Uh, does anyone here still use eBay? Especially to buy something?

I can’t recall the last time I bought something on eBay.

Couple of reasons:

  • Too many items from too many different sellers to sort through
  • Blatant & annoying fee avoidance – $49.95 to ship a 3 ounce memory card
  • Feedback + rating system still a joke
  • No warranty or support from select sellers
  • Prices no longer as competitive to offset negatives

Back in the days, whenever someone ask me if I know of a cheap place online to get something, I would tell them to search eBay first. Now, I just point them to various price comparison search engines or specific online forums for used goods.
