I found Ebay pretty cheap and easy shopping. I have purchased many items including clothes, kitchen items and beauty products. Transportation is fast and quality is good.

Too limited for potential sellers. I had an abundance of Nikes I bought at varous swap meets and flea market events. Ebay tells me after my tenth listing that I am not able to list more than that due to being a new seller. It was very irritating for me because I want to make money. Too many restrictions for sellers.

UPDATE: I've used eBay a fair amount the last couple years, and I'm no longer worried about unknown, random sellers. The real problem is PayPal. You never know when it's going to reject a completely valid card for no apparent reason. It's terribly buggy, especially for international transactions. I bought something from France once and never did get PayPal to work properly. Had to wire the money directly to the vendor's bank account. If eBay ever developed their own reliable credit card payment system and sent PayPal packing, it would vastly improve the eBay experience.



(2008): I understand the appeal, but I'm not so big on trusting random sellers.

Ebay could be a hell of an experience for you, as well as the hell itself. All that you need to do to not fall in the latest category - research and use common sense.

I love to buy jewelry and books on Ebay. I bought jewelry from China on 2 different occasions, although I told myself some time ago that I will never deal with companies outside US. Well, I happen to have a great outcome in both instances, and I know exactly why. When buying on Ebay first, look at the ratings the seller has, reviews, especially the negative ones, check on responses to negative reviews from the seller (you would be surprised at what you can find out by reading their answers), return policies, shipping time and price etc.

Always pay thru PayPal (open an account if you don't have one, it only takes a minute), and add an extra level of security to your payments, and a few more years to your life).

All overall, when shopping online from such a big marketplace like Ebay, common sense and attention to detail are a must.

Happy shopping, all!

Well, I think this is the first time since 1999 that i am writing a rating here for Ebay. Currently they have charged me over $200 in listing fees on FREE LISTINGS Days. I have listed these same items on their fee listings for months...and now this glitch. Called, they could not find a reason why i have charged.

First, they claim there was not free listing on June 19, 2012, then asked me to prove it. I did, and they said because of my catergory, i asked them to check again. confirmed that was not the case. Then they said will credit me but went off for 15 or mins and said give them 2 days for their billing analysis to check and will email me then. If i like, i can call back...this is beyond ridiculous. My monthly bill the month before this was only $18. I might have to go to small claim court just for them to remove this...truly a sad site for once a great place .

How to start on ebay aye? Well i often use ebay because it has very good deals and is very very very cheap! Its great for people who like to spend little and get more! (Like me) I like how fast some deliveries are aswell because its nice to order things and get it the next day right? You can also find products that you are looking for quickly and its is very easy to use!

The bad points of ebay are that some of the dealers/sellers on there can mislead you into buying their product(s) when it is in a very bad condition or smaller than the picture! Also some delivery costs are very atrocious, i mean why pay more for the delivery than the product?!

I always use ebay now for most of my purchases. It's great to get such a great deal on some of the really expensive items you would find at a store. You can find items from new to pre owned but so far from all my purchases, the items were never damaged. The sellers there make sure that the item is in top condition before selling to us buyers. If there was an issue, it would be mentioned, no seller should mislead a buyer. I like how they have a feed back system so that you can debate on whether to buy from a particular seller depending on how much positive or negative feed back they have. You can buy all sorts of items, and you don't even have to leave the comforts of your home.

Now for sellers, you can sell almost anything in your home and you can make some extra cash there. If you find a shirt you don't wear anymore or some items you don't want anymore, you can simply turn it into cash on ebay! Build up your reputation and more people will buy from you.

I live in an area where garage sales are not feasible. I love using eBay to get rid of my "treasures." I have been an eBay user for almost 9 years and am very happy with them. The only thing I don't like is that you can not give negative (or even neutral) feedback for a bad buyer. I have run across people who were absolutely horrid to deal with, but had no way to pass that information on to other users.

Overall, eBay is the best online auction for me.

michaels_bodykits_and_more eBay account was suspended indefinitely due to low buyer satisfaction. The feedback score for this account is 99% positive. That means only 1% of buyers were not satisfied. It is unbelievable that eBay is suspending accounts that have such good feedback. eBay ruins the lives of seller's who depend on the eBay income...seller's who are disabled and unable to go out in the world and pick up a job like normal. It makes me sick how they can do this and be able to sleep at night.

