Fanteller has been selling on eBay since 2006, and has over 288,000 positive feedback, with a 99.4% current positive percentage. They definitely sell in high volumes, and do deliver on good product quality and customer service as their feedback suggests. This is also a Top-Rated store on eBay.
It’s not easy to become a Top-Rated store on eBay. You have to provide good quality items, accurate descriptions, excellent customer service, and fast shipping. And you have to do this day after day, month after month. So Fanteller has had a very successful and positive selling history on eBay.
While I would feel confident in purchasing from this store, it’s not a particularly enjoyable store to navigate through. They don’t have an organized store front like some of the other stores that I have reviewed and seen so far. When you first enter their store, you just see a list of 88,000 items, with just an “other” category on the left side. As you navigate through a few listing pages, you also notice that there are no store categories there either. So if you want to see what they have in stock, you’re pretty much relegated to either viewing a very long list of items, or typing search entries.
Either way, you wouldn’t really get too far before getting frustrated and giving up. If window shopping is your thing, take a pass on this store. There isn’t much here in terms of entertainment value.
That being said, they do offer excellent deals on the vast inventory that they do carry in stock (if you are able to find them). If you do end up in their store, chances are that you found them solely by having their products come up in best match. If that is the case, and you are looking for a recommendation, I would say purchase from them in confidence, as their feedback score lends itself to a good selling history.
What I like or don’t like
Fanteller would benefit greatly by either completely revamping their entire storefront, or by just adding a bit of organization, or navigation via store categories. Buyers on eBay love to go from category to category to get a glimpse of what the seller offers in each, and that opportunity is lost when you have just one “other” category.
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.
