Main issue is getting bootlegged stuff or the one time I bought a web item on ebay I found the only item I got was free any way. Oh that upset me a lot.
Besides if I am buying a hosting plan on ebay how would I know it is actually from the host and not from some one trying to rip me off? Which I honestly see happening a lot.
we always places a link to our TOS and order link in our listings, so if anyone wants they can direct to our website, but yes i understand what you are saying. I have seen many hosting listings on ebay where the actual host (if you can call them that) dont even have a website or even anything like WHMCS. so what you get is cpanel login details for cpanel/WHM and an email for support (which is usually a gmail address).
We get a good few clients from ebay and some are surprised we have a website and a proper support system
