Did he confide it as a problem?

Did he explain how and when he buys things on Ebay?

Sounds like a problem-- given the amounts and his income, and other needs-- but if he's a collector of antique or vintage stuff-- if there's a collector's market in it-- it's amazing how easy it is to spend outrageous amounts of money. Ebay isn't the best place to pursue that passion-- but it's one of the easiest one.

I mean, were his purchases all impulse, or did he have some plan for it?

Not that it isn't a problem anyway-- but there are different types of problems. I'd call it more of an addictive sort of issue-- or lessening of control of certain impulses-- than OCD, though. If he's trying to collect, there can be social or interpersonal pressures to have good stuff, so it shifts the meaning of it.