Everyone that is disappointed should check out Yardsellr. They are the new Ebay. They are Yardsellr and you can find them on Facebook. They also just started style.ly a great new hip site for womens new and slightly used clothing and accessories. They're the best site around to sell online, no fees for sellers, and the staff is the best!!

the rating should not be terrible it should be down right dispicable. If you are a seller do not use ebay they charge fee for every thing and now even the shipping charge as well! the charge will hit the buyers as well soon because the sellers will have to increase there price and more are going to "buy it" now prices. example: the going price for silver b/w $38-$41 an ounce i just sold 10 oz for 390.00 with in the range so i thought. ebay charge my shipping and my sale $35 and paypal theres another winner charged $11 something. at the end my $39 an ounce profit turned into $34 dollars well below market value lost close to $50 total. both the seller and i lose because he paid 39 and the porfit for me was a loss! I highly recommend not using ebay anymore. i have been with them for almost three years and this is my last transaction with ebay and paypal!!!!

Both eBay users who wish to expand their sells beyond eBay and those vendors who already have an online business may benefit from transferring to ProStores for their eCommerce needs. ProStores offers many great features for website design and marketing. However, as with any eCommerce company, there are both advantages and disadvantages when it comes to using ProStores.

When setting up an online business, often times one might first shop for a hosting company, then a design program, and next a shopping cart software. However, ProStores simplifies things by offering all of these items in one package. They host your domain name, offer a design program or the option for their design team to work for you, and they provide a shopping cart program that is integrated with most major merchant accounts and the ability to manage your stores inventory and sales. In addition, ProStores has tools that will help you to promote your business and increase profit. They help you to optimize your store for search engines, advertise on eCommerce sites, list to eBay directly, drive repeat business with features like email advertising, and increase sales with promotions and merchandising.

Let me begin by telling you this, I couldn't find a listing for ProStores, therefore I am posting my review of them here, since ProStores is an eBay company. Ok I personally completely recommend ProStores to any new and interested beginner who plans to start his/her own ecommerce business on the internet. In this post, I will tell you about the different options you have got for choosing the best plan in prostores that will suit you best.

With more than 150 templates that will allow you to build a website or a web store of your own, prostores offers 4 ecommerce solution plans on its website. It is classified based on the quality of the services you will be getting and also based on the fees. So, here they are. Check them out:


ProStores Express – This is the solution offered for beginners. This is meant to be for beginners who wish to sell a limited number of products on their ecommerce store. You can create simple webpages with simple products and the whole set-up process takes less than 20-30 minutes. This is a wonderful option to choose if you are planning to switch from one niche to another (which I do a lot). If you don't really want to make each one really big, then this would be the option for you.

ProStores Business – This works out best for small businesses and is also the bestseller among all 4 options. It offers everything you would really want on a simple platform with more than 10 GB storage capacity, more than 50 unique email boxes, 24/7 tech support and QuickBooks integration.
Prostores enterprise – This is aimed at medium sized and large sized enterprises. Basically they offer all the features Business and more additional features such as drop shipping, affiliate marketing programs and certain other benefits.

ProStores Advanced – This is aimed at small sized and medium sized businesses who aim to begin their own web stores or are looking for e-commerce solutions. You get to control everything starting from the inventory that you are planning to sell (and you can modify information about them in order to keep track of what is happening) to advanced merchandising, promotional tools such as sales discounts and other similar options.

This is the ProStores review that I have written based on my own experience. If you are looking for a good ecommerce solution, then it is definitely a place that you would want to check out.

