PostSubject: Buying from EBAY   Mon Aug 09, 2010 12:29 am

Hi,
was browsing ebay and saw quite a number of brand new TaylorMade Superfast TP drivers for sale. Have anyone here bought from those sellers before ? Wondering if they are authentic. Thanks

as long as their rating is good. Shouldnt be an issue. Bought multiple items from ebay so far... non of them appear to be fake so far. Just reconfirm the place they ship out the item..

Take note that vPost don't accumulate the shipment. They charge per item basis. So no savings even if you try to accumulate your own purchases. I ended up paying high shipping charges for very cheap stuff which they refused to send together with my other items. Stopped using vPost ever since.

Bro, but if all golf clubs, it's considered similar items and they DO consolidate. I just bought a Adams Pro Gold Hybrid and the 9032LS driver from separate sellers, and vPost combined the shipping so i didn't have to pay the Base Charge twice.

Anyway, u got alternatives?

I'm surprised they do that. Their emails to me were very curt - no consoliadtion. That's it. I had to ask them to destroy the cheap shipment.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback. vPost had lost a customer (made about six shipments before cutting them off).

Consolidate shipment before and not additional base charges. Wonder the diff?

As for buying from eBay, I avoid totally for golf clubs. Not that I had bad experience but if you google and you will hear stories of fakes, especially sc. I buy direct from reputable shops.

This I agree... I'd stopped using Vpost for long time liao. Anyway, most ebay sellers and
golf websites shipping charges are quite reasonable. And the best part is they ship direct to your door-step
(for some). Save your trouble of seller to vpost than to u... so mar fan

Comgateway does consolidation. Their services are better than vpost

Just a friendly warning to all ebayers, no of positive ratings does not guarantee anything... I have come across two really really dubious cases already:

1. 100+ 100% postive rating : but when you checked through the ratings, more than 50 of them were for selling "How to accumulate 100 positive ratings" for 1cent.

Next thing I know, I got a message from ebay central that this account has been hacked and suspended.

2. I got an offer from a seller to withdraw my neutral feedback, with full refund (low cost item in any case).

So, just be extra careful. The ebay is now into the next generation of users and abusers!
