  • ZXretroXX ЅΙÐЅΙΧΤУŦОŮŖ (@ZXretroXX) reported

    @latentexistence Actually had someone tell me that poor people could buy a CRT off eBay, and then hunt down a digital tuner.

  • carslament Cip (@carslament) reported

    @kinomatika @ghodouin @Kohikki last tablet ordered had some issue with charging and bricked, so I've been drawing on my phone since then not ready to drop another 100+ on an eBay thing so might as well try this

  • SteveMcGookin Steve (@SteveMcGookin) reported

    @mudlarklives and you just know there were likely some that weren't "melted down" and will show up on eBay at some point...

  • AdvenChrlz Charles (@AdvenChrlz) reported

    @mollipen It's probably the drive belt, which is a VERY cheap and easy fix. You should be able to get a new one for almost nothing on ebay and swap belts using a pair of tweezers.

  • Glennfinito unforgetable luncheon sweetie (@Glennfinito) reported

    I've just watched a 3 part youtube series where a man tries to fix 20 broken switches he bought off ebay and it was extremely satifsying

    @MartinCox0155 @FanFairAlliance @MCRofficial @BBCRadio4 @jonchapple @IQ_Mag @SharonHodgsonMP @ByRobDavies @clairelouisetur @nadams @MMFUK @UK_Music @AIF_UK @markhmcgivern @DCMS @CommonsCMS Thing is with the prices,you really need to see the sales data. We know that tickets like that rarely sell for that kind of mark up but its like Ebay anyone can put a high asking price. Those prices will inevitably come down especially with more competition.All depends on demand

  • jeffery02504093 jeffery (@jeffery02504093) reported

    @AskPayPal @PayPal @PayPal4Business don’t care about any of their customers. They will steal from you any chance they get. They cleared me once then shut me down w/ same info sent in.conveniently when eBay released my money.

  • herealexhere ALEX, THE CREATOR (@herealexhere) reported

    My UK morning habits so far: drink a pint of yummy tap water, shop for tat on eBay, walk down the garden with arse being slowly frozen off, eat fried food, go back to sleep for an hour or so. Repeat...

  • taekhoney Shania⁷✍️BTS Thesis [Tour🔥Hell]📌 (@taekhoney) reported

    i'll just never understand it even if you're strapped for cash it's easy to do GAs, if you have a couple dollars you can get lomos/some cute things from aliexpress/ebay, like it's not a hobby you HAVE to break the bank over i started slow by just GAing what i had extra of and+

  • ImogenRW ImogenRussellWilliams (@ImogenRW) reported

    @Larushka_iz I know I’m in flow when I manage to write a piece without going on Duolingo, falling down Wikipedia wormhole or stalking Ebay like cat at a mousehole 😳 We would love to come again xxx

  • kurovalentine ĸυro @ screaming over fictional men |🔞 (@kurovalentine) reported

    @pachimaripanda I’ve been selling my figures on eBay and it takes a while. Personal experience. But no problem! I’ll be glad to help out cause I use eBay actively in selling my things

  • HappiestinBlue dulce⁷ ANAK DAY (@HappiestinBlue) reported

    Like when my friend said her sister lost her bts photocard so I gifted her that exact photocard, or when my friend said she didn’t get concert merch so I bought it on eBay and gave it to her or my coworker who said she really likes gummies and she was feeling down today but then

  • kurzo002 kieran (@kurzo002) reported

    @Ki11ersix @Joltzdude139 very big issue. Moxsy's most recent build got put on eBay 1 hour after release.

    @MrTommyCampbell Honestly never had a problem with EBay.

  • christ0phernunn Christopher Nunn 🎃 (@christ0phernunn) reported

    @MegaConstrux No way I'm trying to collect these.. as much as I want them.. chasing the MOTU collection has cost me a fortune as they are only available on eBay. Terrible terrible terrible customer service.

  • MFerg35 BIG FERG (@MFerg35) reported

    Mannn... I’ve had some serious issues over the last few weeks with eBay sellers sending me the wrong stuff.

  • Dre_Doyle O-Ren Ishii (@Dre_Doyle) reported

    Imagine if you could just get rid of your Ex on eBay or craigslist. **Male, good condition, w/ a few infidelity, and communication issues. In search of a new home, preferably one that has time for his shit. Need gone ASAP!!!! Must pick up. Call/text for pics. Lmfaoooo 😂😭😭

  • kfalcone2015 Kristina Falcone (@kfalcone2015) reported

    @MrTommyCampbell Ha. Yes I have had issues, but it never really took me long to get my money back. There are a lot of dishonest sellers on ebay. it can be frustrating. And I am an Amazon junkie, so I can understand the appeal...

