Over the last couple of weeks I've won 2 Ebay auctions with a combined seler feedback of 1 (yes 1 guy had 1 feedback, the other 0). My question is , do you pass over items if its a zero feedback bidder?

I bought this 13 MOC lot from a zero feedback bidder. Are they C-10 ? No. But for what I paid, i'll sell them all (see future F/S thread LOL) and make hadsome profit to feed my collection. It was up with a Buy It Now for a fair amount of time. I didn't see it as it posted. So people did pass it over.

Then of course the 3 Pack. I won this for $242!! A steal!!!

So whats your approach to no/low feebback sellers?

I think in recent times with the buyer protection in force on ebay it makes it easier to make those kinds of decisions knowing you can get your money back should the deal go wrong.

Years ago on ebay it wasn't so easy and I only gambled on amounts I could write off.

I won my first Blue Snaggletooth from a seller with 1 feedback for $60 bucks (or thereabouts) and he was c9.5 any day of the week, I was very surprised people didn't at least try to bid it closer to 100 bucks!

It can pay off though as you have shown.

I've had better deals recently with low feedback sellers (0-20) than those who have been doing it for awhile. Most lower ones ship faster and more friendlier than others. Guess they are just trying to get their ratings up, but I'd buy from them more because you can get killer deals cheap, as you've shown John.

John - Nice pickups on the MOC's! Any chance you can hold that Sandpeople or Bib Fortuna for me? Very Happy

I've seen some 0 feedback sellers that had some good deals but have been to gun shy to take a chance. Guess I should start if it's not too risky. A while back a 0 feedback seller had a decent looking early bird display up. I watched it and it sold for next to nothing with one bid. Can't remember what the selling price was but I know it was low - like around $20.

Some great deals there Darthberizing, personally I don't mind what there feedback is. If I want some thing then I'll buy it. I'm sure I seen the MOC lot but didn't know enough about them that I felt confident enough to make a bid. What is that loose AT AT driver?

Nice Canadian toy fair / multipack Leia cheaper than a ROTJ figure...

Low feedback seller + uninformed bidders = low low bargain basement prices!

WOW! Even if half of her has a tan and the card is rough, that was a hell of a deal someone landed. Just checked their completed listings and was shocked to see the ESB Wampa upper right corner case was listed higher than the Leia. Goes to show that the odds and ends stuff is worth more. lol!
