Ebay – two steps forward, one back..

Regular visitors to this sleepy backwater may remember that I had totally undeserved bad feedback left (as a buyer) in retaliation for bad feedback left for the seller, musicmakernc, when he failed to honour an ebay Soprano sale.

Ebay are now modifying their system so that a seller cannot leave bad feedback for a buyer, in the hope of encouraging more honest feedback. Good Move. Unfortunately, as an occasional seller myself, it means that I can’t even leave bad feedback for a non-paying buyer. Hmmm…

Also – as I read it – good feedback ‘percentages’ are now based just on the previous years trading, but I assume the numbers keep going (?), and multiple purchases from the same seller count as more that just one feedback. More details here.
