quote:Power sellers can have 96 to 98 percent positive feedback--even if they've had 25 negative feedbacks in the last month. A few negatives aren't going to make a dent in all the transactions they've done. Whereas, those same negatives would ruin me.
This is something I've been meaning to ask. A general rule of thumb on eBay seems to be to avoid sellers whose percentage is below -- what? -- 99.6% or something?
I've been wondering if people apply the same standards to sellers whose transactions number in the thousands (sometimes tens of thousands).
And it's true, the feedback system will never work no matter how it's designed. It's like an honor system -- and we all know how well that works. It's only a good idea if everyone is responsible and honest about their feedback.
On the other hand, we'd be screwed without it as well. What can you do?