I don't like ebay, but Doba is one of the very few companies that provides the service of dropshipping with an array of suppliers to sell on eBay. Their directory consists of products from a large variety of niches and then integrates them into a single dropshipping buying portal. There is no need to contact and negotiate with a supplier. No reseller license is required. If you choose to use the datafeeds, they are all incorporated into the Doba datafeed. If you choose order products from multiple vendors, it can still be done with a single order. Doba simplifies the entire dropshipping and product sourcing process into a single user interface. Doba provides extensive training on using their system as well as effectively sourcing and selling products on the internet (both for eCommerce stores and auction websites, like eBay). You are able to trial Doba for free for 7-days by clicking on this link

Ebay has become the bottom feeder of all online auction services.
Customer service is rude, and really have no ability to even help the simplest of problems. They are extremely anti-seller, and have come up with an extremely unfair rating system called dsr's.
Ebay allows buyers to leave 1 and 2's out of 5 stars and does not let the seller respond to the ratings and ask the buyer what the problem was. They actually forbid it! They have also implemented a new policy that does not allow the seller to mention feedback in any way, shape, or form in their descriptions.....this also has been forbidden.
On the 19th of April ebay will also implement a new final value fee (commission) that will also charge you for any shipping charges incurred. So if I sell you an item for $10.00 and it costs you the seller $10.00 to ship, the buyer will pay $20.00 total to the seller, then ebay charges their seller FFV fees based on ALL $20.00.
They want to become another amazon.
If you are interested in phone cords or memory cards for cameras, etc. then ebay might be for you. If you like helping someone start up a major company, get charged exorbant rates, be treated rudely, and unfair....then tossed to the side like an empty can,.... then ebay is for you. Otherwise I advise you read some of the forums on ebay and see how many thousands of people are unhappy, then make your own choice......

Ebay treats sellers like dirt - high fees are going to get higher now that Ebay will help itself to a hefty % of the sale price PLUS shipping. Sellers don't benefit from shipping costs so why must they pay a commission on them? Postal fees are through the roof as are all other costs associated with selling. Why should Ebay shareholder profits go up while seller profits fall year after year? Soon the only items that will be offered on Ebay is junk from China that you can get at Walmart - small sellers that offer quality unique items will soon be edged out completely.

Don't sell on Ebay! Ebay has effectively made it not profitable to sell on ebay. Who gets all the money? Ebay does. Sellers are financially penalized for feedback even if it is not verified. If someone insists on cheaper rates and parcel post shipping, they can turn around the score me low for slow shipping. Then my fees go up. Does this make sense to you? Dishonest people are everywhere and they should not be the ones deciding what percentage I receive. l wish I had never invested so much time and money. I hope for the day that another site LIKE ebay comes along and offers a fair opportunity to both buyers and sellers. I'm not trying to get rich, but ebay does not reward hard working, honest sellers. They set us up for failure and do not care about sellers. They have us where they want us. Like any other abusers it happens over time and by the time you realize it, it's too late.

horrible place to sell. I sell on Ebay and off Ebay. On Ebay the buyer can bid and never pay. Your product cannot be relisted until you win the unpaid item dispute. Scammer's abound!.. Better send tracking with everything. I have a buyer now that won an item for .99 and refused to pay until i had to wait 4 dyas for Ebay to allow me to send a dispute for an unpaid item, i win they pay then immediately turn around and left negative feedback, I contact Ebay and they removed the feedback but did nothing to discourge this low life behaviour. As of today i have 11 people that have not paid after 3 days and 11 unpaid item disputes sent. Then people complain about the time it takes for them to recieve their item? Ha....The sellers have left in droves..the variety of items has shrunk. I only keep the account for the few item's i sell now. Other than that it sucks for sellers.

Everyone beware!!!!!! If you sell on ebay there is a new scam to watch for. The item will sell and be paid for just fine, the buyer will leave positive feedback and then in a couple weeks, before their 30 days are up, there will be a problem. Now they want a partial refund up to 50% of the cost. If you don't give it to them the item will not be returned and you will issue a refund! sure you wonder WTF!!! Well the buyer just sends you back an empty box and the tracking number shows it was received so ebay gives them their money back and you are screwed!!!! It has now been going on one month and I still don't have my money or the gold ring back. I filled out all the case info, abuse info and all the other case related crap and was told I would hear back in 48 to 72 hours, that was 11 days ago. So take ebay for what it is... A SCAM!!!!!!!!!

As an avid eBayer (turquiose star and rising), I can't say enough good things about eBay. Once you get set up with a Pay Pal account, shopping and selling is made easy.

eBay sends out reminders, charges reasonable fees, has buyer and seller protection, discount offers, good customer support, and navigating the site is easy.

I've found many things on eBay that I thought I'd never see available again and I've sold many things I thought I'd never get rid of.
