This is not the round of acceptance, so may you/opponent start first? Please do!!! Please cite your evidence, and try to avoid using -.coms or any of your websites. This is not a real debate topic. So don't do your last one!!! (just put something random)

I thank my opponent for creating this debate!

Before getting into my constructive argument, I would like to offer a few key points of clarification.

= Framework =
1. As the instigator of this debate, my opponent has the burden of proof. Even despite the inverse of the wording of the resolution. Effectively, my opponent must prove that E-Bay is Better, Cheaper, and More efficient than Amazon.

2. A standard of argumentation must be upheld. My opponent gives himself three burdens to prove before a vote can be given to Con. To such an extend a vote for the con cannot even be considered until my opponent provides a standard to weigh these terms. Cheaper is the only exception, as the standard of cheap is inherently understood.

= Arguments =
1. Better-
As my opponent has yet to institute a standard by which we weigh the term "Better" I cannot build my argument here yet. So then I'll just go ahead and advocate a Pro vote here and plug in my warrant later.

2. Cheaper-
Again, my opponent has the burden to prove that Ebay is cheaper in an absolute sense of the word. Meaning that if I can find even one object that is cheaper on Amazon than it is on ebay, I win.
To that extend I offer you the Kindle Fire. Amazon's best selling item
Amazon- $199[1]
Ebay- $315.97 [2]

3. Efficient-
Again there's no standard, so I can't readily provide a counter-argument as of yet.

= Conclusion =
As of now, there is no vote other than the Pro. My opponent has made no attempt to even establish any reason to vote for him.

= Sources =

Sorry, but I didn't have time to post my second argument, but thanks for your fast reply.

Hi is am on the Con side of this resolution: Amazon.com is better, cheaper, and more efficient than Ebay.com.

Contention 1- Ebay is better than Amazon is because it can help costumers sell stuff online.
As everyone know Ebay and Amazon can sell stuff online, but eBay's is fees for selling are cheaper.

Rebutts
1. Amazon is not always cheaper than ebay as the stop wath below.
