is it safe to buy things on ebay?
Ebay has its good & bad points. I am a buyer; as well as a seller on Ebay. I pride myself on being honest and going out of my way to show my appreciation to my buyers. As the other person posted, look for great feedback score. Mine is 100%, but something else I do, is once I buy from a seller that I trust, I stick w/that person & also use word of mouth about others. Even though her f'back score dropped a little, I use a woman who goes by sellerzone & a few others. Depending on what you're looking for is the biggest thing; if you are looking for something in particular, let me know as I may have it...getting rid of a bunch of items. I had a business & was also in the entertainment field for years. Have storage units full of junk & new items as well. Will check from time to time if you are interested; don't have anything listed right now, but getting ready to post more items. User name is same as profile name. You can send me message from there if interested. Hope it helps.
Not always, there are a ton of scammers on there that post something to sell and never have the item. Look for extremely high feedback, but even those can be bought.
Sometimes...before you buy something you should check out the person ratings
