I love ebay. You can always check a person's rating to see if they're experienced and what people say about them. People are big on ratings also. Some sellers will even post that they require a rating before item is mailed.

I've only had 1 bad experience, and that wasn't the seller. The item was messed up, but it was a known issue with the product. So I can't blame the seller.

Research your product, research your seller, all should go well. Items are usually received quickly. About 1-1 1/2 weeks after closing sales.

I love Ebay.
Though I find it addicting at time and spend too much money on stuff.

I had one bad experience as a buyer, but filed a claim with PayPal and got my money back in 1 day.

Almost everything I buy does get searched for on ebay. I find it just useful to see what is out there. I sell and buy and all but 1 incident have been excellent.

Yeah, should mention that. read EVERYTHING. People will scam you by putting little print somewhere saying things like "you're only buying the box." I bought one of my PS3's online and there was a guy doing that. He claimed to be selling a brand new PS3 then in small print it said "box." So in the end someone paid like $200 for a PS3 box.

I've had pretty good luck with Ebay. Things seem to get shipped faster than if you buy them anywhere else. Things seem to also be lower in price.

I have never bought anything off E-bay. I looked at a few cars, but since I have never bidded before there was a disclaimer saying my bid would be ignored.

I had to call. but since the bidding went higher than I would of went anyhow it didn't matter.
