I always retained 100% feedback until recently.
My Ebay rules of sale.
New means 'NEW' End of story!
Excellent used condition = Something used but still appearing as new with NO! Faults
Very good condition = Something with small amount of wear, or very tiny minor fault.
Good condition = Usually an expensive item worn but because it was expensive still looks good.
Fair Condition ? I just don't sell such an item...
Now buying items under these catergories 'CAN' be a minefield of errors and disappointments.
I recently purchased a NEW ARAN JUMPER.
When it arrived it had been worn and washed many times, it was matted and had extensive pilling.
After getting no joy from the seller, who was very rude and proclaimed still it was NEW!!
I left a negative :(
A couple of weeks later I sold a used very good condition jumper to an ebayer. 2 days after I had posted it I recieved a NEGATIVE from the ebayer with no communication.
There was nothing wrong with the jumper, I sold the identical jumper in cream to another ebayer who was thrilled.
The ebayer who left a negative then messaged me via ebay mail. She wrote, Quote;
Recognise the feedback? Whats goes around.........
I checked the email addresses via Paypal and the surnames were the same. :(
I reported all to ebay..
I recieved a reply from Ebay that a warning would be issued to both.
They are still trading, And Ebay won't remove the unjust NEGATIVE that I recieved.
I left feedback in return.. It got removed by ebay and I recieved AN EBAY WARNING !!
The feedback that I left was NOT RUDE OR DISTASTEFUL ONLY TRUTHFUL.
Ebay said; Reason for removable;
It sounded like a negative!!! And an official warning too.. gosh :( :(
So if you buy and you sell, think twice about leaving a negative, they may get their own back in the same way.
I have to end with the fact that I have had some lovely buys from ebay, dealt with some lovely people in both buying and selling, so it is far from bad.
Please leave a vote if you found this info useful, thankyou for reading.
Happy ebaying to all.
