eBay is an icon of the 21st century. It’s a global online marketplace that connects buyers, sellers and collectors selling millions of items at any one time. Once a relatively humble site for hobbyists, the success of eBay now attracts big-name retailers that offer exclusive deals and sales on eBay.
eBay’s categories include second-hand, vintage and new fashion, furniture, electronics, art, cars and other vehicles, books, toys, sporting equipment and more. Transactions are kept honest through eBay’s protection policies and buyers can take advantage of a range of benefits with eBay redemption codes, such as discounts on purchases and free shipping offers.
Individual shipping policies are set by the stores or sellers that use eBay as a middleman so shipping prices, delivery times and policies will differ greatly.
eBay sets out guidelines for suggested shipping policies, such as charging reasonable postage costs and regular dispatch times. All shipping policies must be clearly communicated on the product page. If you have a question about the shipping of a particular item you can message the seller or store using eBay’s secure communication portal.
eBay redemption codes are often made available. These can include free shipping codes.
Buyers are protected from fraud when shopping with eBay and paying through PayPal. If you believe that you’ve been a victim of fraud, false advertising or misleading information, you can lodge a complaint through eBay’s dispute and resolution centre. If you are found to have been a victim of fraud, you could be eligible for a refund.
Individual returns policies for exchanges and refunds are set by the sellers. All returns policies are clearly stated on the item listing. However, if they are not, you can message the user for their returns policies prior to making your purchase.Back to top

Using a PayPal voucher via eBay is super simple. All you have to do is follow these three easy steps:
It's easy to convert your flybuys points into a voucher you can spend at eBay. Simply follow the steps outlined below:
eBay offers a unique Best Price Guarantee which promises to ensure that you get the best price for new items when purchasing through eBay. This Best Price Guarantee, when buying a qualifying item on eBay, states that if you find it for less on any of the approved competitors' websites, eBay will beat the price by refunding you 110% of the difference.
Bidding isn't everyone's preferred way to shop, which is why eBay does offer many products in the Buy It Now section. However, it should be noted that bidding is the only true way to bag a bargain buy.
When shopping the Buy It Now products, you are paying exactly what the seller wants you to pay for a product. Whereas with bidding, it's anyone's guess what will happen. You just have to set yourself a genuine maximum bid and not give in to the temptation to up it on products that aren't worth the splurge in the heat of the moment.
Bidding is fun and gives you a bit of a rush, but shoppers can get a little too competitive, which is when overspending often ensues. Keep your head on straight and you're sure to secure some amazing bargains in a bidding war at eBay.Back to top
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
