Buying Made Easy: How eBay is changing the Test Equipment Industry

March 28, 2014

Where do you turn when it’s time to buy?  What do you do when you need it now? Who can you trust? 

When engineers need something, they need it fast.  They want tested, functional equipment that is ready to hit their bench straight out of the box. Nobody likes the surprise of getting something that needs a tinkering and sometimes there’s no time to wait for your purchasing department to get its paperwork together. eBay just might be the solution.

eBay has come a long way since its initial growth in 1997. Long gone are the days of hobbyist trading their Star Wars collections via online auctions and weekend warriors taking their garage sales digital.  Instead, eBay has emerged as a leading online retailer and premier e-commerce site where buyers can safely purchase high-end, top-dollar assets from trusted sellers with amazing benefits over the traditional way we buy; including instant and secure payments, buyer protection and warranties, and expedited low-cost shipping options. 

Buy It Now

Do you hear eBay and immediately think auction? Don’t! eBay has streamlined the way we buy and now many sellers offer their inventory through a store format with the Buy it Now option.  Buy it Now is a fixed-price format that let’s you purchase items instantly in as little as three clicks.

Worried about your security? Don’t be! Payments can be made direct through PayPal or with any major credit card.  All transactions are secure and protected by Buyer Protection.

Buy it Safe

The eBay Money Back Guarantee protects you if you don't receive your item (or if it doesn't match what was described in the listing) and PayPal offers dispute resolution services to stop payment and issue refunds for transactions gone bad.  These two sites work together very closely in favor of the consumer to make sure your online buying experience is a pleasurable one.

In addition to these site features, sellers can clearly state their terms of sale and included warranties.  For example, all items advertised and sold on the Axiom Test eBay store come with a 30-day Warranty and 5-day Right of Return period. Plus, everything that we’ve listed has been thoroughly tested and get’s a secondary quality control check prior to shipment!

Get it Fast

One thing that can cause a hiccup in the “old school” purchasing process is figuring out who is going to pay for shipping, what it’s going to cost, and how long it will take to get it. eBay has streamlined this process by calculating shipping costs upfront, estimating delivery windows based on seller performance and handling time,  and allowing sellers to predetermine their preferred shipping methods and include options for expediting orders.

If that wasn’t enough, Axiom Test has gone one-step further and now offers Free Shipping via FedEx Ground and guaranteed one-day handling. What does that mean? The Buy it Now price is what you pay today, and your item will ship the next business day at no additional cost to you!
