The Highs and Lows of eBay!

AdvantagesMany Buyers, Sellers & Items, Bargains, Shop at home, Sell your stuff, Make Money!

DisadvantagesTime wasters, dishonest users, competition, Fees, Risks, Unjustified auction 'pulling'

"Start your own Online Business on eBay eBay is an online auction house, but more commonly referred to as an 'online marketplace' because many items can also be bought at a fixed price. eBay is one of the most visited websites on the Internet and can only be described as an online phenomenon, even being featured in blockbusters such as Men in Black, Transformers, etc. With hundreds of millions of items listed worldwide, and millions of items bought ..."

"==eBay== If you ever use the Internet, or been around a computer at all, wait, let’s just say live in the 21st century , you’ve probably heard of eBay from somewhere or like a lot of people have probably used it as eBay is one of the highest ranking websites on the Internet with millions of hits every day.

Welcome to the world of eBay !

AdvantagesSell to a worldwide market

DisadvantagesCan become addictive !!

""Oh no !", I hear you cry, "Not another eBay review ! What's wrong with the other 384 that are already on this site ?!?" The answer to that question - absolutely nothing.

However, I have been using the site for many years now, and hope that my input will provide further help to potential buyers and sellers on the biggest auction website in the world.......

Our Postman always rings more than twice!

AdvantagesMake money from unwanted stuff

DisadvantagesPostman may get to hate you

"Our postman is kept well busy delivering mail to our door. No surprise really as we trade on Ebay and other auction sites and the mail is delivered by the sack full every day. Before I go into this Opinion please allow me to make it clear that Ciao is my community zone and is personal to me. I do not wish to name the Ebay store that I run with my brother and I do not wish to name the websites we run either. It is for this same reason that I have ..." Read review

Buyer, Seller, eBayer!

AdvantagesThe biggest online auction in the world

DisadvantagesSome dodgy folk - both buying and selling

"Not another eBay review? As the former operator of a full time eBay-based business I hope that I may be able to offer something useful. If not, I’m sure I’ll hear about it! What’s it all about? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ eBay is the world’s largest online auction site… as most of us will have read at some time or another. What is an online auction? How does it work? Is it safe? Can I make a profit from selling? Can I buy a bargain? All these questions ..." Read review

I first heard of ebay from a friend who had purchased a pair of Diesel trainers for very cheap and then he started telling me all about it. i went home and was straight on to have look!

Auction Heaven

AdvantagesBargains Galore ... no, honestly.

DisadvantagesPlenty of unsavoury people - people all over the world use it.

"www.ebay.co.uk I have been a user of eBay for a few years now, and despite my early scepticism concerning its merits, when a friend first recommended it to me, I finally, after about a year mind, gave it a try. To be fair, I have had a few bad experiences since joining but nothing that has put me off utilising the service for good … at this stage anyway! And, that is despite tonight's episode of Watchdog on BBC covered the risks of buying on ..." Read review

Now You Can Have A Birthday *EVERY* Day! Diamond review

AdvantagesFun, making money, lots of parcels arriving!

DisadvantagesNeed to be aware of bad Ebayers, can be addictive.

"INTRODUCTION How would you like to feel like it was your birthday every day? First, you would get a postal delivery of envelopes full of cheques. (Admittedly no birthday cards, but bear with me!) Then Parcel Post arrives and you get lots of different packages. Opening them, you find books you have wanted to read for ages, new clothes, signed photos of celebrities you admire, DVDs and CDs. Sounds great, eh? It is. So what is it that gives you ..." Read review

Old knickers and petticoats going for a song Review with images

AdvantagesClear your attic and make a profit

DisadvantagesSome rip off artists and mad Frenchmen

"For those of you that have been living on another planet for the past 10 years Ebay is an international auction / sales site, where businesses and private sellers compete to sell their wares at the best possible price and countless millions more vie to get the best possible bargains. If you have read any of my earlier reviews you may have realised that I like a bargain, enjoy making a few extra £s and I am passionate about recycling. Ebay provides ..." Read review

Introducing the site that has captured the world

Advantagescan find some good bargains and convenient to use

Disadvantagesbeware of high postage charges

"There are millions of websites on the Internet from all over the world. There are personal homepages, family websites, news websites, pen pal websites, websites that pay you money and websites that take your money. Most websites I would say are one’s that make a profit. People now choose to shop online for almost everything because of the sheer convenience of just sitting down and clicking a mouse button. Even I’ve got to admit that ..." Read review

Ebay is no longer the site it once was

AdvantagesRare & unusual items are still there to be had, you can pick up the odd bargain

DisadvantagesHigh fees, non existent customer service, to many 'Buy it now' items

"When I first discovered Ebay some 12 years ago I thought it was just about the best site on the internet. You could search and find just about anything as well as sell all your old junk (Er, I mean unwanted things) for cash. The layout of the site has never been brilliant but it's good enough to do the job, and over the years Ebay have added some nice features to help buyers and sellers. I've made literally thousands of transactions on Ebay over ..." Read review

Going, going....gone!

AdvantagesYou can buy most things there and often make a saving

DisadvantagesSome members let the side down

"...review will be focussing on ebay.co.uk specifically as this is the one I use more often. *Layout of the website* The homepage is very bright and colourful. There are today's deals which show some of the best deals from the business sellers that day. These tend to be clothes or electricals and for example today they have a Sanyo digital camera (14MP) for £49.99 and an Ipod Touch 3rd Generation 64GB for £199.99. On the homepage there is also ..."

What is Ebay? * * * * * * * * * * Ebay is an online auction shopping site. Almost anything can be bought on Ebay (except livestock) from normal, everyday items to weird and wonderful.
