the risk to selling on ebay

Like if this guide is helpful
thought it time to express my views and concerns on the way ebay has evolved since it started .as i have been a member since before it was ebay (it used to be free and called yahoo auctions)thought i may have a little to offer. It has became more and more a buyer safe environment ,with little or no protection for genuine sellers .while i accept there is a need to protect buyers in this marketplace ,as a result of pay pal refunding buyers too easily & no possibility of sellers expressing there concerns through negative feedback on ingenuine buyers ,it has became a very dangerous place indeed .a scenario that could and probably is being played out is this - buyers wins item buyer recieves item ,they claim item has been damaged in post ,or is not as decribed . sellers is instructed to refund payment (including p&p) to buyer. buyer leaves negative feedback. seller has no option to reciprocate .so there is no record on system of this buyer, having had a bad deal . which could set suspicions going in prospective sellers . the out come is these unscrupulous buyers ,get items for free and there is never any record of it. as a result i have decided to stop selling on ebay ,and i would advise anyone out there to think very carefully before trusting that everyone out there is as genuine as i still maintain are the majority.
