ON EBAY YOU WILL BE OFFERED A VARIETY OF DVDS FROM VARIOUS SELLERS ACROSS THE GLOBE. THIS IS JUST A QUICK GUIDE ON WHAT TO LOOK FOR.

1.FIRSTLY, SET A SPENDING LIMIT AND STICK TO IT!!!. DON'T OVERBID ON A DVD, THERES ALWAYS OTHERS AVAILABLE!!!.

WHEN BIDDING PLACE A BID APPROX £1-£3 BELOW YOUR MAXIMUM PRICE AND ADJUST ACCORDINGLY AS THE AUCTION NEARS ITS END.

 BEWARE OF IMPORTS/COPIES. THEY CAN BE OF GOOD QUALITY AND THEY CAN BE TERRIBLE. MY ADVICE IS TO STAY AWAY FROM SUCH DVDS OR TO ONLY BUY THEM FROM AN ESTABLISHED EBAY SELLER WHO HAS BEEN A MEMBER FOR AT LEAST 2  YEARS.

3. DO NOT BID TO EARLY ON AN ITEM, INSTEAD USE THE  WATCH THIS ITEM  OPTION ON YOUR EBAY MENU AND DO NOT START TO BID UNTIL THE LAST 1-2 HOURS OF THE ITEM.THIS SHOULD ENABLE YOU TO GET YOUR DVD AT A REASONABLE PRICE.

3. BEWARE OF FLASH SELLERS THAT JOIN EBAY TO SELL A BULK LOT OF ITEMS QUICKLY!!!. THESE GOODS TEND TO BE BELOW PAR AND THE SELLERS FREQUENTLY WILL NOT RESPOND TO YOUR EMAILS AS THEY JUST WANT TO GET THE MONEY AND RUN.       ALWAYS CHECK A MEMBERS JOINING DATE.

THE USE OF THE BUY IT NOW OPTION SHOULD BE ONLY USED IF YOU FEEL THAT THE ITEM WILL SELL ABOVE THE BUY IT NOW PRICE(IN DVDS THIS IS UNLIKELY). FREQUENTLY THE BUY IT NOW OPTION WILL REPRESENT THE SELLERS TOP END ESTIMATE OF THE DVDS WORTH. IN THE CASE OF MOST DVDS, I WOULD AVOID THIS OPTION AS YOU ARE VIRTUALLY GUARANTEED TO GET THE DVD AT A LOWER PRICE.

ALWAYS CHECK THE DVDS CONDITION, I.E. NEW OR USED, AND MAKE SURE THAT IT PLAYS ON YOUR DVD!!.

SOME DVDS WILL BE FROM AMERICA/ABROAD AND WILL BE LISTED AS REGION 1.

MOST UK DVD PLAYERS ARE SET AT REGION 2 AND THEY WILL NOT PLAY REGION 1 DVDS.

THIS ISSUE DOES NOT APPLY TO COMPUTERS AS THEY CAN PLAY ANY FORMAT DVD.

4. FEEDBACK RATINGS ARE A GOOD WAY OF CHOOSING WHICH SELLLER TO TRUST. THE MINIMUM FEEDBACK SCORE THAT I STICK TO IS THAT OF 97% AND ABOVE.

 THESE TEND TO BE GOOD SELLERS WHO WILL RESPOND TO YOUR QUERIES ABOUT AN ITEM,HAVE GOOD QUALITY ITEMS AND ARE PROMPT  AT POSTING ITEMS.

THEY SHOULD ALSO HAVE A VERY POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM OTHER EBAYERS AND HAVE SOLD A NUMBER OF ITEMS ON EBAY WITHOUT INCIDENT.

 PLEASE BE AWARE THAT EVEN THE BEST SELLERS CAN GET A NEGATIVE RATING AS WE HAVE ALL HAD THE BUYER FROM HELL WHO GIVES A NEGATIVE RATING NO MATTER WHAT THE SELLER MAY DO TO RESPOND TO THEIR COMPLAINTS ABOUT AN ITEM.

IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY WITH YOUR ITEM CONTACT THE SELLER AND TRY AND RESOLVE THE SITUATION.PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ISSUING AN IMMEADIATE NEGATIVE COMMENT AS OFTEN THE SELLER WILL RESPOND AND ADDRESS YOUR CONCERNS.REMEMBER THAT FEEDBACK WORKS BOTH WAYS. IF THE SEELER DOES NOT RESPOND WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME THEN YOU MUST CONTACT EBAY AND PAYPAL.(SEE BELOW)

IF IN DOUBT ASK THE SELLER A QUESTION, AND IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THE RESPONSE THEN CHOOSE ANOTHER SELLER THAT YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE IN DOING BUSINESS WITH.

5. IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE IN ANYWAY BEEN CONNED ON AN ITEM ENGAGE EBAY AND PAYPAL(DISPUTES CONSOLE) AS THEY CAN GET YOUR MONEY BACK EVEN IF THE SELLER IS REFUSING A REFUND.

LASTLY, GIVE US SMALL SELLERS A CHANCE!!!! AS WE GENERALLY TEND TO BE MORE RESPONSIVE TO BUYERS AND OUR POSTAGE TIMES CAN BE QUICKER!!!!

GOOD LUCK BIDDING!!!!

I HOPE THIS HAS HELPED!!!
