I got ripped off by Ebay and Paypal. Lost over $400. Their guarantee is a joke. seller didn't deliver and Ebay said too bad.

Post # 4 pretty well says it like it is with ebay. I usually have ABOUT 50 items on there at any given time, so am pretty familiar with it. I will say that they do get their share of most everything, but there is no other place that I know of that you get the exposure you do there. That being said......you can't go in like a kid in a candy store & just start listing things & using every option that comes up.........It will cost you dearly. As far as their "suggested" category's, Do you go in to a GM dealership & want a Chevy, but they "suggest" that you should really buy a Caddy so you go out with a big smile & a big ol' Cadillac? I doubt it. In the end what I usually do when they have less free listings, is list only the stuff that i'm pretty sure will sell & then when they have a deal where you get bunch of listings, put the other marginal stuff on.
