- All Animation Is Disney: Either because the sellers are genuinely unaware, or because they think they'll sell more if they claim their old VHS copies of Don Bluth movies are made by Disney.
- Paranoia Fuel: Built in feature. If you're debating about whether or not to purchase a Buy It Now item, the fact that eBay displays the amount of people who are watching it, often in bold red letters, can certainly leave you paranoid about someone else getting it before you can think about it.
- Scrappy Mechanic: Any situation in which information is withheld from a bidder, such as the ceiling of an automatic bid or the reserve to be met.
YMMV / eBay
