    @STARVINGSA1NT I talked to all my artist friends who use tablets and they agreed hands down the ipad with the apple pencil is the way to go. Unfortunately they're expensive af but there are some nice used ones on ebay for a lot less. I'm gonna try it and see how it goes!

  • blinkertyblink Chris Read (@blinkertyblink) reported

    @Xbox R.I.P The Land Down Under, selling out wave 1 in minutes.. and guess what they are mostly all on Ebay..

  • cjwynes Chris Wynes (@cjwynes) reported

    @sigfig8 @QuietSpec @ToaMichael If I play a beta in a webcam match, people are likely to think it's clipped CE, so it has less flair value at the moment -- collectibility is obv still much higher. I saw a steady stream of MP/HP UNL duals getting auctioned on eBay this yr which could've been keeping $ down.

    @Ben_Salter @shancake_ @EBGamesAus It's a joke. They were also aware there payment system needed upgrading but haven't actioned anything to fix until after the issue. Legit over a hundred listing's for Aus series x on ebay with 3 mins of eb opening.

  • akhilpedia Akhil (@akhilpedia) reported

    Can't believe even after the shut down of eBay in India years back, no one has come up with a plausible alternative yet. Realizing the value of eBay after getting exhausted from finding an old motherboard version. Might have to resort to aliexpress.

  • blackdahlianz Josh (@blackdahlianz) reported

    @VulpixPrincess @majornelson Yep, exact same issue. I hope no one buys off eBay and they’re stuck with them.

  • chindownhandsup nate dawg (@chindownhandsup) reported

    @JimmmoSwitch @EBGamesAus A simple and elegant approach. Leave it open for an hour for level 5, then level 4 etc. Or implement capcha. Or have a wait queue. Lots of options available. Most irking issue is the number of units now on ebay for double the price. Honest customers obviously missing out.

  • CerevisiaMagus Brandon Cochran (@CerevisiaMagus) reported

    @EBGamesAus Ah I just love to I lose two hours+ of sleep to get up in order to sit there before the timer finishes to be met with errors till It kicked me for too many attempts only to see most of the preorders up on eBay within 30 minutes for $1200+ now I get to miss lunch for this Fing🤡s

  • thought_punk us ghostal service (@thought_punk) reported

    which is not really what i wanted to hear but also kind of what i expected. i got it off ebay for $200 including shipping. that’s....yeah. so what i’m doing instead is that i left it with him, it is just his now to fix or whatever he wants, and i go back saturday

  • rar0uni Rar0uni (@rar0uni) reported

    @JayzTwoCents @LinusTech I wish we could see track what ebay listing go down after their "confirmed" order was canceled lol

  • rec3de pietro #BLM (@rec3de) reported

    @santirp04 @VeryGingerous @HipHopConvoz 2018 get on down repress, not sold retail anymore you gotta find it on ebay or discogs

  • williammeis Williammeis (@williammeis) reported

    @DMines25 @thexboxcowboy @majornelson Come on bud retail or not, Ebay shouldn’t allow presales of ANY items. Tickets, consoles, phones. Nothing. If you don’t possess you shouldn’t be allowed to “sell” it. Ebay could fix this but they only care about 💰 💰

  • jtevans1991 Jeremy Evans (@jtevans1991) reported

    @XboxP3 is there a stock issue with the XSX and XSS? Pre orders were a bit of a **** show down in ANZ this morning. Most retailer websites crashed and/or sold out instantly (like literally) but eBay is littered with scalpers selling the devices :(

  • UndgnfiedWrshpr Brian S Bishop (@UndgnfiedWrshpr) reported

    @Xbox your consoles are being bought by bots and being sold for $1000 on eBay. Did you learn nothing from Sony's debacle? Orders go live central time at 10am and already your sight says the order page can't be found. All my funds are in Microsoft account for Series X. Fix this!

