    I am always amazed as to how many people find Yahoo answers but seem to forget how to make a simple Google search. Just put amazon into your search box and go to the Amazon web site. They sell alll sorts of stuff, and also let you and me sell our stuff on there as well. Different to Ebay as there are no auction type sales on Amazon. On Amazon you find what you have to sell already on sale on their web site, and click on the options to "sell similar item". This means that you don't have to create your own picture or description of the item, as it has already been created. You can sell used goods, eg a used book, or a new item.

    Duh ! Why don't you just log onto the site and see ? It's a huge company that sells all kinds of products thru their site everything from DVDs to Lawnmowers. They are a highly rated company and I buy from them regularly. Never ever had a problem with them in over ten years.
