If you're interested in finding out more about how Jungle Scout may assist you with beginning your selling journey, have a look at our membership plans (all of which include access to training materials for Jungle Scout members only in the Academy)
