    …but it does.

    Is it me, or do lots of sellers never give you feedback anymore? Unless, of course, you do so first. I know it’s being petty, but I really do not see why this should be the case. I have paid you for the item, that’s my bit done…

    FEEDBACK PLEASE!

    …but no, they just wait there, like a thief in the night, for you to give them some of that sweet sweet feedback first. Well bollocks to that! As a result, though, I am about 20-40 points down.

    ****s.

    p.s I am currently in a queue, on the phone to a multinational, hence the moany post.

    I don’t give feedback on sellers, CBA’d TBH.
    Mind some don’t give feedback on stuff I’ve sold neithers, suspect they CBA’d either.

    No biggie.

    Having been an ebay seller for some time, I always wait for the buyer to post feedback before I do. It’s a good way to know that the goods have been delivered and all is well.

    As a buyer I always leave feedback as soon as I receive the item.

    Once sellers were unable to give negative feedback to buyers the whole thing has become pointless – a blackmail device at best.

    I no longer bother to give it and haven’t a clue if I still receive it.

    Always leave feedback as I only trade with those who have good feedback, it takes not much longer to leave the feedback then it did to purchase the item so only fair.

    WHY ?have they paid you or not? that is what you leave feedback on

    Its pointless now given Ebay delete it so i tend to just use large companies safe in the knowledge that ebay will side with buyer even if i make it up that it was broken or that I did not get it

    I have not checked my feedback but i never sell on there as it is too risky and expensive IMHO

    Ebay used to be realy good but recently would agree it has gone way down hill. Fees/commission have gone up and service has gone way down.

    Ever used or should i say tried to use customer service recently? It is a joke! Round and round in circles and still cant get through.

    Its designed to give buyers confidence. After all, I can’t remember me or anyone I know being ripped off by a buyer.

    For too long you’d buy something and half expect it to be used/worn out/a fake/take forever or be similarly misdescribed.

    I can’t remember a time when a buyers money came like this.

    WHY ?have they paid you or not? that is what you leave feedback on

    But if they’re a pain, complain about things that are clearly stated in the description etc. etc. then why give good feedback.

    I don’t expect feedback off sellers until I give them feedback first.

    ebay will side with buyer even if i make it up that it was broken or that I did not get it

    I recently bought a used makita belt sander, supposedly fully working order…is wasn’t. Contacted seller who said check the brushes, so i did and replaced them, still no good. Seller said would refund but could not do so with paypal…. give him my bank details and he would do so direct.

    Sounded dodgy so i raised a case thinking customer support would come to my rescue and get my money back….what a joke! They decided in the sellers favor because of the new brushes i put in, the sander was no longer in the state i received it in and they decided against me and closed the case. Left Me £85 out of pocket.

    As you can leave nothing but positive what’s the point?

    You can’t post “AVOID this c**t!! He stripped the internals from my forks, replaced them with some gash ones and then claimed a refund. TO**ER!!”

    It takes too many characters…

    On the sander, doing the work lost you that case.

    Think of it like any other shop. You wouldn’t buy a faulty product from Tesco, attempt to fix it yourself, and expect Tesco to take it back.

    You should have sent it back and opened a case straight away.

    It didn’t work, it’s as simple as that.

    He contacted the shop and they told him to do something and he did it. To then blame them for this seems odd to say the least
    IMHO its still the shops fault.

    Junkyard Ebay settled on the work done when he opened a case.

    He should have opened a case and got a refund straight away.

    I dont disagree but i am not sure how doing what the seller instructs you to do when it is broken somehow makes it become your fault as ebay have ruled.

    Seems there is a number of canny sellers and buyers who know how to exploit ebay rulings

    I now know that now and won’t get caught out a second time. Seemed a simple thing “try a set of brushes” not exactly rocket science and instructed by the seller so never thought twice. He even offered to supply me with a set.

    I would agree with Junkyard he knew what he was doing!

    And on the subject of feedback, the really annoying thing is as i opened a case i am blocked from leaving negative for the guy who is sitting there with 100% rating and will likely con some other unsuspecting punter.
