Leaving aside the fact that you can't leave negative feedback for buyers anymore. Which in itself is a stupid move from ebay, in my opinion. You are allowed to leave feedback immediately after winning an item. Shouldn't there be a wait period of at least 2-3 days the usual time for an item to be received in the mail?
Why am I asking this? A buyer bought an item at 7:30 pm and the very next morning left me negative feedback. He sent me messages over the night and I never saw them till the next afternoon around 1pm. By then he already left me negative feedback. Seems a bit unfair to allow feedback to be left that soon, especially negative feedback. It doesnt give time for the item to be received or time to communicate and resolve an issue.
Does anyone else feel like we should ask ebay to have some sort of time limit of when a person can leave feedback, in addition to the 30 days?
Feedback can be left instantly because of some instant delivery items. Like gift card codes, cell phone activation etc.
You can protest the bad feedback though if I recall, if justified.
Care to explain why he left you bad feedback?
Yeah, but those are only allowed to be listed on the local ebay classified ads. I am talking about something I sold on ebay which must be mailed.
He left feedback because I didn't respond to his 3 messages he sent me during the night and in the morning. I was sleeping and took care of some things in the morning. I already reported his feedback for being sent to soon, with not enough time for him to receive the item.
I just think it should be something that needs to be fixed, so people dont have to deal with the hassle.
I think that its crazy that they allow someone to leave feedback, even if they request to cancel the transaction.
I also agree, they should remove and disable comments if the transaction is cancelled.
I don't mind the instant feedback, but i do find it really weird when people rate a buyer / seller as positive, but the actual feedback is negative. For example, one of my buyers had a pretty high and positive feedback rating, but almost all her other sellers gave her positive feedback which was actually negative (rated positive, wrote negative)
but in case, wow. that must be a pretty rude buyer.
