eBay is a great place to find almost any item that
you can imagine. Jewelry wholesale auctions are
quite common on eBay, and in many cases, you
cannot beat the deals that are offered here.
However, there are also many con artists that
operate through eBay, and you have to use caution.
Start by reading all of the fine details about the
jewelry wholesale lots that you are purchasing. If
you still have questions, send those questions to
the seller through eBay’s website. Make sure that
you keep all of your contact with the seller through
the website so that there is documentation.
Check out the person or company that is offering
the jewelry wholesale. Look at their ratings and their
feedback. Has there been any negative feedback?
If so, you may want to reconsider your options and
look into other auctions. If the feedback is all
positive, and the seller’s rating is high, doing
business with them should not be a problem.
Make sure that you are clear about shipment costs
and the shipment time frame, as well as the
payment options offered. Usually, the buyer is
responsible for the shipment costs, and this is
added to the total and paid before the item ships.
In the case of high ticket items, insurance may
be required on the item as well. The seller seldom
pays the shipping costs.
If the jewelry wholesale is a high ticket item, such
as jewelry that is bought in bulk or rare pieces of
expensive jewelry, you should strongly consider
using the escrow service that is recommended by
eBay. If the seller recommends any escrow service
other than the one that eBay recommends, you
might not want to do business with this seller – it
could be a scam.
Beware of sniper’s on eBay! Sniping is against the
rules at eBay, but a large group of people do it
anyway. Sniping is automatic bidding, which is not
against the rules, but the software or service is
instructed to place the highest bid in the last
possible minute of the auction – leaving no time for
anyone else to place a higher bid. Again, this is
against eBay’s rules.
Instead of sniping, place your first bid at the
maximum amount that you are willing to pay for
the jewelry wholesale lot. Each time the bid is
raised, your bid will automatically be raised – until
your limit is reached. This is not sniping, and it is
a perfectly legal way to bid on auctions at eBay.
