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.

Very Good. eBay provides a wide variety of products at prices you would find in store, as well as lower prices because of competition. What makes EBay so competitive is the ability to purchase at a set low price with free shipping and the wide array of products you can purchase. Customer service is excellent and there is fair return/refund policy.

Are use eBay on a weekly/monthly basis. Anytime that I no longer use something around the house, there is sure to be somebody on eBay wanting to buy it. EBay is allowed me to keep my house cleaner, and it’s an easy way to make money. The app on the phone is very easy to use, and it’s the first app I go to to sell stuff.

I have used Ebay a few times as a seller and a buyer, not the biggest fan of buying off ebay. I never really feel 100% like my product is real or authentic for some reason. Bought a Lakers jersey years ago but have no idea if it is a real Jersey. It was decent quality.

I buy lots of things off of Ebay. If you're looking for something rare this is the best place to look. I've found all sorts of cool things on Ebay. It is 100% my go-to when it comes to any music memorabilia, you can find almost anything you're looking for on there. Great customer service too; if you didn't get exactly what you ordered they refund you or replace it pretty quickly.

Let me tell you, big fan of eBay products, but they always think I am a crazy fraudulent person and I have to explain myself to a nice man in a call center every time I make a purchase. This is fine, but it is not very convenient. The call center employees are always nice, but it seems like an unnecessary precaution to buy an 8 dollar Coco pin.
