There are terrible buyers out there, while with other customers pleasure to do business. Why cannot we rate these buyers? Someone giving me negative feedback without payment and reason, while other ain't accept the shipment and asking refund the next day went the package is sent... The worst thing, I cannot leave them negative feedback to warn other sellers. Feedback system must have feature!

If you have a question, you need to start your own thread so everyone can see it and respond to it.
This thread is over a year old- it is highly unlikely that the original poster will come back to read new comments here.
But what is interesting is that several of the posters who vowed they were leaving eBay are still selling here - a year later..

I totally agree. Between the added fees for "shipping costs" it is almost impossible to make any money selling on Ebay anymore. Listing fees weren't nearly as high as shipping costs. It seems that only buyers have rights anymore. What other sites are out there??

I used to make a living on ebay, but due to a busy other career I stopped a while ago, now i find out to my detriment when I went to sell my caddy that not one but twice I got screwed by the buyer. Number one decided that after he won, he did not want the car, but gave me negative feedback and number two who purchased the car after I relisted, decided to beat me out of the last payment after he picked up the car...and I can't give them negative feedback, outrageous, and ebay help was no help at all, never again

Unhappy buyer leave Ebay and so do sellers!!!
I sell very little on Ebay any more between the HIGH fee's and this bad pool of buyers they have created with no Neg. FB to buyers there are better place to sell.
I have been doing very well on the other sites and a lot cheaper.
Ebay better wake up!!!!

I agree that the "NEW" feedback system is flawed here on ebay. The seller should be able to leave negative feedback for a buyer if the buyer is able to leave it for the seller. It encourages both parties to work things out or both receive negatives! I admit that I have been away from ebay (at Craigslist, Squareup/market, and a few others) for awhile. Let's face it though, ebay is well known all over the WORLD! The new feedback system was a huge surprise to me! I'll see how this unfair system works before I say I will pack up, leave, and no longer use ebay.
I've only had one issues in the past where I received, and left a negative feedback as a seller. I sold a LARGE r/c airplane for "local pick up only" here on ebay. The buyer who lived in another state paid and said he was going to pick up the airplane while he was on his vacation. Well, his vacation never happened. The buyer requested I refund him as he couldn't pick it up. I said NO, you bid, you bought it. The buyer then requested that I crate the airplane and ship it to him. I finally agreed to building a crate (at MY expense) if he paid the additional shipping costs. This whole time he threatened my 100% feedback with his negative feedback. I built the crate and dropped the airplane off INSURED with the freight service to be shipped to his town. It was delivered SAFELY to a freight terminal in his town as he requested. All he had to do was to go down to the freight center and pick up the airplane. My part was done right? WRONG! He had the plane forwarded to him at his own expense and his own local delivery service who SIGNED that the airplane was DELIVERED by the freight service in good condition. These people, who he hired and I had nothing to do with, DAMAGED the airplane when they was transporting it! He requested that I refund his money for the airplane, the freight service, and his delivery service goons. I said NO and after ALL THIS, we both ended up with negative feedback.
So yes, I do think the seller should be able to leave NEGATIVE feedback for a buyer who has been unfair, unreasonable, and tries to extort the seller! I do the best to describe my products but some people expect "used" to be "new" and other just want something for FREE! A seller also can't be held liable for shipping damage caused by the shipping service. Even if the item is insured, the claim process takes time to get a refund and buyers want a seller to pay out-of-pocket when it's not the sellers fault. Many times the buyer also has an obligation to inspect the item and report damage immediately. They also have the product that may need to be inspected by a carrier or sent to a claims center.
!!! NOT VERY FAIR AT ALL FOR SELLERS eBAY !!!

Can't leave negative feedback! Beware aggrandizet. Has Zero rating and has recently signed up. Bought an item, failed to pay, pickup and to respond to communication. Not fair on sellers ebay if you make it difficult to leave negative feedback or too complicated a process to report. We as sellers are left to wear the fees.

I agree. If I have paid you in minutes after the aution closes, I have honored my contract with you and you have no right to leave me negative feedback. In the past feed back was used as a club by the seller, even when paid in full. In only this condition, a non payer, you should have the right to leave neagative feedback. Peter.
