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, brand, etc. Once you get into a listing, the same menu carries over.
One thing that I really like about this store is the details they provide in their listings. Each listing contains all of the information that you would probably be looking for. The features, what the listing includes, requirements, and specifications, as well as additional comments. So they really go out of their way to provide as much information up front as they possibly can. With a store like this, you can really tell that they’re not just a hobby store selling random merchandise – they are hobbyists as well.
Another aspect of this store that I really appreciate is that they offer free shipping on orders above $69, and not free shipping across the board. I’ve discussed the cons of free shipping in previous posts, so I won’t go on about it here – but the gist of it is, free shipping just means more expensive shipping, not actually free. You’re not actually saving any money, and in most cases, your’re paying more. But with this type of incentive free shipping, you actually are saving money if you hit the free shipping limit.
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 30-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.
