Original review: Jan. 30, 2023

In March of 2022, I tried ordering a high-output alternator from Amp Lightning Alternators through eBay Motors. I'll be brief. It was for a 2002 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson edition. At first, all was cordial. I received my item in a timely manner, even with the pigtail upon request with no hassles. I got back in town from contracting to have it put in and my mechanic informs me that the casing is 1-1/2 inch too big. So, I informed Amp and they said to send it back; this was around October. When attempts were made to follow up, the mood of the conversation changed from courteous to nonchalant. Today, I am out $400 AND an alternator.

I understand the policies of return and all, but if I'm told something, I follow up. By the way, I don't know ANYONE's name. I tried giving them my information to talk the issue over....and I'm still waiting. The company has decent ratings, but just not from myself. Everything was professional until the conversation seemed to where no one there was communicating as it related to communicating with me. I hope this helps!

I have "sold" the same vehicle twice with both sales being cancelled due to buyers who changed their mind or had an invalid email address and would not pay. The only penalty for the buyer is a flag gets set. The seller gets nothing other than a free listing for seven days. As a result all watchers are lost with the new listing. I find this platform unreliable and will not use it again for automobiles.

    There's a scam for a 2000 Itasca SunCruiser RV on RV Trader. Looked good so I contacted the seller. Someone got back immediately saying it was their aunt and gave me their email. Emailed some person named Leslie **, a scammer (probably not even real) saying her husband passed away, blah blah blah. Just like some other reviewers here said the same. Told me she "relocated" for her new job far away in MT and wouldn't be there in person - eBay Motors would handle everything. I instantly knew something didn't sound right. Listen y'all, use your intuition, don't ignore it. If something sounds too good to be true it likely is. Don't rush to buy and regret it later!!! Take your time.

    I made an eBay account in order to sell my vehicle. I followed the instructions and saved my add. I was then asked to list my add. I did so, with a response that my account was suspended. I tried for 2 days to contact someone, at many different times throughout the day. (during their business hours) Neither online chat or phone would work. After 2 days, I was informed via email that I owed $79 dollars for the add, I paid it and it showed posted on my eBay account the next day. I attempted to list the add, that was saved, and was told my account was suspended. I was finally able to get a hold of some via chat, as the phone option said it was still not available, and they told me my account was suspended. I said for what?

    They said I owed $79.00. I said, my account shows it posted and cleared and is at zero balance. Try again eBay. Then they said, it is suspended because of reasons they can't disclose. Keep in mind I have never used this account before, and I am trying to sell my vehicle that is owned, and clear title under my name. I also used their listing software to make the add and pay. I then told them, fine, refund my money. I was told there was no money showing. Now I was no longer happy. I screenshotted my bank account and my eBay account and showed them the 79 dollar payment.

    They then said, my account is suspended and that is final. I went through 3 different chat session before I got someone that said they will fill out a refund for me. If I don't see the 79 dollar refund in three days, I am calling a lawyer. I have never used eBay, and after my first attempt, I will be deleting my account and never using them again. Worst company, and hope someone starts a class action, as I will be first in line.

    I paid from Hawaii based bank for Hawaii based address and they sent to a 14 yr old address that has been deleted from account for 13yrs. Now eBay refused to help me get my parts and address they say they delivered to is a offsite dump for commercial refuse. So where did he put it if delivered in a dump where it will never be found. I think delivery guy saw mistake and stole package and sold and they are covering up for him. No one just places a packages in a dump and writes it off as delivered.

    I ordered a special kind of soap, I put my order in January, 3rd. So they told me I was going to get the product on January, 27th so I never received my product. The next thing I trying to get my refund back. From eBay and they giving me a difficult time. So the next thing I gonna do is file a complaint against them, number 1, I can't get to a representative so I can discuss with them about my product. And getting my refund back. Early today I spoken to a fake phony representative, and he sounded like a scammer. He didn't sound like he was professional. So he wanted me to do all these things and he started to make me frustrated. Before I hung the phone up on him, I said to him I am going to get my refund back. Then he had the nerve to send me a text message. Using the ** word. Now I said how unprofessional is that. That's how I knew he wasn't a real eBay, agent cause he was using discrepancies.

