How do I know if a buyer has unpaid strikes against him?

I have had several buyers not pay for items and they were given unpaid item strikes and I was refunded my listing fees. When I look at their feedback now I do not see any mention of their having an unpaid item strike and I am unable to leave negative or any feedback for them. How are sellers supposed to know these folks are non payers?

You can't see that.

You CAN modify you profile and block bidders with 2 or more unpaid item strikes.

 

 

Upper right corner on this page, click 'customer support'. Type your question into the input box, and click the 'search' button.

Smart sellers don't need to know - they have their preferences set to automatically block problem buyers.

 

Go to your My eBay > Account tab > Site Preferences > Buyer requirements and block buyers who:

 

Don't have a PayPal account

Have received 2 Unpaid Item strike(s) within 12 Month(s)

Have 4 Policy Violation report(s) within 6 Month(s)

Have a feedback score of -1 or lower

If a buyer was still buying out there and I gave them a strike then I would have to assume that they most likely only have one strike against them.

Well, if you have set up to limit the number of Unpaid item Strike buyer, your several unpaid item buyer could not bid on yours. You can set up your buyer's requirement.
