old man yells at cloud of online stores Show more
@brainwane this whole thing where major online stores just became frontends for random shops you never heard of, of which a large amount are sketchy is ...
... not a good trend.
Same happened to newegg. Ordering anything tech is a nightmare of weird scalpers.
If I wanted to be on ebay I'd be on it.
@brion oh no! NewEgg too?!?! Very disappointing!
This makes me glad that it's easier than it's previously been for manufacturers to set up their own storefronts
@brainwane @brion on both amazon and newegg I tend to avoid third party sellers, haven't had a counterfeit issue with "sold by" the main store yet. But it's a huge problem overall!
