thats why I avoid selling on eBay. Thank God for RunRyder where we can sell without fees...(at least for now =) knock on wood). Although, I probably wouldnt mind a low commission going to RunRyderChris. AMA 497715 IRCHA 3351

Been hosed twice selling stuff on ebay.

Last time I sold some computer parts and as one poster here said, people don't read the ads, and he complained it wasn't new. I was out of town when he filed that complaint and didn't get to respond to it, so ebay threatened to refund his money unless I made him happy. Which basically he extorted another discount on an already 1/3 price item.

First time buyer claimed he never recieved item even though I had tracking # that showed delivery. Paypal(before ebay took it over) took over my account and the extra $ I had in there at the time and KEPT it. Not only the amount of the "claimed not recieved" item, but I had about $150-200 extra paypal kept stating the account was frozen but any attempt I made to get it back was thwarted with red tape.

I think Ebay and paypal are a joke for protection as I got hosed as a buyer, bought a 1996 WS6 trans am that was so cobbled together bolts were falling off the motor when I got it, and the dealer had so "mis-listed" the item. When I put a claim in, ebay protection was worthless and I got jammed for huge $$ on that deal fixing what was supposed to be a clean car, lost many thousands of dollars .

All they want is their $ and pretend to care but they don't

What's the alternative to eBay?
I have sold several things on eBay and don't really notice the fee. Most items I sell are things that I would not have gotten sold otherwise. I buy 90% of my helicopters and parts, though, from eBay, so I have to say I like eBay overall.

Saying that, I would be glad to switch to another online auction if they have helicopters and parts! Anybody deal with others?

The advantage of ebay is also it's downfall - the popularity.

eBay has a lot of users, so things sell quickly. Lots of people mean lots of bids. Less popular sites allow you to get a good deal, but don't have the traffice that eBay does so it's harder to sell.

Having said that, there used to be BidBay.com and ubid.com, but I have no idea how good they are or if they even exist...
