    I've seen some cheap prices.

    Overall, have people had good or bad experiences with this?

    I think most, if not all of us have. eBay has great deals and you will usually find things cheaper on there.

    I've bought only two items from eBay, but in both cases were excellent and positive experiences. If you're new to eBay, you should obviously be cautious of who you buy from. Try to buy from top-rated and positive-feedback sellers. The trick when buying is to check the user's feedback.

    Thanks, man.

    Seemed like too good a resource to be true.

    No problem. Oh and you shouldn't worry too much about scams because you're protected through eBay's protection program. On top of that, you're also protected by Paypal. Most importantly though you should link your credit card with your Paypal account. That way, if eBay or Paypal can't recover your money, you can always issue a chargeback. So you have triple protection, no sweat.

    I get about a sixty percent success figure. Sometimes I'll end up with something damaged beyond easy repair, or where they lied about size.

    However, if you know your size and stick to NWT suits and jackets, I have good luck. The last suit I bought needs a new zipper, because I'll stand up and suddenly my crotch is on display.

    Anyhow, it's a crapshoot.

    eBay is great - here are some simple rules that I follow:

    1. Never buy from a seller with less than 100% feedback or who has a low number of feedbacks
    2. Know your size(s) and understand the product
    3. Ask a LOT of very specific questions
    4. Only buy from sellers who offer return/exchanges
    5. Only buy clothing items that are NIB, NWT, etc. (used shoes/clothing is gross!)

    I know, I have high standards.

    I used to buy and sell old bicycle parts on Ebay about 10-15 years ago. Wouldn't touch it now though. If I want counterfeits, they're usually much cheaper locally.

    I've never really bought much on Ebay but I have been selling a lot of stuff lately. Cleaning out my college wardrobe, mostly Vineyard Vines polo's, and some other random clothing garments. I mainly used it to get rid of a bunch of old electronics. For whatever reason, people are always wanting old cell phones and computers. I recently sold an Iphone 3G for like $90 and a 3GS for $150. Nice extra cash for stuff that either just sat there or I would have thrown out.
