Is eBay a good site to use?

Website: is a website which lets users buy and sell items on the internet. Users can either buy auction style where they bid for the item and the user who has the highest bid wins the item. You can also buy items for a set price with the “buy it now” option. The buyer has to pay for the item using PayPal or their credit card.

Selling on eBay:

Selling on eBay is a tricky thing. You might not get the price that you actually want for your item because either other listings are less expensive, or no one is interested in your item. If your item is one that has a lot of listings, the best plan of action would probably be to list your item at the lowest pricey you are willing to take for your item.

If your listed item sells, try to get it out to your buyer as quickly as possible, also communicate with them if you’re not able to get it to them if you’re gone on vacation while it sold. Communicate with your buyer when you need to, it helps your relationship with them and they may continue to buy from you if you give them good service. Ship your package in a good strong envelope if it’s small or in a box if it’s bigger.

Buying and selling on eBay can be a great way for you to find a great deal or sell some unwanted items for extra money. If you are careful in choosing good sellers and give buyers a good experience, you won’t have any problems on eBay, just be careful of scammers and make sure to check the user’s feedback score. It’s a great website for buying and selling, so use eBay if you want to sell your items, or if you’re looking for a really good online deal.

Buying on eBay:

Buying on eBay is an interesting experience; you can either bid or buy the item at a set price. Sometimes you’ll win items and sometimes you won’t. It depends on the item you’re bidding for. Sometimes the buyer will pay shipping, sometimes the shipping is free.

Seller Reputation is Important:

Always look at the seller's reputation before buying from them, if they have a reputation of 99-100% it means that you can trust them and that the item you are purchasing will arrive on time and be in good condition. Check to see if they have negative feedback if you are unsure about purchasing from them.

Ask the Sellers Questions Before Buying:

In order to not be scammed by a buyer or a seller, you should look at their feedback from other eBay users in order to see if they’re a trustworthy buyer or seller. I have never had any problems buying or selling on eBay and if you want to have a good experience, it is recommended to only buy from sellers who have at least 99% feedback, but the best way to have a good experience on eBay is to go with sellers who have 100% feedback with eBay.ny re

Make sure you ask the seller any important questions before purchasing an item , that way they can answer any questions you need answered before you pay them money.

Also contact them if you need to return an item to get a refund.

Returning an Item to eBay:

I have had to return two items to eBay sellers, one was a pair of shoes that I had placed the wrong order for when I bought them for someone else. The other one was a Star Wars book with a misprint, the seller gave me a refund and let me keep the book.

Even thoughI haven't had to return items to eBay often, the sellers have been willing to refund my money. When my Star Wars Prequel Trilogy book arrived with missing pages, a massive misprint on the part of Random House, the eBay seller refunded my purchase and let me keep the defective book.


eBay Bucks Help You Pay for Items:

Every time you spend money on eBay, eBay will give you a discount in "eBay Bucks' which lets you save a little extra on your purchases. Unfortunately, they don't stack and they have an expiration date.

eBay does have gift cards that can stack and they don't expire, but they do have a limit on how many gift cards you can use on an item.

Should You Buy and Sell on eBay:

Should you buy and sell on eBay? I'd say you should, but always take a look at seller feedback before you purchase from them. And make sure to communicate with them if you have questions so they can help you solve any problems you have with your purchase.

If you're selling on eBay, just make sure to pack your packages very well and send them away as soon as you can. That way you can get a positve rating with the buyer.
