Yeah, I'm not sure I'd use automated feedback either -- unless, as nightowls describes, I could create a bunch of stock feedback. But even then I'm not so sure. I'd be afraid it would seem canned (probably doesn't matter, really).
Right now I don't wait for the buyer to leave feedback but I do wait until I see the item has been delivered.
So I just have to play catch-up once or twice a month by going through my "needs feedback" paperwork.
I'm not crazy about this because it piles up and because some customers get antsy about the reciprocal feedback they're expecting.
Is there any way I'm missing to set up notices at eBay for either (a) when buyers leave feedback for me, or (b) when packages are delivered? Seems like that would be super helpful.
Any other tips?
