I've been buying TOO MUCH online and I don't recommend you venture into it unless you have the $$$ to spare
But. I'll tell ya what EBaying is like anyway.
You go to Ebay and you do a search (eg. Amiga) and you see all this cool stuff come up. You then see an item that you really want. You piss yourself with happiness cause it's a rarity that not even Twistin owns and it's going for $1US.
You decide it's really cool so you bid, then you find out Akira outbids you (bastard). Then a bid war errupts but you end up winning cause Akira isn't as elite as you.
You've won. You E-mail the seller saying "oi! Guess what! I won a rarity from you that not even Twistin has! The end price was $5 and the postage according to a previous e-mail (you should e-mail the seller first to resolve any questions) was $3. I'll be sending a money order for $8. What address should I send it to? Thanks"
Then the guy will reply saying "Twistin doesn't have this!?!? Maybe I shouldn't have sold it. Oh well. My address is
15 I have Rare Stuff Avenue
Beverly HIlls, California, 90210"
You then go down to the post office and go to the guy and say "Gimme a money order to this schmuck for $8 since I wanna get this rare game that not even Twistin has". He'll look at you like you're crazy and give you a money order. You put that into the envelope and send it off.
You then wait and wait for the game that not even Twistin has. When it arrives, you open it up, play it, then hop onto the EAB and tell Twistin you have a game that he doesn't
That's EBay in a nutshell
