What I like or don’t like
Their store navigation is fairly useful. Their left side eBay category listing is quite extensive. If you click on a main category, you then have multiple sub categories to choose from, like type, size, etc. Once you get into a listing, the same menu carries over.
One thing that I really appreciate about this store is the quality of their listings. Each listing has a large picture, so you’re not left playing a guessing game. It can get really annoying when you’re looking at a listing and wondering if it’s the right color, size, model, etc. With a lot of sellers, you just get that one small stock photo, so detailed listings like these are good to have.
Their attention to detail in their listings, and their stellar feedback really makes you feel secure in shopping from this eBay store. Bead of America does not accept returns though. However, if you receive an incorrect or damaged item, you are still covered by eBay’s 60-day buyer protection policy.
