How Exposed Are eBay Sellers To Fraud

It has often been seen that buyers in eBay or any e commerce marketplace for that matter are a little apprehensive about the authenticity of the products they order and the payments that they make. Sniffing out fraud may have just escalated as a fundamental right of all those who are either first time visitors or frequent purchasers from those platforms. However, not many will be able to believe that things can often go the other way round where it is the sellers especially in platforms like eBay who have much to fear against fraudulent buyers.

Being one of those few platforms of sale where infinite varieties of products in their freshest form or used form are sold every single second, it is possible to invite an overwhelming variety of buyers some of whom may not be in the possession of best intensions. More often than not, it is the new eBay seller who have minimum experience in selling in the platform who suffer blows from these inauthentic purchasers. At present, there are at least a thousand innovative ways with which many of these fraudsters have managed to create dents in the otherwise prospering businesses in eBay.

At all costs, it is imperative for the sellers to keep their guards up in this matter and be very cautious about selling to people who sound dubious. Say for example, if a certain buyer wants the concerned seller to sell outside eBay, it is best to ignore such demands and be wary of the same buyer while monitoring his / her activities in eBay if they choose to return. There are also a number of geniuses who manage to dodge payments by creating fake payment receipts in favor of the sellers. So, having PayPal accounts secured is also very necessary and this is a matter that should never be postponed to a later date.
