It was a pretty useful venue when it first came out but it has steadily
deteriorated to the point that I hardly ever use it.  Their fees have become
outrageous.  I sold a purse for my daughter last month....fees (including
paypal) were over $30.
I have been seriously burned twice by their buyer
protection "services".....will never trust them again.
I am also really
annoyed by all the "tagged" ads.  Honestly......$795.00 ABS hubcaps to fit a
Triumph Herald????

Happy Holidays List!
tried getting on E-bay to sell LOTS of my spare TRIUMPH
parts, but one had to
also join Pay-pall (P-P). Well there was a mistake made
at P-P & I tried to
fix it. I was even able to 'Talk to a REAL person' to be
told that the problem
was resolved. Long story short, the problem was NEVER
resolved & I've haven't
dealt with either of them again.

I'm not going to
get into who gets what % on
selling. money exchange, or shipping. I feel if a
mistake can't be solved
after talking to a person, then I really can't trust
that person/system. This
is why I love this list, because if you have a
problem, then you can (98% of
the time solve it, of course off line). I've
NEVER had a problem with ALL the
people on this list. In fact, it's just the
opposite. I'll get the part before
I have even gotten a chance to write out
the cheque (I NEVER write out a
cheque until I know the money is in that
checking account to cover the
cheque.). this may take a couple of days &
that's why I may receive the item
before I get a chance to send the cheque. In
fact, I'll go as far as saying
that I'll trust this list more than some of my
'family members'. I consider
this list as a VERY Close Family. 

I am in the
process of GREATLY down sizing
my belonging & 65% of that is TRIUMPH items. so
to you lookers out there,
contact me off list. The rest of you all, Happy
Holidays to you & your love
ones (weather its a person or your TRIUMPH)!
