I just tried a service from Ebay that I didn’t know about until about a week ago. It is called Ebay express. I was looking for a book, but didn’t want to pay full price for it. As I usually do, I went to Ebay to see if there was a copy for seal at a low price. I was hoping that there was a new copy of the book since you never know what someone did with it. (remember the coffee table book that George Costanza brought into the bathroom?).
I noticed a listing for Ebay express on their home page. What a perfect service for my needs. It was an older book, so I didn’t want to pay the $14 plus shipping that Amazon.com wanted. I found it at Express for $2 plus $3.95 shipping. The toal cost of the book was less than $6 to my door.
Ebay Express has a ton of categories of products and it is not in an auction format. There are fixed prices. Look out Amazon.
