Advantages Lots of Choice, Bargains to be found, Easy to use
Disadvantages Selling Can be Costly
Personally I can honestly admit that I am addicted to eBay (Step 1 right?), and have been so since I first got grips with the computer and the Internet in my early/mid-teens, where I use to browse around the web and place all my pocket money in my bank and buy something which I thought was an absolute bargain and wait for it to come a few days later. It has been many years later and I still get as excited to buy something of eBay and the few days of anticipation and excited awaiting for something to come through the door, it is honestly like Christmas to me!
But enough about me, let me tell eBay actually is.
Basically, eBay is a very large market of private users and small scale home businesses selling their goods which you purchase, and pay for via the Internet using an electronic method (99.9% of the time being PayPal) and the seller sends the item to you.Recently however eBay have gotten some branded outlet stores to join them and they have their own stores on eBay which I found a very welcome addition as they make very good deals on occasion on eBays Daily Deals page, with massive discounts on genuine branded clothing or electronic goods.
Well, let me answer this question with another question. What else can you use that is as ‘BIG’ as eBay with as much product and demand as eBay on the Internet offering online auctions? Yeah, no one! eBay’s biggest competition is Amazon, and they are pretty much in a whole different market, so eBay aren’t just a monopoly with online auctions, but they own the bloody dice!This said, having anyone ever interested in buying/selling something on the web will 9/10 times go to eBay in the UK as classified websites like Craigslist aren’t as popular as they are in America. But this is a good thing as everyone is in one place, so if you’re selling you got a wide range of people as a potential customer, and when you buy, you got lots of items to choose from, so kind off of a ‘win win’ situation (except for the fees, look below).
