Best Buy on eBay is the Best Buy online store selling on eBay. In this store, you’ll find everything that they sell in the Best Buy site, or in stores. Even with customers being able to purchase items in Best Buy stores, or their own website, this is still one of the most successful stores selling on eBay.

To be a successful store on eBay, you need to be able to satisfy a need or a problem. You can’t just throw some items up and expect to actually sell a large number of items unless you either offer the best prices, the best selection, or the best service and customer experience. So each store that you see with a large amount of sales or feedback has figured out a way to excel in one of these areas. Best Buy on eBay has over 225,000 positive feedback, so they are obviously doing something right.
There are two main benefits of shopping online – price and selection. You can find the same products in the Best Buy official site, and in their physical store locations that you will see in their eBay store. And their prices are actually the same in all three platforms. So why is their eBay store so successful? And why shop in their eBay store?
I would think that they main reason is that you have the best of both worlds when you buy from them on eBay. You get the Best Buy products (and even Best Buy in store pickup if you choose to), with the added benefit of eBay buyer protection. If for whatever reason the store does not take your items back, you have eBay behind you.
A second reason is to accumulate eBay bucks, or to use eBay and Paypal coupons. If you’re a member of the eBay bucks program, and you’re going to shop at Best Buy, you might as well earn your bucks for the purchase. That’s actually the reason why I’ve bought from their eBay store in the past.
When you list on eBay, you end up taking hundreds of pictures a day. And so you basically need to buy a new camera every 2-3 years. In my experience of shopping around, Best Buy seems to consistently have the best deals on cameras. That’s why I love their eBay store. You earn the eBay bucks for the purchase, and you get to pick it up from a local store 30 or 45 minutes later.
What I like or don’t like
This is Best Buy’s official store, so as you’d expect, their storefront is very polished and professional. Best Buy is also obviously an authorized dealer for all of the items that they sell, so everything does come with the original manufacturer’s warranty.
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. As does their 14-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back.
