Perhaps the world's best-known internet auction site, eBay is the home of great prices on pretty much anything that shoppers could wish to find. From designer clothing to second-hand bargains and from hard-to-find books to rare collectibles, eBay is a one-stop …shop for all kinds of interesting purchases. It's possible to search for items by category with all kinds of filtering options, such as colour, price, listing type and location, making it easier than ever to source the perfect product to suit the buyer's needs. If a purchaser would prefer to make an immediate purchase rather than bid on an item, there are lots of Buy It Now items, making it a breeze to buy whatever is required immediately. Items can be sourced from around the world, with many sellers offering international shipping, and with PayPal as a convenient payment option, buyers need not worry about the security of their financial transactions. » more

Ebay Customer Reviews
I love collecting Arts & Crafts antiques, but I find the prices are too high in the antique shops anymore. So I look solely online for them now, and I tend to gravitate towards Ebay. I love Ebay. I’ve gotten a beautiful, almost Pugin-style desk for just a few hundred pounds, a lovely Mahogany A&C server, paintings, pottery, fabrics, curtains, etc. I have never been disappointed with my antiques purchases on Ebay. I must admit I don’t buy a lot else there, but antiques are probably not the first things people think of finding here. And I’m here to tell you that there’s always an amazing selection of must-have items here. I’ve saved a few search criterion so that I get notifications when items I’m looking for come up for auction, and that has really helped flag items and future buys for me. They come right to my email -- so it's really user friendly.
I got started with Ebay after I moved house and found loads of things I no longer wanted. One of my friends suggested signing up for the site and selling them, and it worked really well. I was a bit intimidated at first but they really hold your hand and walk you through how to sell something step by step. Everything is done through PayPal so you get your money sent electronically...fast and super easy. Since I sold all of my stuff I've started bidding on items as well and have found everything from jewellery and handbags to a dress I saw Kate Middleton wear in a magazine. So far my experience has been great except one time where the seller took ages to post my purchase, and I had to send them several messages before I received it. Other than that I give it two thumbs up! If you want to make extra £ or just shop for some deals, it's a great site.
Well, I didn't get up at the crack of dawn to wait in line for Versace for H&M, so of course I missed out on everything. There was a black dress I was dying to have, so I decided to look on ebay. Fortunately I found it, and at £150 really it wasnt as bad as I thought...plus the auction only had a few minutes left when I found it, so I won it quickly. Really pleased with the dress and the transaction was easy - just paid via Paypal and it was sorted.
Whilst planning my wedding ebay has been a real star, truly I can find most of the things I want and need and for cheaper than elsewhere. This is especially true for the crafty bits like bulk brooches for the bouquets and ribbon and so forth. The only annoying factor is having to bid, so I do like 'buy it now' options when available but that's not always the case. A few times I've lost out on things but most of the time when I've wanted it I've won and not paid too much. Paying through PayPal is super easy, so that's a great aspect to it. Try it out if you haven't, it's definitely worth a go!
