Good job, not many people can boast that accomplishment. I know I certainly can't.

From morebuyfromthisshop on ebay (kinda a silly name lol) they germinated in less than a month! I didn't really expect anything at all

I too purchased some seeds from that seller recently (N. Ampullaria mixed color) and they are already germinating for me (surprisingly fast!). There were quite a few more seeds than I expected as well which was nice. I'm thinking about getting some of the Albomarginata seeds they have up now and giving those a go.

When purchasing seeds from an area which Nepenthes are native to, always look into what they are selling and if those plants are native to the same place as the seller. Unless, of course, you have no qualms with the possibility of purchasing wild-collected seeds. While there is no way to tell if their collecting practices are sustainable or not, and there is the moral delima between not supporting harmful practices and that, if not purchased, those seeds will go bad and simply be wasted, one should avoid careless falling into the cheap-seeds trap, especially if you care a lot about the well-being plant you are wanting to aquire, in nature and in cultivation.

It looks like all of those plants are native to the same island where they live, except maybe for albomarginata (haven't checked maxima). I'd be careful.
