Japes Posted February 10, 2005 Report Share Posted February 10, 2005 So as not to hijack another thread... I've wanted to leave negative feedback on several occasions and told the other parties I intended to. On all occasions the other individuals quite plainly told me that if I left them negative feedback, they'd leave me negative feedback. On a couple of those occasions I informed Ebay of this threat and made clear this flaw in their feedback system. Their response was basically, there's nothing we can do. I once had a seller refuse to sell to me after the auction end. It was a Francois Barzoni. In their listing, they indicated they would only ship within the US (silly in itself), which was fine. I was able to make arrangements to comply with that stipulation. My parents have a place in Florida and I'd intended to have it sent to them. When the seller discovered I was living in Australia, they used it as an opportunity to pull out. The result was relatively low and they would have been unhappy with it. They politely informed me that they'd decided to keep the violin. I told them that was unacceptable and I expected the transaction be carried through. They then started making all sorts of excuses about dealing with an Australian. We had many exchanges and Ebay was privy to those. After Ebay's advice that they follow through with the transaction, they still refused. I announced my intention to leave negative feedback and they announced their intention of doing the same. Needless to say, I didn't leave negative feedback. The feedback system is seriously flawed. How can it be imrpoved? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
