I have an excellent record with ebay and have had no issues until now with buyers. Ebay has really let some shit join the site.
Sorry to hear that Clinton. At least you didn't send the parts then find that out. Could be a symptom of though times...maybe they thought they could buy..then their credit was not approved?

You used to be able to set up your auctions where only approved bidders could actually place a bid..

I've had zero problems on Ebay. One or two minor things but I've always got them solved with no problems.

I stopped using ebay almost 2 years ago. They changed their payment method to sellers and that did it.
I rather use Craigslist. Person to person, immediate exchange of goods and money and no fees. Otherwise, I buy stuff on line from the companies. Ebay is not what it used to be. Simply put, it's not worth the hassle.

Yep -- THAT is what happened to eBay. No negative feedback for Buyers.

How many sellers are out there using separate 'buyer accounts' to pull all the competing sales out of the auctions for a few weeks while they sell their items?

I had a guy "no-pay" me, and he had the bawlz to re-list the item he'd won from me (with a reserve). Guess I became this guy's 2-week warehouse (if it didn't sell, he's out nothing more than fees and I'm stuck holding his "exclusive option to buy" merchandise).

No negative feedback for buyers = bad news for eBay sellers.

I thought there was some other "ranking site" out there that was (unofficially, of course) holding the negative seller list -- anyone seen it ?

the no buyer feedback is stupid...BUT it always ticked me off when a seller would hold my "buyer feedback" hostage until I left feedback for the seller...generally the seller knows if the buyer is legit and has paid before the buyer even gets the merchandise, so the seller should have to leave feedback first...I always did when I sold

but the place is a wasteland now...there aren't 1/2 the good sellers there were a couple years ago...and all it is anymore is small businesses selling new products, no more regular people selling used stuff from their garage, know what I mean?
