Perhaps I am not representative, but I am not an ebay fan. After about 8 experiences, all negative, I have sworn off them entirely. Perhaps some folks get great deals, but that has not been my experience. The last was an order for some spectacular “Tasmanian Blackwood veneer”. When it arrived it looked nothing like the picture and I went through all the grunt of sending it back. Money refunded, only lost about $12 for shipping, and not ebay’s fault, but I am done. It’s not worth the hassle, particularly the “auctioning” thing. Only my opinion, but I definitely have it.
