::: Again...

I've just sold 3 items: 2 LPs and 1 cd.

Via Mexican Post Service web site, I can confirm that those were signed for delivery in hand.

So I'm 100% sure those dickheads received their items, so why they don't leave a feedback comment?

How can we build a reputation with this kind of things? Confused

In my 16 years of selling on eBay 74.598% of my buyers have left feedback for me. Perhaps the other 25% are just too lazy…

And what about when they complain in their positive feedback.
Example: I sell a toy model of a Star Wars ship and in my description give its dimensions.
Buyer leaves positive feedback, but their comment is "Wish I knew it was so small before I bought it"

::. ha ha ha these replies made me laugh

One of the guys contacted me: "I liked the record, thank you. I'll post feedback later"....so, if you're actually answering me with the eBay's message system, why you just don't go and post me a positive, you moron?? Evil or Very Mad

I always send a nice email requesting feedback after a transaction has been completed and I have left my feedback.
I will continue to send several requests, spaced at least a week apart until I get my feedback.
It works 99% of the time and my feedback score is now over 1000.
I say that it would be only half that if I didn't ask for the feedback.

I leave all of my buyers positive feedback immediately upon payment (after all they've completed their end of the deal),
ship item out and move on to selling the next item(s). I'm somewhat perplexed by people's obsession with these
numbers…just sayin'.

You are evaluated by your feedback numbers. Both as a seller and as a buyer. Having a high number and a high percentage (100%) gives both sides something to judge the trustworthiness of the other with, seeing as we do not have an opportunity to meet. It is your public face/facade that is put forth in the auction community. How else to judge whether a dealer is shifty or honest? Maybe not a perfect system, but it does work well for the situation.

Feedback is a big deal to me too, but I never push or ask people to leave it - people just don't like being told to do things, and a positive FB could be accompanied by a retaliatory 'soft positive' comment or a ding on DSRs. Besides, once you have established a base of good feedback, receiving no feedback is as good as positive feedback (unless you've got numbers to improve).

Not being a seller, I'd like to throw in a view from the other side....

There are lots of times where a seller will not bother to leave feedback as well. Just recently, I purchased something online for a buddy of mine. He was happy with the purchase, so I left the seller positive feedback. It's been two or three weeks, and I have yet to have the seller return the favor.

In my opinion, the seller should be the first to leave feedback. The buyer is the one who gave them the money, so why should they have to leave feedback first?

Either way, there is no "right" answer to this. I certainly dig the sellers getting peeved, but it happens on both sides of the fence. Personally, as I said before, I usually wait for the seller to leave feedback. After that happens, I ALWAYS leave them positive feedback. It's rare that I leave feedback first, and as mentioned before with my most recent purchase, I have yet to have the seller do the same.

Come to think of it, the few times I have left feedback first for the seller, I don't think the seller EVER left me feedback.

Just my two cents.
