eBay Feedback: Changes Coming Soon

eBay Feedback: Changes Coming Soon

So, tell me, are you an avid eBay user? Perhaps you do a lot of buying on eBay or maybe you just like to sell. Either way, eBay is a very popular organization and one of the things that makes it so likeable is its feedback system. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, you can always leave feedback about your experience with eBay, which also leaves some guidelines for future buyers and sellers to follow. However, all of that will be changing within the next few months, so you might as well prepare yourself now. Keep reading for all the juicy details!

Up until now, eBay buyers and sellers were able to publicly voice their opinions about each other, whether it was good or bad. For example, if you bought something from a seller and they didn’t ship it to you in a timely manner, you could let everyone know about it through your feedback. Or, if you sold something to a buyer and they didn’t pay you on time, you could leave negative feedback about them as well. But, starting in May 2008, sellers will no longer be able to leave negative feedback about their buyers under any circumstance whatsoever. Buyers, on the other hand, will be able to post poor feedback about their sellers with no consequence.

Now, although this change may seem a little unfair to the sellers, it really does go both ways. For instance, sellers who charge too much for shipping or who send out broken items will be revealed, which will help cut down on sneaky business tactics. On the other hand, honest sellers will now have to deal with picky buyers who call them out on every little mistake they make. But, in time, all of that will help eBay to become a more honest and secure Web site. It may take some time, but the new feedback system will help clean up eBay and make it a better place to do business. It’s still going to be the same ol’ eBay, but now it will be ten times better!
