Beware of this company that sells on Ebay, they don't tell you that they make these mats to order which takes time. When they say the shipped it and in fact they then say the have not and you end up going back and forth with emails to the point you just don't want to do business with them and they refuse to return funds even though item was never received.

Tip for consumers: buy from someone elseAsk BB about eBay
They have the buy back guarantee and if you dont receive something you contact the seller and they will make it right, or ebay will intervene if you have further issues. But all their sellers strive to go for that 5 star rating, so I am very happy with my buying from them, also they have alot of good prices too
I bought an expensive commercial fryer that the seller posted "new" but scratch and den. I paid 300.00 for freight shipping, when it arrived, I had to hire 2 guys to move it inside my store and unwrapped it.
It turned out the item was used, I asked Ebay what is my right to return it to the seller . Ebay said I have to put that fryer back to it original wrap on a pallet as I received and ship back to the seller as a returned item .
If I choose to ship the fryer back to the seller, I will lose: 300.00 ( shipping to my place ) 100.00 ( hired 2 guys ) to unwrapped it, another 100.00 to hire them to put it back to its original package, and another 300.00 for shipping to return to the seller.
Ebay said they could only get the money I paid for the fryer, they are not responsible for the above 800.00 and the seller will not reimburse me for those expenses either.
I write this review for your information, the seller on Ebay could sell you anything and you will be a victim , my story tells it all !
Tip for consumers: Look at the pictures, they claimed it a "new fryer" ! You have no protection at all !Ask Lan about eBay
If you guys r planning to shop online then plz opting eBay will be the worst decision. I ordered a product online which I didn't find good as claimed online so I tried to return it. But the site shows that I didn't shop any product from their site...
So I will suggest u not to go for eBay instead. U cn go for jabong, flipkart, fashionandyou which provide excellent after sale assistance.
I ordered a product and when it arrived it was clearly a counterfeit. They advertised the branded name but when it arrived it was a copy of the product which had a similar name on the box. I reported it to ebay. Took months to get the refund and ebay are still allowing that seller to sell the fake items under the real branded name. Shame on you ebay
It's been the third time in 3 weeks I have been ripped off from Ebay sellers..
First Purchased iphone 6 seller robbed all his customers got refunded from eBay.
Second bought iphone again the seller has not posted and claims he has posted via FedEx and there is not tracking number.
Third order a iphone again the seller has Sent out an empty box.
What a disgrace
I have bought some items on ebay, and noticed the buyer has all the protection on this site. I sold one item on this site, and I was told I will receive my money 30 days after the delivery date. EBay wants their money from the sale immediately and I still have not received the money from my sale. Your better off selling your items to a pawn shop. It would be safer for the seller at that point. I personally am going to put my stuff back in the closet, this way I still have my items and didn'the lose something to a thief! Good luck
I recently checked up on the customers that did not pay for the items I had listed. I only checked the ones that I opened a case on. After looking I found out there was no mention of unpaid items. I once talked with an ebay representative and they told me if a customer didn't pay it would be noted on their account. I isn't right that once we wait the 2 business days the customer has to pay and the 4 business days they have to respond to a case that is opened for non-payment could wind up being almost 2 weeks that our inventory is tied up and not selling since weekends and holidays don't count. WAKE UP EBAY! Without sellers there is no buyers. Also, the fact that there is no complaint department with ebay online is cowardly.
I will never sell Or ever buy From EBAY again. I have been a member since December,26 1998. They are scum. I am absolutely against the way they do business. They constantly change the rules, you can never depend on EBAY to back up their sellers. They are after the almighty dollar and their sellers can go to the devil. I'm a very disappointed X EBAYER!!
