Oh , and when I contacted ebay about this , they said they are not involved !! They just provide the place to sell . it is up to you to work it out !!!

THen why do they have all these rules and say they don't tolerate this and that !!??

Not sure what happened but my posts showed up back wards ! This one was first !

This is my first attempt to sell on ebay. I am trying to sell a kenworth truck sleeper . The high bidder never contacted me after many e-mails from me trying to get him . I tracked him down finaly ! He is in Mexico !! THe second high bidder is in Austrailia !! Are these guys for real !?!? Starting to think ebay is a joke !!

I have had good and bad luck on it.
High end / Big $buck$ items bad luck
$100- $500 good luck...

When buying I have had good luck. I did buy my first big $ Item this week. An new IMCO external steering system. We will see.

I've currently got a Paxton supercharger and a M1 Procharger up for bidding.
So far so good....people are asking questions, I'm answering, and the bidding continues! Of course we'll see what happens when it comes down to actually getting the money!!

I've bought and sold several things without any problems. Shipped stuff across the country and paid to have stuff shipped to me.
Doesn't mean I haven't heard some horror stories from other people.
Don't count on ebay helping you out. Use your best judgement and cross your fingers.
I always read the feedback on whomever I am dealing with.
Good Luck!

I have bought two high ticket cars on eBay and have been runner up on a few others. Some people treat it like a video game and see how far they can take it before owning it. I have had two sellers come back to me after their high bidders bailed, or vanished. Great exposure for the cost, but you may have to sort out the flakes. Also interesting to see cars reappear after being "sold" too. Lots of games going on, but still a powerful platform. Buyer and seller beware.

Tried selling my goped - over 1200 in it, almost perfect condition, new rings and gaskets, etc... couldnt get 400 for it

Some things sell better than others.
