“WARNING TO ALL EBAY USERS”

Written on: 06/09/2021 by poppey (23 reviews written)

I recently placed an item on Ebay for sale. After some time I received an offer, which I declined. I then received a second offer, also declined. I then received notification from Ebay that my item had sold and that the money, less fees, had been sent to my account. Also, Ebay sent me an address label. When I clicked on the link to the label, I was informed there was a variation in the address. I contacted the supposed purchaser, through Ebay. No response. I contacted Ebay Chat, who suggested… Read Full Review

“After 21 years with eBay and a 100%…”

Written on: 21/05/2020 by sleeves (10 reviews written)

After 21 years with eBay and a 100% Feedback I finally called it a day. Beginning of march 2020 I purchased 3 polo shirts from a seller called "Clothing Shed" When they arrived one of the shirts was ingrained with dirt, so i sent it back. After a sort period (week) I asked for my refund and they told me they had sent a replacement (allegedly) which never appeared. They wanted to contact royal mail to find what happened to it. I agreed.This was all part of their plan to over run the eBay… Read Full Review

“Searching for treasure”

Written on: 10/10/2019 by MDUK2019 (5 reviews written)

I do love ebay. I have found some wonderfully unique pieces of furniture and vintage clothing on the site - an ercol coffee table and rocking chair, huge brass lamps, ceramics from St. Ives, all at reasonable prices. It may take some searching, but that's part of the fun… Read Full Review

“Risky way to buy.”

Written on: 05/09/2019 by shass (16 reviews written)

With countless thousands of products available, it seems a good place to buy. However, be aware that despite their pompous sounding safe to buy and buyer protection, there is actually neither. Any so called protection expires after thirty days... so the sellers string you along for that long by promising refunds that never arrive or replacements that don't arrive either. Any dispute and Ebay ALWAYS find in favour of their power sellers... they are the ones who pay big fees, you are a worthless… Read Full Review

“eBay promises are not true.”

Written on: 23/03/2019 by 123dhills (33 reviews written)

Over the years of buying items from eBay has been a disaster. They tell you to buy with confidence and if anything goes wrong the will help you out with problems from the seller. If only. Just to name a few. Desktop PC got up one morning I couldn't boot in, this was hardly used as my laptop was my main computer, kept asking the company for a telephone number and then told by eBay they have sent the phone number so why was I keep asking for it? Doro mobile phone developed a fault, I was told if… Read Full Review

“Ebay taking away voucher codes which are still valid”

Written on: 03/11/2018 by kmNorth351 (1 review written)

The worst company on the internet. Gave me an offer to sell three items, and get £5 back for each. They applied the vouchers on my account, stupidly I forgot to print screen this, which I usually do (knowing they take vouchers off your account.) So I have the vouchers in my account, they were there last night. This morning when about to buy an expensive table saw with one voucher, and something else with the other voucher, (as they came in two separate vouchers) I find eBay have removed… Read Full Review

“Used to be great - now increasingly not”

Written on: 09/05/2018 by Deon38 (1 review written)

2003 - 2018 so a long time ebay user. From the beginning, when it was wonderful, simple and good value to use, it has over the space of those 15 years become increasingly obstructive to use and - in tandem with Paypal - become absolutely extortionate as a seller with fees - along with scant seller protection against scam buyers. Terrible site, terrible customer service. … Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2018 by wilko50 (32 reviews written)

When EBAY started it was quite good, but the crim`s have become wise to being able to easily ripping people off!. I brought a pair of safety shoes which fell apart after a week, the seller ignored any attempt at contact. Also people will by stuff, damage it and say it arrived damaged ( lie`s). The company as a whole is not focused towards customer service and the staff you speak to are often totally useless ( if they can understand English that is ) A horrible criminal set up , Amazon is way… Read Full Review

“Digraceful treatment of a loyal user”

Written on: 08/11/2017 by Mikesears (9 reviews written)

I have used Ebay since 2003 and have 100% positive feedback on over 1250 transactions, Ebay have always rated me as above average. I wanted to bid on a item but wanted to see it first, Ebay intercepted my private email to the seller which asked for details of where I could view. As Ebay eavesdrops on private emails between seller and buyer I have now had my "Valued" account restricted. Ebay have introduced American styled marketing with all of it's bullying and greed, there is no place for… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/01/2018

I know exactly how you feel. I have been screwed by ebay and paypal both as a buyer, and a seller. i've had two holds put on my account over the past few years - both for no good reason. I've had a bad buyer who left me inaccurate and unfair negative feedback get away with leaving it there, ebay refused to remove it even though i had no other complaints and had proof buyer was lying. Then they INSTANTLY removed feedback I left for a dodgy seller who took my property and ebay will do nothing to help me get it back. i've had it with them. not worth the grief, ebay.

