Default anyone had experience buying from ebay?

i've been looking online for bird perches with reasonable shipping prices (at least as much as the product if not lower )

and i found some VERY cheap perches on ebay. the products have good reviews and the seller is a top rated seller but im still worried about the product's quality... so has anyone here bought from ebay? what was the quality like?

and is there any quality check that can be done on a perch to see if it's suitable?

eBay can be very variable in quality. I've bought a new cage and wheatgrass seeds via eBay and was pleased with the quality - though they were from U.K. sites. I've ordered (non bird) items from China; some have been great, some have been awful.

As for perches, I'd ask the seller what wood (I'm assuming they're wood) they are made from and then cross check it against the safe wood list before ordering.
Safe natural wood for budgies
If the reviews are good then hopefully the quality will be ok. I also feel more assured if the seller accepts returns.

If you name the link/site for the perches, other members may have purchased there and be able to give you their opinions.

thank you so much for your comment. i ended up finding good quality perches from amazon ( initially i skipped them over because i thought they were dowel perches)
thanks for your help regardless!
