E-Commerce: How to Buy and Sell on the Internet 95 Finally, watch out for listings in which the images outclass the description. The image might be stolen from another listing. Believe it or not, it happens. Take eBay seller 1gallery. The company sold a genuine Dragonfly Tiffany lamp for $50,000 on eBay, only to have another crooked seller lift the image, apply it to a phony listing, and burn an unsuspecting buyer for thousands. Fortunately, the crook was caught, but it took some real time and effort, according to 1gallery. Things to consider: · · · · · Does the listing include a detailed condition report? Does it feature technical specifications if it is a computer or consumer electronic? Is the product description clear, complete, and free of spelling errors? Does the description inform/educate? Are the description and title consistent? If the title says "Good," expect imperfections to be de- scribed. Other Considerations: Vendors' Policies Are they sensible? Do you have a reasonable amount of time to pay? Does the seller seem flexible? Are there options for payment and shipping? Do they accept online payment, such as PayPal or credit cards? Do they offer product guarantees and returns? All this probably seems like a lot of work, but it'll start to become automatic. It's really just good common sense.