we filed for dispute for 4 fake soaps that were sold to us 3 wks ago. seller pinkbellaworld refused return for refund. ebay adjudicator ruled in seller's favour denying us returning the remaining 3 soaps (for refund) that we never touched. technicality upon which they based their ruling: IF YOU USE 1 OF THE LOT, YOU CANNOT RETURN THE REST EVEN IF THEY ARE COUNTERFEIT BEAUTY ITEMS, and even IF THEY ARE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED, SELF-CONTAINED AND SEPARATELY BOXED as our soaps were. (ours was NOT a case equivalent to one half used fake perfume or shampoo or a1970 bottled french wine that was half consumed/used and then discovered to be fake and the buyer asked for a refund for what's left in the bottle) Basically, the ruling sent a message to this as well as to other sellers: you can continue and are welcome to sell fake beauty items with no penalty whatsoever. even AFTER we reported the said listing to ebay, the fake soaps 181552138516 are still being up for sale by the same seller pinkbellaworld. we found a few threads on community page that many buyers were denied counterfeit claims in various cases. the 40 minute telephone conversation with ebay consisted mostly of the appeal rep's (Nathan) monologue repeating himself and at times interrupting our input: Case closed, I will hear no more of anything you have to add or say. furthermore our feedback was removed when we pointed out that the soaps were fake, just because the dispute was ruled in seller's favour.
Always a great place to look to compare prices if you know exactly what you're looking for. Always check the sellers feedback first though as there are some unfair/dishonest people out there.
Overall though, the site is easy to use and if you do have problems, eBay are quick to help and resolve.
Another FrontlinePlus for Cats fraud. Shipped what looks like genuine FrontlinePlus for Cats outer box, but when opened it was an obvious fake. Lot number on the inner 3 pack did not match the outer box (dead giveaway). Also the package says its for the USA, but it is not USA Frontline, for these reasons: FrontlinePlus internal 3-pack in the US has fl. oz. and not ml. The inner package is dated, US packages are not dated. Also the inner 3-pack has orange stripes on it, US packages do not. Avoid buying from this seller!
The *only* good thing about this seller was that they sent me a return postage envelope and they refunded my money after I returned it.
eBay cheated me out of funds earned, and because of their system failure prevented me from accessing my account, for over a month, and failed to respond to my request for assistance. When they finally responded, after a month, they said they would not correct this situation. They ripped off a customer intentionally and without a business conscious.
Bought a phone that had a valid MEID with Republic Wireless. When I went to activate the phone it was now registered with Boost Mobile, The seller did display the MEID on ebay. Got stuck with a phone that can not be activated except as a prepaid. eBay furthermore protected the ratings of EVERDEAL1 froma negative review by removing it.
There is no question that money can be saved using eBay. I bought a fair number of replacement belts for one of my knife sharpeners and saved a significant % in so doing. I've ordered too many from one source that only allows 4 or 5 boxes of belts every 10 days. However, anything other than brand new and I would go elsewhere to purchase such as Amazon.com. They truly back up all of their sales. I've had some bad luck buying refurbished or damaged goods from Amazon but they have always come through on their gaurantee's. I did make 1 purchase through eBay where the seller's account was compromised and eBay reimbursed me.
Don't like pay fees at the end of the month cause I rather if they just take fees after sale not wait until it gets to big number sum and then am like wooa is this really fees but yeah also be careful when buying from argos on ebay.because it's not actually argos that it's argos. ......well I don't actually care ......not shopping on eBay
I placed an order with an updates shipping address to my new address, however, this was shipped to my old address. I received no response fro the seller so I then called Ebay. I spent several minutes arguing with a customer service representative as to when the address was changed. Multiple times I told her it was prior to placing the order and did not know it went to the old address until the confirmation email was received. She refused to accept the fact that this was an Ebay issue and kept placing the blame on me. There is a reason I changed the address prior to placing the order...so I would actually get the item! Why can't a business just say technology is not perfect, let's see what I can do to make this right. It's not rocket science people. Ugh!!
Purchased a computer from this guys eBay site on Saturday October 10, 2015, purchasing it thru my paypal account. On Monday the 12th, got an email from him and paypal saying he canceled the deal because it was "out of stock". A check on the item showed it had already been relisted for $70 more! I complained to the vendor,but he wouldn't acknowledge my complaint. After the waiting period passed, I put a negative review about the guy and he finally responded yesterday by offering to make good on the sale if I'd remove the bad review. When I asked him to give me some specifics on the offer, he didn't reply and this morning when I asked him again about it, he said the negative review had been deleted by eBay and to "have a nice day". I called eBay customer service and they looked into my complaint and agreed that he did in fact sell it to me and then cancelled and relisted the item for $70 more. They are now conducting an audit of this guys dealings and said they would most likely put some sort of "sanction" on him over it.
