Before You Commit on eBay

Be sure to check the person's rating. EBay gets feedback from their buyers on each vendor and it goes to a percentage. Vendors can be barred by having a low percentage of happy customers. There are many 100%-ers on eBay. If it's lower, you can click on the member's name and read his feedback. Maybe someone was just cranky or didn't read the item description well, which you should do very, very carefully. Ask questions that aren't covered.

Also, be sure to check the shipping cost. Some "bargains" make it up this way. Like anything else in life, there are good people and not-so-good people, so think before you bid.
