I am still fairly new to eBay and I am still learning as I go. When I first started out as a buyer, I was often quick to bid on something I really wanted, without first taking a good look at the sellers feedback. You would think that would be an obvious first step, but from what I am hearing from other buyers, a lot of us make this mistake. Any time a purchase of mine has not been satisfactory, it has been from a seller with too many negatives. If I had just looked BEFORE I bid, I would have saved myself the headaches. Look first! If there are a lot of negatives, do not risk it, no matter how much you want what they are selling.
