I have purchased goods from numerous sellers and 90% of them sent me goods that were either broken, looked badly made or stopped working after a few weeks.
Not impressed and now (unlike before) eBay is the last place I will go.
One of the first places I turn to when looking for particular items. Only had one bad experience in some 6 years.
Auctions can be exciting - frustrating when you miss out in last few seconds! But thrilling when the dice lands in your favour!!
A very wide choice available and plenty of scope to bid, buy now or make an offer.
Have yet to sell on Ebay.
I bought a mobile phone from ebay which after a month sropped working (reported as stolen). When i contacted to the seller he denied everything and it took me more than a month to get my money back and i wasted so much time sending emails to ebay, seller and police.
Once again i bought a memory card 32gb from ebay and it turned up it has been flashed and only stores 2gb again i'll have to contact ebay as wel as seller and had to lost postage money and time. It is compketely disaster if you'r buying goods from a private seller.

Har bestilt en del fra Ebay, både uk.co, com og de...... Jeg er meget glad for deres Ebay buyer protection som giver mig tryghed som forbruger. De fleste gange jeg har bestilt via Ebay har været super godt, de gange hvor det har fejlet lidt har det ikke været Ebay´s skyld. Kan klart anbefales.....
I bid on a 9ct gold watch, then I found out it was gold plate so I asked the seller to take of my bid but he diden't ' know how. I got in touch with eBay but by the time I got a answer it was too late I had won the bid. eBay told me to get in touch with the seller so I woulden't get a bad mark for not paying as he was the only one that can do this. I got in touch with the seller to tell him shot eBay said but got a lot of abuse so I have got a bad reputation and I dont
The large and varied offering allow for a wide range of purchases, especially allowing for the win-win combinations that reuse useful products, provide for otherwise unavailable items, as well as identifing options not known prior to using the site's seach engine. Protection for the buyer and seller - significant insurance against scams or dishonest sellers reduces the probability of a loss to less than one quarter of one percent (Less than 1 in 400 transactions.) And when that one in 400 happens, customer service responds and resolves the issue.
Terrible customer service (all they do is send standard replies which do not answer your question. & you can only ask a question if it is in their questions list!) & very expensive comission. For example, they take 10% on thinks like mobile phones! ( £30 on a £300 phone) Yet they only take £25 on a £10,000 car!

If there is one thing that is really getting my goat, it is these stupid DSR's. You have no control over these, and if your "purchaser" has had a bad day, you can lose valuable scores. Not only that, but you then get Ebay sending you emails with advice on how to get better! And of course, you cannot contact them (Ebay) about it, as you just get a rather curt response
Everyone likes to bash on Ebay saying that the items are all knock-offs or junks. The trick is: Use Your Brain! Don't order from someone who clearly has negative feedbacks, or sold 1 - 2 items yet brag that they sold millions of products. Do your research! If they sell you a chip for your car that adds 100HP... don't buy it! If you are smart about your shopping, Ebay is one of the BEST places to find things you can't locally. Or even alternative options that are cheaper but still functional. I have had only minor problems with shopping from ebay but everytime I either got a refund or a replacement so I am happy with the service. Ebay DOES protect you! All you have to do when you're in trouble is ASK for help. Ebay will protect their shoppers from scams! Don't try to tough it out and argue with the seller if they are not cooperating. Buy smart and this is one of the best place!
what a friend we have in Ebay. I am in awe at the way they have continued to take care of the consumers, they protect us and make sure the products are legitimate. i trust ebay and compliment them on there superb service. I appreciate you Ebay
I have been a keen user of Ebay for several years now, both as a buyer and seller. The system is easy to use, and the assistance offered in all areas is fantastic. I cannot imagine using any other online auction site.
I have been purchasing from eBay for many years now and find them to be approachable and helpful with regard to any queries I may have. Whatever your need you can almost always find it on eBay. They keep you informed of any new products that you may be interested in and keep track of any purchases you have made and keep you in the loop with regard to delivery. I would highly recommend them.
great site always check ebay before buying anythingand to get obsolete items
All of the items that I have won on EBay have been outstanding in quality and arrive quickly.
