 Post subject: Do you ebay?
PostPosted: Sat Oct 27, '07, 2:21 am 
Have you ever bought or sold on the online auction site - ebay? What do you think of ebay?

I have done both from time to time. Some experiences have been pleasant, and some not so, but that's the way the ball bounces. :wink: Still, it is an awesome place.

What do you think of the " weird " or unusual auctions they have from time to time? I remember one where someone saw something, maybe a face, in a toasted cheese sandwich, I think it was. :dizzy: I also recall one where someone had a potato chip or something like that which was shaped like a dog (perhaps a poodle). :roll: It always surprises me to see auctions like these and even more surprising to see the bids they usually get. :yaknow:

I also love the out-of-sight auctions like John Snider's auction for the "General Lee" not too long ago.

Anyone recall any others?

I've bought plenty, but never sold.

The weird auctions are good for a laugh sometimes. Some of those people are nuts. I remember seeing one auction for a bag of wind from a hurricane. :boggled:

Aye, it's crazy what some people sell. I've heard about one college student who basically auctioned her...innocence, in a manner of speaking. Crazy, as that's pretty much the same thing as prostitution. :blank:

^That is now officially the weirdest online auction I have ever heard of. :o

I haven't bought much on eBay, just a few small things. I would never buy something perishable like food on there.

Some people just go crazy with the bidding. I remember once hearing on the news that some little kid had bid several thousand dollars on a house or something. I bet his/her parents were not happy to get that bill.

Paypal is both a blessing and a curse at times. There are so many auctions now that only accept Paypal that one almost has to have it to buy anything. It is faster I suppose, but I'd rather pay by a money order in most cases.

I've gotten a couple of things from ebay, Turbografx16 controllers and multitap. And a few games.

I agree with Thoul's statement about Pay pal being both a blessing and a curse.

There are other methods to use besides Pay Pal, such as Bid Pay, etc., although I suppose Pay Pal is the most popular.

Also, I think, it is now a requirement that new sellers must have Pay Pal or a Merchant Account (not exactly sure what that last one is) in order to sell on ebay.

Older sellers do not have to meet that requirement as of now however, I think, and many of them do not like Pay Pal and do not use it. Whatever works for you, I guess. :wink:

I agree. Was that one canceled or what? I wonder what the final bid was. :lol:

From what I've heard, eBay cancelled it and the British girl moved it to another site. As for the final bid, I don't know how high it was, but apparently the man gave her the money without doing the 'service', or so I've read.

And to think. The length a girl would go to pay for college expenses. :roll:
