That is NOT an ebay policy! Part of the feedback process is shipping.

Hi,

This is Wrong Information. What is the Purpose of Feedback, if you offer it before getting the Stuff. This is Actually a Trick to get Positive Feedback to get Powerful Seller Tag.Once you leave the Feedback, you cannot change it to Negative. However, in case, you left a Negative Feedback, the Seller could send you a Form to negotiate and then you could change it to Positive.


Read :-

http://pages.ebay.com/services/forum/changes.html

It clearly states :-

Buyers should wait to leave Feedback for sellers until after they receive the item.

I hope it is clear that, he is trying to Play with words.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

That is not an eBay policy. Your seller might be talking about the PayPal payment hold. It is the hold or freezing of the payment that you made in PayPal and there are three ways that the seller can get a hold of the payment.
The seller should meet either one of the requirements below:

1. The seller will need to wait 21 days and the hold will be removed.
2. If the seller will provide tracking number to PayPal, the payment will be released after 4 days.
3. Or if the buyer will leave Positive Feedback, which I do not recommend for yo

    which I do not recommend for you to do since you don't have the item yet.

    If you will not receive the item after 7-10 days and the seller is being persistent to not sending the item due to his/her own way of eBay policy, I suggest that you need to file for the unpaid item dispute. That way you will get your money back.

You might want to read this link from the EBAY site. You can always get any question about ebay answered under Community tab upper right corner. Then click on Answer center. That is where I got this info. you might also let the seller know that you are going to report him to ebay for not shipping item. It is not your fault that PayPal is holding his money.

It is not a new ebay policy or I would have to do it on every thing I sell on EBAY.

I want to give feedback to a seller on my paypal account


How to leave feedback the RIGHT way 18af_7.jpg?set_id=81 Published by mutti74 October 26, 2013 . 14K Views . 2 Comments . 79 Votes So you finally gave in and bought something on ebay? WAY TO GO! Welcome to the world of endless deals and bargains!
Are you happy with your purchase?
Answer: YES! I love it!
Awesome, now lets let the seller know. The easiest way to leave feedback is to simply go back to the page of the actual item. Either type in the item number and click search OR go to MY EBAY and look under "All Buying" under "Won" and click on the item.
Once you get to the page, look towards the top, it'll say LEAVE FEEDBACK, simply click on that and Voi'La you are ready to leave feedback.
Since you are happy with your purchase, rate POSITIVE and write you comments in, such as: "Fast shipping, very happy with purchase." or "Great product, excellent communication!"
We are not done yet, Ebay has integrated a STAR system to rate sellers. You can rate 1-5 stars on "Item as described", "Communication", "Shipping Time" and "Shipping & Handling Charges".
Here is a tip about shipping and handling charges. Sometimes you may not be happy with those charges, KEEP ON MIND: Whatever you bought could have been shipped from the opposite side of the country (or even from another country), so OF COURSE they may be higher than having it sent from 1 end of a state to the other hand!! Those actual shipping charges are out of sellers hands.
All set with your rating? Simply leave feedback and DONE! Easy, fast and simple.
Now......a STRONG REMINDER. I often browse through ebay guides and reviews and TOO MANY buyers mistaken this area for contacting the sellers. This REVIEW and GUIDE area has NOTHING TO DO with leaving feedback or communicating with sellers!!!!! Follow the above steps to properly leave feedback.
What if you are not happy? Follow the above steps to get to your items page and click on (right side of page) CONTACT seller and email them. Whether it is a breakage or the item has not arrived yet. Give the seller some time to resolve the issue and to respond back before leaving neutral or negative feedback. I am a seller myself, as well as buyer. I ONLY result in leaving neutral or negative feedback if:
A: I have a non-paying bidder (new ebay rules NO LONGER permit sellers leaving negative feedback to non-paying bidders, so sellers really have no way of warning others anymore)
B: I bought something, it arrived broken or did not arrive at all, and the seller NEVER responded to NUMEROUS emails over a 2 week period, plenty of time to respond and rectify.
C: The seller told me basically something like "oh well, not my problem".
IF the seller responds and rectifies the mishap by either refunding money or sending out a duplicate item, there is NO reason for me to leave a bad feedback since the seller took care of me in a satisfactory manner.
Personally leaving a neutral feedback would be perhaps if the item I bought took a very long time to arrive (remember overseas purchases do take longer to arrive). If I bought something, lets say from a seller in California and I paid for Parcel Post. That takes 2-9 BUSINESS days. If I am sitting here a month later and the item finally arrives, thats a tad extra long in waiting time. If the seller does not communicate any delay in shipping, that calls for a neutral. WHY NOT LEAVE A NEGATIVE, you ask??? You received the item, riiiight? :o) That is why I would leave a neutral and not a negative.
This takes me to another point, bare with me: CHECK THE SELLERS FEEDBACK!!!!
(Simply click on the number next to the sellers name)
Look at their feedback score, the percentage!!!! If a seller has numerous neutral or negative feebacks in the last 30 days...STAY AWAY!!! Read their feedback and why people left bad feedback.
If a seller has less than 100% positive feedback, check why and how long ago they received a negative feedback, it could have been over a new ebayer not knowing how to properly leave feedback even, one of the reason I am writing this here.
Unfortunately only about 4 out of every 10 buyers leave feedback nowadays, so do not be upset if a seller only leaves feedback once they have received feedback from a buyer. It is a common just-practice.
10/2013 Please note: Ebay's push to offer free shipping on all items and charging an extra fee to sellers if they charge shipping has made the ebay market somewhat unstable and less fun for us sellers. I understand that big companies can offer free shipping on many items and sellers offer it a lot on lightweight items. Please do not expect and let it out on the seller via leaving neutral or negative feedback, if a seller charges shipping on dishes that weigh 5# and sell for only $10. Private part time sellers are here to make some money too, so paying for the item and eating all the quadruple ebay/ paypal fees and shipping the item out for free is just simply unreasonable.