  • darksidegauge wolfy (@darksidegauge) reported

    @demonboyfriend yeah its just that theyve cracked down on ebay sellers before cus theyre basically just using other ppls credit cards to buy the fantasias to sell and it gives me the fear but i will look at that ebvay account

  • affinity4anime Affinity for Anime (@affinity4anime) reported

    @Jeffrey_Jue The maker is FuRyu. They're just prize figures, nothing special. Search ebay for "Rem Ram milkyway" and you'll get a ton of results. Not very expensive either. I paid a bit more to buy from an American seller because I've had problems importing stuff not shipped DHL.

  • ArklyteK A (@ArklyteK) reported

    I often checked if an item's stock was really out or whether restocks were likely. If an item was restocked online, others could pre-order again, and the price of my eBay pre-order listing went down. I either had to cancel+refund or honor my listing at a loss (because eBay fees)

  • ewok_schultz Sgt. Schultz the Ewok (@ewok_schultz) reported

    @eBay please please reach out to me for assistance with a problem on eBay with a buyer. I can’t get anything but an auto response anywhere from eBay!

  • GallagherPreach Chris Gallagher (@GallagherPreach) reported

    How many hours have you spent lately trying to get something resolved? Today is was >2 hour with @CapitalOne with my daughters card hacked. Also, over the past 10 days with @Ebay because of a lack of communication. My company, @G5wellness fixes problems at one communication.

  • crab_racoon collin (@crab_racoon) reported

    Watching the eBay auction timer go down and trying to bid in time is like defusing a bomb im shaking

  • unclechunt ⬜UNCLE CHUNT | Series X (@unclechunt) reported

    @alaisdair Yeah im pissed. Had a Series X in cart at 8:01am and couldn't get passed constant errors when clicking "PAY NOW" getting booted out of your site. In less than 20mins later out of stock. What the hell man. Sort out your security stop gaps for bots. So many on eBay already.

  • robbiegoudie goudie (@robbiegoudie) reported

    ma biggest issue when am gassed is trying to stay aff ebay and avoid buying absolute nonsense

  • Prozium_Dealer John Preston (Ex Labour member) 3.5% needed. (@Prozium_Dealer) reported

    @katedodd3 I used to fix old clocks as a hobby, sold them on ebay. Charged £20-30 shipping with reputable company. Buyers ******* about cost , would only pay for Hermes, 8/10 smashed, then whined they wanted a refund & told me to claim from courier. Hobby lasted 6 months...

  • Hewso81 Matt Hewson (@Hewso81) reported

    What pisses me off the most is that is seems eBay scalping ***** had no trouble getting consoles. eBay needs to crack down on this ****. It is illegal and against their tandcs


    @WickedCrispy to make the most of a bad situation, send the broken one you had initially back to amazon for a refund, make a 1 star review, then ebay the one amazon sent you for cash to pay for the HK one you have to order

  • PeterdubVlogs Peterdub (@PeterdubVlogs) reported

    @PlayStation Honestly I don’t see the problem it good because these resellers price the ps5 on eBay for $1k or even more there probably would been more of them if ps5 released a Pre order on the day they said and those resellers could be more prepared

  • Robert_Tonkli Robert Tonkli (@Robert_Tonkli) reported

    @majornelson Larry, the problem is that loyal Xbox customers are getting bypassed by bots. I tried in Australia to preorder off a couple of retailers, and their sites crashed. However, if you look on Ebay, it looked like the scalpers were successful. Surely there must be a better system?

  • bennetts89 Haylee Bennetts (@bennetts89) reported

    @Foxy_Gamer_Girl @PressStartAU Check ebay there's heaps of confirmed pre orders on there, I think the bots/scalpers got most of the pre orders, I went to jbhifi after 20 mins of eb errors

    @Microsoft Hey MS, you crossed the line when you tried to cram Cortana and Shared Experience and Edge down my throat. I bought a Windows 7 comp on ebay. Upgraded the video card. Works great, plays all the games I like. I hate Apple more than you, so there is that...