  • anartdecodiva anartdecodiva (@anartdecodiva) reported

    @dogintheearth I *had* a never used ******, but I gave it away on a hangout podcast. The issue was why are there three male atheists for every female, not that I'm complaining! He said he was missing a ******, so I gave him mine! I suggested he sell it on Ebay for a few $$$.

  • techgu Michael Marohn (@techgu) reported

    @irawinkler @PayPal @AskPayPal @GoDaddy I stopped using PayPal when they got bought out by eBay, that was the down fall of their customer service.

So far I've been lead to believe sylvia will cover it & all I do is find myself watching the news ending up never getting paid

  • otaku_old Hideaki Annoying (@otaku_old) reported

    @realRiceKun @towerofshandor They take fansubs or do auto translations from whatever rips they find online. It’s like buying a low grade dvd that has poor compression issues. They get away with selling them on eBay since there is a loophole on “imports”

  • unitambo 🌞Phillip Somerville (@unitambo) reported

    @Ebay 🤖 customer service. You-are-not-a-problem. You-have-been-terminated. You-do-not-exist. Have-nice-day. $100, poof!

  • BlackOtterBun B1NKY Ⓥ @NFC @CFz (@BlackOtterBun) reported

    @strillersthecat I've had similar with eBay/Facebook buyers. Just to know they got it and there's no problems would be nice. I've had people message me daily for a week when arranging a sale but after I've sent it they can't even be bothered to type "got it, thanks".

  • Ridd1e Riddle (@Ridd1e) reported

    thanks guys for the EBAY link, I saw that but hoping to find him for a touch cheaper, which I was hoping someone could track him down in Japan. I rather use EBAY as a last resort, esp cause you can never be sure when it comes to recasting.

  • _marisacs_ marisa (@_marisacs_) reported

    im getting rid of my moms hand me down electrolux vacuum cleaner thats like 25 years old and i checked ebay to see if its a collectible and THEYRE GOING FOR LIKE $170 WTF WTF

  • jnmegatron jamie b2b2b (@jnmegatron) reported

    @TrentAbernathy @eBay i’m down

  • ToughBamboo Tough Bamboo (@ToughBamboo) reported

    @RebeccaJBradley @amwbooks I struggle with that problem. I this set up shops on eBay & Amazon to help. I’d need to live to 200, and stop working to read the books. I might just read the foreword and cover notes of each book. Then do another swoop on only chapter 1 of each. Then selected Chapters, etc

  • pantherrob1 Panther Rob (@pantherrob1) reported from Matthews, North Carolina

    @95KeepPounding @QCRRiot Surfing the net. Etsy, Amazon & EBay, lots of oversees stuff like China & Bulgaria to get the price down.

  • terryrobinson Terry Robinson (@terryrobinson) reported

    Tracked down a set of the Mage: The Ascension dice on ebay. I prefer not to think that I paid $80 for 10 dice but that I paid a mere 80 cents a die face which is practically a bargain. #mamily

  • NigelCramp Nigel Cramp (@NigelCramp) reported

    @wolfden_ph @cybereek Better shut down Ebay and Amazon

  • blikewater556 BLikeWater (@blikewater556) reported

    @AskeBay It seem that eBay is not accepting payments. I have tried multiple items and it won't accept payment. I know it's not my card, my girlfriend who is in a different state and using her own card has the same problem. She also tried PayPal, same result

    nothing phases me anymore lol god could come down right now and piss in my face and i’d bottle his piss up and sell it on ebay to some bible humper for $10K

  • NozuBozu Kelly H. (@NozuBozu) reported

    @AskeBay I wasn't sure of the best way to contact Ebay about this issue, but I was recently in the hospital for almost 2 weeks and discovered that someone stole many of my card info while I was intubated for ~7 days. 2 cards that were stolen/used were ebay giftcards.

  • wheresaddie addie wagenknecht (@wheresaddie) reported

    Pretty sure I accidentally shocked this women by telling her all my clothes are from second hand shops, ebay or hand me down freebies from friends donation bags...

  • mutiefreak Sean (@mutiefreak) reported

    Just visited a LCS that was selling a graded Spider-Gwen #20 for $60. That’s a great issue but, come on. That’s a massive ripoff. You can find that one on eBay and most backissue boxes for $1.50-4.00. Grading costs money but that book isn’t worth the sticker price.

