Their customer support (for buyers) is atrocious. I recently was scammed by a seller in China (Ok - I knew it probably was a scam from the start and only 22 bucks) but eBay could not have cared less - shuffled me off to Paypal who had a 90 minute wait time and was zero help as well.
I alerted eBay when the item was relisted by a new Chinese seller with zero feedback - same photo and text lifted from a legit US seller previously - and they left it up until someone else bought that one.
I've bought and sold hundreds of items and 99%+ of the time have a good experience with other members, but eBay itself is just a money machine and a monopoly with no customer support for you when things go south.
Just my $0.02 vent.
