Vinyl Records Grading:

Like if this guide is helpful

The subject of Vinyl gradings are based,mainly,on the R.R.P.G.but they are interpretive and are still just the one individual,The Seller's opinion and responsibility.

Personally,after collecting,with buying and selling Vinyl also,for more than ELEVEN YEARS on EBAY,and over FIFTY YEARS myself since I was 15 years old,I can ocassionally get it wrong.

What I would like to suggest,to Buyers and Sellers alike,please take what I mean in the context of my not sounding patronising,that instead of Buyers leaving NEGATIVE feedback,that the easiest way to find a compromise and avoid potential aggravation,the Buyer to ask the Seller to either {a} have the Vinyl sent back with the 2nd Postage costs that way or {b] find another Vinyl item around the same cost as the 'not as described' Item,buy that Item,and take the cost of off the 'replacement'  vinyl item bought or {c} issue a full refund.

In most cases,an awful lot of sellers in particular,have the NEUTRAL or NEGATIVE feedback left,when if you,as a Buyer,use the 'exchange' of Vinyl Items and costs,it then removes the need for negative feedback left to the Seller by the Buyer.

THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON IS NEVER TO GET HEATED OR ABUSIVE EITHER AS THE BUYER OR THE SELLER....IT SERVES NO PURPOSE WHATSOEVER....BUT I WILL SAY THAT SOME SELLERS ARE THEIR OWN WORST ENEMIES BY BEING VERY AGGRESIVE WITH THEIR REPLY....IN THAT CASE ENSURE YOU AS THE BUYER GET YOUR REFUND Via EBAY or PAYPAL and THEN LEAVE THEM NEGATIVE OR NEUTRAL FEEDBACK AS THEY WILL HAVE DESERVED IT.

If something is 'LOST' or 'MISSING' in the mail and the seller can provide PROOF OF POSTAGE then please do not blame the Selller....BLAME THE ROYAL MAIL AND SEND A COMPENSATION CLAIM IN TO THAT COMPANY!!.

I hope that you can make sense of that?,and I have left very very few negatives for Sellers myself when I buy as much as I sell on EBAY,so I do know about that over eleven years of EBAY 'life'.
