Please state your top reason why you like ebay? or if you dont like ebay, why you dont like it? I like it because you can basically by ANYTHING there and i wont say i dont like it but the downside would be that the things people sell there is used

I do not have any ebay account yet and I do have the idea of joining as it could provide a lot facilities and also convenient. I believe it is a modern way for us to purchase any items in the much simplest way. I no longer have to go shopping in malls or stores as in my normal practice. In this way I could save much time and petrol. Another advantage of buying things on ebay is that I could brows through the attractive multifarious items. I do enjoy the convenient of the delivery at my door way.

hmm..i like ebay coz most of the items that are not available in my country, is available on ebay. There are a whole lot of varieties, and sometimes even if the item is available in the store, it's cheaper on ebay. of course, there are some really expensive stuff there too. apart from that, some of the things that i don't like about ebay is that not all sellers ship internationally, and if they do, the shipping fee is rather expensive.

i really like ebay because you can generally find interesting and unusal things that you maybe cannot find anywhere else. I also like ebay because i have bought sterling silver rings there for next to nothing (even with shipping charges) but the same thing at a local store would be at least twice that amount.

I love e-bay and I've given them a lot of business! I mainly buy more than sell, but I have sold items on there. Concert tickets and random collectibles. I only had 1 bad experience and I bought this Mickey Mouse rug for my aunt for an x-mas present. Once I got it, it looked like it was falling apart! It stunk so I washed it on delicate and it fell apart even worse. I contacted the seller and he took it back and paid for shipping plus the original price of the item! I got lucky though, my husband had a worse experience. He had listed a car for sale, someone bid on it and never paid. Also, he never received an item he bought that was over 100 for his car! But for me, I like e-bay and will continue using them
