Truthfully, I believe that there are two types of people who would answer yes to this question. The first are those who have never tried it and are negative about anything new and so their opinion is pretty well useless. The second are those who joined, didn’t know what the fudge they were doing and so failed miserably, and once again their opinion is just as useless as the first group, although some may listened to them as at the very least they’ve given it a try.
The truth is that eBay is not bullshit, because if you know what you are doing you can actually make money. The truth of the matter is that I have saved hundreds of dollars by buying products on eBay, and every dollar I saved means more money in my pocket, and in essence that is money earned. Here are some simple eBay tricks for safe online shopping.
- You only shop for things that you need, because if you’re going to buy things just because they’re cheap you may as well throw your money away.
- Only buy from those showing a feedback percentage of 98% positive or better. If others are happy with their service then you probably will be too.
- Check to see that their delivery charges are not exorbitant. Some sellers offer cheap goods but slug you with a high postal charge. If you think their postage is over the top then look elsewhere.
- Don’t just look at the item and the price. Check out the seller by clicking on their link to find out how long he’s been operating and what sort of feedback score he’s got.
- Is the product new? Watch out, many people buy something thinking it’s new when it wasn’t and it’s their own fault because they didn’t the product information carefully.
Follow these tips and you will have a pleasant eBay experience. If you’re not an eBay member, now is a good time to join as they are having their first ever Super Sale!
