The Case For.

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.

However much you might dream of a t
ruly international marketplace, int
ernational postage costs will alway
s bring you back down to reality wi
th a thud. 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!

Now that you know so much about eBa
y, in fact, why not use it to do yo
ur holiday shopping? Millions of sm
art shoppers from around the world
already flock to eBay every holiday
 season to save on their presents a
nd other holiday stuff – the next e
mail will show you how to become on
e of those people.
