I have bought loads and loads of things off ebay and I also sell on there too, I often worry that I am not going to get what I have bought but so far I have never had a problem with any of the other sellers that I have bought from.

You're lucky! I've been ripped off a couple times. Of course, the items were less than $25, so I wasn't entitled to the protection plan.

That's not very comforting to know. I make it a point to look at feedback when I buy off of e-bay. They should at least have 95% positive feedback.

I've bought a lot on Ebay. Mostly it was baby clothes. We have a large family and a few months before I had my youngest son I bought a lot of baby clothes on Ebay. So much so that he is now almost 18 months old and all I've had to buy him since he was born is a jacket and a pair of shoes. I got enough off of Ebay to last him almost 2 years and I only spent about $75.

I didn't know you could get cash back when you buy. I haven't bought anything off of Ebay for a while. I only do it when I'm looking for something specific and cheap.

well i certainly have, and not just once. i've bought from both store and individual sellers. i don't mind using second hand, or even third hand stuff, as long as it's value for money. i enjoy bargain hunting on ebay when i have free time on my hands. i've attached a picture of a bathroom set i bought from an individual seller. if i had gotten it from the store, it would cost me at least twice the price. it's really a great bargain and i've put it to good use. cheers ;p

I bought several items from PDA to books to baby clothes. I was never bitten up till now. Sometimes it takes a bit of time for the goods to be delivered but they were always delivered at the end of the day.

I have so far only bought two items on ebay.. an action figure from the Final Fantasy VII Advent Children film and a metalic Blue PSP that runs on Custom Firmware.. I have only sold one item there and its a set of grind king trucks.. all transaction were made by meet ups so, in case that we didn't agree on anything, we could always call the deal off

I have bought a lot of things on Ebay. Most of what I bought was small Fenton glass pieces, jewlery, and a couple of DVDs and video games. My purchases were all under $50 so I cannot speak for the experience of buying larger items that way. I have never had a problem as a buyer, only as a seller, and the issues I had did get resolved.

I have bought a few items of ebay, mainly Wallace and Gromit things. I mainly check out the seller making sure they have alot of positive feedback. I have managed to sell a few items aswell. ebay is very handy if you are having a clear out. It can get very addictive though especially when you really want that item, you have to remind yourself if teh item is really worth the amount you want to pay.

I have been both a buying and a seller on eBay for a few years now. I have sold mostly things I don't need any more from the house and bought some gorgeous goth clothes for a fraction of the shop prices

I have been buying and selling on ebay since 2001! It is a great way to get items you need cheaply, it's tons of fun and you can sell your stuff on there with little-no fees, depending on the deals that arise. I suggest it very much, watch out though, it's like gambling. it's addictive!

I've bought tons of things on ebay. It's a great place to buy stuff because usually the prices are pretty low and you can find a lot of hard to get things on ebay. Some people are worried because they think the person will never send them what they order, or that everything on ebay is junk, like a big tag sale. I've never had a problem with getting what I ordered from ebay and there are so many fraud protections that I've never worried. As for there only being junk on ebay; most of the stuff on ebay is actually brand new. It's a great place to shop, especially if you want to save some money... it's fun to look around! Be careful though, it gets addicting haha.

I bought a pink maternity petticoat that was just adorable and new because I guess the lady was really petite but it fit me magnificently, I cant say that for other clothes while pregnant so I was happy. I also bought a lot of kids magazines for a few dollar and that included shipping and my daughter, 3 still looks through them but now I just get end of the year mags from the library for a buck a bundle. I like scanning through the pages of old toys and am looking for a old doll house that is just right for my daughter but still looking. The next thing I buy though will probably be a book of some kind or Adventure in Odyssey casettes (I have a 79 mercedes with casette player) tapes for my babes.

Yeah, I've bought lots of things on ebay, you have to watch it tho, it can get addicting. Pretty soon, you'll be looking at ebay all the time, just to see if theres anything on there you might need...haha.

I've bought a few things on ebay - my boyfriends xmas gift was from there an awesome dragon dagger for his collection, and a few d&d books. i've been tempted to try and sell items on there as well but can never decide what to try first. I make knitted baby blankets and would love to see if one would sell there.

I have bought many things off of ebay, since probable 2002 or 2003. I never buy anything without knowing the shipping first and I live in Canada if we are buying something from the States we have to make sure it 20 dollars or less otherwise we have to pay duty as well.
