If yes, what product? Have you ever had any problem when buying stuffs on ebay? For me, I have never bought stuffs on ebay. Because I don't like doing auction because I have to wait it in order to get the stuff that I would like to buy. Please share your experience on ebay.

I but things on ebay occasionally. One has to be really cautious when buying things there; look at the seller reputation and look at the product carefully.

I am both a buyer and a seller on eBay and have done for a number of years. I love the excitement of an auction but try not to get too carried away with bidding. You don't have to wait that long on auctions, I usually bid within the last moments on items I am interested in

I understand, it can sometimes be like torture waiting to buy something. I am fortunate to say that I have purchased 10 items on ebay and all have went great. I have heard some horror stories of course about people not receiving the item, etc. I have mostly bought toys for my kids. Some things you can get on ebay are a good deal. Just to keep from getting scammed, buy from people with a high number of transactions and good positive feedback. You can find out all of that stuff easily. Hope I helped.

I buy a lot of things on ebay; because I live in a small town with little variety and high prices. I bought a car, vitamins, clothes, books, candles, gifts, jewelry, auto accessoreis, air purifiers, CDs, DVDs, video games, etc. I have rarely had any problems. If you do not want to wait for the auction items either search with the "buy it now" option OR look for items that are ending within 1 hour. That way you do not have a long wait AND if no one else is bidding on an item you can get some great deals.

I've never purchased anything from ebay myself but my daughter has a lot. I'm like you - just don't like the idea of waiting to find out if I'm getting what I wanted or not. It's funny though because I love going to 'live' auctions and have done that for years.

I have sold over 200 items on eBay... but I have not bought anything yet. The thing that what I don't like about buying things on the internet... is that while the product appears cheaper... by the time they charge you for packing and postage... it is the same price than in the shop. I would only buy something on the Internet if I could not get it in the shop. Or if it was a lot cheaper than in the shop. What I sold on eBay were collector items which could not be bought in the shop... and were cheap.

I have purchased lots of things on ebay. I used to be hooked on it, I think...lol. I've bought books, electronics, car parts, and some other things I can't remember. I haven't had any trouble with them so far and I've been an ebayer for about 7 years now. You should give it a try. You may just want to choose items with the Buy It Now logo so that you won't have to wait for the auction to end before you get what you want. Just a suggestion.

I buy baseball cards all the time online. It's probably my primary site for buying baseball cards. It's a great marketplace for items that aren't readily available in your area.
