"I think eBay is one of the good online shopping store because, eBay is more popular and they give their service very nicely and, also in good prices. I have found there are many people like me who are more satisfied with eBay online shopping."
"not really as good as it used to be. Lots of bull crap from China and deals that you can find locally nowadays.. better for selling stuff than buying if you ask me.Back in the day I used to sell all my stuff on here and make bank but now it's cluttered with crap and tons of low ballers too.."
"eBay is the WORST site I have ever dealt with. It has forgot me 2 times! I can't access my account cuz I guess it deleted it or something. NEVER buying ANYTHING from eBay EVER again!"
"I never had such a horrible experience like this in any online shopping like Ebay.Their service is worst.customer service is jus ridiculous.I have ordered an item, it was said I ll get the shipping details within 5 days. Even after 10 days I didn get any reply. I called the customer care, they are saying continously that "seller is ready to ship,but the courier has not been picked up,we hav sent the courier guys to pick up the product". And the seller is sayinig that the produc has been shipped wiwthin 4 days. ill nw I havn received d product.Have spent more than 2 hrs on phone tselk talkin to the customer care.These ppl r really brainless.I really suggest not to buy anythin on Ebay by seein offers. U ll not have any peace of mind.This Ebay will test ur patience to the core.Attitude s really poor."
"Ebay hits you with a lot of fees i sold a nintendo 64 for $150 and ended up paying $50 in fees! totally not worth it was my first time selling on ebay. I'm sticking to craigslist defiantly deleting my account. I called customer support and they just starting listing all the fees from left to right and i had no other choice to pay."
"Good:Cheap prices.Reliable.Provides information about users and products so you can make good decisions about the condition of used products. Ebay also sells new products.Bad:Ebay customer service has bad habits: interrupting, going on and on about stuff you didn't ask, etc. (For this reason, a 2 minute call to Ebay can take you 30 minutes or better. CS doesn't hear your question because they interrupt it. Then they talk over you and try to answer a question you weren't going to ask. Then you try to ask your question again. Again CS interrupts with a new answer to another question you don't have, etc.)"
"Reference Case #: 5040244370I would like to share my eye-opening experience at ebay. I would like to advice everyone to doubly weigh their decision before purchasing at ebay rather than Amazon only for some price benefits here. You are not sure that you will receive the same item you saw as advertised on ebay. If you unlucky and do not receive the same item then ebay will not protect your purchase by their exaggerated policy "ebay Buyer Protection" which says …Q1: What is the eBay Money Back Guarantee?“We guarantee that you will get the item you ordered or you will get your money back. eBay Buyer Protection covers the original purchase price plus original shipping on most items on ebay.com.”Q1: What happens when I ask eBay to step in?“If you received an item that wasn’t as described, we’ll typically help you return it to the seller first and then refund you. In the few cases where we don’t issue full refunds, it’s normally because an item eventually arrived, or because you decided to keep an item that wasn't as described instead of returning it.”Q2: What if the seller doesn't offer returns?“If you received an item that is not as described, or didn't receive an item at all, eBay Buyer Protection always protects you—even if the seller does not offer returns. If you received an item that was as described but you changed your mind and do not want it anymore, eBay Buyer Protection does not apply”I live in USA and I purchased leather car seat cushion covers from ebay sometime back. The seller (car0010) advertised this product as a leather product mentioning them as made up of "High Grade Imported Leather" at frequent places in their advertisement. But when I received the delivery I found that the covers are made up of Faux Leather (rexine). The back side of the material has fabric lining like rexine (synthetic leather) and it doesn't smell like leather even.When I contacted seller regarding this they straight way rejected my observation saying that the material is genuine leather. On further communications they accepted that the material is faux leather but refused to take care of return shipment saying … “Return shipping is responsibility of the buyer, we will full refund you when we got the item soundly”.Seller's Name (ebay): car0010Address: Xie Daotong,Rm 2002, #2, Lane 555, South He Nan Rd., 