It is good to be careful. However, let us look at the advantages:
The person who is selling stuff on eBay has often started his/her own business. They get products from wholesalers. Unlike the store where you usually buy things you want or need, this person does not have the same overheads, like rent, phone and electricity bills and employees wages. He can therefore afford to give you the product at the kind of discount you cannot get from the store. I personally have sold a product to someone, still giving myself a 100% profit. The buyer couldn't believe the price he was paying for a brand new product. He thought it was a steal. I got my 100% profit, he got an excellent price he wouldn't pay anywhere else, a win-win situation!
Most people who sell on eBay can only sell if they have a good feedback rating. So it is good to look at the seller's ratings before you buy. You can see from comments others have made what the person is like and whether you can trust him or not. If the seller has even one negative feedback rating, don't buy from him. This will add to your peace of mind.
Most sellers also have return policies. Read everything on the listing's website before you buy. Use the "Question" feature to ask questions if you are not sure. You can also tell from the way the seller answers what kind of a person he is.
Then there is Paypal ... a convenient way to pay. No need to give your credit card number to strangers. This alone should make it much easier for you to buy on Ebay than anywhere else on the internet. And much safer. Sure, you will still get that jerk, but you have a chance to spot him before you buy from him.
Another advantage of buying on eBay is that you have such a great variety of products. What is more, you don't even have to leave your house .... That is the best! You can miss the commuting to the stores and the queues at the checkout. The heat (or the freezing cold) or the kids squabbling, and wanting things you don't feel like spending money on.
As for selling on eBay ... won't it be great to work from home and sell products that you find wholesale and that others ship for you? You can build up a full time income and even automate most of your sales.
Yup, eBay is a winner!