  • therealrainfall Randy Treibel (@therealrainfall) reported

    @presquevu_ They are to an extent. The problem is OTHER places (Amazon, Ebay, etc) overindex negatives because algorithms don't understand context and it can really punish you.

  • CoryWagner811 Cory Wagner (@CoryWagner811) reported

    @wtfdoyoucare4 @eBay @AskeBay @FedEx @unsuckEBAY @eBayNewsroom Just wait til they damage a package! What you have to go through because you bought postage thru eBay is horrible! They claim it's on ebays account and eBay won't help you out saying it's a FedEx problem!

  • DxnDxvid LA MALA VĮDA (@DxnDxvid) reported

    They shut ******** down so she using eBay

  • therealijn therealijn (@therealijn) reported

    @atari2600hero Can be a problem purchasing cases for Huawei but eBay usually comes up with something.

  • ZowCardBreaks Jeff (@ZowCardBreaks) reported

    @ChecklistsforUS @Bluejaysfan173 For my lower dollar eBay sales, I offer $.99 PWE or 3.99 BMWT, they get to choose- I think my issue rate is about 1%

  • cerberus0444 Christina💋✨🖤✨💞 (@cerberus0444) reported

    @RikiRachtman To be honest I learned how to fix a broken tooth myself watching YouTube. You can buy almost any dental supplies on EBay. Not saying anyone should do that though.

  • ablesisterz ❄️ (@ablesisterz) reported

    @banana_crisis You can get a switch lite which is about 100 USD less but that one can't connect to a tv or if your tech savvy you buy those broken ones for like 10 bucks on eBay and fix it and you got a brand new switch

  • Kit_Myotis Cyber Bat (@Kit_Myotis) reported

    @DexTheDragon ohhh true didnt think about that. you might br able to sell it on ebay or something. theres lots of folks out there like me who love restoring and fixing stuff as a hobby. i have so many tags to watch for broken, untested, for parts etc. got a busted snes coming next week :D

  • sedgleytruck Matthew Riley (@sedgleytruck) reported

    To the scruffy **** that’s just bought a Nintendo switch for £200 using my eBay + Paypal accounts and collected it from the Argos in Derby - I hope you get run over by a bus and die a slow painful death... #karmasabitch

  • empire_of_dust_ Empire of Dust (@empire_of_dust_) reported

    Just received the issue of BLACK MASK I bought on eBay and it's marvelous. More pics later after I finish working.

  • MJRVex MajorVex (@MJRVex) reported

    @JenMsft I wanted a PC, but couldn't afford one so I gathered parts from thrift shops & free "broken" PCs and built one (IBM). I used it to start learning a few basic languages & signed up with ebay - sold a bunch of stuff to buy new PC parts, software...and just went from there.

  • BigKidsKollect BigKidsKollect (@BigKidsKollect) reported from Town of East Lyme, Connecticut

    @ac_ledesma @WatchTheBreaks SEOs are key for sales but also the downfall of a legit search. Everybody wants to key word but not know what they are selling. If eBay/selling market would allow a downthumb or some other way to show that click bait titles will get you pushed down the SEO standards I’d be for it

  • trog69 tom rogers (@trog69) reported

    @reading_while @ChicagoLocal134 @RyanKFerguson @Wendys_Garden I'm donating to the ACLU. Just a note that I received a pair of new speakers from eBay and one had a defective tweeter. Instead of the cost of shipping them back, they just sent me another pair of speakers. They were $350/pair, down from the $450 they usually sold for. Happy!

  • rees_kristian Kristian (@rees_kristian) reported

    This item cannot be resent as I is a one off item sold on eBay by a private seller hence my total disappointment plus I am not sure why the seller would just replace and take the financial hit when it was broken by @RoyalMail. I have already completed the generic online form.

  • Psshaw Marissa (@ the RAWRing 20s) (@Psshaw) reported

    @TheNazzaro Problem is when it dies and you realize you‘re better off going to eBay than Wacom themselves, alas

    @BasildonCoverUp @AccusedToo Pretty cheap but exceptionally handy when gangstalkers are at work. Spypen was £6.00 on Ebay Hidden Camera Detector around same price, this one do exactly same as £200 spyfinderpro Will not let down. I tried it successfully

  • cardiff4life David J Young (@cardiff4life) reported

    @RhydBowPhill @eBay_UK @eBay @adidasoriginals @adidasUK @adidas @ConsumrRightsUK Definitely fake. Had same issue from ebay before. Got a refund and never used them again for trainers
