I wanna sell some secondhand goods by accepting bitcoin, but I don't know which site is best I should choose. Please give me some suggestion.

I need to post some picture
I wanna paste some introduction
Escrow service
Wish it let the buyers pay bitcoin easily
collect the BTC fund\shipping address for me, and inform me by email if someone has paid
wish it upport Simple Chinese, but English only is also fine

You must have tried the site yourself, I mean you have tried to done business on that site, not only register or viewed the site once a while.


If you see any of my suggestions useful, please donate me. http://btc.to/ec

It doesn't meet all your requirements, but I've used BiddingPond for a dozen or so successful transactions (most of them me selling something). It was much more popular when it first came out, but since then has had times of not having much support or usage. I get the impression that it's just something that one person maintains in his spare time, but it recently had a bit of an update and I can log into my account again at least, which seems promising. If the owner keeps on working on it it could grow quite a bit again.

It's very much like eBay used to be when it started, where it just connects you with the email address of the other party and you're expected to arrange for payment/escrow/shipping yourselves. They claim to be working on an escrow service "soon", however. You can definitely list items with pictures and descriptions, and it supports English. I'm not aware of how good its international support is, and it may not have much of an audience that reads Chinese, but I don't know.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Bidding pond had absolutely no customer support last time I checked, shoddy documentation, and was on a really slow connection.
I pulled my items down after waiting 3 weeks for answers to simple, basic questions about how transactions would be handled. (Which I never got.)

Definitely room for competition.

We would like you to support your statements.  Documentation not being there, yes you are correct.  Not receiving an answer?  That doesn't happen.  We answer all questions no matter what it may be including non biddingpond Bitcoin related questions.  The only exception to the previous sentence, in which we would not reply, is if you are cursing, being rude, harassing, or any other inappropriate behavior that a reasonable person would find offending.

BiddingPond is down to a team of 2.  One answers most of the support questions and resolves issues(if any) and the other does the programming. The programmer until recently was working on other projects and has continued part time development on  BiddingPond (20 hours/week). We have taken a large usage hit but have seen numbers increase dramatically again(unique views) in the recent weeks.  The mythical escrow service is on its way.  International support is available if someone would like to volunteer to do the translations.  We plan on offering spanish and german in the near future.

Pictures are available as well as introduction.  A simple escrow system is slated to be completed by the end of the month.  Payment of bitcoins is achieved by placing a payment address in the listing.  We originally had auto notifications of payment as well as collect and foward funds on your behalf but, have removed that until we can write better documentation as it was causing confusion among new users. 

Additionally, we have free premium listings available until the end of the month.

Look at your own "help forum" for verification. Unless you've taken my posts down it will be obvious, because after waiting 3 weeks I said "OK, I gave you a more than reasonable timeframe to respond, now I'm taking my business elsewhere."

My questions couldn't have been more polite and what I was asking you was for basic information that should have already been on the site...like what happens after an auction is finished.

A good BTC auction site would really help us out, so I'm hoping someone steps up. If that's you guys, great. You just had a long way to go last time I checked.

http://en.bitmit.net/ is actively developed and the developer is very responsive.

http://www.bitcoinclassifieds.net also has a decent interface and volume weighted average prices (if you peg your prices to USD or EUR, though pure BTC is certainly possible).
