From RC planes to RC boats and cars, model kits, building supplies, and software, they are pretty much a one stop online hobby shop. With over 13 years of selling experience, you can buy in confidence knowing that you will get what you paid for, from a seller that is knowledgeable about the products. Their extensive feedback of about 300,000 positives, as well as a 99.8% overall score definitely suggests that they are both selling quality merchandise, but also providing excellent customer service as well. And their Top Rated seller status backs that up.
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 PowerHobby has had a very successful and positive selling history on eBay.
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.
Another thing that I really like about PowerHobby-Online is the detail 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. And each listing has about 10 or 12 pictures, not just one stock photo. With a lot of sellers, you get that one stock photo, so you don’t really know what you’re getting. With their pictures, you see the item from all angles, and in every detail that you want to see.
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 1-day free shipping, as well as a 14 day hassle free returns process. So you get what you bought fast, and if you don’t like it, you can return it, hassle free, which really does make buying online much more convenient.