    But when I file a complaint against them. I don't know his name, but I can add his phone number. On file eBay is a terrible online company, I will never refer nobody to them. They are a waste of time. eBay doesn't deliver your product on time. I dealt with them one time. And that'll be my last time dealing with them. EBay is not good and professional, like Amazon. Amazon, is a real good professional. Company all eBay, wants to do is scam people. And take they damn money. I hope and wish eBay, go out of business. Cause it sounds 2 me they are a full of scammers. They can't touch amazon, I will give eBay a one low star. That's all they going to get from me. That company is terrible and a waste of time.

    I found a camper for $1400. DEBRA said she lost her husband to a heart attack 2 months prior and moved back to her home town of Minneapolis. She wanted to get rid of it because it made her think of her husband. Ebay Motors sent me a email saying I had to buy gift cards worth 1400.00 and send them. I even called the FAKE number, in which, someone answered. Sounded all legit. I said that I'm not protected if I send gift cards. She said Ebay would honor them and that when I buy them they could start the delivery process. Gift cards to purchase something that big did not make sense to me so I googled eBay motors and found all of these similar reviews. So glad I did. Scam!

    Bought a car on eBay. I have sold numerous collector cars worldwide, never an issue. This car was presented as having a rebuilt engine and transmission. After purchase seller (Alex ** aka Alda Logistics) never provide any paperwork as promised. Upon arrival I looked underneath car, was obvious drivetrain never touched. Pulled valve cover, years of sludge. The engine has been rebuilt with a can of spray paint (overspray all over upon inspection). Put on a claim to Ebay VPP. They said engine "damage" was not covered. I tried to say this was not damage, but misrepresentation. They said too bad, they call it damage??? During conversation rep at VPP (represented as an insurance company) told me he called ebay and they said they would not cover, period. This means VPP is not independent as they imply, but literally just another office within Ebay.

    To make things worse after I posted negative feedback they removed it. When I contacted them they said they talked to the seller and he told them he had given me a refund. When I told them he had not sent a refund and why would they not ask me first they admitted "mistake" but said once removed they could not repost. Seller is still selling cars on Ebay as clazziccarz and likely misrepresenting the dozen or more cars he currently has listed. Ebay cares more about listing and selling fees than the buyer. NEVER BUY A CAR ON EBAY MOTORS BELIEVING THEY WILL HONOR THE VPP AS THEY PORTRAY IT!!

    I purchased a car on eBay. It has undisclosed problems that cost $2400 to correct. I filled a warranty claim and I couldn't get a response from the third party insurance. Ultimately they would only tell me verbally that my claim was denied. The insurance is worthless. Last time I will ever buy through eBay Motors.

    Their service is terrible and their advertising very misleading. They charge a fee even if you don't sell it or cancel the listing. I also was charged a fee when a vehicle did not sell but someone had mistakenly tagged it as sold, locking my listing. I had to create a new listing, but then they charged me the selling fee for the first listing too! I will never use eBay Motors again!

    eBay Motors author review by Emma Simon

    Cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles are available on this classic bidding site. You can either bid on a vehicle or, if available, buy at the set price. You can also look at satisfaction ratings to see if a seller has a history of satisfied customers and is legitimate. Daily deals on car parts and other accessories also provide opportunities for savings.

    • Bidding process: You can bid on the vehicles on eBay Motors, just like you can on the rest of the eBay site. If you are the highest bidder, the car is yours. Otherwise, keep bidding.

    • Vehicles and car parts available: eBay Motors also sells motorcycle, truck and other vehicle parts. Bid and sell on car parts just like you would for any other item on the eBay site.

    • Vehicle protection program: eBay Motors can protect purchases of up to $50,000. If you pay for a vehicle but never receive it, or accidentally pay for a stolen vehicle, then the purchase protection will go into effect.

    • Available mobile app: A companion mobile app is available for users who want to access eBay Motors from their phone. Here, you can search and bid on cars, just like you can on the website.

    • Daily deals on vehicle essentials: eBay Motors has a Daily Deals section where you can browse bargain offerings on car care essentials, accessories and garage or shop equipment.