“Ebay - turned 'Rogue Trader'.”

Written on: 23/12/2016 by caveatemptor1955 (9 reviews written)

Since the enhanced presence of ' Paypal' as part of Ebay, it has gone badly off the rails. My experience of 13 October 2016, is of winning a Brother word processor, which was arranged to be delivered on Monday 24 October 2016. This was by Royal Mail, who did not attempt delivery on that day. However, did so the next day when I was out. Leaving a 'you were out card', as per the modus operandi of this outfit. Who ignored a notice posted near door entry buzzer. The Ebay seller disclaimed any… Read Full Review

few years back ebay and its sellers are doing fairly. Now a days i am doubting that ebay is supporting the sellers silently. coz, if u ordered some items, it doesn't come, even after the last date. after going for the refund and all other process, you get the money back. but in all this 20 days to 1 month the sellers rolling this money for there business. ebay is silently supporting that. otherwise ebay is not banning such sellers. why not accepting negative comments. i order items ofr giving… Read Full Review

Awful website, avoid bad for sellers and buyers. If your a seller be prepared for the buyers who try to rip you off. If your a buyer be prepared to be ripped off with fake items. Watch out for extremely high fees and fees on postage charge! No profit for sellers only ebay gains. And sticks up for the buyers that tricks you. You get left with no items and have to pay buyer back if they want to trick you. Avoid unless you like hassle… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/05/2016 by jasoncooke93 (60 reviews written)

I paid £65 for Nike Air Max 90 Essential from a seller called slawek.077 and when delivered the box just looked a bit odd. I bent the shoe, and it creased too easily - it wasn't even leather... Here is how to spot a Fake Nike Air Max trainer on eBay and what to do about it. Received a fake pair of Nike Air Max 90 Essential today from eBay. Confirmed Fake by JD sports. So that's my first tip, go and compare with a genuine product in store. Failing that look at a genuine image online. I… Read Full Review

“Appalling when dealing with sellers. ”

Written on: 21/03/2016 by Mlipman4 (7 reviews written)

After proving that an item I sold had been sent to the correct address and had been signed by the buyer Ebay still gave the buyer a full refund!! I now have no money or the item. This is not the first time I've had dealings with Ebay customer service and once again as a seller you are pure dog dirt. A while back they removed the ability to leave negative feedback on bad buyers so there is even more risk for a seller. I've had enough of eBay and their sharp practices and will no longer sell… Read Full Review

I kept persisting and for some reason they repaid me. I'll never sell anything with them again though. Not sure Trading Standards would be much help either. I won't have been the first one to complain and it seems that eBay are still giving extremely poor service.

I can relate to everything you have stated.I am absolutely disgusted with the way I have been treated by E-Bay.I have sold many Items in the Past,I have had a few buyers attempt to pull a fast one on me,In E-Bays favour they did find in my favour and I had my money returned.The Latest dealing I have had with E-Bay concerns a seller who is blatantly selling Items on a 3 for 4 offer which does not exist.I complained to E-Bay about it and I have now been suspended for 30 days due to an angry E-Mail I sent to the Seller.I paid over £40.00 for the Items so yes I was angry.I have received my money back but the Punishment I believe is too Harsh.The seller is still advertising their offers which do not exist.Their Listing is Misleading and E-Bay Refuses to acknowledge my original complaint I made and refused to take action.I cant wait for the day I can finally close my account down for good.

Ebay seem to operate completely separate to any legal trading laws. Why they've never been taken to task on Watchdog or consumer sites is a mystery to me.

Bought a pair of 501's.......the worst fakes ever.......rough material, dodgy stitching, hem had been altered to my length (badly) unwearable......in the advert there was no mention of import tax, so I also had to pay an extra £30 to hmrc before I could get them.....which put the price up to what I'd expect to pay for genuine ones at any of my local shops. How do Levi's and eBay let them get away with it… Read Full Review

“Great site, great buyer protection!”

Written on: 16/11/2015 by Bastet2015 (24 reviews written)

I've used eBay for just over 11 years, in that time I've accrued almost 500 feedback, almost all of that through buying goods. I seldom sell. I've never had an issue with selling an item, and I've seldom had issues with buying items. Usually, when I have an issue with buying an item (it's not as described, it's damaged, it's worse condition than stated, or it never arrives etc.) I usually go through PayPal to log a dispute. On this occasion, without realising (maybe because they're… Read Full Review
