Use to be good but I was subject to fraud from a seller
I purchased some shoes online from a seller. The next day she sent me an email indicating I had received a refund but the card no on the refund wasn't my card. I did not authorize any refund. Seller did not return my communication. I reported the seller to EBay 3 days ago and they have no action against the seller and have allowed her to relist the same item again. My advice deal with the sellers that have got plenty of reviews and have being a seller for a number of years. This was clearly a case of fraud and Ebay dosnt care
Good for buying, bad for selling, take your postage money
Ebay take over 10% of the postage that is charged, but do not allow you to add this on to the price so you are covered. This means all items have extra $ on them, so multiple purchased and combined prices are all being overcharged, because ebay does not know how to properly charge postage
Simply best prices ????
Please don't go into the first simplybestprices page on EBAY and buy your item , dig a bit deeper a few more pages of the site and you will find the same item up to a big 40% cheaper ,tried to contact be email No Reply have organised a return.Beware this is reprehensible stuff ,and trying to get a resolution is so hard.

Simplybestprices is a Scam/Bank
If you buy off the EBay store 'SimplyBestPrices' they take your money and say they have sent your item. But then the emails start coming to your private email account outside of EBay which is against EBay's policy. 'Sorry we don't have your item in stock please cancel the transaction in EBay' First of all, if an EBay seller doesn't have your item, they have to cancel the transaction and refund your money, but this seller gets around it by asking the buyer to cancel so they get the demerit for cancelling instead of the seller getting penalised. ...So I, the buyer complain to EBay and they do nothing and say 'just lodge an item not recieved in 6 weeks time' in the meantime, 'simplybestprices' are making $$$$ interest of your money sitting in their bank account. And they keep sending email after email privately to you outside of EBay harassing you telling you to cancel the order which they know you can't because the time frame to cancel has passed and they have told EBay that they sent you the item. An item which they never had to begin with! This is one of the worst scams I have ever come across and EBay allows their buyers to be robbed blind by this seller. Only an evil, Satanist could have thought this up! I have lost my money to SimplyBestPrices for not the first time and EBay does nothing. I will have to approach the Australian Federal Police to assist me with the harassing emails they keep sending me demanding I cancel the sale, even though I purchased from them an item they said they had in stock which they never had. They have kept my money too! But they have told EBay that they sent the item. 5 weeks later, they've made double in interest what I paid and all I received was harassment from them weekly in return.
eBay Plus Deals are Scam worthy.
I’m just commenting on the eBay plus “daily deals” to help Someone else save time. I finally!!! After two weeks of trying multiple times a day clicked an ebay plus listing fast enough to get through before they were gone. Clicked buy it now then added coupon code. After entering the code I get a message “sorry buyer doesn’t have that quantity”. This is ridiculous and maddening and I will cancel ebay plus. Im happy to know there are limited quantity released each time and you have to keep trying. Fair enough. HOWEVER One quantity of the item should be reserved once you click buy it now and give you time enough to enter the coupon and check out. Every other ebay sale buy it now commits you to buy and you have time to checkout!!!
Ebay = selfish and untrustworthy
My experience with eBay has been horrible, that’s why I closed off my account and my husbands because I would never want to use their platform or recommend it to any of my family or friends
I dont even think they care about anyone expect their profits, which is the reason why I’ve decided to choose Amazon Over them
We're in agreement with the negative reviews here as well..
Nothing but total concurrence with all other unfavorable eBay opinions posted here. eBay is still allowing a dodgy seller(unitedltyltd)to on-sell returned faulty phones with them. And doesn't seem all that concerned for the buyer parting with there hard earnt money. So we have ended our accounts with eBay.
Product not delivered , no refund
Product was not delivered for over a month, when I requested refund seller posted the delivery tracking number . The delivery company returned the item back to seller .
When I appealed to ebay , they did not check and cancelled the appeal immediately .
Bad customer care and system is not designed to make sellers disciplined and fool customer .
ebay are by far the worse place to buy from
They are unable to fix their own mistakes and are happy to let you explain the same thing over and over,they will empathize with you with the use of certain words but won't fix a problem that they have caused.I am DONE with this the crappiest of shopping sites.Go ELSEWHERE if you can

