HOW CAN I BLOCK BUYERS WITH ZERO FEEDBACK ? THE FOLLOWING IS QUOTED RIGHT FROM EBAY ---
Posts: 1
Registered: ‎11-13-2009

Block buyers who have a feedback score of -1-2-3 or lower.

 

 

This requirement can help you avoid buyers who have received more negative than positive feedback from other eBay members bidding on your item.

 

PROBLEM HERE IS.... YOU CAN'T LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FOR BUYERS ANYMORE ????? IF YOU SUCK...THEN YOU SUCK AND YOUR FEEDBACK SHOULD REFLECT THAT . I DON'T WANT WANT NEWBIES BIDDING ON MY STUFF . THEY'RE TO UNPREDICTABLE / UNRELIABLE

What will NEG feedback do?  Nothing.  It will NOT stop the last second bidders by any means.

 

Use the tools that EBAY does give you, and forget about wanting to punish newbies...........Let me just say, the few problems I have had with non-payers were NOT newbies.  They were with FB well in the thousands...........YOU started out at zero too.

 

Smart sellers do the following:

Initiate and complete this on EVERY single non-apyer.  If closed with NO payment, they get a "strike".....WORSE than feedback could ever be.  After 2 SMART sellers will have them blocked.  Today my log showed I have BLOCKED 31 in the last 30 days.

Set your "Buyer Requirements.  Keeps deadbeats to a minimum.

Use your Blocked Bidder List

Pretty simple solutions, BUT people need to actually read about and USE the tools that ebay gives them.

Read this line again, and then again: Block buyers who have a feedback score of -1,-2,-3 or lower.

Those are minus numbers and have nothing to do with zero.

You can't block bidders with zero Feedback, as you can see in the quote from eBay.
