Beware of bulk sellers of grey market items on Ebay. I've been bit. Never again.
eBay is full proof..
Buy only items that are coveerd by eBay buyer protection program. Pay via eBay through PayPal.
If item comes in bad. Click to return item, item not as described, item broken etc... seller approves claim and eBay provides you a label at sellers expense. It arrives they refund.
If anything does not go as scheduled above eBay will step in and take care of it. Its not instantaneous but it always works.
Have bought several items from RU and Asian listings that never showed up. Knew it was likely going in, in all cases eBay ponied up (they hold questionable sellers funds until item is delivered)
Have bought several items that were just not right, in all cases the seller refunded or eBay sucked it out of them and ponied up.
go through eBay for all returns. If sellers are vague unresponsive and or make demands., let eBay handle it...
Admittedly, I have never been bit, but have complete confidence with the 6 or so grey market sellers I have ordered from, Big Value Inc being my favorite among them.
Yes, some are bad, however, I don't think BVI is necessarily one of them. Even GetItDigital, whom I was skeptical about with the last $1,999 deal has turned out to be great to work with.
As TeT said, if anything goes awry, let eBay handle it.
I hope this helps!
