ricardo.ch is a serious contender to eBay in German speaking (D-A-CH) markets. Here's a quick run down of all the advantages ricardo.ch offers that eBay doesn't.
- Low listing fees + 4% success fee (0.30 CHF for product value below CHF 100)
- No scheduling fee
- Accepts www.moneybookers.com, a seller friendly online payment service.
- Ricardo Assistant is a better listing software than eBay Turbo Lister
- Smaller brand compared to eBay, so that means smaller buyer-base
- 3-4 million buyers - primarily Swiss. Relatively low penetration in Germany and Austria.
