    I am not trying to defend eBay.
    But not all sellers are crooked.
    When Win 8 was released, I went to eBay, against others' advice, and bought an upgrade version of Win 8 Pro. Why ? Cheaper.
    I upgraded my old Vista to Win 8 Pro > then Win 8.1.1 Pro > now Win 10 Pro.
    What I bought from eBay was perfectly genuine.

    In most cases it depends on HOW MUCH Cheaper. If its too good to be true......

    Win 8 was only $39 and 14.99 if you just purchased a qualifying computer.

    True (I sell things on ebay and I'm not a crook) but if MS say the key is not valid then the key is not valid.

    I think I said " I upgraded my old Vista to Win 8 Pro ..........."

    Please re-read post #1. MS said that the OP's key is not valid.

    My last reply is to member Porthos.
    The content of the reply has nothing to do with " MS said the op's key is not valid ".

    So, how does one know if it is actually valid or not if one does not try it ?
    Seems to me, verdict has already been passed without giving it a thorough try.
    Post # 6?

    What about Post #6 ?
    It is an excellent advice.
    But the OP has not responded back with the result.

    Exactly. However, I would leave it to @Superfly or others to comment on how good a substitute Showkey product key checker is for "trying it".

    A good start would be in post #6.
