What to buy on eBay? Can you trust it?
 
Does anyone buy hair products on eBay? I saw some sample kits by various companies that intrigue me, but I don't know how to be sure they're legitimate and not expired product or whatever. What do you buy? Are there certain sellers you trust? Thanks!

I've bought every kind of hair product (and hundreds of other items) on Ebay. I just make sure the seller has a good feedback rating and I also read some of the feedback comments.

I've had good and bad experiences on eBay. I got cheated by a seller with a 100% rating, so I'm wary now.

(Yes, I reported it, and no, eBay did not help.)

It really depends on the individual seller. Ebay, the company itself, has little influence, they just provide sellers and buyers with a platform.

Just be careful, make sure that the seller has good feedback. I've been shopping on ebay for over 6 years and I've only had good experiences so far.

I'd sooner trust a seller with a 98.5% rating and 1,000 transactions than someone with a 100 and fewer than ten transactions. It's a bit of a judgement call. I always check the negative and neutral detailed feedback to see what those say, because some buyers will give 5 star but leave negative detail, and others are ridiculous and rate low just to try to get a refund. If its an expensive purchase or I feel nervous, I google the heck out of them, as well.

Thank you all!

Sorry to hear that luv. Did all contact go through eBay? Paid through PayPal? I ask because I've been had there as well . 3 times but I received money back because all transaction went through eBay and I had paid through PayPal. Sounded like you got a tough break :-(

I've always been happy with my eBay purchases...I'd like to buy a bigger ticker item...but for that I'm scared. They are selling iPads...and I'd love to buy one. Anyone with any experience with that type stuff?

I haven't bought hair products on ebay, but I've bought some of everything else, from jewelry, to electronics, to clothing and I've had great experiences. Like everyone else said read the feed back and also make sure that you read the complete listing page information and make sure you're aware of any fine print that may lead you to think you've been tricked if you miss it. Check to see if they give refunds if your product isn't in the condition it should be in and so on.

goddesscurls - I've bought laptops, 3-in-1 printers, cameras, and other electronic/tech items, new and used both, without issue.

GoddessCurls 12-01-2012 09:33 PM

Wow! Ok, thanks Jeep...I'll really have to look into that. Cause I could get an iPad way cheaper on there.
