My experience with eBay is the worse. They stole my money and suspend my account and when you try to talk to them they said the account was suspicious and they decided to stop the seller to send my product but why they don’t tell the seller to give me my money back, the only they can do is telling me to go to my bank and try to see what they can do, this company is sucks, they took $300 from me and my kids was very very hard to save that money to buy a swimming pool for them and now I don’t have money and swimming pool.. Please do not buy anything from this company. They are a thief..
eBay scammed me. Stole all my money. Shut my account down. I lost all my products inventory at the time. I do not recommend them. Money was stuck processing for 3 weeks before I lost everything to them.

I entered an eBay card into my eBay account to make a purchase. eBay suspended my account, which prevented the transaction from going through. I followed the information eBay provided on the suspension screen to still make that purchase; it did not work. During the eBay resolution procedure via "chat" (twice), they said that the suspension is permanent and refused to refund my purchase of the eBay gift card. I explained that this card can only be used on eBay; if they disallow my eBay account, then the card is unusable. When I paid for the eBay card, eBay was credited with the funds intended for my use. By disallowing my account (with any explanation specifically refused), eBay ensured that it gets to keep my money. This is a financial crime eBay commits against its users and investigation is befitting to scope the pervasiveness, duration, and the amount of unjust enrichment.
Just a very brief warning to anyone selling goods on eBay, there is absolutely no protection for sellers, crooks buying can complain with one word in spite of 100% honest detailed descriptions and pictures being posted. Be aware many crooks have caught onto this scam!
I took a break from selling on eBay and since I've returned, it's been a waste of time and I've actually LOST money. I sold a few items in an auction. The shipping is calculated a lot differently than how it was in the past. Apparently, my shipping fees were too low so eBay took the difference out of my debit account. If I hadn't looked at my bank statement I wouldn't have known this. I lost about $4 on each item. When the items were selling for .99 and $2, it cost me more to ship it than what I made lol.
Another issue I have is the "Listing Ad Rate" for non auction items. When I didn't have it turned on my items would just sit there for months with NO ONE seeing them. Now, eBay expects sellers to pay between 2% and 100% of the sales total just so buyers can see what they're selling. If you're selling an item for $25 and you want people to see it, expect to pretty much give all of your profits to eBay. Their shipping costs used to be reasonable, but now they're a joke. It costs $9 to ship a lightweight shirt to someone! Because of that, I've had to drop my prices significantly. I mean who wants to pay $9 for something that weighs a few ounces? I've used eBay on and off for years and made a decent amount of money. Now, it seems the only one making money is eBay. There are plenty of other websites and apps that offer a similar service but they're transparent and they aren't out to screw everyone over.
Sellers please avoid eBay for high priced items. My account is 15 years old and my last high priced item was sold over 90 days ago so eBay decided to hold the funds for 30 days (and that is when you have done nothing wrong as a seller). You have to wait a whole month to get your money and for nothing. I am not a business just an individual seller getting rid some of my personal things so you would think that you do that please you needed money right? So then I've gone through a chat session with a rep pretty much repeating generic sentence out of their QA saying it's to protect buyer. So what about sellers? You are taking 15% commission and doing nothing good for us. You think this kind of ** platform is worth 15% commission out of your sales? Avoid at all cost!
eBay is ran by Scammers in my and many people's opinion … They will charge amount of an item sold as a whole instead of the item selling amount. Real example: I sold an item on eBay for $225…. Seller paid $ $109 for shipping plus $27 tax… which is correctly not part of the $225 if item sold. Total buyer paid was $361….yet EBay charged me 13% of the $361 instead of the $225 for processing which I ended up getting only $176 … They ripped me and all sellers off.. It’s a scheme which is why the try to get you to print out and purchase a shipping label through them instead of at the post office…. It’s a hella scam…. I really feel for sellers who are not aware of this trap….**-ebay
I just canceled the account I’d had for over 20 years. I’ve dealt with more than one flakey seller in recent days, and this last one is the last straw. The seller did not send the package, EBay sent me numerous emails about this purchase, I did what they told me only for them to tell me the purchase isn’t eligible for refund, and I couldn’t even give the ripoff artist a bad review. My account is deleted and I will never deal with them again.
Seller Id: retail_overstock. The seller above did not return my money. Greedy seller, warning - do not spend your money. Dear eBay Customer Service, MAY 1, 2023. I am writing to express my disappointment and frustration with my recent shopping experience on eBay. I purchased the Sound Oasis sleep support insomnia, world's smallest white noise machine travel from a seller less than two weeks ago, but unfortunately, the item did not meet my expectations. I received the item in April 19. Delivery date was April 17. As a customer, I rely on the assurance of being able to return an item if it does not meet my satisfaction. However, the seller has declined my request for a return, despite the fact that it is within the 14-day return window.
I am extremely disappointed with the seller's refusal to accept my return, and I feel that my rights as a customer have been violated. I have made every effort to resolve this issue with the seller, but unfortunately, they have been unresponsive. I urge eBay to intervene in this matter and help me obtain a refund for the item. I believe that eBay has a responsibility to ensure that sellers comply with their return policies and that customers receive the support they need to resolve any issues. I have always trusted eBay as a reliable online marketplace, but this experience has left me feeling let down and frustrated. I hope that eBay will take swift action to resolve this matter and restore my confidence in their platform. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
They are scammers. I’ve had eBay for 10 years and DELETED MY ACCOUNT. I suggest you do the same before they scam you out of hundreds, if not more, money. I sent a package using their website for international first class and international first class does not have shipping to Mexico. Now my buyer said they did not receive the item and eBay cannot do anything except refund them with the money they gave me plus a $20 fee that they took. So now I’ve lost my item, I’ve lost the money I received plus an extra $20 from eBay and the post office will not accept the claim due to their policy, eBay also refuses to refund me. There is no buyer protection and if you are smart, he will try the millions other alternatives. I have already put in a case with BBB and my bank. I will get my money back!
