                                                   FOR THOSE NEW TO THE WORLD OF EBAY HERE ARE SOME USEFUL TIPS ON PURCHASING.
FIRSTLY WHEN SEARCHING FOR AN ITEM A LITTLE RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET CAN SAVE YOU MONEY.
TAKE A LOOK AT FEEDBACK, THE LAST 6 MONTHS BEING A GOOD INDICATION
CHECK FOR EXCESSIVE P&P.
READ THE ITEM DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY AS SOME COULD BE MISLEADING.
A PHOTO OF THE ITEM TO SEE ITS QUALITY INSTEAD OF A PICTURE THEY MAY OF DOWNLOADED WOULD BE PREFERABLE.
CHECK RETURNS POLICY, SOME SELLERS ARE HAPPY TO REFUND OR REPLACE, OTHERS WILL NOT, SOLD AS IS, UNTESTED MAY NOT WORK WHEN THEY ARRIVE.
BEWARE OF PIRACY, ORIGINAL PACKAGING A GOOD INDICATION ITS AUTHENTIC. 
CHECK DISPATCH TIME OF INTERNATIONAL SELLERS AS THIS COULD BE SEVERAL WEEKS IN SOME INSTANCES.
USE THE ASK THE SELLER A QUESTION IF YOU NEED MORE INFORMATION ON AN ITEM.
IF THERE'S A MAKE AN OFFER OPTION USE IT.
THE WAY YOU BID IS UP TO YOU BUT HAVING A BID LIMIT IN MIND IS HELPFUL.


DO NOT RUSH YOUR PURCHASE, YOU MAY FIND THE ITEM CHEAPER WITH A LITTLE TIME SPENT ON SEARCHING, AND KEEP IN MIND THE FIRST TIP AS ITS SAVED ME PLENTY OVER THE YEARS.

HAPPY EBAYING
