Anyone buy off eBay???
Posted 23 February 2007 - 04:23 AM
I have picked my dress, and am now in the process of trying to find the cheapest place to get it. So far it seems like the cheapest has been through an eBay store - has anyone either purchased their wedding dress through eBay or known of anyone else who has
Also, I'm in Canada so I'm not sure if I'll end up saving much after customs - does anyone know what customs would be for a dress that costs around $500?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

For customs. Ask the seller what they can do for you about customs costs. Some people will be willing to mark the item as a gift which eliminates or greatly reduces customs fees.

I've never had any problems with any of the other transactions I've done on ebay.
Oh, one thing, I sold a few things on ebay and usually I only ship within the U.S. but one person from canada asked for something and another from mexico. So I said yes, shipped the items, the one going to canada was supposed to take up to 2 weeks, it was 2 months before he received it, and the one to mexico was supposed to be 2-3 weeks, it was 3-4 months before he received his stuff. I felt so bad for both of these people, they did get them, but it took a lot longer than expected. This was through the USPS, so just be sure to use fedex or ups or some type of guaranteed service just to be sure.

I am also a China manufacturer bride. The maker just emailed me saying that the dress will be ready in about 15 days so I can't say much about quality. Thus far, service has been easy and attentive. Before selecting a ebay vendor, I read all of the feedback and searched the message boards for comments. Very few have been dissapointed.
I have been purchasing a lot from Ebay for the wedding, so don't be nervous. Just make sure you don't wait till the last minute. If anything is wrong you can always get a replacement.
