eBay’s website and app are broken. I’ve never experienced so many glitches on any platform. I’ve reached out multiple times and never had my issue resolved. Just today, on the home page of my app it states that I have 2 items to ship, so I click on the notification and it brings me to a page that states: “You have no items to ship.” That’s eBay folks! If it wasn’t so infuriating it would be hilarious. Their IT department and developers are embarrassingly incompetent and fail to create the most basic user friendly functionality.
The glitches are endless, even after closing the app, delete/reinstall they remain. If you’re a seller like me, you know the excessive waste of time this platform has always been. I get notifications in one section of the app and get the same notification in my messages box, sometimes once again on the page. Three notifications, a great opportunity to time sink your productivity. Nope, already got that notification you brain dead invalid. The message box is for yup you guessed it MESSAGES. It’s littered with more trash, including advertisements from eBay lol, it’s shameless on eBays part. It gives me notifications for items completely unrelated to my interests let alone actually watching. I could write a book on the glitches but I think you get the point. Reading an app update about bug fixes always cracks me up because they never actually fix them and even when you tell them, they just placate you and say “we’re so sorry”, but they’re not. Probably don’t even remotely care because if they did they would actually fix it.
Selling items and creating postings consistently crash and burn wasting even more time. An innumerable amount of fake sellers and scammers and eBay does nothing even after I report them.
Let’s face it if we didn’t get so much traffic none of us would even use it lol. That being said, today was my last straw, I’m over it and doing business elsewhere, with someone that’s actually competent and doesn’t treat it’s sellers second rate and expendable. eBay doesn’t protect you from anything regardless of their guaranteed policies either so keep that in mind. It’s all trash, all they care about is their bottom line like the rest of the soulless corporate machines ruining the world. eBay is like a dog that barks all the time, never listens, and takes a dump on your bed but still gives you puppy dog eyes hoping it will make it all ok...but it doesn’t and the smell never fully goes away.
I was really disappointed in eBay’s decision to pull some of Dr. Seuss’s children’s books from its listings. I think the culture in America, corporate or otherwise, has given in enough to these irrational demands to rewrite our history. I also think the decision to take this course of action without being given evidence of blatant racism in Seuss’s books but rather critiques of alleged overtones found by modern critical race theorists is a scapegoat move on the part of eBay to avoid taking part in a larger discussion. I have found it to be true that people who rarelysee specific prejudice in media but instead feel that certain offensive but obscure messages are being conveyed subliminally are actually projecting their own prejudiced thoughts onto someone else’s work. Seuss wrote books about environmental conservation and social responsibility. I highly doubt he was taking the time to work cheap shots at other minorities into his stories. Were some of the conventional wisdom depictions that he used then be considered stereotypes today? Maybe to some. Would anyone, including himself, have thought the same thing when these books were being published initially? No. Does he deserved to be judged and censored by today’s ludicrous standards? Absolutely not.
eBay used to be one of my favorite apps but I can not support a company that enables cancel culture. The fact that eBay is removing Dr. Seuss which has been in publication for over 80 years but will continue to sell Nazi hate publications on their site as well as memorabilia shows me the double standard of trying to appease extreme leftist. Cancel culture has gone too far and has become a joke. 2/3rds of the American people do not back what is happening with censorship or publication. We are very close to losing the right to free speech in the form of published content. You will not gain a single penny more from myself and hope the majority of your customer base will boycott as well.
I would use EBay all the time for stuff thinking I was getting a “good deal” only use EBay if you plan on bidding on something for auction. The reason for giving it 3 stars is cause the customer service is trash. If you want to bid on something make sure you actually want it and make sure the seller seems legit because if you basically buy something and the seller say “ well I sent the package and it says delivered “ when you never received the item nor did you want a refund just the same item.. Ebay will tell you the seller is right. I would shop at amazing for daily stuff and for probably better made stuff. I would only use EBay once again .. only for bidding !
I rated Ebay only 3 stars due to your horrible job of stopping and banning shill bidders in the sports card market! Ebay doesn’t care due to the profits they make on the inflated final sale prices. Many people in the sports and non sports card market are concerned with this, and are looking to purchase cards by other means...The card market as you know has inflated prices that have skyrocketed since covid19, and buying these cards at high prices are hard as is without having to deal with rampant unregulated shill bidding that Ebay refuses to police! Please do a better job catching and banning these culprits...otherwise you will lose several honest customers!
It all seems fine except for two things. Why do you give the sellers my info because I look at one of their items? I could see saving on a watch list and giving sellers my info. I’m just getting tired of all the offers I get because of selllers knowing who looked at their items. Almost like an invasion of my privacy. Also, sellers with the ability to print shipping labels with tracking numbers. Seller shows tracking number to EBay and gets paid. Then, seller finally ships several days later. I think something should be done about that too. Amazon is looking better and better these days.
I feel very confident when ordering thru eBay so far to date every time I have ordered something thru them I have 100% satisfied. I have had a few issues with some of the products I have ordered for various reasons an eBay has always left me walking away from the situation completely satisfied in one way or another so if you are questioning ordering thru them let me assure u that they are very reliable. An I haven’t been paid or compensated for this review just FYI I’m just a very happy customer. Thanks eBay for always working with me an leaving me with no worries when ordering!!!
I have paid in advance for few items but didn’t receive them for # 5-6 months. I have tried to contact the seller and no good solutions at all. They blamed the COVID and didn’t want to pay for the refund. I couldn’t contact EBay for help and felt very frustrated. At a moment, I didn’t think of buying anything on EBAY because of the long delivery and also loosing money. Bye bye EBay. I’m thinking of buying things on Amazon. It’s a bit dearer but it has a fast delivery, better quality and not to worry that I’m going to lose money. Bye bye again.
If you are making an app that you want people to use to make purchases especially multiple purchases then make it user friendly to do so. The continued inability to “request an invoice” to get combined shipping or discounts from a seller is absolutely stupid. This shortfall has been identified by many people and yet it has not been fixed- listen to the buyers and the sellers and get this corrected or you will continue to loose customers to other resale websites that do listen!
eBay is a tried and true online selling platform. Everybody knows how safe a reliable it is to shop and sell here. Despite a small amount of scammers you may face it is a totally safe a verified way to shop online and find your most sight after items at reasonable prices. I’ve been using eBay since I was about five or six years old, I’m twenty-five now and I’ll be using eBay until I lay down for my last night of sleep!
