The Good

  • Sorting fields
  • Time in business
  • Buy and sell

We love that there are so many sorting fields for each product which help narrow down what you are looking for. The fact that they have been in business for almost 20 years successfully is also a good thing in our opinion. This is also not just a place to buy items, but you can sell your own if you choose as well. Being able to bid on items sometimes means that you can get extremely good deals. The Buy it Now option also lets you bypass all the waiting that is done through auctioning, though be advised that you may pay a higher price to get it right then than if you participated in an auction.

The Bad

  • Product comparison
  • Reviews

We really wish there was a way to compare products side by side, but with the variety of products being sold and by so many different people, this might not be something they will ever be able to offer. There are also no product reviews available. The wide range of products being sold and many of them from individuals instead of merchants might make this hard, but it would be a nice feature.

The Bottom Line

Overall is a good shopping engine if you aren't looking to compare items. There is such a wide array of products to choose from and they change daily so if you can't find what you need at first, you can wait and watch to see if something becomes available to you. There are so many features available to using eBay that make it easy to use.

eBay is a great alternative to Amazon if the customer is looking for a more specific good. From anything to use graphics cards to brand new board game models eBay has it all.The only downside to eBay is there is a liability in trustworthiness of its sellers.

I used eBay to but my son a vintage Baltimore Bullets basketball jersey for Christmas. The seller had a high feedback rating and was considered "Top rated Plus". The price was just ok, I could not find it any other place so really had no choice. The jersey came in 6 days which is not bad considering it was December. I would not buy from eBay unless the seller has many positive reviews as there a lot of scams especially around knock-off clothes brands. The selection at eBay is huge but can be hard to find some things if they are not a well-known object - you get a lot of "false positives" in the search sometimes. Will continue to use eBay especially for things I can't find elsewhere.

We have both bought and sold for many years on eBay. I love that I can enter just about any item and find what I am looking for... and that they offer both used and new options. I love the buy it now feature, but enjoy the challenge of the bidding for select items. They have great customer service that is very helpful when an item is not delivered or the product received is not as advertised.