Basic set up to sell items


Follow the tips for Successful Selling on eBay which help you to increase sell on eBay.



1. Your first step towards becoming an eBay seller is to set up an eBay account

2. The preferred method of payment for many eBay users is PayPal, so you should also consider setting up a PayPal account

3. Many eBay buyers may be hesitant to purchase from a seller without a rating, so you may want to purchase a few items through the website to establish a rating

4. Having a high feedback score can make you eligible for listing discounts and better listing placements

5. Be aware of what items you are prohibited from selling on eBay

6. Adding photos of your sale item to the listing page usually increases the chance that people will bid on it

7. Make sure that your listing title is free from spelling errors, accurately represents the item you are selling and contains key words that buyers will be likely to use in their search

8. Do some research on shipping costs and methods so you can provide prospective buyers with a shipping cost or estimate

9. Leave feedback for your buyers and ask that they do the same for you

10. Shipping items promptly and responding to all inquiries in a timely manner will increase the chances that you will receive positive feedback

How is the best way to get started on ebay.?


Hi,

I'm sure you can find some pointers on eBay itself, but I will give my 2 cents for what it's worth.

1) Choose a username and GOOD password when you sign up.

2) Get a PayPal account and get it verified. Paypal is the easiest and most used form of buying and selling.

3) Know your products if you are selling. Give accurate and complete descriptions. Be honest about them too.

4) Ask questions if you are buying and are not sure of something.

5) Use GOOD photos whenver possible. Don't use grainy, low resolution pictures.

6) Give feedback. That is how you are "rated" in the eBay world. If someone only has a Feedback rating of under 90%, I would be cautious. Of course you can view anyones feedback and see comments.

I hope that gives you a start. Happy eBaying.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. You can look at my figures if you wish. I use the same username as I use here.
PPS. Please consider rating this solution as this is the way we are rated on Fixya. Thanks!

Hi Michelle, The transaction was outside of Ebay so you will not be able to leave feedback for this seller. He/she will also be aware of this. But it does not stop you from communicating you satisfaction to the seller. If he wishes he can display your text on the site in his future descriptions of items as testimonies anyway.

Nothing. You agreed to allow PayPal to arbitrate in such matters.
If you fully documented the items, make sure the items are actually the ones you sold and not switched. Fedral law may apply if the buyer/thief is in a different state.

How to list on ebay


If you are a motivated person you can list on ebay. I find reading showed me the way. You can read easy steps on ebay to set it up. Then you have to set up a Pyapl acct which is free. www.paypal.com. Once you do this you need to apply for the Debit Card not the Credit Card. This way when you have card you can access your money from eaby. You can also get a book for really cheap on half.com. The ebay bible is a great book with illustrations. You can hit list once you register with ebay. There is a easy 1 2 3 like setup for new people to guide you through. Just be informative as you can, describe any flaws. Take a good picture so you can put on your listing. Figure out your shipping help at usps.com you can do flat rate which is price you decide or calculated which depends on where customer is and what they choose. Always put info about your shipping policuy and return policy. You might want to go and buy some wallpaer background for a penny just to get a couple positive feedback which will help you get people wanting to buy from you. I could go on and on i hope i helped you rebekkah1436@yahoo.com