Think twice before dealing with this guy. He's obviously not trust-able.
It's the first place I go when I am looking for something.i feel like I get a pretty good deal most of the time. If something isn't right you have the eBay guarantee to make it right or your money back. Can't ask for more than that. Amazon ain't bad either.
I been with Ebay for 3 years now as a buyer. My advice as a buyer, and as a seller too, would be to do your homework on the person you want to bid or buy from, sell to.. By what I mean by homework is, look at percentage number next to there name, this tells you out of 100 percent what they measure up to. Look at what other customers say about them. I have followed this rule, and only only 2 bad experiences in which Ebay compensated me. My personal rule, I do not deal with anyone with a lower than 99 percent!
Have had good deals from ebay but was totally defrauded by a seller. Product was so bad I could not even donate it, nothing like the picture on the invoice. Ebay let the seller do this and evidently I was not the first person to be cheated by this seller. Will not purchase from ebay again.
I love eBay as a buyer but absolutely hate it as a seller. I've sold on eBay for a few years. Not anymore. Fees are too high, cannot leave negative feedback for $#*!tyy buyers and no seller protection against fraudulent buyers. But as a buyer there are some good deals to be had as long as you don't get into an emotional bidding war. Winner always loses. All reviews are true. Depending on which side of the line your on.
I called eBay to appeal an unfair bad feedback. She and other reps laughed at me! She was slurring her words saying "there's nothing we can do"...laughing... not to mention her giggling preppy fake voice! At first, she said, "Hi how are you?" I said "could be better".. she laughed, "aw that's not what I like to hear." Terrible service! Called again, different girl (sounded new)... she told me "we always side with the buyers"! Finally a rep admitted it! eBay will NEVER help it's sellers! They are all about money! I used to think differently, but this is my first time calling about feedback... and it was an admonition.
Tip for consumers: Get a neg or neutral... you better hope the buyer curses or tries extorting. That's the only way they will help you. If you block a buyer, sometimes it works but sometimes they get a new account. eBay doesn't care if that blocked buyer is using other friends/relatives user ids to attack you.Ask ashley about eBay
I purchased and paid for an iPod. The item was never received, so I opened a dispute. Ebay quickly resolved in the seller's favor. After wasting hours on this, I'm done with Ebay.

I have spent over 60 hours on this case and it's a lengthy explanation, but incredibly revealing for both eBay and PayPal:
A buyer requested to return a coat for the reason of "nothing wrong, just didn't like it." It was stated in my listing that I don't do returns, so I denied the request for the reason of buyer's remorse. They proceeded to ship the item back to me outside of eBay anyways. I called eBay multiple times and was assured that since the error was the buyer's and the return case was closed that there was nothing they could do to possibly pull the funds from my account. I didn't need to return the coat to them, but I still got in touch with them to try. The buyer then sent me money out of the blue to overnight the coat to the other side of the country, but I refunded that money since I wasn't able to change the shipping address on PayPal. They then re-sent the money demanding that I ship to Canada and didn't understand why it couldn't be done through ebay's international shipping program. It was an e-check that would take a week to clear, so I told them that I'd have to wait for that. They were incredibly uncooperative and when I finally said I would ship, they went and filed a claim on PayPal that the coat was "significantly not as described" (which was a lie, as documented by their messages on eBay) and forced a full refund in their favor. The claim was closed within 24 hours. I spent the next 3 days on hold with eBay explaining the situation and was told that there was no way that the return should have happened because it was a case of buyer's remorse, but that eBay had no power and the refund was done by PayPal. I finally got through to PayPal and was told that this decision was absolutely final and in the buyer's favor because the item had been returned and in my possession, so it's automatically a refund for the buyer. They not only got a full refund, but also the original $15 I paid to ship AND the seller fees I had to pay eBay, since the return wasn't documented on eBay. I lost $40 in this situation and feel like nobody at eBay had any power to do anything and I just got lost in a mess of transfers. I would be on hold for a few hours and then finally get through to someone, explain my story all over again, and then get transferred to someone who had no idea what was happening but who couldn't transfer me back the other way, so I'd have to hang up and wait on hold again for a few hours to try again. I had spent a so much of my time being assured by eBay that I did nothing wrong and the buyer was messing up right and left, but then being told by PayPal that eBay has no power and was just "giving me false hope."
