I'm not a huge CraigsList veteran but I've listed a lot on eBay every since '98. It used to be fun and profitable. Now it is a huge scam. The eBay+PayPal Buyer Protection system is a huge risk and ripoff for the seller. I wouldn't risk anything on eBay that you don't mind losing and having to issue a full refund to the buyer no questions asked after the scammer buyer reports any number of complaints. It's criminal how bad they treat the sellers now. Treat eBay literally like a garage sale and expect a certain amount of theft and loss. And if you don't have the money in your PayPal account to issue a refund, PayPal will do it anyway and put your PayPal account into negative balance and then sic the Credit Agency Gestapo on you. It's essentially legalized online highway robbery. You've been warned!
