Ebay is a site I have been using for some while now, it is a really great place where you can pick up some great deals and sell some of your old items.
I used to really enjoy selling on ebay and watching my items get a bid, however recently because of the changed format it has not been so enjoyable. They also take a hefty price out of the final price that it sold for, never mind the paypal fees and the others you have to pay. I am pretty sure that they have also made it compulsury that all sellers must have paypal (just another thing for more money).
Saying all this I do find it very simple to sell your item, it is easy to navigate around and all you have to do it to type in what your item is, it'll find it and then you fill in all the details in the highlighted fields.
It is best to be as honest as you can in listings as to avoid people wanting returns or bad feedback.
It is much easier to buy. Once you have an account you can simply bid on what you want and cross your fingers that you win! The first couple of times I reccomend that you put your bid in a bit earlier so that you have time to confirm, especially if you are unsure on what you are doing.
You ca pick up some real bargains now on ebay, with both new and old items, especially if you look out for common spelling mistakes which means that less people can find the item and the more likely it is to be cheaper!
Ebay is generally a good place to shop, however some people do charge way too much for postage, which can add a lot to the overall price.
Since I have joined ebay a couple of years ago I would not say that it has got better, but in fact worst, if it isn't for the continual increase in price then it is the fact that sellers can no longer leave neutral or negative feedback.
I would still reccomend this website, however it could do with a few improvements and for the costs to go down!
Summary: Has got worse since I first joined
