Are you always looking for better deals online than you can find in stores? I recently went online to find a few books that I have been wanting for awhile. I looked around on a few different websites, including, Ebay and Amazon. I finally decided to order the one book “The Time Travelers Wife”, from Ebay.com. I checked several different postings on the book to make sure I was getting the book that was in the best shape.
I bought one that was $3.50, and the seller had written that it was in perfect condition, practically new. When I received the book, however, it had a tear in the upper left corner on the cover of the book and had definite wear and tear from being read. I was kind of disappointed seeing how the seller had told me it was in perfect condition. I’ve decided that I will not buy books online unless I see pictures of the exact book that I will be buying.
I do not like Ebay very much because the sellers rarely put pictures of the actual product that they are selling up online. I also don’t like that the seller is the one that determines the quality of the product. They can sell someone a product that they state online, is in perfect condition, but when the buyer receives it, it is in terrible condition.
My friend has also told me that she has bought something off of Ebay and never received the item at all. That is another negative about Ebay.com, you may purchase something and give the seller all of your information, but you may never receive the product. This can change people’s minds completely about ever going to Ebay.com.
So I highly recommend you going to Amazon.com if you want to buy it online, or just buying the product at the stores for regular price, even though you may be able to find it cheaper online!
