Beware Ebay if you sell things

Ebay does expose you to the 2nd largest (technically, I think there is a Chinese site that sees more traffic, could be wrong) group of buyers on the planet, but for the last few years, they've been treating sellers worse and worse.  The latest thing is that you can't file a "unpaid item" dispute for almost a month!  Buyers are supposed to pay (by a kind of gentleman's agreement) within 3 days.  On "Buy it Nows" it's pretty much mandatory.  If you sell anything, also, do not use cheap, "no signature" mail service to ship.  Because if there is ANY dispute or claim of not having received something, they will award the money back to the buyer.  What this means is that if someone wants to, they can order anything they want, specify cheap mail delivery and then simply claim they never got it, they'll get their money back.
