    There's nothing wrong with buying second hand. As long as you trust the retailer and know your rights you should be fine. I'm not an Ebay user though (I'd rather just buy a game straight away than having to bid for it), so I don't know how reliable they are.



    I never add friend codes.

    Just check if the user has positive feedback. 90% are the good ones.

    I think if you limit yourself to people who only have 100+ feedback or 100% positive, you're severely (and unnecessarily) limiting yourself.

    I've been buying & selling on eBay for 8 years, but I don't do a ton. I'm just approaching 60 feedback. I had one loser who gave me negative feedback after I gave him neutral, accusing me of "maliciously leaving neutral feedback", as if there's anything malicious about neutral (I did it because he charged a ridiculous amount of shipping for what amounted to a 39-cent stamp, and took FOREVER to mail it out). So as a result of that one negative mark, I'm at 98.3%. I take my auctions very seriously though... pay fast when I buy, ship fast via UPS w/ tracking #s and the whole deal when I ship. And I've gotten lots of comments on my fine packing skills.

    There are douchebags on eBay, but don't judge someone solely by their feedback score. Look into it more before you write them off... the person to avoid might be the jerk who left them the negative feedback, not them themselves.

    That's completely understandable. I don't understand how one seller can charge $8.00 to ship a game while a different seller will only charge $3.00 to ship?

    Sellers pad the shipping since they don't pay eBay fees based on the shipping cost, only the sell price. So you might have a game that sells for $35 with $5 shipping, and another that sells for $20 with $20 shipping. The latter pays much lower final auction fees.

    It's still slimey, though. I use the automatic shipping calc. That way I'm not screwed over taking a risk on some flat-rate shipping amount, and also the buyer doesn't feel like they're getting scammed on shipping costs. It also allows me to offer multiple shipping methods and the buyer can just choose which one they want when they pay.

    Personally, I think that eBay is another term for Scamsville. I have never bought anything from that site, but I know of friends who have had very bad experiences in the past, so I would avoid that site at all costs.
