If you aren’t familiar with the practice of eBay drop ship listings, sellers take items they can buy off Amazon.com, and list them on eBay for more. When an order is placed, they simply place an order with Amazon.com with the eBay buyers address as the shipping address. All this is done behind with automated software, making it very easy for these sellers to list tons of items and handle sales with a minimum of effort.
But of course, they just make money from unsuspecting buyers that don’t know to look directly on Amazon.com for a cheaper price. Returns can be difficult, and you will get no support from the seller typically. We recommend you stay away from cheesy looking listings like these on eBay. But sometimes they can be rather funny in how inept the listings look.
We also do sell some of our more popular parts directly on eBay.
Much of the time when people list products from our Amazon.com listing on eBay, they just copy everything over. But sometimes, seemingly to attempt to make them more attractive, they embellish them. I found two such embellished listings that makes it clear the people doing this are just doing it en-masse and don’t really check the content for accuracy or to see if it makes sense.
Okay, great, top seller and fast shipping. Does anyone really believe claims like that anymore? It’s like adding L$$K or RARE! to an eBay listing title. Personally, I avoid all listings like that. And what exactly do this icons mean in the context of a product like this?
But now look what they’ve done to the content?
I got a chuckle out of that. I’m guessing that no-one is really buying from listings like that.
