I am an eBay advertising affiliate which means that if you click a link from my blog that takes you to eBay and you purchase an item on eBay at that time, I will receive a commission from eBay for that sale.
I chose to become an eBay advertising affiliate because I have been buying and selling on eBay since February 2002 and have had many successful experiences. This positive history is why I became an affiliate. I have to believe in the product or service before I will become an affiliate. I've provided more details below.
Positive Experiences With eBay
At the time I am writing this blog I have made 347 transactions on eBay. This includes both buying and selling. I have a 100% positive feedback rating from those I've bought from and sold to.
As A Buyer
My eBay purchases included underwear,props and costumes to be used in photo shoots, a few action figures that I bought when I was younger, books, etc. I even purchased an Apple Mac Desktop computer on eBay which I still have and still works.. I have purchased many, many hats for costumes.
I have found that the sellers ship quick and pack the items properly for shipping. They are motivated to keep their positive seller ratings. With each purchase you get to rate that seller and provide a brief comment about the experience. On almost all my feedback I have been able to write "Item as described, would do business with again."
As A Seller
My eBay sales have been a mix of items. I emptied out my collection of movies that I no longer watched, and sold some action figures. I hope in the future to sell unused items and used photo shoot props and costumes.
eBay Money Back Guarantee
Three Business Days
I especially like the eBay money back guarantee.If an item doesn't arrive or is not as described, you first reach out to the seller. If the issue is not resolved after three business days, you reach out to eBay. They will respond to you within 48 hours and assist in solving the issue whether that be helping you to get the correct item or a refund.
Easy To Return An Item
If an item arrives damaged or doesn't match the description on the listing, eBay allows you to return an item even if the Seller says they do not accept returns. To return an item, you simply select the item you want to return in
your purchase history on My eBay. If the seller asks, send the item back as
soon as possible using their preferred return method. If the seller doesn’t refund your money, ask eBay to step in and help.
One Negative Issue That Was Resolved
With all my purchases I had only one mishap. I purchased a terra cotta sun with a face on it to hang on a garden wall. It arrived broken because it wasn't packed properly. The seller refunded my money.
I Enjoy Shopping On eBay
For the type of items that I normally buy, eBay has a large variety of listings. . I can find lower prices on many items. For example I was in a Halloween shop this past week looking at a policeman's costume. In the shop it sold for $45. On eBay I found it for $18.99 plus free shipping. I have purchased many pair of underwear on eBay both name-brand and generic. Some of these come from China and often sell for less than $3.00 per pair. I found feathers on eBay that I needed for certain costumes I was making.I like their two options, you can first bid on an item like in an auction and sometimes buy something very cheap. You can also use the Buy Now option if you want the item now and the Buy Now option price is acceptable.
Saving on Shipping
Mosst years I do not buy enough items to justify paying for Amazon Prime to get free shipping. The total of my shipping costs are less on eBay than paying for shipping outright on Amazon or paying for Amazon Prime. Many items are listed on eBay with free shipping.
Using PayPal to Pay on eBay
It has been easy to pay for items on eBay through Paypal. I do not have to give my credit card information to the seller. That information stays secure on PayPal. I have also used the bank account draft through eBay as well where ithe funds are pulled directly from my checking account. And of course, I use PayPal for other transactions that are not on eBay. I listed some furniture on Craig's list this past year and sold to local buyers who paid me through PayPal. The total for furniture sales was around $1,000. All I had to do was give them the email address that I have registered on PayPal. They paid me through their PayPal account. There was no handling of cash in some parking lot. It was an instant transfer in both situations and easy.
