Individuals who sell guitars or other products on eBay are not in physical danger since they ship products instead of meeting buyers in person. However, eBay has a reputation of favoring buyers during disputes, according to The Guardian.
Ebay sellers can lose money if a buyer claims a product was stolen or damaged. Another potential problem sellers can encounter on eBay is if customers dispute charges through their credit or debit card providers. By abusing chargebacks, unscrupulous customers can avoid paying for products they order on eBay. While eBay provides a dispute system, some high-volume sellers believe that this system unduly favors buyers, which puts sellers at risk of losing their products and payments.
