Is there a thread or can anyone tell me the advantages of selling on Amazon VS Ebay?

Thanks
Items generally have higher prices on Amazon.
Fees are different in each category, so you can check which nets you more.
Amazon has the option of FBA.

aha

so for best results would it make sense to set up an account for each, and then choose based on the item?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Something else you may need to consider (depending on what you're selling) is that sometimes items may be restricted on Amazon, but allowed on Ebay. I don't really of the reverse being true, but I suppose it is possible.

Interesting.

Is one or the other less work regarding creating the listings?

On Amazon you'll be using existing listings, on Ebay you'll be creating a new one - so Ebay is more work. However, you will be creating based on existing listings, so it is not that much more difficult.

Miles selling question:

If I have various SPG, MR, and URP accounts and I want to cash them all in, what transfer partner do they all have in common that I can dump all the points into and get the best value?

You get the best values in each of the plans you mentioned, because the buyer has the flexibility to put them in the partner they want.  So leave them as is. (Unless you have really small, worthless amounts in each)

BA, SQ and VS. SQ probably being the best value.

Or if he doesn't want to give access, etc.

I used a wrong card for a purchase and I want the merchant to cancel the charge from the card and charge it to a different card,
Would this cost any additional fees for the merchant?
