• Why the New ebay?
There is no other marketplace that can provide such a varied selection of products from multiple sellers – all in one place, and all striving for your business.
The prices on ebay are almost always lower than anywhere else because sellers are competing with each other to get your sale, and trying to be the seller that offers you the lowest price is the main way they do it.
A note about “The New ebay:”
Today’s ebay is not the “flea-market” of it’s early years, There have been a lot of changes. The “New” ebay is striving to be the largest and most trusted marketplace on the Internet. They want your visit and transactions to be as safe and satisfying as any you would make at your favorite local shop.
ebay always had a Buyer’s protection program, but now it is beefed up to cover your purchase from the time you pay for it, until it reaches your door. And if you are not satisfied, or your item is not what it was represented to be, and in the condition described in the listing, – you get your money back!
ebay also got rid of the untrustworthy sellers that used to anonymously flock to the site. Now all sellers must have verifiable identities backed-up by bank and credit card information when they register.
They also started a “Top-Rated Sellers” program that allows sellers with a sterling track record of previous customer satisfaction to display a “Top-rated Seller” icon on all their listings. When you see that you know you are dealing with a reputable customer-oriented seller.
ebay also works with their sellers, using incentives to promote listings that offer Free shipping, because that is what their customer surveys said you wanted.
And finally, they promote listings with “BIN” prices, (Buy-It-Now prices), so if you don’t like to bid on your items, or don’t want to wait for an auction to end, – just look for listings that have a Buy-it-Now price, and it can be yours with just 1-click!
Shop with confidence, your purchases are protected from start to finish!
