Online or offline auctions in France

Sorry, I only know of one apart from which is quite rubbish , it's a good one though, have a look at

If you know of any others, list them below please!



They changed the way operated a few years ago, it killed it, I think it may have been due to some regulation or other.

I've only used Ebay - one thing I don't ever understand though on is why people set their starting price so high? It's like they set the price they want for it and then expect people to bid up from that. It doesn't work like that - I thought it was best to start lower and then get people enthused in bidding, drive a bit of competition and the price goes up anyway or is it completely different in France?

I noticed they also do classified ads on which perhaps is what confuses people as they treat it like le bon coin?
