    Ebay

    I have never used ebay before but I am thinking about starting to buy and sell on it. Who else here uses it and is it easy to use and catch on to? Also would I need to get a paypal account to use it? I have never used paypal before so I don't really know how that works either.

    I use it and I haven't had any problems, but I've only ever used it to buy, never to sell.

    just always check somebody's background if you buy.

    That's the best advice I can give you. If they have any lower than 97% feedback check why. If it is obvious that they are not a good seller, don't sell from them. It's really hard to get a bad feedback rating.

    I've been buying and selling on Ebay for years. To me it has been nothing but a positive experience (minus a couple purchases I made that weren't totally what I expected). Just make sure you read everything carefully (and word everything carefully if selling). The way things are worded in Ebay auctions is very important in some cases.

    And yes, you will need a Paypal account (it makes purchases much easier and is pretty much needed for selling). Additionally, you need a bank account to confirm your Paypal account once you start using it (for $$ transfers, etc...). Paypal charges you a small percentage to sell, but nothing to use if purchasing an item.

    All in all, I think it's a relatively easy system to use.

    Re: Ebay

    I've only bought 4 items on Ebay, and I don't even know how you would go about selling anything.

    But I'm very pleased with everything I've purchased, because I haven't gotten ripped off yet.

    I just bought an autographed Jim Marshall jersey, for only $78.00 with shipping and handling. And it's brand new and came with an certificate of authenticity.

    About a month ago, I bought a Mitchell and Ness, Cris Carter and John Stockton jersey for only $175.00.

    And about 6 months ago, I bought a magazne that I desperatly wanted.

    So let's just say I've had a good experience with Ebay. :grin:
    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    I use it a decent amount. I love it...it's really simple as long as you have a paypal account and a credit card, and paypal is easy enough to setup.
