    Unhappy

    Is ebay good or bad?
    I can make money (bid people!)
    I can spend money. Lots of money. More money then I have.
    I can find iems I want/need.
    I can find out about orchids. I can buy orchids for cheap. I can sell orchids.
    I can find out about CPs. I can.... CPs. I can ... CPs.

    So what's your opinion on ebay?

    i use it alot, found lots of good stuff at a decent price. im leary of buying high dollar soft ware at a fraction on there. Darla got ripped off once because of it. but ive bought plants, faceted gemstones, gemstone rough, books, magazines........all kinds of stuff and never had any problems. Darla was trying to get some $800 soft ware for $125, not really surprised she got jipped.

    Well I am currently getting some orchids. I don't think that vase is going to sell. Although I was listing it for my mother. Oh well I hope my other items sell.

    We sold and bought a lot of camera equipment when we made the switch to Canon & digital. I've bought several international CD's lately for my wife too. I'd like to say we haven't done a whole lot there, but our rating is ~70 and that's a good bit of activity.

    I really like Ebay.I haven't had any bad experiences yet,but I only buy plants from this one nursery here in Canada.Just 2 days ago I bought an Orchid for $3.25C but originally it's $24.99! You gotta be careful tho.*Niki* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Ebay is good because you can sell items to a specific market the world over. You can also buy items from everywhere and end up spending every dime on there!

    Plants:
    Be warned that most overseas Nep and Orchid dealers on ebay are not working legal (I.e. no paperwork is supplied with plants, seeds, etc) so it's best that you do not attempt any such purchases outside your country of origin unless you can verify the seller knows what they're doing concerning shipping these plants internationally (tell them to send you a scan of their up to date export permit & number). One member of the nep forum got burned really bad by an overseas ebay deal on some "cheap" Neps even though he had his import paperwork correct he got nailed for the shippers folly.

    As far as anything else like toys, videos, books, software, teeshirts, skateboards, etc, it helps to pay attention to the sellers feedback. I think twice about bidding if they have anything less than 97% positive responses overall. If a seller hides their feedback (which you can do), everyone ought to know what that means![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
