Can I trust them?

Generally you can. Under the Seller Details heading, there will be a link so that you can ask the seller a question. You should also look at the seller's feedback. Most purchasers will leave feedback and will say if the product or service was not up to scratch. If you pay through PayPal you may also be covered under the PayPal Buyer Protection Policy which will assist with resolving any disputes between the seller and buyer.

Shipping

You will need to look at each item's listing to determine if they ship to your destination, and what the cost will be. This can vary greatly. What may seem like a bargain may actually work out more once you factor in the cost of postage. If you are unsure, you can ask the seller a question.

Bidding

In order to make a bid on a product, you will need to register with eBay. Once you are registered and logged in, you are free to make a bid on anything you wish. Remember that any bid is binding. Once you have made a bid, you usually receive a daily email of items you are bidding on and their progress. You can also put the product on a 'watch list' and they will also keep you up to date on how that auction is going. On some products, there is a 'buy it now' price, so you can bypass the auction process and buy it immediately at that price. If the product will be listed on eBay Stores, then it will be listed at a set price.
