With 171 million active buyers, eBay doesn’t require memberships for the deals, a difference between the online retailer and Amazon. An Amazon Prime membership costs $119 and a Prime Student membership costs $59.
eBay also recently released the Best Price Guarantee, which promises customers who find a cheaper price on a competitor’s website a refund of 110 percent of the price difference. Qualifying items for the program must be new, unopened, in-stock on eBay and competitor’s websites and feature the “Best Price Guarantee” symbol.
