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 carries everything you may need. Prices and selection are reasonable. And most sellers accept returns.

Have an account and still buy however it seems that some of the business that use there site are not that trust worthy. I have always got my money back and they do back you but it should be more watched and an eye kept on repeat offenders of bad products.

I cant say I love ebay because their interface is difficult to navigate and I am always skeptical as to if I can trust the products I am buying on ebay. I dont want to be scammed and I always worry this will happen on ebay.

It seems that I can find most products I need on eBay. However, it seems that the quality of most products offered aren't new. I do like the bid option or buy it now option, allowing me purchasing variety.

eBay doesn't have the very newest or best quality items, but if you're looking for something that works and will get here when they say it will, or even before. Would recommend.

I love eBay. I buy everything on eBay. If I see something I like in the store, I will just look it up and buy it on ebay for WAY less. No need to pay retail. And the customer service is the best out there - in line with Amazon.

eBay is great for finding cheap deals, but you just have to be careful with who you're buying from. Plus, auctions are a lot of fun and can lead to getting gread deals on used and new stuff.

I used eBay to buy books when I was in college. I was usually able to find the book I needed for half the price than at the bookstore. Then once I was done with it they made it easy to resell it and so I would usually break even.

I used to use eBay all the time. They have a really good variety of choice, and I like that they now have a Buy It Now option. It's main advantage over sites like Amazon is that people will put up a bundle of their own things, so you can get really good deals. My payments have always been processed correctly, and I have gotten good credits for both signing up and for selling things myself. They have done a good job of vetting sellers as opposed to a few years ago.

It's a mixed bag. They are so bad at quality control, and you have to be careful to avoid bootlegs or inferior products. If you do get a bootleg, well, there's usually not much ebay can do for you.

The last time that I used ebay was about 10 years ago. I have had a bitter taste in my mouth ever since. I ordered an ipod shuffle and when it arrived it didn't even turn on. It took 2 months to send the item back and get a refund. If you are looking for a good product I would be wary of using this service. You never know what you are going to get!

Better prices than any other site. Need to encourage sellers to pay shipping more often and at least put a real shipping price rather than an inflated one (example: $3.99 rather than $7.95)
