The Candid Cow is the type of eBay store that has a little bit of everything, in a wide variety of categories, at rock bottom prices. It’s very easy to question the validity and authenticity of items in these kinds of stores. More often than not, when a price is too good to be true, it usually is. However, there are all sorts of businesses these days. A very popular eBay and Amazon business these days is to sell at close to cost (wherever the product is sourced from), sell in high volume, and make money on the rebates and discount percentages that you may receive from various sources. For example, credit card cash back rebates, Top-Rated seller benefits, etc.
So when you see a store like The Candid Cow that has thousands of different items, at rock bottom prices, check their feedback. That will usually tell the story. If they have a feedback percentage of less than 99%, they may be selling questionable goods. If they have a score of above 99%, and especially if they are a Top Rated store like The Candid Cow, then they are most likely an honest running business.
What I like or don’t like
Their storefront is very well organized, and professional looking. You have a graphic store menu, with product categories, as well as a left side text category menu. So it is very easy to navigate, and find what you are looking for.
I do appreciate their attention to detail in their listings though. Each listing has multiple clear and large pictures, so you really get to see in detail what you are buying. Their product descriptions describe the product in details, and provide all of the necessary information, like color, model, package content, etc.
Their excellent 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. And having a month to do so is quite convenient.