200010, Shanghai, ChinaI was not happy with the seller’s reply as the cost of shipping back the item from USA to China would be more than the cost of item itself. I escalated the case with ebay with proper documentation and send them the photos of the items I received but they replied back as follows …“When you receive the wrong item or it doesn't match the seller's description, you're required to pay for return shipping. It would certainly be great customer service for the seller to cover the cost of return shipping and it is something we strongly encourage. However, it is not something we are able to enforce as we only have access to the funds that you originally paid them. If the seller is unwilling or has failed to assist you in that aspect, then the return costs will be the buyer's responsibility.”I cannot see any content in ebay’s answer different than the seller's reply. I can surely bet that either they have overlooked the facts or their decision is simply biased with the seller's intent. Definitely it is not the honest resolution by ebay showcasing policies like "ebay Buyer Protection" to the customer. On one hand ebay is admitting that the item sent by seller doesn't match its description and at the same time they ask customer to bear the return shipment (for sending the wrong item back to the seller) for getting their refund.The customer care guys are rude to talk with, they provide meaningless arguments and try to enforce their decision on you without having any valid reasoning. I am certainly not happy with ebay. Now onwards I will not consider myself purchasing anything from ebay in future and I will not endorse ebay within my known circle in anyway. I know that certainly ebay will not be in loss after losing a customer like me. But I definitely know that if this is the way ebay continues to work it will not have a long lifecycle ahead."
"ebay has a few crooked sellers, they buy from walmart and target and resell on ebay marking up the prices as much as 300% so beware of Character Fashions and Character wonderland,total rip off."
"We sold some of our old stuff when we moved and eBay was a good place to find buyers. Oddly there were a couple items that simply went unpaid for and there is no real way to notify anyone about bad buyers."
"I'm a long time Ebayer, beginning in 1997. At that time, selling fees along with Paypal fees were around 4%, with fees lower on high dollar items. Now, it's a minimum of 13%. If you sold a $2000 item 10 years ago, the fees were $80. One year ago, the fees would have been $160. Now they are $260. Next, as a seller, you used to be protected from "buyer's remorse," which means if a buyer changed their mind, tough luck. Now, a buyer can buy a brand new item from you, return it 45 days later because they can't pay their rent, don't like the color, whatever, and you have to give a full refund including shipping costs. You can then sell your now used item at typically 50-70% of new. Sellers have been therefore forced to be more like a Walmart...but at their expense rather than Ebay. Ebay is a good place to buy if you want to save a bit, but you have really look for good deals....the much higher fees have forced sellers to significantly raise their prices. "
"eBay is a terrible place to buy and sell from. They no longer care and if you get ahold of customer service reps you can barely understand them. They need to hire good people to manage this and they would make a lot more money!"
"eBay is a site id say buy with caution. I am a seller and a buyer and on both ends I have had various issues. Customer service is almost non-existent and unforgiving many times. I was served a warning and an item taken down for trying to sell a computer that had a windows logo on it.. apparently I cant show certain logos.. on products I own and am trying to re-sell... so it went up on Craigslist."
"ebay has became worse since few years back. I got order that I had to return due to outdated picture of item that I bought thinking it still made in US not in Mexico. Anyways 3 weeks since payment sent, 2 weeks since item shipped and received by seller. 1 week since I opened a case... and nothing going on. I am about to give up these 50$...."
"Ebay is the worst place in the world to sell. They treat all sellers like they are crap. I had a 99.9 rating and no low DSR's and they unilaterally terminate my seller priviledges after 8 years with no explanation at all. they said I had two cases that got esculated because they did not receive their items. I had 7000 successful transactions prior to that. They unilaterally decide their rules as they go. I hate them and stiffed them for 2700.00 as severance pay. screw them, and there Nazi hirachey."
"Good site just try to stick with sellers with high feedback and that are located in the USA."
