Auction , Marketplace

Buy and sell electronics, cars, fashion apparel, collectibles, sporting goods, digital cameras, baby items, coupons, and everything else on eBay. eBay is an American multinational Internet consumer-to-consumer corporation, headquartered in San Jose, California. It was founded by Pierre Omidyar in 1995, and became a notable success story of the dot-com bubble; it is now a multi-billion dollar business with operations localized in over thirty countries. The company manages eBay.com, an online auction and shopping website in which people and businesses buy and sell a broad variety of goods and services worldwide. In addition to its auction-style sellings, the website has since expanded to include "Buy It Now" standard shopping; shopping by UPC, ISBN, or other kind of SKU (via Half.com); online classified advertisements (via Kijiji or eBay Classifieds); online event ticket trading (via StubHub); online money transfers (via PayPal) and other services.

I have heard so many people say that the prices offered at ebay are comparatively less than the open market, and there are many cool things you can find and buy off from there, but something about shopping at ebay bugs me. The site itself is actually something great, but there have been so may scams here that I personally shop here.

Ebay is good to find some things cheaper than elsewhere, but a lot of the time things on Ebay are actually more expensive than elsewhere. It's fun (and addictive) to bid on useless things that you don't need, and sometimes you can find some neat stuff for good prices. From a buyer's perspective, Ebay is pretty great. From a seller's perspective, I have a few complaints. There are way too many fees and the whole process of selling is confusing and basically requires you to read a book to figure out what's going on. Even when Ebay thinks they're trying to be helpful and make things simple, they're still complicating the whole process. I sold a couple of things last month that I was under the impression had no fees, but I was billed a fee at the end of the month. For some reason things under some categories have fees, but others don't? Why? What's the difference in selling antiques and electronics? Who knows. It's pretty annoying, and if I had a better option to sell things, I would use it rather than Ebay. Ebay gets the job done, though, despite the hidden fees, and it does make it pretty easy to print shipping labels when you have to ship things, which is helpful. The seller/buyer feedback system could be improved on a lot.

I really do want to like eBay. Trust me, I do. I love the concept, I love the idea. However, during the past several years, the site has gone way down in my opinion.

Customer support is HORRIBLE, one of the worst. If you want to sell anything on there, be prepared to spend an arm and a leg just on eBay fees. Not to mention that competition is so huge on there, It's very unlikely that you will get a high amount of bids on anything.

It's no longer that easy to use; the whole process is a bit complicated as a matter of fact. Hate the integration of paypal and the fact that you can pretty much ONLY use paypal.

For these reasons, I choose to stay away.

Okay, this site does exactly what it's supposed to. I'm not arguing that. There's a reason it's been successful for this long, but that doesn't mean it's not horse shit.

There's an entire room in our house devoted to stupid crap my fiancÚ thinks she needs. Do I love her? Absolutely. Do I think we need seventeen fully-functional Furbies on a shelf talking to each other the entire goddamn night?

No. Christ no.

They're not going up in value, Jessica. They're out of the box and the one is so broken it sounds like Stephen Hawking. We need to save money for a new air conditioner, please just stop.

eBay is really good.

So I myself am a bit of a collector, I enjoy finding old coins, rocks that look like animals, and beanie babies to add to my shelves. Ebay has constantly come through for me for all of the things listed above, and for that I am extremely grateful.

With that said, a few weeks ago I bid on a chair that was listed as "haunted chair from Sweden." I've had the chair in my home for almost a full week now, and have not experienced any sort of paranormal activity. I thought one time I heard it move by itself, but it turns out two of my cats were making love on it. I was looking forward to a bit of welcomed company, and am left wanting.

Revolutions

This history podcast is the work of Mike Duncan, who wrote and narrated the epic 'History of Rome' podcast.

So far he has covered the English (very good), American (excellent) and French (very good) revolutions. All in lots of detail, from the 'seeds of change' that led up to th...

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
