      Ebay, a website known by pretty much everyone. Whether you want to buy it or sell it, you do it here.

      In the past I have used Ebay to find and buy many bargains. My concern with the website is that the larger it has become, the more it attracts people who often contribute little to the community in a positive manner.

      It used to be a website where people would look to sell their second hand goods that they no longer needed. You would do a search and find any number of bargains. The


      popularity of the site has encouraged businesses to sell directly on ebay and convinced any number of wannabe internet entrepreneurs that ebay is the place to realize this dream.

      This is not completely a bad thing, it has however started to clutter the site with, in my opinion, plenty of poor quality items and many poor quality sellers.

      It has also attracted the type of person who is unfamiliar with supply and demand concept behind setting a price with auction selling, who believe that just because they set up an auction, they are certain to ...


      • create a bidding war and therefore set a stupidly high price for what is an average at best product.

        The website has also started to attract buyers that have little concept of how to bid in order to secure a bargain. If the price is low and the auction has several days or hours to run, there is little point bidding until the closing stages of the auction else the price is increased for everyone too early and needlessly so.

        The positives are that ebay still attracts people that have no real concept of how

        to set up an auction to attract interest, which means a good bargain can still be found. Also, the influx of businesses using ebay means you can search for and buy items that don’t appear to be easily available in high street shops in the U.K.

        Ultimately, I do still think ebay has a great purpose, I just wish that a closer eye was kept on the type of person using the site as each year it appears to move a little further away from the original website that was launched and loved by many.
