I've had to set up a new ebay account due to my account being hi-jacked. As a result I have zero feedback. I've made a few transactions recently, have paid as soon as the auction has ended (bar one where it was 2 days after), and left feedback as soon as the goods arrived.
I have not received any feedback from the sellers. Is there a time frame in which they should leave feedback? I want to see my feedback score go up as people don't trust buyers/sellers with no feedback.
Another thing to consider that although it is my e-bay account we paid using my husbands paypal account. Is there a chance the feedback has been left with him, or should that not matter?
TIA...I've not e-bayed for a few years and have forgotten all of this.
Some sellers leave feedback in batches, maybe once a week or once a month, so maybe you will eventually get your feedback.
It is, as mentioned, optional.
I'd advise avoiding the temptation to ask for feedback - you may get feedback you don't want! A lot of sellers get annoyed when getting messages asking for feedback - myself included.
I've just left feedback for something I bought in the middle of June. Completely forgot about it (Perhaps I'm one of the ones you were waiting to hear from lol) I suppose if you just have had people buying who are not on regularly it may take them longer to return the feedback. Would aree that perhaps a little reminder would be a good thing.
The real problem with pestering for feedback is that whilst the buyer just has this one transaction on their mind, the seller has numerous transactions on the go, all needing listing, invoicing, posting as well as feedbacking.
Many sellers leave feedback in batches, maybe once a week or once a month. It's the only sensible way for a lot of sellers; you can't keep breaking off one job to tend to another and so on and so forth, or you'll never get anything done. Getting nothing done can be the difference between making a living and 'not'.
If a seller is working away listing or invoicing and receives a message from ebay, the reaction is to stop what you're doing and open up the message, thinking that maybe it is a question that will lead to a sale or indeed a sale that needs to be tended to and dispatched. To find that it is nothing but a "I've left you feedback can you please leave some for me" does, quite understandably pee you off. I leave feedback in batches, all in one go. I will not break off from my work to leave the odd one there and then (because of a pesky message) just as I won't jump up to defrost the freezer in the middle of changing a nappy - surely it makes sense to leave the freezer until the designated defrosting day?
Every buyer gets their feedback from me on batch day. There have been a couple of occasions where a buyer has pestered ridiculously for it and I've ended up blocking them and leaving no FB at all.
