Both eBay and amazon are two of the most well-known site for shopping online if not the most well-known two out of them all. One of the great things about these two sites is that you can find almost anything on these sites, unlike with other site if you want clothes you go to one site and then another for electronics but with these two, Amazon and eBay you can find almost everything right there. Now the only difference is eBay is an auction site and if you want to play the bidding games and you have the time then you can come out with some really good deals. One of the most common mistake many people think is eBay only sells used stuff, which is untrue because that also have many new items as well. As well as with amazon you can also find both new and used items on the site.
Now I used to think that eBay was the site to go to if you wanted to get a used item at the best price and amazon was the place if you wanted the new stuff at the best price. But what I notice when I was comparing some items I wanted to buy was that sometime amazon actually have certain used items much cheaper than eBay and sometime eBay actually has new items cheaper than amazon. So what I have come to in conclusion is that you really have to do a comparison check on the both sites before buying to see which site really does offer this best prices availed. The only thing with amazon is if you buy directly from them rather than a seller you are sure of the credibility or the authenticity of the item as you are buying direct from amazon itself.
