Almost everything I buy in support of my hobbies and interests is aquired
through ebay listings. I would prefer to buy models through the D4C auction. However, this is seldom possible because as a furriner, no longer with a $USD checking account, PayPal is now my only option. So there is that.I can honestly report that in the several thousand purchases I have made from both private sellers and retail businesses in many parts of the world accessed through ebay and since my registration on that site in 1998, I am right now unable to report any problems experienced that were not quickly and pleasantly resolved.
So few are these that I cant even recall the specifics of these at the moment.
I have bought from many counties around the world without difficult situations arising. That, is my experience.
