Are you thinking about selling books (and other stuff) on Amazon Marketplace? That's a great plan. Sure, auction sites work too. But you'll find it easier and potentially more lucrative to also sell on, especially if you're a beginner. Read about amazon listing services to discover 5 reasons why you should give it a try.

1) It's easy
It's incredibly easy to sell on Amazon Marketplace. You only have to write good descriptions and clever yet keyword optimized titles. Amazon already advertises what you have to sell -- and places your listing alongside its own.

2) No upfront charges
There are no upfront charges either. Most auction sites charge listing fees, at least after a certain price point, and you have to pay those whether or not you sell your item. eBay does have the second chance option, but if you don't sell your item the second or third time around, you still have to pay.

3) Less hassle with feedback
First of all, hardly anyone leaves feedback on Amazon. That's not necessarily a good thing -- you'll have to keep selling stuff and do a great job and maybe even ask for feedback to build up your ratings.

But on the plus side, Amazon buyers are generally very appreciative of your service, provided you're selling them high-quality items at a good price, and ship them in a timely manner. So generally, your feedback will be great especially if you make an effort to make your buyers happy.

4) You make more money
That's right. For the vast majority of items, especially books and other media mail type items, you will make more money on Amazon Marketplace. Why is that, you may wonder? It's because most auction buyers are constantly looking for a bargain and try to pay as little as possible. However, they're usually also not particularly looking for books, so it takes longer to sell books.

On Amazon Marketplace, though, you'll be able to sell your item for whatever is the most competitive rate -- and then just leave your item listed until it sells.

Some of them sell faster than others, depending on demand. There are ways to predict which ones will sell faster, but often you actually make more on items that are hard to find even though they might take longer to actually sell.

5) It works
If you have books, CDs, DVDs, and games that are in demand, and there are easy ways to find out if they are, you'll be likely to sell them fairly quickly and for a good price -- and comparatively little effort.
