“Digraceful treatment of a loyal user”

Written on: 08/11/2017 by Mikesears (8 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

“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

Written on: 30/11/2016 by LukaMunoz57 (1 review written)

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

“How to Spot Fake Nike Air Max 90 on Ebay...”

Written on: 10/05/2016 by jasoncooke93 (58 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

Trading Standards. That is what they are there for. Don't lie down, fight back against this monster.

Written on: 10/05/2016

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.

Written on: 02/12/2016

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.

Yes I agree,I am absolutely disgusted by the Treatment I have received by EBULLY.I have been suspended for 30 days due to an angry Message I sent to another seller who was attempting to rip me off.I am losing business,I have a lot of Christmas Stock I was hoping to sell.To make matters worse,when I finally got through over the Phone to speak to someone I was openly mocked and ridiculed over the Phone.I was then told to send a Letter by snail mail to the Legal Department Based in the USA to complain if I am not happy with the EBully Have handled this.

“Galindas boutique.”

Written on: 28/01/2016 by BDV7161 (1 review written)

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

Love eBay but had the misfortune of needing support. Unable to email directly, had to explain my issue each time I called, in the end I just gave up as the staff seemed clueless. They don't seem to record anything or have staff trained up to any level beyond the real basics anyone on the street could tell you… Read Full Review

“eBay Never Again! Does Not Protect Customers!”

Decided to try purchasing as a 'Visitor' (guest) to eBay buying a one off item a mattress from 'Sleep King' (Yorkshire UK) and found it was Not as described. 1. The so called memory foam was ONLY on one side. 2. It Did Not carry the name on the mattress as advertised. 3. the Buttons used had sharp plastic ties that were sharp and painfully and could create injury when laid on. 4. Poor Quality... etc. Under the Sale of Good act, Distant selling legislation one might hope for help from eBay… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2015 by StopPoorService (1 review written)

Their is so much wrong and bad with ebay that is imposable to list all. Ebays fees for selling are ridiculous and expensive for private sellers. When you take into account the unacceptable fees they charge on the postage, it all adds up. Items take ages to sell but when you do sell, hardly wroth it after all the fees have been taken off. Ebay is incredibly buggy and always has some kind of error or glitches that effects the website on a daily biases. This is from searching to your ebay… Read Full Review

“Forums are run by a gang of spiteful weirdos”

Written on: 09/04/2015 by 383McCleary (1 review written)

The so called 'help' forums are patrolled by a collective of pompous victor meldrew/billy no mates menopausal singletons. These self imposed 'experts' seemingly have time to stalk the forums 24/7 (whilst running their successful ebay empires of course) preying on unsuspecting members with an unpleasant bloodlust! Every aspect of their selling account gets investigated and critisized and they always accuse people of running business and defrauding the HMRC!

This just emphasises the fact that some micro businesses on ebay (not actually registered as businesses) are run by freak-a-zoids. They don't have a real job and just sell tat on eBay. The guys that give a lot of angst and spite on the forum are just that, small sellers, that sell a bit and talk pants on the forum at any opportunity. Don't fight back, just ignore - best strategy.
