Specialty and International Sites
eBay supports a number of special eBay sites: eBay Stores, eBay Real Estate (US only), eBay Motors (US only), and Half.com.
An eBay Store is an online selling platform tied to eBay. A seller can build their own eBay Store, create custom categories to merchandise their Store, cross-sell and up-sell all of their items, use their own logo and HTML, and provide information about themselves, their Store and their policies.
Due to the wide variety of laws governing the sale of real estate, eBay Real Estate auction-style advertisements of real property do not involve legally binding offers to buy and sell. Instead, eBay Real Estate's auctions are simply a way for sellers to advertise their real estate and meet potential buyers. eBay Real Estate also offers sellers the option of advertising their property in an Ad format rather than an auction format. The real estate advertisement format was created for people selling real estate who want to get in contact with as many interested buyers as possible. As with Real Estate auctions, when the seller specifies a start price, it only serves as an asking price. No bidding takes place. With the Ad format, interested buyers fill out a contact form and their information is sent to the seller. Advertisement format listings do not result in feedback, because the format aims to generate multiple leads rather than a single high bidder.
The US eBay Motors site is a special automotive site run by eBay. It's designed to make selling and buying cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, motorcycles, boats, vehicle parts, and related items easy.
The Half.com site enables you to sell new and used Books, CDs, Movies, Games, and Game Systems. The items you list for sale will be seen by millions of potential buyers. You can list Half.com items for longer durations than eBay auction and fixed-price listings. Half.com takes a small commission when your item sells (you do not pay fees for unsold items).
