Had a real jerk named Peter from New York buy some weights from me. I've been a seller since 1998 and sold tons of weights and other items....This moron (and I don't use that term lightly) claimed I overcharged for weights (sent him 20 POUNDS of weights  for $11.00... He threatened me with negative feedback unless I refunded him money for shipping. I explained I LOST $.65 to ship to him....He then gave me negative feedback. I appealed to Ebay and Ebay did NOTHING about it...Ebay is totally useless when it comes to straightening out problems caused by buyers. Ebay ALWAYS favors buyers no matter how WRONG they are. Buyers can trash the **bleep** out of you and you have NO recourse (tried to give the buyer a positive negative and Ebay removed it in 10 seconds). 

 

Buyers can trash you without recourse. You have NO way to pay them back. Ebay will NEVER help you. Get used to it. Ebay SUCKS!

Currently I think the feedback system is flawed. The fact that only positive feedback can be left for buyers has lead to buyers not bothering to leave feedback to sellers.

 

The feeback system is broken on eBay

 

Here's my proposal to fix it....

 

 

1. No news is good news - Automatic positive feedback after 45 days if no feedback is left

2. Both sellers and buyers can receive positive, neutral and negative - neutral and negative feedback can only be left after commucation - reviewed by eBay

 

This should even things out and actually make feedback worth something. Feel free to point of the flaws in this plan (or agree with me)

 

Thanks for your time!
