Its about time ebay got some new policies to stop these dirty tricks that other ebay sellers are doing.
Its usually by small time sellers or sellers struggling to get the sales.
I've even seen some "high volume" sellers start doing this recently!
It's the old time trick of get rid of your competition, to be more successfull yourself.
Most successfull ebay sellers like ourselves know, it takes time and alot of work to gain a good strong feedback and more importantly to gain the trust of the buyers, in many cases it takes alot to gain regular return customers and this is the secret to success.
A few weeks ago we received another dirty trick from a seller, and how it works is simple ! ! !
This particular "High Volume" seller with his new "low feedback" (less than 30) account attacked our perfect 3+ year feedback after going to our ebay store, buying two high end items on two different days, and didn't pay for either, not only that he left us retaliatory feedback!
Here's now it works!
These cheating sellers open a new ebay account and start buying from their competition, but dont pay.
Instead they then go on the leave negative feedback in many cases claiming scams, non receipt of goods ect basically anything to turn away potential buyers.
Trust me when I tell you it killed my sales for an entire MONTH!
Not only that I had a couple good clients badger the heck out of me as to why those types of feedbacks were left in the first place!
What they are doing, is strictly against ebay policy and any victim can file for feedback removal (as we did) the problem is ebay does not check out the buyer properly and the feedback remains but whats worse is that these cheating sellers get away with it and always do it again.
Surely its time that ebay did something to stop this, new ebay members should be made to go through some kind of ebay dispute if they have a problem before been able to leave feedback this will stop these cheats.
If this continues this market place will become full of false feedbacks and in turn normal buyers would buy from unsafe smaller sellers instead of professional experienced sellers and in turn more buyers will fall pray to scams and fraudulent sellers.
