You've left 69 and received 58 that's a pretty good ratio but to call others disrespectful for not leaving feedback is......well disrespectful.

 

Feedback is voluntary for both buyers and sellers. If you're selling just remember that not all buyers leave feedback and they might not be leaving feedback because they may feel the transaction was not positive and could not leave a positive but did not want to leave bad feedback for a seller. Many just want their item and don't care about feedback. Do you want feedback or what you bought? I prefer my item and don't care about feedback.

 

Some sellers don't leave feedback until the buyer leaves feedback and some sellers don't leave feedback at all. If feedback is that important to you then you can check out a sellers feedback profile to see what their feedback timing is. Do you want feedback or the cash the buyers spend? I want the money and don't care about feedback.

 

But to come here and call people disrespectful for not leaving feedback is just childish. Get over it.

First of all, typing in all caps is considered yelling on the internet, and it widely considered to be rude.

 

Now, then.  Feedback is optional and voluntary.  No one has to give it, ever.  The buyer may be taking some time to test the item, they may just not give it at all, or they might have had issues with the item that didn't warrant less-than-positive feedback, so they decided to give none.

 

Also, calling people names for not doing something that is optional and voluntary is rude.



Real people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features.

So you have left 28 feedback for Buyers and only received 11 feedback back.  That I would say is an average return.   Many buyers do not bother with feedback,  they just want their item.

 

Also, be careful what you wish for.  As you start getting more buyer feedback, they you can come back complaining about how they did leave you feedback but 4's across the board on DSR's because ebay tells them 4 is good.  But due to your low volume, your DSR's will put you below standard...   all hypothetical but really just be content and the good feedback will come.

Seriously, do you not realize that feedback is optional and voluntary? And that some buyers/sellers never leave feedback? And that nagging people for feedback will get you something you do not want? And that buyers can only receive positive FB?

love2shop, it looks like you're relatively new to selling.  Try not to get sucked into eBay's feedback vortex.  Remember why you are selling - to make money!  It's nice to get fb, but in the end, the only part of the transaction that boosts your bank account is money - your bank doesn't accept feedback, lol.

 

No seller gets 100% return on feedback.  It's voluntary, and plenty of people just opt out.  Don't set yourself up for disappointment.  Continue to be a good seller and more fb will eventually come.  But more importantly, more money willl come.

 

You might want to consider using this ID for selling, and getting a new ID for buying.  That's because buying and selling on the same ID puts you at risk for malicious behavior should you ever have to leave a neg for a seller.  You don't want to give them the option of starting a new ID (or having a friend bid on an item) just for the purpose of negging you back.

There are two types of auctions on ebay.  Those that sell widgets and those that sell feedback (even though it is not ebay legal).  If you are buying a widget the feedback is voluntary and i not a requirement when buying and selling.  In fact a lot of sellers stopped leaving it altogether when ebay stopped sellers from being able to leave negatives for buyers.  If you want feedback then there are auctions that sell just that.  But those are sometimes removed along with the feedback you received for them whether you were a buyer or a seller.

Indeed, feedback is very important, and buyers should leave feedback
for sellers.  I always do.  And it's equally important for sellers to put their

best foot forward, set a good example, and leave feedback when paid.

I did not look at your fb, There is not much to reply to, The upper posts are well written. This is worth adding. As a buyer you have much left to do besides paying. You need to let your seller no that you are happy with the item and his performance or if your not. You may not get so upset if you could figure out the buyer green donut means absolutely nothing ( holds no water) If you were selling and you had something to gain with fb meaning discount this would be a reason to be upset. The faster you come to terms with what buyer fb is about I will assure you that you will not be so upset. Most important fb in required!

Wow...if not getting feedback gets you this riled I can hardly wait to see what you come up with after you don't get paid and have to jump through hoops to get your fees back that eBay already charged you off the top.

I don't care whether buyers leave me feedback.  I care whether they pay. I care whether they want to return the item. I care whether they are high maintenance.  If they don't leave me feedback, that's totally okay with me.  If they DO leave feedback I prefer that it be positive with all 5s in the DSRs.

 

As a buyer, I sometimes don't leave feedback if

 

1. I don't log into eBay with the ID I purchased with for a while and forget about it

2. I don't want to say anything bad and don't have anything good to say

Thanks for posting.  I would hate to actually win an auction from a seller like you.

 

Sheesh.

If you are this riled up when buyers don't leave you feedback (which is not a real problem), then what would happen if a real issue comes up...for example, if a buyer leaves bad feedback and low ratings (now, that is a real problem)?  Not saying that your buyers will leave you bad fb, but just pointing out that there are far worse things that can happen than not receiving any fb.

OPs one neutral received and response to it certainly match their attitude in their opening post.

Did you know that I have seller freinds that whenever they make a sell and get their money they consider that to be feedback?....after all the buyer has the option to buy from any seller they choose but they came to my friends listing to buy from...thats the best kind of feedback you could ask for.:womanwink:

bonanza.com you can import all your ebay listings!   If all sellers start leaving, then ebay will not have buyers...gee i wonder if they thought of that concept?  Are sellers appreciated now and given that much care and fairness?
