I wonder how many people simply use eBay to find what ever they want and then go to the seller direct. Without the fees on the item and the postage it has to be cheaper to buy direct, certainly everything I sell is on my web site cheaper than it would be if I sold it on ebay. I’ve not bought anything on there for months and months but have used it to find items and the sellers contact details are easy to find. Then if I need a similar item there’s not even the need to look on ebay, Google or anywhere else, if the seller has a website then I just look there or simply contact them and ask.
