I've sold quite a bit of hardware using Ebay. I've only had one unfortunate incident and that was a UPS shipping damage issue. Other then that, it's been pretty smooth. You just have to make sure you set the buyer parameters like not allowing buyers of certain regions or certain feedback scores. That way you can weed out most of the shady buyers.
Me too. 14 year eBay member here and perfect history...
Until last week... I've got a suspicious jerk that took 30 days to pay for an iPhone (turned him in for non-payment); he then messages me 3 weeks later saying it was stolen asking for the IMEI number - I provided it and asked if he wanted me to report it stolen to Sprint - he said no?; and, on the 30th day of the PayPal transaction, that he was 30 days late paying, the focker files a "Not as Described" dispute for WiFi not work, and for a partial
amount?!? I am dumbfounded. PayPal of course witholds the entire funds until "resolved."
I'm already preparing for that lost. PayPal and eBay doesn't care how longer you've been a member or in good standing. The buyer is always right, but I'll fight this one all the way to being destroyed. http://techcrunch.com/2012/01/04/paypal-shreds-ostensibly-rare-violin-because-it-cares/
Thank goodness I had "No returns" in my auction. Asshat. Then again, this is my first, and will be my last, cell phone I sell on eBay. Especially iPhone buyers as those guys seem very shady and exports everything.
As for video cards, I've sold several on eBay with great experiences. I find it easier, and more profitable, selling on these forums though from member to member. Like EVGA's MarketPlace where I usually list mine. You don't pay the 9% commission to eBay, though you still have to pay the 4% commission to PayPal.
Yep, that's right, you are looking at a 13% loss if you sell on eBay guys + insertion, reserved, Buy It Now fees.Edited by eduncan911 - 11/11/13 at 1:36pm
