eBay gives both businesses and individuals the option to buy and sell online. They also boast being able to have people receive and send digital payments through PayPal. Not only just a place to buy and sell, they also offer commerce, retailing and digital marketing for their merchants. This is one of the largest online shopping places you can find to date. With more than 700 million products listed, you can find nearly anything your heart desires.
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.
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.
Ebay is a great tool to find used items at a great price! I have always had a good experience using Ebay. They have SO many items to choose from and have an effective process for bidding. I sometimes wonder about the legitimacy of some profiles- but I have never had a problem. I have always gotten my packages in a timely manner and it has looked at expected.
I've never bought anything on eBay, because I've found cheaper options on other websites. I think certain items are cheaper on eBay, but in my experience it hasn't been cheaper.
Ebay is hit or miss on shopping. Sometimes the deals are great and sometimes you don't even get a decent product. I use it only when I can't find the item somewhere else. There's not a great way to check the validity of the seller and item.
Great prices, although i wish there was a better way of screening the sellers. I've had too many experiences where the item being sold was not the correct item. Because of that, I've yet to use EBAY again.
I haven't used eBay in awhile due to Amazon but I use it every once in awhile when I am looking for a rare product. It's still a pretty great website! Awesome customer service as well.
I use EBay frequently and I have never had any issues with the sellers or products.
Tough to know what you are getting. Each vendor is different. Good variety and low prices but I am a little scared every time I order.
They have a good website and offer a lot of great products. I also feel comfortable contacting them with issues. They make selling and buying very easy and hassle free.
I was nervous about ordering from here. So far, I've only had good experiences with the sellers.
Have been using ebay since the first year they started. I am happy to say their service allows me to shop from home without fighting the crowds. It also allows me to sell my products around the country.
I am always scared to buy things from here because I feel like I am going to be scammed. However, all of my experiences with purchasing things on Ebay have been positive. I have never been scammed on Ebay either
I recently bought some shoes from eBay that I couldnt find anywhere else. It was really easy to find them and order them, I would definitely use eBay again for items like this, ones that you can't find anywhere else will usually be here.
Consumer protection has not been as good recently (if they were ever good).
I got a package that had a textbook and I got an empty wrapper where the book was ripped out.
I tend to be a little hesitant when shopping on eBay and buying something used but eBay guarantees every product that you buy so that makes me feel better about shopping here more. Prices are always pretty good. I hadn't done thing until recently but I shop for new items on eBay. I have found good deals on clothing items that are brand new. eBay needs to do a better job of letting people know that they don't only sell used/vintage items. eBay sells a lot of the same things Amazon does.
Really great place to go, especially if you have time to track items and work out when to bid. I've saved a lot of money by timing my bids really well and have had good experiences with the shipping timing.
I've used Ebay while looking at cars, but I was almost scammed once on a car. You have to be really careful when on Ebay. You can get some really great deals and find some very interesting and sometimes rare items, but you have to be careful not to get scammed.
I've used Ebay only a couple of times and didn't really enjoy it. The layout is a bit outdated, it doesn't feel like there is all that much moderation going on, and I guess I just really don't like bidding wars. I know it's up to the seller, but I really hate when they don't have a buy now option. I guess that is just the nature of Ebay and it's just not for someone like me.

I use ebay a lot, and I have never had a problem that wasn't resolved quickly and efficiently. The customer service is friendly and helpful, and they vet sellers well.
EBay is one of the sites I use for comparison shopping. It is rare that I have need of filing a complaint or to return an item, and the vendors have been cooperative. The majority of my purchases and deliveries have been satisfactory, and I will continue to shop at Ebay.com.
