    I was looking for an item on ebay (a DVD of a series) and noone seemed to be selling it but by looking for it on google, I ended up on this website.

    I thought I'd tell you about it as it has quite an intriguing way of working.

    Instead of being an auction site, the seller suggests a price and you can offer a price (lower than the suggested price, most of the time, of course) and the seller then declines/sends a counter offer or accepts. I just thought it was quite an interesting way of buying stuff. Maybe this kind of website will become popular or ebay will include a similar feature in the future...

    Don't buy off there unless it states UK. Most of the stuff seems tempting, I used it one time and I nearly got scammed! They usually sell at wholesale quantity, (only way you can make a deal) but its not really worth it after VAT, customs and admin charges.

    If you do buy from there, make sure the seller has sufficient feedback and don't pay by any service which doesn't have guarantee, for example western union, bid pay, etc.

    The time I nearly got scammed was when I ordered 10 mini ipods, that guy wanted a deposit, luckily I payed by paypal and I verified therefore the funds were taken out of that guy's paypal account after I complained.
