Is eBay "Broken" ?

Thursday, May 22, 2008 | 07:30 PM

The Consumerist thinks so: They note that it is now Completely Impossible To Sell A Laptop On Ebay.   

Then there is Paypal, the eBay subsidiary. Paypal may very well have the worst customer service of any major internet firm (thus bypassing Dell).

My experience trying to get changes made with them as a corporate partner was a trip into Alice in Wonderland. To say they were awful does not begin to explain it:  I picture their office as filled with people walking around in big floppy shoes, huge red noses, car-pooling to the office 20 at a time in a really tiny car.

We were long EBAY earlier this year;  I am glad that position is now closed.


I am curious: What are people's experiences with eBay/Paypal? Does anyone have any stories you want to share?

Go to town:
