Whatever you want to buy, whether i t’s large or small, cheap or expens ive, everyday or just plain weird, the chances are you can find it on eBay. It’s the largest auction site in the world, and when it comes to the variety of what’s on sale, siz e is vital. When was the last time you heard of someone getting a grea t deal on a weird and wonderful ite m at uBid or Yahoo Auctions? People who’ve got used to eBay don’ t often stop to think how amazing i t is – an online marketplace where you can buy things from all over th e world, without leaving your home. You can get things that you would never think anyone would bother to sell, and you can get them cheaply. The powerful search engine means t hat you can find things you’ll like without even knowing exactly what you’re looking for. Not only that, but you can send mon ey quickly and electronically to al most all of these sellers, without worrying about currency conversion or exchange rates or anything else. If you’re looking for rarities or b argains, eBay is an ideal place to buy. The Case Against.

Do you have any idea how much it costs to send even the sma llest thing to the other side of th e world? Then there’s the fact that eBay is packed with fraudsters and scammers , preying on the innocent users who ’ve heard that eBay is a great plac e to buy stuff but don’t know the r isks. People can lose thousands of dollars, and eBay do nothing. Is th at fair? It is hard to even leave n egative feedback for the very worst sellers, for fear that they will r etaliate and leave a black mark aga inst your own account. eBay is unfair to buyers when other buyers don’t play fair, and unfair to sellers who end up selling thin gs for a very low price, only to ha ve eBay’s fees take away the last p art of their profit margin. The Verdict. Those are the arguments for and aga inst. So is eBay good, or bad? I’ll leave it up to you to decide. For me, though, the answer is this: as long as you’re aware of the downsid es, and you know how to protect you rself from scammers and fraudsters and how to get ahead of the competi tion, eBay is one of the best place s in the world to shop. Having foll owed us this far, of course, you no w know all these things, which mean s that for you, eBay is a great place!
