The truth is always Ebay has all the tools they had in their power to try to avoid such problems, and there are many mechanisms to detect that you are not going to give “bait”.
First of all, it is that buyers can leave both positive and negative comments from your vendor. Moreover, the system itself will “encouraged” to do to feed the different vendors feedback on the portal. Before you buy something to someone, read the comments left on it, this will give you an accurate idea of whether you can buy or bid on your product with tranquility or if instead you should forget and keep looking for another supplier that offers so you are looking for.
There are also “Powerseller”, bidding or making purchases of this type of vendors you make sure one hundred percent that you will not have any kind of shock. The “Powerseller” are identified by the Ebay own and must meet certain requirements previous. Must have a certain volume of monthly sales (not sales, but sales of products rather) and must have more than a hundred comments from buyers in your account. Of these reviews (the number is) 98% or more has to be positive.
With these two simple considerations will give you more everything for you not to suffer any mishap at the time of purchase on Ebay.
Tricks to enhance your purchase, or your sale…
If you’re trying to buy something for Ebay, there are a number of tricks that will facilitate your purchase. First of all, when we find what we need (or interests us) is whether an auction is no more or if instead you can “buy now” available. If it is the latter, we can see that the price matches what’s on the market or that we can afford. If so, we can buy the product without more, without having to wait no wait too long.
If this is the case it is a bid simply should not bid on first. We should see how many days left until the auction is over and do it in the last moments of it. To do Ebay has advertisers who warn that a particular auction is running by sending emails to our email. When a bid is being finalized, it is common to see people interested in the same go about their “bets”, we must be clear as is the most you can afford, and most important, the most you believe the product is worth.
In the “heat of battle” we can “warm up” too much and end up paying for a product more than it’s worth. If this is the case we are interested in a used product should consult the seller on your state and ask as many pictures on it. Ebay gives us option to communicate with the seller quickly and safely.
Find out where the product is and how much you send it. It is normal for handling the pay you, you should also keep in mind that according to that country come could be “stopped” at the office of Madrid and that you were forced to pay VAT and import duties. Keep this in mind also on the expenditure. If you are a seller, makes it clear who pays for shipping and where you are willing or not to send.
Finally, commenting that there are “snipers” are automatic systems that auction. It is normal for a given auction ends at an ungodly hour or while you’re working. Both Ebay itself, as other companies offer services automatic bid. You only have to define a minimum and maximum price and the system will go bidding in the last moments of an auction to try to make yourself with the product. These kinds of services are no paid or free.
My Gadgets, an interesting tool Ebay
Ebay has recently launched a service within your site that can help us enormously when to buy or sell products on it, it is the service “My Gadgets”. This service allows us to look for a product that we have and the system shows its average value in the market. This way we can use it either to be sold something that we want to get rid, establishing an average price. Or, of course, whether we will not end up paying much more than a product really worth.
“My Gadgets” is an emerging service. At the moment it is only in the international page of Ebay, and although you can access from anywhere in the world and the prices are in US dollars. Little by little they are adding products of all categories, but are primarily oriented electronics.
Another service that is Ebay, which unfortunately (for now) is only available in the United States, is “Sell it Foward” program. When you apply this service Ebay sends home a parcel Finder where you can get all those clothes you do not use or do not need. Send (totally free) to an NGO that takes care of these clothes look their status, put a price and put up for sale by Ebay. If the garment is sold, half of what is achieved will be for you, if you do not, your clothes will be donated to the needy.
