What is eBay and what is its feature?
Probably there is no person who is interested in online shopping, who would not have heard of such a trading platform as ebay. EBay is the largest international online auction. It allows you to make purchases of imported goods without leaving your home. It is profitable to buy on eBay – a wide range of goods is presented here.

How to buy on ebay right?
It is necessary to immediately determine which type of shopping on eBay you are interested in – an auction or a standard order of goods (Buy It Now).
The first method, the auction, has many of its tricks and features. But the main thing you need to know is that an auction on eBay is not much different from the auctions that we all saw in the movies. The seller puts the minimum price for the goods and the maximum bid, as well as the time of the auction. And then it all depends on your assertiveness and dexterity. With good luck you have the opportunity to very profitable to purchase quite a valuable product!
If you are new to eBay or participating in bargaining scares you – use the function of the usual purchase of products at a fixed price. This process is no different than buying on any other online sites. You choose the product you like, add it to the “Add to cart” basket, then, after clicking “Buy it now”, you will see full information on the product and a request for confirmation of purchase “Commit to buy”. Be careful – confirming the purchase, you agree to pay for it. Unscrupulous customers who, for some reason, have not paid their order several times, will receive a warning from the system, and then the person will be blacklisted and no longer has the right to shop on eBay.
How not to fall into the trap?
Many users who have heard stories about the unreliability of sellers in foreign commodity platforms are interested in the question: How not to get caught on the crook hook when buying on eBay? The answer is simple: Always check reviews. Before buying a product, be sure to visit the seller’s profile and carefully monitor its reliability. Pay attention to the number of reviews – the more the better. But there is a little trick – look not only at the reviews, but also at their content. If most of the profile reviews were like customer reviews, there is no guarantee that, as a seller, this person is reliable. Similarly, pay attention to reviews like the seller. If they are all positive, but belong to small non-valuable goods, and the seller himself suddenly sells something expensive and impressive, such as technology or branded sneakers, you should think about it. Perhaps when selling expensive goods, this person will no longer be so honest with their customers.
