Actually, eBay works hand-in-hand with the brands/manufacturers to identify and remove counterfeit items. Unfortunately, it's a difficult and time-consuming effort, and even the brand owners sometimes have trouble spotting the fakes from an online ad.You'll find that if you want to sell name brand stuff on ebay...good luck. Their fees did go up too! They're a lot of counterfeit items on ebay..which ebay doesn't seem to care about, since they make money of it anyways. I'm sure they say they do, but seem to take no action.
I guess it's just my experience. I bought an item on ebay and it was counterfeited. There were several other users that complained about it being counterfeited also. I've filed a bbb report and did everything on ebay to report the user. At the end after 3 months my negative feedback left for the seller plus the other users' negative feedback left for the user was gone. Seller was back at 100% positive. Ebay pretty much has done nothing but sent the same email over and over to me stating they received my complaint. I believe I got that email 4 times in a month. Anyways I know it's counterfeited because I know the product. Well that's just my 2 cents against some ebay sellers.Actually, eBay works hand-in-hand with the brands/manufacturers to identify and remove counterfeit items.

Can you elaborate on how you accomplish this? Ebay certainly gets a lot of eyeballs, but breaks down as a sale tool - this would seem like an effective way to use ebay.I suppose alot of companies are still using it for advertising and redirecting the targeted traffic, I am starting a similar campaign next week for ebay, i will report how it goes.

Regarding brand names, my experience as a seller is they definitely do try to eliminate fakes. I sold popular brand (Coach, LV, Prada) women's handbags on ebay and was immediately contacted by ebay to provide proof that I was selling legit items. I had to supply information on where I was sourcing the bags and I know that ebay followed up with that source to verify that I was legit and was selling as described. Actually, it ticked me off as they froze my paypal account for 3 weeks while they investigated..
