I think eBay should send out reminders out if feedback is not reported after a few weeks. What do you think? 

I read very early on in my ebay career to not fuck with asking for feedback. Some people will just NEVER leave feedback, and those are probably the type you don't want to piss off. The people that leave feedback will do it whether you message or not. That's the life of Ebaying.

There's not really anything to be done about it. You can ask, but 60% feedback is pretty much average from what I've seen people here report.

eBay does do it automatically.

I let sleeping dogs lie.  The subject of feedback comes up now and again - some sellers don't leave feedback for their buyers unless the buyer first leaves them a positive feedback...which can lead to a sort of stalemate.

 

As a seller, if a buyer pays within 4 days, they get a positive feedback from me - no reason not to do so - the buyer has done everything they're supposed to do at that point.  I know some sellers wait to "make sure the buyer is happy", but if you don't get a feedback saying so, then neither of you gets any feedback.  If the buyer is out to screw you over, or you sold them a polished turd, then they're still going to leave you a neg if they can, and you leaving them a positive has no effect on the feedback you get in return (and you can reply to their neg if you so desire).  I have never asked for feedback, and yeah maybe half +/- of buyers leave me feedback.  So it goes.

 

As a buyer, I get miffed if I leave the seller a positive feedback and don't get any in return.  That's just poor form.  I have asked sellers to leave me a positive in return - no problem with doing that!

 

In the end, I don't think you need to "deal with" buyers who don't leave you feedback - they're not obligated to, just like any transaction (in the non-eBay world, who leaves reviews on Google etc for everything they buy?).

I did, but I was at 34 prior to that. I think there was a lot of overlap and PTO readers were already watching.

Have most people here gotten PTO'd so far? I gotta find me some gren.

This fucker.

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/POLO-RALPH-LAUREN-NAVY-BLUE-STRIPED-SILK-COTTON-TIE-NEW-ITALY-/111440486345?nma=true&si=uBmQx0yjMnycANehxO0Waj9WBF4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

 

Bought this tie to re-sell, "New" in title, Item Condition, and in description. I didn't look too closely at the picture because I assumed it was at least is excellent condition. If you look closely at the second picture, the blade is all jacked up and restitched, as well as half the tie being unstitched from the back.

 

I hope this isn't anyone here, because I sorely want to neg this person.

Just return it - "14 days money back, buyer pays return shipping"

Wow, that's super bad.  At first I thought maybe just screwed up the condition (forgot to change from a previous listing) but then I saw he had nwot in his written description too.  That's really awful, beyond mere oversight.

 

 

Some shady shit right there, and I'm only on page one.  I'm also noting the liberal use of NWOT.  If anyone deserves a negative for blatant bullshit, it's this guy.  I'm amazed that most of his negative feedback is for items not received, the minority are for him selling broke ass shit as new.
