Amazon or eBay?

Ask a Question

amazon or Ebay? Which one do you prefer or do you shop elsewhere? I think both have great deals but dislike hidden added postage.

I use both, because each one comes with its own pros and cons. For example, I find eBay to be generally cheaper overall as well as many of the products coming with free postage and as a bonus I collect nectar points. As for Amazon, you get much more reviews on products which makes it far easier for me to decide on whether or not I want to purchase a particular product. So swings and roundabouts. 😀

Same. Although many things on eBay com from China. On Amazon it's not so prevalent.

I prefer Amazon and with Keepa, you can learn a lot about the products.

I only use eBay, I've boycotted Amazon because of how their warehouse staff are treated.

MartinBluck If you boycotted every shop/company that took advantage of their staff or treated them like dirt, there wouldn't be many places for you to go to.

I also use both frequently. I use ebay more probably for the small cheaper priced items, but I like Amazon prime for items I need / want more quickly. Tend to also use Amazon more for any expensive items too .

Definitely Amazon for me, there's just too many scammers on eBay.

And if you're selling, the fees are sooooooo high unless there's a promotion on.

Amazon for me mostly as i have Prime but also i hate paypal ive been stung in the past when i was a seller on eBay, if eBay offered other payment methods i would use more often as i hate giving Paypal any business after how they treated me in the past. a lot of sellers lie on eBay about their location and i have unwittingly ordered things which eventually come from China weeks later even though they said UK based. Hard to beat the Prime delivery speed and i am prepared to pay a little more to get quicker if necessary

I use Amazon. We have amazon prime so get free delivery, plus I get amazon vouchers from surveys, so doesn't normally cost me anything or very little when I order from there.

Whenever I have looked for items on ebay, normally baby stuff, I find that the prices are actually quite high, especially when you add on the postage, so I don't actually find that it is cheaper.

I use Amazon more than eBay since I have a Prime membership so I can get a lot of items delivered the same day or next day for free which is perfect. Like a lot of other people who have commented on here, I also use survey sites and get Amazon vouchers as rewards.

The postage is a nightmare isn’t it - amazon charge you for postage and packaging and eBay charge you for item and postage. Amazon use up too much packaging on their items

I use both. If I could only choose one it would be Amazon, Several times if I have had any questions or issues Amazon have been spot on. That said I often shop around with other retailers too. I think it is too easy to go straight to Amazon when you could find a better deal elsewhere.
