    Would shopping online at Ebay 4 my children’s Christmas be a good idea?
    I am thinking about shopping online at Ebay for Christmas because I checked out the website and see lots of things on my kids Christmas wish lists for much cheaper than in the stores. Has anyone shopped on Ebay and actually recieved what they ordered and were happy with it? Did you get robbed, never saw what you paid for? I am nervous about that happening, because it seems like it would be an easy thing to happen. Just wondering what others experiences were with things like this?

    Ebay is generally pretty safe.. I have bought things on their several times. My mom did everything online last year.. just pay attention to the shipping charges.. (if they seem kinda high they probably are) some sellers try to make a profit on shipping..

    You should look at the seller’s feedback rating to be more sure of how they did business before. Also, it would help if the pictures they provide are actual pictures of the item they have and not one that they took from another website. I have bought a lot of items from eBay, some have been as advertised, some not as good. You should use PayPal to pay because if sellers don’t ship the item or not like they state, you can file a claim and often you will get your money back.

    well as a seller – I say yes!

    I sell old video games (good quality) tell all faults in the item you send the money you get item + first class shipping and delivery confirmation. I have 100% positive feedback.

    basicaly to be safe check sellers history if they have a 99% or better (w/ no problems in the last year go for it)

    though i personaly love christmas shoppers on ebay (i am a tad bias though)

    We have had many good experiences with EBay! for a while I think I was addicted!

    You just have to make sure you check seller feedback. If they have good ratings then go for it!

    Some examples of our purchases on EBay…
    stroller, crib bedding, jackets, baby tux, adult suit, etc.

    We have gotten some good deals. All of the stuff we ordered were new. I compared prices everywhere and couldn’t find a better deal.

    In the past 2 years we have made 37 purchases and only one of them turned out bad… the product was crappy.

    I’ve never had a bad experience, but you need to really check out the people you’re buying from. If they don’t have 100% feedback or have a low number of feedback, you really need to be careful. Make sure you buy everything at least a month before Christmas to make sure it arrives on time as well. Make sure you pay using PayPal with a credit card for the most protection.

    I’ve bought hundreds of things on ebay and never been ripped off – but you have to be cautious and aware. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Brand new plasma TVs for a fraction of their true value are basically always scams. So don’t buy them. But buckets of Lego being sold because a child’s outgrown them are most unlikely to be anything other than genuine.