Seller luckygifts4you sells garbage-Very poor quality
Purchased a 2Pcs Double Action Spring Hinge Saloon Cafe Door Swing Western Door 3''/4''/5'' from luckygifts4you, a eBay seller and had a tradesman install the hinges on a cafe door. He did everything in his power to get the door to align when shut and couldn't. He spent at least 2 hours adjusting the spring tension but the spring was made of junk metal and would bend whenever the door was opened, then shut.
He proved a point by going to a hardware store Bunnings and purchased the same type of spring hinge.
It took him 5 minutes to install and ...

Ebay GST refund
I have bought a item from HK through Ebay and it has been lost. The seller has offered to refund the money. All OK until the amount was agreed on.It seems the seller has a price and ebay or paypal pay them that price "BUT" ebay or paypal add on the GST. when the seller refunds he/she only refunds the money "HE" received so the buyer is out of pocket the GST. A real scam. On top of that you try and contact Ebay. It is easier to buy a illegal gun on line than it is to put in this complaint. If Ebay is looking the order way 18-04975-59074. BUYERS BEWARE
eBay plus unlawful charges
I signed up for one month free eBay plus, when time came I found fees withdrawn from my account without prior notice. I didn’t want renewal To proceed and same time forgot to stop it since no email sent to my inbox. Later I found on the app because I’m new to it that they sent emails to the app. Never had issues with eBay but they should be clearer when it comes to charges
Appalling handling of a delayed sent item
I sent an item to the US which I sold on Ebay. Luckely I paid extra for a tracking number. Delivery was considerably delayed due to Covid 19, especially in the US. Regardless of my tracking proving the item was sent, but held by custom for a coming delivery, Ebay refunded the buyer without contacting me first and closed the case in spite of tracking device showing the item has now been delivered. Unacceptable handling of the situation. Shame on you EBAY US!
I usually have great experiences when buying things online but unfortunately I can't say this about Ebay. I ordered a phone case on the 19th of May and said it would arrive between the 1st-15th of June. It's now the 19th and still haven't received what I ordered. Every time I message them, they say 'its coming or should we send it again?' I understand some packages take time to arrive but I didn't think I'd have to wait three weeks for a simple package. Just overall very disappointed and upset with Ebay and won't go through this company again.
Ebay is abandoning fairness
I tried to chat with eBay themselves about it. Chat was possible in the past. However, there is now an item number required to chat to them at all - and I had question about their latest mail regarding "changed privacy". Since eBay cannot be talked to directly anymore, I will write my concerns here openly:
1. Ebay changing listings against the sellers wishes:
Recently my wife managed somehow to contact them. It was about eBay is changing my wife's listings without her agreement into allowing "Make an offer". She chatted with a paid pawn, who's...

Questions & Answers
Why is E-Bay having double standards with Sanitisers? Just type sanitizers into the search field and there may for sale. How come we are not allowed to sell on E-Bay. This is double standards by Ebay.
It's to prevent price gouging. What happened in Australia was people were buying up all the face masks, toilet paper and hand sanitizers from the shops and then selling them online at super inflated prices to take advantage of the Covid19 crisis and make a huge profit.
The hoarding of products by certain groups of people meant that there were no products left for everyday people who needed the products to use - not to sell online and make a profit off. Unfortunately the greedy people ruined it for other sellers who genuinely wanted to sell their products on EBay at regular prices. After the crisis ends, I think EBay will allow sanitizers to be sold on their platform again although I don't know for sure. If Ebay is allowing some of their big sellers to sell hand sanitizers but not little sellers then that is obviously very unfair and you could challenge their decision by complaining to your countries consumer affairs department.
