Looks like it's time to pray for prayerwarrior02.

Feedback like this, "Negative feedback rating\tNo response... no item.... M.F. stole my money..... I piss on you..... :-($)" is a sign that sellers sre having problems and trust them at your own risk!

I had been wondering about this a bit, since I have never bought anything off ebay. At times, it seems like I am missing out on a lot of good stuff, but I really just can't be bothered to deal with scammers selling fake stuff, or not sending you anything at all. It all just seems like a crapshoot to me. Someone try to convince me otherwise.

I think it is a matter of buying from vendors who have a good track record or, if in doubt, post your questions here. Most of us who are eBay-thrifters have a pretty good command of legit sellers who will not sell you fake goods and who will represent products properly. Having said that, a few times I've taken chances with some of the more dodgy eBay sellers and gotten some amazing buys (like a no-more than 1 year old Oxxford sport jacket from parisvegas for $100).

Are there any experiences with the seller porto-rotondo?

My interest goes to one of his auctions...

Can anyone tell me what they think of this seller:

Is there any chance this suit is a counterfeit?

Thanks

Canali suit looks genuine but seems overpriced.

I've been registered on ebay a couple months and have made 3 purchases (a 4th was out of stock and the sale cancelled) and received 2 positive feedbacks.

I've also had successful buying transactions with a number of SF stalwarts and plan to list a few ties and maybe shoes soon on the SF.

My question: I'd like to try to sell a few collector knives & militaria on ebay, fairly high-end, probably upper $100's, but it seems to me that successful selling will be handicapped by having only 2 feedbacks.

Other than buying more and getting feedbacks would it make sense to list some less expensive items first and build my rep? Or...?

Any tips shall be most appreciated - thank you.

Honestly, ive done my share with buying and selling on ebay. now it's not worth my time.

selling - ebay fees, then paypal fees, shipping fees, etc. take away all your profit

buying - too many fakes, too many scammers, id rather go through amazon.com if anything

I have seen people selling information on eBay for 99 cents just so that they can complete some transactions and exchange positive feeback. Here is an example:
