I have been a user of Ebay since 2010 primarily as a buyer but in the last several months I started selling large quantities of products with them and in addition opened an ebay store subscription. What I found was that ebay charged large fees to sell and did not prottect me as the seller from fraudulant buyers at all. Ebay's Buyer protection and feedback system creates the perfect enviroment for people to commit fraud on sellers using the buyer protection plan and feedback as tools to do it. I experienced people buying items then demanding partial refund in return for positive feedback, I experienced people buying items then 45 days later requesting refund with nothing wrong with the item they purchassed and I experienced absolutely no backing from ebay to assist and stop such buying practices. In addition because of ebay's policies my funds were held so I could not get the money paid by legitimate buyers for my products, my bank account was indangered of overdraft even with funds in my paypal account from buyers overall I had no safety in selling on ebay and suffered loss in profit because of them. Ebay offers a 45 day return policy regardless if the buyer is presentin false claim in order to get refund with evidence to prove fraudulant claim and regardless of facts and discriptions along with listing photographs.

If you sell on ebay in my opinion you leave yourself wide open to be overcharged to do so and you are leaving yourself wide open to theft. You also leave your personal finances at the fingers of ebay basically by listing with ebay your investment in product becomes turned over to them with you doing all the work. In the end you get what is left over after ebay, paypal and fraud takes its portion of your sales.
