Jamaican’s love eBay! It may just be the natural instict that we have with buying and selling. Whatever the reason, this site delivers on many fronts.

It offers hard to find items such as computer and car parts, while still providing a wealth of common items such as iPads, cell phones and more. While the overall shopping experience might be a little uncomfortable for some people (e.g. sending money to someone they don’t know for an item they have never seen) most Jamaicans are comfortable with the process. Seller feedback makes it easy to identify trust worthy sellers, and the reason anyone goes to eBay is always the same…great deals!

Because you are dealing with individual sellers and not an established major site, shipping can often get delayed because of one reason or another.

Online auction sites can be confusing. Start price, reserve price, BuyItNow price. Shipping free vs shipping not free, USPS vs FedEx. For the casual online shopper this may be too many things to have to worry about.

Jamaica knows eBay well and we agree that it makes for a solid shopping experience mainly because of great prices and selection.

    • What Shipping address did you use? They should go to the address you signed up with … if it has passed 1 month .. please check the Seller on Ebay for a refund

  9. If I decide to buy a phone on eBay, will I need to pay tax or anything of that nature for my package to be cleared? Or will it come straight to my doorstep considering I’ve paid in full on eBay?

    • It depends on the service you use … If its post Office you might pay a little something , but if you use a Courier Service , they charge according to weight and customs tax. Please call these places to find out

  11. Hey can someone help me I order a chain 2 weeks ago and I wanna know how will I know when its in Jamaica and where should I go to collect it

  12. Worst company ever. The customer service agents are crappy and racist. I purchased a phone costing over $300USD and I didn’t received it. I called Ebay and the seller several times to cancel my order because I made an error in the shipping address before the item was shipped and they still shipped per policy saying I should I corrected the address before purchasing. They are like robots, complete retards. Even though USPS shows that it was returned to the seller, Ebay rules in the seller favor stating that I received it. They closed my case and I couldn’t re-open it with Paypal because of this. Even paypal asked if they are stupid, because obviously they didn’t checked the tracking number. Paypal refer me to my card issuer. Had to go through my bank and wait for 3 months before getting my money back. I got it back, no more Ebay for me. All my purchases through Amazon goes smoothly, they even refunded me for a Shoes that I purchased and received, but got torn. That is customer service!!!!!!!!!!

  13. How much would it cost additionally in JA, if i order a Lumia 635 for 111.94 including shipping? Phone is 73.99 + 37.95.
