Postby *KaTe* » Mon Jun 18, 2007 5:25 pm

So who loves Ebay? :D I have been using ebay for over a year now and love it. I hardly go shopping at all anymore, I seem to be buying most things online!

So what does everybody buy online? How many feedbacks do you have?

I'm always on the look out for cool jewellery from the uk and Usa...
I also get lots of handmade clothes...lotsa sport goods,personalised things etc etc.

Im up to 147 feedbacks! He he!

i think i have about 26 lol. i dont spend a lot on there because i figure that if something looks cheap i can get it at the shops and not have to spend so much on postage. some ppls postage charges are ridiculous! i tend to buy things which are hard to find or i havent seen around like dvds and and some scrapbooking stuff is cheap. ive sold a thing or two on there before and its not worth it because ppl have stuffed me around in the past and then you have to pay ebay a certain amount.

but i think its a good idea ebay

Yeah I agree Kate with the shopping around thang...You definately have to know your prices on certain things otherwise you do get stung with postage costs...

I just love the fact I can buy unique handmade jewellery from overseas...and know that no 1 else will have the same things as me :D And I've also found I can get heaps of awesome Hello Kitty stuff online as well!

Its a shame you got stuffed around when you tried to sell things, I've heard some horror stories from some people! I'm lucky I've only ever had one drama, and I got a refund through paypal so it was all good!

My step dad sells mobile phones allllll the time on ebay, and makes a bit of a profit on the side. A guy at my work was telling me a friend of his makes around $500-$700 a week through ebay, I'd love that!

I just love buying things online...saves me going out and it gets delivered straight to my door :D

yeah handmade jewellery and things like that are great buys on ebay. :)

a friend of mine sells things on there all the time. she sold her brand new louis vuitton bag on there and the girl who rbought it (for about $770) claimed it wasnt authentic even though my friend said in her auction what the unique code thing was and how you can check the authenticity and my friend was investigated by ebay because of it. so much hassle.

but yeah the postage side of things sucks!

I am addicted to EBAY!! I have made about 40 transactions - mostly clothes for my daughters, CD's, my eldest loves Mary Kate and Ashley so I got her so much stuff off of it for her - I LOVE IT. I only had one bad transaction - I complained to EBAY and it got sorted out quickly.

Hey SassyGirl I've noticed ebay is great for little kiddie clothes...omg reminds me the other night I was bored and was looked through the "weird" section, and found some hilarious things. I seen a little t shirt for a baby with "I was made for the baby bonus!" Made me chuckle, gotta have a sense of humor with things like that lol!

LOL ........ I love buying clothes on there for them - and most of what I buy is either new or only been worn a couple of times. As I said one daughter loves MK & A (style wise not weight wise!!) and the other loves Avril Lavigne and Hillary Duff. You get the clothes really cheap.

I just went back to check to see what the price was up to and Ebay must have deleted it.. It says:
This listing (110140244962) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.
If the listing was removed by eBay, consider it cancelled. Note: Listings that have ended more than 90 days ago will no longer appear on eBay.

It was up to 16,000,000 last i looked with 28 bids :lol:

He he he ppl sell some crazy stuff online! I agree YummyMummy, I love shopping at markets as well. I guess Im just over the busy shopping centres, so markets and online is the way I seem to be going lately anyway!

I love craft markets, really want to start going to some more. Also theres a hippy market about an hour from me which is meant to be fantastic!
