    I'm going with Amazon, I always feel safer using it as Amazon have top notch customer service, anytime I've had an issue they've solved it almost instantly. Ebay on the other hand have been a pain in the south-west area, due to being linked with PayPal. I do find that you can get better value on ebay due to bidding and you generally find a wider variety of items. I'm a pretty competitive eBayer tbh, it ends up like a game of who can bid closest to the timmer running out causing me to at times pay more than the item is valued. I like how Amazon is straight the point and set prices.

    Tough one, both great, but I'd have to say ebay as I like unusual quirky items, but it's close, Amazon is great too. Their prime delivery is great but the tv thing I find horrific. Like what's free and what's pay per view, so confusing so I stick to netflix. My kid bought a film on Amazon prime, dangerous stuff

    It depends......

    I usually check both when buying something, sometimes Amazon has the best price, availability and condition of item I require other times ebay does. You get good buyer protection with both Amazon and eBay and the customer service is usually really good - I've never had a problem that wasn't quickly resolved.
