Time maybe, money no. This is the one reason eBay stays in business and people spend money there. You are basically guaranteed not to get screwed as a buyer - the same can't be said at many of the other sites (e.g. Etsy). This is also why sellers won't leave eBay because the buyers are not willing to go to a site w/ no guarantees, drop a wad of cash, and hope the seller delivers! Sellers can complain as much as they want but the truth is the eBay model allows and encourages bigger bids/higher selling prices.
