It's only 10, but I just got a new one because I had been sharing one with my dad for the longest time.

Had one in the 600s, but got hijacked, and eBay only recently sided with me on the issue.

Some dude apparently thought it would be cool to "sell" Dells to people on my old account. Hell, I don't think they've shut him down yet.

So, if you're in the market for a Dell on eBay, be sure to not purchase from Highlifeman21, since this handle has been hijacked.

I've had a couple goofballs give me negative, even after they got the item. Oh well. :D

393, I think, all positive. I had a retaliatory neg from a non-payer. I got his phone number, and it was a number for some adult thing. It is against ebay to give false contact info, so they removed the neg and I think they banned him. My user name is "the-grand-wazoo". I sell mostly DVDs on there.

I have some regular items I carry on a Buy It Now option (one of which might be of interest to out of town Cincinnatians). Plus I check out yard sales and thrift shops for little gems. Right now I'm clearing out some Norman Rockwell plates and I just had a bit of luck with a bunch of items a retired Kroger employee had.
I'm also doing well selling books on Amazon (I have a number of interesting baseball titles).

My feedback is 491, all positive. I have had to leave a few negatives for non-paying buyers, but I've been very lucky in that regard.

I sell under the ID tscsales. How about others?

Wouldn't it be great if we could use our feedback comments in our personal life-

"I know my credit score is only 440, but broncoslover45 said that I was an A++++ buyer and that I am highly recommended. I'm also a true asset to ebay. Now how about that loan?"

Amid my 363, I have one ridiculous neg from an idiot who could not be satisfied and have given out about 4. (Including one to the aforementioned idiot.) I could have justified giving out about 4 more to people who won auctions and took 2-3 weeks worth of nagging to pay, but I feared the retaliation.

That'd be funny -- if people could "Leave Human Being some Feedback" in all odd situations:

(POS) "I just Caveat Emperor in my Skyline. FANTASTIC CHILL EATER. WOULD SERVE CONEYS TOO AGAIN A++++++++"
(NEG) "Stay away! He complains that he ordered his cafe mocha over ice, but we clearly agreed to hot. BAD COFFEY DRINKER! F- DO NOT TRUST!"
(POS) "Caveat was a joy to sit next to at the ball game, especially when he loudly booed the cubs fans whenever they walked up and down the aisle from their seats. GREAT BALLPARKER 100/100!"

(My eBay feedback is a solid 9 -- but I've only bought a Michael Clayton jersey and a few other things)

1,295 = 99.8%

No negatives in over 2 years now:thumbup:

I had a lady give me a neg once because she didn't like the box I shipped in. Said it was beat up (which it wasn't). Either way, it had kids clothes in it...not like anything would get damaged. I checked out her feedback and her left for others...she had very few nice things to say about sellers. I think she used ebay as a vent. I also got a neutral from a lady who bought a cook book from me because she decided none of the recipes in it were for her:dunno:. Really don't think I was to blame for that! People kill me sometimes!!

Despite what eBay says, as a seller I NEVER leave feedback first.
I got a neg once (by mistake) and there is a process to get it eliminated. The person was nice about it, but without a 'retaliatory neg' over his/her head, the buyer may not have gone through the trouble of withdrawing that feedback.

I love buying the old bengal games on DVD on Ebay.

I also purchased all 4 games of the WS 1976 series.... VHS.....good condition.
No commercials.
Game 3 of 1976 NLCS..... no real action until the last 3 innings.


I keep hoping someone has the MNF from 1975...BUFF at CIN....
Anderson throws for 447 yards..... Curtis...Joiner.....Myers all have 100 or close to it receiving yards.
OJ goes for 197 rushing yards.

I'd never even associate with someone with a handle like that :laugh:

My rep is about 40, but this is my third account. My other two also got screwed up. I had one account suspended because the guy had a 10,000 word description.. Hidden in there in fine print saying the item was not functional. I retracted my bid, and he went crying to ebay, who sided with him and revoked my account . :rolleyes:

I just had a little tiff on eBay with a buyer (I sell DVD's and CDs I've watched or listened too, so I'm not an Ebay tycoon)...but he was mad I waited to give the buyer (him) feedback until he left my feedback...I told him it was simply to protect me and next thing I know he gives me positive feedback with a comment however that I held his feedback hostage.

Whats the proper ettiqute on this...I feel its debatable/and or just a difference in philosophy, but if someone doesn't leave me feedback, I don't care or whine...I just move on. That said, I wait until a buyer does leave me feedback, and I then ALWAYS give them awesome feedback.

I know his little remark won't hurt me at all, but I'm just annoyed.

Thoughts???

The vast majority of buyers won't read the details of your feedback. I usually post seller feedback after my buyer does. Most sellers I've dealt with hold back their feedback until I posted mine, so AFAIK, you're in the majority.

It's definitely not worth a neg. If you're worried about people reading it, just keep in mind that it'll roll off of the front page of your feedback after a few transactions. Almost nobody bothers to read the second page.

The seller should leave feedback lastly. That's how it normally works, and my rating is 379 or so.

This is done becuase the seller has no true way of knowing that the buyer received the goods and is satisfied. In other words, the buyer is the first one to know that the transaction is complete.

Once the feedback is left and the seller knows all is good, then feedback should be left for the buyer.

A seller would be a fool to leave positive feedback before he knew the transaction was complete. Since ebay doesn't let anybody edit the feedback, the seller could look pretty stupid if positive feedback was left and the transaction soured later.

Thanks my thoughts exactly...a buyer can prove thru paypal/credit card records anything that is disputed.

Anything agaist the seller though, its my word vs theirs.

First. According to eBay. Feedback isn't mandatory.

Also, according to eBay you should leave feedback for the buyer once he/she pays. DON'T DO IT.

Very few sellers do that, since reputation is far more important to the seller than to a buyer.

A buyer with a poor reputation can always "snipe" an auction at the last minute, since the only way to exclude bad buyers is to specifically state something in the auction (no newbs or x% rep required) or eliminate their bids and/or block them. Once an auction is over, you have to sell to them.

I recently had an "undesirable" buyer who sniped an auction. (dude gave out loads of negative rep...nitpicking for scratches or bumps) and contacted eBay to nullify the auction and couldn't. I sent him an email stating basically telling him I was on to him and that I had contacted eBay about him and offering a full refund if the item wasn't to his satisfaction. So...everything went fine.

I suggest:

1) State your feeback policy in you auctions or follow ups.. I usually tell buyers to leave feedback to know that the product arrived and checked out...and I'll do the same.

2) Comment on this guy's feedback. (He'll probably comment on yours...but what the heck). Neither you or he can change the rating of the feedback.

...BTW...I am ONEUPPER on eBay also, so bid with confidence!

I'm doing better selling through Amazon, I've got several books I've sold... It's been better than Ebay, but on the Bay I've got 11 feedback and a 100% positive.

I'm at 278 with a 99.6% feedback. Most of that is from selling, but I haven't sold anything in about a year.

As I was trying to support my way through college, I got into selling concert tickets for about a year and a half. I started after I was able to buy a pair of Kenny Chesney tickets that I soon found I could sell for 5X face value. I also soon found out that it wasn't always that easy, although it did supplement my income nicely for a while. I never got into sporting events as it was just too hard for someone with limited resources, but I was able to use the tactics I learned to score some nice Reds opening day tickets. :)

I agree with you 100% on that. Amazon is WAY better for books, unless you are trying to sell a "lot". Easy (free) listing and listings last like 60 days. Pretty good for DVDs, too.

You're right about me not selling anything right now. I just do auctions to clean out my closet and drawers, from time to time.
