After selecting an item, click the “Buy it Now” button for instant purchase or add the item to your cart using the “Add to Cart” button (if you have multiple items in your cart and plan to pay for them in a single transaction).
Payment and Shipping Address Selection
Choose PayPal as the payment method and select the card from which the funds will be deducted. Then, choose the shipping address below. Verify the item, quantity, and shipping method. Check the final cost on the right, review everything, and click the “Confirm and Pay” button.
Order Placement and Payment Confirmation
After you placed an order, you will receive a notification that payment has been successfully processed and information about the estimated delivery date. When the item you purchased will be shipped, you will receive an email with tracking information and estimated delivery date.
Things to Remember
If a buyer won the auction and fails to pay for the item within 7 days, the seller will send him a claim. If the item remains unpaid for several more days, the buyer will receive a warning from eBay. If there are 2-3 warnings within a short period, the account may be closed with a prohibition on re-registration. Any accounts you open again will also be closed. If you have purchased an item but changed your mind, contact the seller, apologize, and request a cancellation. You could even offer compensation. However, it is best to avoid taking this path altogether.
Household electrical appliances sold in Europe are designed for 230V, unlike the usual 110 volts are used in the United States, and they have a different plug type. The exception is all household electronics such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, wireless speakers, and small household appliances like electric shavers, epilators, and trimmers, which operate on a universal range of 110-230 volts. For these items, you only need a cheap plug adapter. There are no such issues with electrical goods sold on eBay.com.
