This was sent in, it is a screenshot of a eBay sellers feedback, see the pattern?
The buyers are complaining they have not had deliveries, but the seller has proof from the couriers of multiple attempts, welcome to your typical eBay buyer.
I have seen this a few times now, its quite interesting as eBay seems/or can’t be bothered to do anything about it. In this situation a buyer buys some DVD’s they don’t match the description there basically scrap but anyhow the situation gets to a point where the buyer leaves the seller a negative feedback, fast forward a bit and the buyer is now selling some DVD’s and the buyer is in the same area as the seller who sold him the bad DVD’s and leaves negative feedback seemingly unrelated to the DVD’s, coincidence? (the seller swears they was working)
In recent times the menace that is the none paying bidder on eBay has reached epidemic levels and continues to rise, the buyer has so much power with eBay they just don’t give a crap basically, since eBay removed the ability for sellers to leave negative feedback the problem got worse, here are some bits and pieces I found about this from sellers. Mostly from eBay’s own forums!
Stumbled across this, a tool that uses RSS feeds to notify you instantly (I guess) when someone leaves you feedback, thought it was worth posting due to the top comment on it :
I dedicate enough to ebay as it is than monitoring for some tard leaving me a neg. Id rather spend the time on my own site than bother with this.
Says it all sadly…
Had these sent in, quite shocking just looking at them. What are people thinking when they get into these situations, what is going through someones mind to complain about a £0.06p lunch box, are these people stable enough to use a computer? Read on and take note.
Found this, a item was shipped in a recycled food box it seems, I can only imagine the grief the seller got for doing this, as on eBay your meant to ship all your items in armored boxes with free gold plating and have them hand delivered before a buyer has even bought it if the way buyers go on is anything to go by. I once shipped a t shirt in a unused burger box (I was buying rejected packing material in bulk) which I turned inside out and all hell broke lose so.
Small collection of peoples view’s on eBay I gathered up from a long thread about eBay and its general setup and it seems people are not happen at all.
Had these 2 links sent in which have very detailed articles on various issues with eBay’s feedback system, they have been published on eBay UK in the “buying guides” that thing where people write about things (items mostly) to help other people with similar interests. Amazingly there still up, which is odd because eBay seems to have eyes everywhere, nothing bad can be said about the master after all. Defiantly worth a read.
disgruntledseller.3owl.com/ – EBAY MISSION IMPOSSIBLE – 1 mans story that I can bet you have had at least 2/3 or even maybe more of the same issues as him, it is a must read, loads of detail of the problems a honest, normal hard working person had to battle through with crazy eBay buyers and staff, I don’t know how anyone could possible keep there sanity through all of it. Sadly his story is VERY common and getting more common as every week passes. Seriously read this before it happens to you, its not “if” its “when”