So basically if a seller denies a return on eBay, just ship it back to them anyways and then file a case with PayPal (even if it's a complete lie) because eBay has no power to protect sellers and you will get a full refund + return shipping.
Ebay is a great site. Their basic search engine on the home page and options to view various different categories is easy to use.Members can sell or buy by make bids for items and the site is constantly updated with new prices and new auctions...I am sure as most of you know.
Great concept which does not get old.
I have ordered 3 items from EBay, my bad none of the products were useful/as described, claimed an Issue customer representative called and asked me to send the product back but i did not get any address to send the product. Selfie stick is not stable where i can click the picture. I have lost trust on online shopping because of eBay.
I recently purchased on EBay (from a company calling itself American Rhino) a dog Halloween custom for $20. When it arrived it was too small, so I contacted the seller by email and asked to exchange the item. The seller refused to deal with me and directed me to EBay. After 2 calls to EBay over 2 weeks, I was finally told an exchange was not possible because the larger item had already sold out. So now it was just a matter of making the return. After two more calls over a period of 2 more weeks, I finally got an email from EBay supposedly offering directions how to return the item. The link with instructions didn't work, so I had to call EBay a 5th time only to learn I was expected to pay for the return of the item. In other words, I was being directed to pay $10-20 in return shipping costs to get a $20 return. Needless to say, this has been a horrible shopping experience and I do no plan to ever purchase anything on EBay again!

Bought this JLS-2016 Electric Airsoft Pistol from a seller on eBay for $19.00 but it's not worth 19 cents it should come with a case of super glue to keep it together parts break off it the clip is junk also BB fly out of the clip before you get it in the gun the gun jams all the time, the pistol looks great but that is all it is good for is to look at for actual shooting and having fun with it is junk I would rather have a sling shot. Thank You
UNTRAINED , DOES NOT SPEAK CLEAR ENGLISH OFTEN LIE ABOUT THE EBAY POLICIES. LISTED A LAP TOP FOR PARTS NOT WORKING AND THE RESOLUTION TOLD ME NOT TO CONTACT SELLER THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF IT. THEY DID NOT EBAY CONDUCT ILLEGAL TRADING WITH FRAUDULENT NON ENGLISH SPEAKERS TO STEAL MONEY SOUND LIKE CLASS ACTION NEEDS TO SETTLE WITH THEM
I was scammed by "cooldeal88" on eBay.com. Paid $200 for two cell phones that I was told were ready to be used in North America, and were supposed to be in English. When phones arrived, after waiting over a month to receive, both phones were in Chinese, and when I went to hook them up, I was told the brand was not compatible with North American markets.
I contacted the seller and explained my problem and was told to ship them back and once they got the items, they would refund my money.
Here it is, almost two years later and I am still waiting to be reimbursed.
When I contacted eBay to tell them what was happening, they informed me that my 30 days I had to make a complaint had passed and that I was SOL! When I tried to explain to them that my order did not arrive until well after the 30 days, they told me that it was my problem, not theirs, and that maybe I should not order from countries so far away that takes so long to deliver.
I would caution anyone wanting to make a purchase through this shady company to reassess your options before spending any real money on this site: unless you have money you want to literally give away!
I've sold around 100 items on ebay and bought a fair number too.
Good: As a marketplace, Ebay still seems to be the best place to buy and sell unusual items, or find mainstream items at a discount if you don't care where it comes from. There is substantial buyer demand for the right items and eBay is not dead in any sense.
Bad: As a seller, Ebay's site is very buggy. This is endlessly frustrating. Listing items is frequently met with bugs in the listing page. And Ebay doesn't care. The site is dated and difficult to navigate.
Seller fees are not outrageous but they are quite high (10%).
Customer service is also poor and is known to side with the buyer.
The ratings system is better than it used to be, but a corrupt seller can still have your negative feedback removed even if it was perfectly valid.
If I could find a better platform to sell my items, I would gladly leave eBay.
