    Default Ebay Vultures

    What do you think of people that buy stuff in bulk and sell it for double or triple the price on Ebay? I think that's one of my biggest pet peeve. I've been looking for a few things online, but it sold out in an hour, not even, it's really unfair for us who really care about the product...Just venting

    Yes they are out there and they make me mad because you see the same thing for triple the price.

    It ticks me off, but there is nothing illegal in what they are doing.

    I get so mad that every time i like something on beyond the rack, it is all "reserved" in the first 2 minutes. I am sure dealers are buying and reselling.

    The only problem I have is when I try to get on sites like Beyond the Rack, and everything is reserved within the first 5 seconds!!!!

    I don't have a problem with them selling it on eBay because...well...people will only do that if there is a demand for it. Its what the market will bear.

    ITA. and beyond the rack is the only website with all those problems. i contacted their customer service via e-mail a couple of times, no response or ack., which worries me, because what if i bought something and there was an issue with it??

    I've given up on Beyond the Rack...I won't buy from them at all. The only site I've purchased from and been satisfied is Gilt.

    I've bought some things off eBay but mostly I'm selling items on there...school books, shoes, some clothes.

    What is strange is I have ALOT of men who purchase my shoes because of some wierd shoe fetish thing. I think I got listed as a "preferred seller" on either some fetish website or forum because every time I put shoes on (cute ones of course) I get a TON of questions about them and whether I'll ship international.

    Oh yea I'm sure. Also the designer sales at Target go on sale the day of on Ebay, this is crazy... or the CLINIC shoes by Jeffrey Campbell. At least Solestruck.com tried to put a stop to it by only allowing people to buy 3...which is still a lot lol...but at least they know what's going on on Ebay. I know it is "legal" for the vultures to do so, but maybe companies need to regulate the number of things you can buy (of the same product)...but they would be the ones losing money hahahah Just a vicious circle I guess...

    IDK if this counts as Ebay vultures, but I was in a bidding war with someone yesterday
    and all of a sudden I got your bid has been canceled click on bids to see why, when I clicked on it, it said next to both of our highest bids...
    Seller has canceled all bids and ended auction early.....

    what happened? has this happened to anyone?

    Yes it has happened to me, either they did an illegal end to the auction, or they sold it ouside of ebay.

    Yes it has happened, I would think that it's mostly because they are also selling it outside, and it is a real disappointment for sure if you've been bidding on it for a while...Unfortunately there are no rules for that either :/
