  • I have bought over 70 things on ebay. Nearly every time has been great - I am careful about who I buy from. (Lots of my kids clothes is used lots of clothing from other parents).. I've only sold one or two items and doing that I had some attempted fraud. Read the descriptions really closely, if its not in the description - ask, never assume.

  • I have never had a a problem but my boyfriend got ripped off with a defective product. It took months to get his money back. Just go through PayPal so you are covered if the seller screws you over.

  • i both buy and sell on ebay. i've had a few bad experiences, but nothing that wasn't resolved to my satisfaction. always pay through paypal, always ship with confirmation and/or insurance, always double check your invoice for proper s&h, and always ask any and all questions prior to bidding!

  • We used to, but we got mad at being overcharged for shipping "and handling" and jewelry especially didn't look as good as in the photo.
