  • mine has been pretty good- I tend to buy only from sellers with over 99% postive feedback or at least close to it.
    and I usually do buy it now and pay right away. I'm not big on bidding-but if it's something that's hard to find or whatever then I will
    I had one experience with a girl I had bought a doll from-that went well but a couple months later I bought another from her and she never sent it, and had closed her acct- I got the money back, but it was a pain. Usuallly if there is an issue and you get ahold of the seller they tend to take care of the problem
    I love ebay!

  • I only buy from those who have a high positive feedback rate. Feed them before you bid if its lower then 99% to see why. I sell things as well as buy. I am a big buyer on Gymboree clothes for my kids. I only purchase new..but have gotten some real steal of deals! It all depends on what your shopping for. I have bought Southern Living at home products as well as Longaberger baskets on here as well. As for price, I always look for the best deal. It depends on what you feel comfortable spending but don't forget you also have to include shipping in your highest bid.

  • I have bought and never ever had something lost in the mail and they are very good at resolving any issues.
