I must admit I am still a little hesitant when buying from eBay, even after all these years and many, many transactions. I mean some sellers I do feel comfortable buying from, you know those with thousands of sales, but smaller individual sellers or new sellers, leave me feeling a little nervous.
I was looking or some second had photography kits, including some lights, a light sensor and a couple light boxes for a project I am playing with. I found pretty much what I was looking for at a great price, but it was from an individual seller, obviously just selling unwanted items of their won. So their selling history was pretty limited.
Postage wasn’t too expensive although there wasn’t much information about what type of eBay courier they were planning on using. As some of the equipment is quite fragile I want to ensure that the kit will get to me in good condition. And some couriers in my experience well; they don’t understand the meaning of the word fragile!
Anyway my PayPal payment went through yesterday and hopefully my stuff will be dispatched. Just have to wait and see, fingers crossed it’s in good condition and that I bought the right thing! Now football won’t be taking up my weekends I have decided to get more use out of my digital camera and have a good practice. There is so much I have to learn yet and I don’t want to just focus on landscapes, hence the light box. Anyway I will let you know how I get on.
