Actually I'm wondering how to block ZERO'S too.
It is something other Ebayers want.
I'm being put at a very high risk with these scammers.

The problem with 0 feedbacks is, they can be competors or costumers from your blocked list, which simply opened up a new free account in oder to harm you, eitehr simply buy and leave negative feedbacks or harm you any otherw ay they can. Noone knows who it is, open an fre ebay account everyone can, so ny new account can be anyone from your blocked list or competition or evtl a new ebay member but where is the ebay seller protection if it is not?

problem are revenge feedbacks or even buyers which caused you trouble and you blcoked them. What prevents them to simply open a new account buy off you and leave negative feedbacks?

I don't mind selling to zero feedback bidders...that is if they actually read my auction and pay. I understand that I was a zero feedback once, but the first time I joined ebay, know what I did? Read the whole auction. The seller requested to be contacted prior to bidding if no feedback, so, I contacted them first and was welcome to the wonderful world of ebay. Since then, any time I list an item, I ask the same, "bidders with zero feedback must contact prior to bidding to ensure they understand the auction requirements". Within the past 3 days, I have cancelled 4 bids with zero feedback(and all had just started their account within the same 3 days), all because no one wants to read. I've had enough bidders with zero feedback not pay too.
Again, I don't mind selling to them, if they would just read and show me they read it.

It's nearly impossible to sell electronics because of zero feedback buyers that don't pay. All in an effort to skew "sold item" search results to make their listings look better. There used to be simple, elegant solution of being able to CHOOSE whether you accepted zero feedback accounts. If you're willing to waste your time with bots and deadbeats- you should definitely have the choice. But some of us have other, better things to attend to than dealing with bogus business on this increasingly unusable selling platform.
Also, bring back negative feedback! Down with deadbeats!

But ebay does nothing. I see zero feedback users who have not paid (by the way to burst auctions, obviously) and there still actives, BRAVO!
A NEW user who doesn't pay on their first purchase is a RISK to sellers and possibly a fake account. Ebay should chase them or change the policy for new users, stricter, for obvious reasons, at least. Meanwhile I have to fight in some of my auctions for cutting heads (zero feedbacks users but very unreliables and I know for my OWN experience, unfortunately, and LOST money).

Lately I have had several troubles with zero feedback and I lost sales and money on my auctions but I can't do anything because ebay does nothing when ebay could do something (eg BLOCK the first non payment of an user with zero feedback!!), it's that simple and OBVIOUS. I have the filter for buyers but I can't prevent the zero feedback so I'm vulnerable all the time with this kind of users (principally from CHINA) if they bid on last moment. It's incredible that nothing is done about it.
Right now I've lost a sale of $300 and the last month the same thing. Fantastic!!

How about the ability to halt the zero bidder until they can be vetted. There are sellers out there, with fake accounts , the deliberately drive up the price of an item. Then theirs looks more attractive at the lower price.
