When a ebay buyer won’t leave feedback with PayPal holds

Thanks to the people at eBay who made the decision to put holds on people’s payments until they get feedback for a item or a set number of items, this problem has sprung up.

Well take a look at the following picture, it shows a eBay seller constantly asking for feedback and not getting it as far as I know until he loses it :

Crazy seller threatens to go to buyers house over headphones… (eBay user horror story 05/14)

Heres a story about a seller, and 1 of the few that screwed eBay up by going that bit too far. In this case we have a buyer who purchased something, never got it, started a case up, the seller then sends the item (they did AFTER the case), eBay sides with the buyer in the case and refunds the buyer, the seller then threatens to go to the buyers house and get his money.
