I won an auction on the 20th, paid late that night and the seller left positive feedback the next morning.
Have never really had a problem with buying on ebay. There was an antique frame that the shipping company put in an envelope instead of a box as instructed. The frame arrived undamaged but separated into four pieces. It was no problem to glue it back together but the seller insisted on giving me a full refund and let me keep the frame.
Bought a cell phone NIB (unopened) and the battery would not hold a charge. The seller overnighted a new battery to me.
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
I agree that it is good courtesy to leave feedback as a buyer. But it is also good courtesy to leave feedback as a sleer if the buyer completed his side of the transaction in a timely manner. Buyers side of the transaction obviously ends before the itme is received, yet many sellers dont leave feedback until after the buyer leaves feedback for whatever reason. I for one do not play that game, and refuse to leave feedback for a seller until after they leave feedback for me, as they should.
I agree. That's why I always leave positive feedback for the buyer as soon as he pays.
As a seller, I have zero recourse if the buyer wants to be a jerk, rip me off, etc.
Therefore, I just go ahead and give the positive feedback immediately. (There's no mechanism to warn other sellers if this is a bad buyer anyhow, although I must say that 99% of buyers are good).
This is the main reason that I only ebay stuff that I care little about. It's just too scarey to ebay something that is worth $300 or so, unless you have no other means of selling it. The seller has zero rights now.. The buyers can easily rip off the seller. Ebay just says that's a cost of doing business.. ok, so now I pretty much just sell crap on ebay. In the early days of ebay, I had no qualms with selling valuable stuff..
