Default Worst Ebay categories to sell or buy

I listed a Star Wars Lego set (used) and immediately got 3 offers. Two of the offers had feedback of 1900+. I looked at the feedback they had left, it was horrible. 30+ Neg/Neutral left by one and nearly 100 left by the other. Problems seem to follow these Lego people around.

I sell mostly games & kids books on Ebay. Everyone pays right away (even those with 0 feedback) and I only have one problem about every 300 sales.

Cards buyers as we all know, pay slower and like to complain. Not to mention a rather high deadbeat bidder ratio.

It got me thinking what other categories have higher percentages of bad buyers?

i really only tool around with cards and sports memorabilia, so I don't know much. I sold a few SDCC exclusives and got lots of attention AND people paid immediately. so I guess i'll throw comics out there as a positive area. Though, I have not done it enough to know for certain- Indy or some of the other comic guys might be able to share good/bad/ugly on it.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

I've a hada realtively hard time with used video game sales. Same problems with card buyers as in lots of 0 assessment people don't pay, and will get the "the disc is too scratched up to play i want a refund" excuse, get the game back and its in near mint condition.

Pain in the @$$, especially when shipping costs a little more for a video game than a card.

I would say the Personal category. I have been greatly disappointed with such products as Imaginary Girlfriend and the Blind Dates. I always neg sellers for item not as described.

Actually that's how I got her. I sold myself off as a 6' 3 underwear model. She paid but I clearly stated no returns. She filed a claim, it went to an ebay dispute but in the end I won.

Coin collectors are generally a great bunch. I sold entire collections for my lady and her sister once. I accidentally sent a $200 coin to a guy who bought a $60 coin. He forwarded it to the correct buyer for me and still left me great feedback.


Book buyers are ludicrous. I figured "very good" worked for something you could read and was bound well. Uh no. This was on Amazon incidentally.
