eBay is getting pretty greedy for sellers. There now going to charge fees on your shipping charges. I sell my electronic library on eBay and I am now thinking about dropping that and just using my account for buying. One thing I do like is the prices on some of the military surplus products.
A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished. Proverbs 22:3 NKJV
It's been said, but PayPal only. It adds several layers of protection to your purchases
I buy off ebay all the time. When I do a search I check the boxes on the left side for "buy it now" and "free shipping". I only use paypal for payment. Closing in on 400 purchases and only a couple minor problems (slow shipping mainly).
Been buying and selling on e-Bay for almost 10 years. Over 5,000 transactions. Bought MANY prepper items on e-Bay. MREs, compound bow, crossbow, batteries, gun parts, surveillance items, night vision, freeze-dried food, communications equipment, etc., etc., etc.
e-Bay is the BEST place to buy and sell silver and gold coins, also.
PayPal offers buyer protection, and e-Bay has several layers of seller and buyer protection. The biggest pain in the butt for me has been unscrupulous BUYERS, not sellers. The longer you use e-Bay, the more you learn about the "little secrets" to make sure you don't get screwed over.
I had an old HP printer 1020 (black only) - my kids broke it... I had a bunch of black cartridges so picked one up on ebay
