Heard about this on the radio today, which is bad news for sellers IMO. Means buyers can get away with not paying, and go out of their way to leave negative feedback with nothing in exchange. From my experience, ebay is totally naf at dealing with negative feedback comments.

I guess it stops sellers signing up, and buying cheap goods just to get feedback. Although, this was slightly overcome by the $1 minimum store inventory listing.

Here is my take on the new feedback rule.

When a buyer pays for the item but has not received it, the buyer has completely fulfilled their obligations to the eBay community. Thus, they should receive positive feedback. They bought and paid for the item, However, alot of sellers play this game of 'feedback hostage,' where they hold out the specter of no feedback or even negative feedback.

I truly believe that once a buyer pays for an item your suppose to leave good feedback but then again if the buyer paid 1-2 weeks late then negative feedback should be left to warn other sellers.

This is what the new feedback system is trying to fix. Now those same buyers can pull the same move without having to worry about you giving them negative feedback back. Problem solved.

^^You know what neg feedback is not even a problem for buyers. Did you forget a buyer has throw away accounts. They can care less about feedback.

Basically so what if you neg a buyer, why would they care. They can always make a new account and use their exact same information. Ebay doesnt looks at buyers accounts like they do seller accounts.

Default U.K. Test-- Court of Peers for FB???

eBay UK has cancelled plans to test a new program called Community Court, a system for dealing with unfair feedback. Users first heard of the new system in October in the eBay Business Newsletter that eBay UK sends to PowerSellers. Community Court was designed so that eBay members in the UK who received negative feedback ratings from trading partners could let a jury of other eBay members decide if the feedback was fair or not. If 70 of the 100 jurors felt the negative feedback was unfair, eBay would have removed the feedback. A "hung jury" would have resulted in no action.

I have had my share of crappy buyers. From threathening you to pulling every trick known, its the buyers who scare me more then the sellers.
I usually always give a return guarantee and it never seems to fail that a few buyers plays that bait and switch crap with me. I send them a good item and I get a piece of crap back.
This is not good news, I can see buyers now holding sellers hostage and use this as a tool against us. PAY OR MY SHIPPING OR I WILL LEAVE A NEGATIVE FOR YOU... I can see it coming.

Why would they care? Have you ever seen the reaction of ppl you neg even justifiably? Please.

At present people with 0 feedback and really low feedback already will neg without care.

People who are selling on the same account they buy from will never leave neg or neutral first. Even if they neg when the easy retaliation is gone, they know you can get a new account and neg them.

I thought squaretrade was a separate company, but giving ebay kickbacks. This may have changed.

What I fear is bribery. Before, buyers could say "if you leave me negative, I'l leave you negative". I can see it turning into the buyer saying "if you don't leave me positive, I'l leave you negative", and there is nothing the seller can do.

Rediculous.
