      Hello all,

      I am debating as to whether to open an e-bay store or not. Before I go forward, I want to get some input with a simple question. Do you prefer to bid on items of interest?; or do you like the firm price offer, buy it now?

      I just want to get an overall 'feel' from here so that I can determine the best way to approach this since so many of you buy from me.

      Many thanks for your input!

      You may e-mail me or PM me should you wish to do so.

      Tom,

      I prefer the buy it now from stores, if there are multiple copies of one item. I really miss your online store by the way.

      Keep em separated!

      I buy 95% of all my online purchases from e-bay.
      The main reason is ebay buyer protection program.
      I'm a frequent buyer (almost every day) and parcels from stores have tendency to "miss a mysterious way"
      F.e. today's morning I claim Leading Edge Decals for a purchase, paid January 17th, but still did not received.
      Opposite to this - I successfully receive about 95-97% of my e-bay parcels and get refund for missing ones.
      And, of course, it is much easier to find and "watch" something in a single shop (e-bay) than jumping couple of dozens manufacturers sites.

      Best regards,
      Eugene
