I've bought and sold stuff on eBay for over a decade now. Recently I have purchased several amps along with some other electronics trying to save a buck or just because I can't find them anywhere else (older equipment). Out of my last 5 transactions for items over $50 I've had to return 4 of them. The most recent purchase is an amp I paid a couple hundred for was shipped without packaging material; loose in a box!!! They were thoughtful enough to include the invoice though.
This weirdly has been a huge issue. I've received lots of items packaged poorly or without packaging at all. It seems to have flared up in the past several years. I bust my ass to pack stuff I sell because I know that if the buyer isn't happy they will 99% of the time get their refund. Do people not understand that the USPS shipping process is not a leisurely gondola ride to their destination? I am giving up on buying electronics through private sellers on ebay.
