How long have you been a member of eBay?

Recommended Posts

Aug 01, 2001

But I'm pretty sure I've used it a few years before that. I probably forgot my account and created a new one. I never did sell anything and I'm pretty sure after hearing about this bank account stuff that I never will.

Early 2002.

 

EDIT: Might have been 2001 actually. I didn't really start buying things until 2002.

2006

 

scarier would be how MUCH money was spent in that time...

 

Ya let's all agree not open that can of worms. :)

I am coming up on my 20 year anniversary. April 30, 2001.  Where has the time gone?

May 22, 2000. I was a member of half.com and eBay bought it and that's when my account was created. That's why I have "-half" in my username.

Christmas day 1998 for me...

Uh-oh--    Santa didn't bring what you wanted?   Or brought something you hated and wanted to get rid of?  :)

1998 or early 1999. I was in UK, and eBay hadn't arrived yet. I think eBay UK was mid or late 1999?

So I had to register with eBay USA. My nick was Corinna von Hausen.

My first item was Virtual Fishing (Japan only game for Virtual Boy).

1999, just shy of 22 years.  Wild.  I really wonder how much i've spent over the years...probably too much.  I've also sold quite a bit....but not enough..lol.

I've had mine for 22 1/2 years.   How times fly.  I've made international news because of it.  :)

 

Some of my battles on ebay are legendary.. 

I remember that!!!

 

Mine is 2004, but it was actually my wife's account originally (girlfriend at the time) I didn't even get my own email address until 2006 and it was only for the sole purpose to join here...atariage, that I made one in the first place. I ended up taking over the ebay account due to my rampant compulsive buying/selling of video games...I used to have to ask my wife to use the account, now she asks me haha. I still don't own a computer...

I had a look, and my eBay member information page tells me I signed up in 1999.

I guess time flies when you are having fun? :D

I do recall eBay giving me a credit last year, which could be used on any eBay purchase I wanted. I guess as an active 20+ year member, that was probably why? It was a pleasant bonus to be sure!

January 1998 here, 100% rating, etc. and have never received such a credit as described above. Did received some kind of a credit ($23 IIRC) for using their electronic labels recently though.

1997 for me. I still remember my very first purchase, Battlemorph for the Jaguar. This was after Babbages no longer carried Jag games. My second purchase was either Exiles for the Turboduo or Snatcher for Sega CD, cant remember which game first. 

 

Bonus points if anyone remember the name of the company that use to send a Money Order for you.

Oh, I do not remember the money order company although I should since I used it numerous times...I didn't have or even know what PayPal was for my first several purchases...was soooo much easier to waste my money once I got it.

20+ years on ebay, back when i had to use money orders....

My first internet rip-off was from a scammer watching what others were bidding on, pm'ed me and offered the same item for $25 (outside of ebay), and I fell for it.

I was trying to obtain an original V.I.N.C.E.N.T. from "The Black Hole" action figure line from the 80's...never got one now they are damn near impossible to find for a reasonable price, if at all.
