- This really shouldn't annoy me….(eBay feedback content)
…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…
…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.
p.s I am currently in a queue, on the phone to a multinational, hence the moany post.Posted 5 years ago
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.
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 IMHOPosted 5 years ago
Once sellers were unable to give negative feedback to buyers the whole thing has become pointless
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.Posted 5 years agohoraMember
Once sellers were unable to give negative feedback to buyers the whole thing has become pointless – a blackmail device at best.
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.Posted 5 years ago

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.Posted 5 years agoMoseyMTBMember
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.Posted 5 years ago
He should have opened a case and got a refund straight away
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!
Seems there is a number of canny sellers and buyers who know how to exploit ebay rulings
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.Posted 5 years ago
