What is the stance on ebay deals here nowadays? The reason I ask is because I was under the impression it was to be only high street type outlets, of which there are many on ebay now, who have a proven track record as a mainstream retailer.
I thought this was the case to stop spam from smaller self promo sellers and to help out potentially nightmare transactions where there is no "high street" name to go to. Note to everyone, someone with 10-20k can still be a relatively small time business, so self promo is potentially an issue.
There seems to be starting to creep in a bit of a free for all I have noticed. Deals that are either not from outlet stores (which are all well known trusted major sellers) or DOTDS from again non outlet sellers.
It's forgotten I think here that ebay do not verify their DOTDs really, so they can't verify authenticity or if the seller really has stock. It's an absolute minefield, especially as I have seen listed on here recently DOTDS from sellers with as little as 1k fb. So many people have problems with DOTDS that are not done by the named outlet sellers because sellers can't meet demand, or they are fakes, seconds or what not.
I guess I am just after clarification, is it a free for all on here now where any business can post or is it still restricted to the outlets whom have a "proven" high street backing.
As at the moment I am seeing a fair few deals pop up which are just deals fron top rated sellers, not high street outlets, nor are they easily verifiable as being legit.
