    Perhaps better suited for Online Shopping Forum?

    I've been buying things from eBay for many years.

    Personally, when I see a seller with 38437 and 100% feedback rating who's been an eBayer since 2006: I consider that to be a safe seller to buy from.

    Thanks for your feedback. Just thought I'd see who has had experience here with their store.

    Over 38,000 feedback at 100% ... If you're seriously that paranoid, perhaps you shouldn't be buying your fragrances from ebay.

    If a seller has 500+ @ 100%, they're safe... don't ask, just buy

    If you gave a link to the seller, I could see if I've purchased from them or not. Hard to tell off the top of my head.

    Part of the reason I ask is related to this thread, specifically post #15, but hey, feel free to pile on if I'm wrong:

    I haven't purchased much fragrance off Ebay - figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Point taken.

    12 posts vs 38k feedback... probably just bad QC, also they reformulated DHI and I believe the juice color changed.

    As a follow up, people willingly give out bad feedback on eBay. Your description better be accurate and product better be described perfectly or you won't be successful on eBay for long.

    Just moved it - thanks for the tips.

    Unadan - I'm in the same boat - still learning about Ebay. And I've been in this hobby for a LONG time now. It's not a cake-walk - people do get burned. No harm in asking, because feedback numbers are not entirely obvious in staying away from scammers. I tend to use other criteria for determining trust, because feedback interpretation is so NOT straightforward.

    Without even checking their store.. what are they selling? What do they typically sell?

    i ask this because I've had a similar experience where I bought a fragrance from someone with over 10,000+ items sold and 100% feedback. The thing is, they were a drop shipper of cheap household items, hangers, baskets, drapes, bedding. They just do happened to get a hold of a fake bottle of Aventus through one of their connections.

    Do your own research and buy through PayPal. There is virtually no risk that way.
    Current Top 4
    Creed Aventus - The One EDP - Aqua Di Gio Profumo - Chanel Platinum Egoiste
