Ebay like any other company has positives and negatives. I sell cosmetics on ebay and have a business account even though i am not really a business but ebay tell me i have to be! Ebay allows personal and business sellers to sell their goods to the world basically and there is very little that you will not find on ebay!
Ebay has changed dramatically since i made my first purchase nearly 4years ago. Sellers can no longer leave negative feedback for buyers now which is good in a way but incredibly unfair if a buyer mucks you about. Last year ebay introduced a star rating system where buyers could rate the seller up to 5 stars on communication, item as described, dispatch time and postage and packaging costs. This gives buyers a good view of what sort of service they will likely receive. Unfortuantely it has been known that some buyers click away and dont actually consider the service they have received. This is unfair as your ratings can drop dramatically and it puts a total downer on selling.
The main issue i have with ebay is the cost of fees, if you are a business and list an item at 99p they will charge you 10p to list, 10p if it sells for this price and then you have a deduction from paypal so really it isnt worth it for 99p in that sense.
Ebay is fantastic but picking up some really good bargains. Auctions are great fun but some people go daft and end up paying more than an items actually worth in the shops. If you know where to look, a buy it now price may be a bargain for you.
I would recommend ebay just be careful
Summary: I love ebay..im addicted!
