I personally don't spend much time on Ebay, but when I do, I like to look hard. I find a lot of interesting things, but never buy anything. I don't know why, it just seems a little too unreliable. I've tried listing numerous things, and always had malfunctions. It ended up working out, but it was still a little edgy. So, how often do you buy things off of Ebay?

Hi there TempusTime! I do not spend much on things on Ebay. I just buy stuffs that I need and are more practical or cheaper to buy from other Ebayers. I also just buy from those with good feedback. It is risky to buy things that are posted on Ebay and so it takes extra effort to make the decision whether to buy a certain item or not.

Hi Dolce_Vita78! I like your enthusiasm. Haha. Yeah, I like buying cheap things, because...well...it cost's less money! Haha. Maybe I am am a cheapskate (if that's how you spell it), but if it helps me out, then I could care less. Yeah, I only ever bought things from people if their feedback was 05% or higher (usually higher). :)

i buy and sell on ebay a good part of the time. i find that i can find really interesting stuff on there that i wouldnt be able to find anywhere else (well, locally anyways) and now with christmas just around the corner, i will keep looking for presents for others.

Yeah that's true, but you've never had a bad transaction? Those are the kinds of reasons that make me regret ever buying things on Ebay. Although if it helps out with Christmas, then by all means use Ebay. :D

ebay - ebay pioc
i used to buy off ebay all the time... i've even sold some things on there... i like looking on there from time to time. you can find some really weird and cool things on there and you can find some awesome deals. clothes are cheap but shipping sometimes kills it, plus you can't try it on so that sucks lol but yeah. i just use it whenever now.. probably a few times a year i'd say.. it seems like i used to buy something every month back when i was using it all the the time though lol shopping on ebay can be addicting i guess...

Yes, true. I hate the shipping though. Sometimes it's way too costly. I think the sellers get the price for it wrong a lot. Haha about the clothes comment. Yeah Ebay used to be addicting to me, but not anymore now that they screwed up so much. Haha
