Have you done any shopping from ebay? Do you use your credit card or paypal account for this?

I actually probably do more bidding than winning, there are times I use the buy it now feature when it is available. I always pay with paypal since I have had some problems with sellers. It was nice getting a refund when my item didn't come.

I have still to try online payment. Whatever I have bought from ebay till date has been paid by cash on delivery. Have not thought of paying by paypal till date.

I no longer go shopping in Ebay. In the past I tried to buy stamps in Ebay and I paid for it by Paypal. It is no need for me to pay it by my credit card, as Paypal is already a better choice. I love China

I always pay with Paypal, but if it is a big-ticket item (one that costs more than $100) I will usually use my credit card through Paypal to give me added protection should something go wrong with the transaction. This way, if Paypal doesn't take care of the problem, I know my credit card will and I won't lose out.

Yes, I had. I don't use any credit card or any kind of mode of payment other than PayPal. I always use PayPal to pay for the purchases that I do. It's always safe to use the site's preferred mode of payment. It's for the buyer's and seller's protection.

Paypal does seem to be the choice of the majority here. I think there should be no harm if I too try it.

When purchasing something at eBay make sure that the seller has a good rating and positive feedbacks. It's safe to deal with sellers with good rating and positive feedback from his/her clients.

I was not aware that paypal gives a refund if the seller from ebay does not send the item. Thanks a lot for sharing this information.

I want to start buying from ebay but not too sure about how safe it is. That is why I am a bit skeptical.

I have bought and sold many items on ebay. I usually use my paypal account to pay and I generally require my bidders to use paypal when they buy from me. It is nice to have the added security of doing a paypal transaction.

I do not go for e-bay shopping. I prefer to go to market direct and buy products. However, I know one friend from mylot who is a seller at e-bay and I understand that she buys products from the market and displays it beautifully on e-bay, customers get attracted and buy products from her. I think you can use your paypal account and may be credit card too for buying any product. However, my advice is before you buy any product, please make sure that you may not get the same easily in your local market or area.

I've always felt funny about shopping online up until about 5 years ago... It was around my 33rd birthday that I bought something on-line for the first time... My girl friend bought me a watch, even though I don't like wearing watches that much, off of some web-site... Since then, I've done some shopping through, especially for past 2 years, ebay... I'm happy with 99% of the expriences I've had... There were only about 2 incidents that I lost out a bit but that was due to my fault so I can't really say anything bad about ebay... I would be careful on buying electronic items, though...

i havent done any shopping from ebay,though i like to browse through their catalouges.the shipping cost is usually more then the actual price of the product itself and i think someone told me that the question of quality is questionable.correct me if you have some information.

I'm an Ebay regular. I almost ALWAYS check Ebay on a regular basis and never hesitate to shop there. You MUST however check the reputation of the seller and you might be scammed of your money there. I have here and there.

Of course I use PayPal. You really can't NOT use PayPal there. It's pretty much the only way you are safe on Ebay. All those money order type things are usually a scam to get your money and run off with it.

Hey, I am happy to know that you are doing your shopping on e-bay. I want to know more about it. Do you sell on e-bay. I wanted to sell a book but hesitated as I was not sure if it will work or not.
