Disadvantages: It does not really makes a difference
Fatfingers is a UK based website which claims to allow searchers to find items which have been listed for sale on Ebay, but have been misspelt.
Because of this (the fact that they have been mispelt) these items are not supposed to come up on the search engine normally available to Ebay users, and therefore attract, or should attract, lower bids.
The good thing is that the website is free to use, and quite intuitive. The main page has got a search engine and you can enter what you are looking for and misspelt links will come up. Unfortunately this is where the problem starts, because I found that some time I get returned non relevant links. In addition to this, although some description may be misspelt, the category where they have been entered is correct. As a result, they are not under bid.
I may have missed the point or benefit of this website, but I think that although they had a good idea, the result is not as good as hoped.
Summary: Not bringing up big deals
