hi,

i bought something of ebay, paid straight away via paypal, now the seller never sent anything, got in touch or anything.

i went to do an item not received but because it was paid via paypal the dispute was passed to them, so i did that, no comunication was had again from seller (even though he has been still using his acount so he had internet access, basicaly his item sold to cheap and he never put any reserve on so wasnt happy i think) so paypal agreed with me and took the money back of the seller so all good there.

heres the thing, if i now neg fedback him, can he still return the neg?(though i done nothing wrong, i mean in retaliation) as it wasnt disputed through ebay. or if i provided them with the paypal outcome could they block/remove any retaliation he gives?

i know ive got my money back so could let it go but hes mesed me about, had my money for the month its took to sort out so feel he should get it...

thanks

Unfortunately he can still give you negative rep and ebay won't remove the negative feedback regardless of the fact it's not justified. If you and the seller agree to remove it, it can be mutually withdrawn although I believe the comment remains.

If you are left a negative when you shouldn't, you can respond to the comment but it's not that much use.

I think that the person can return the feedback.
Best thing to do, should you want a clean slate, is to leave it until the last day feedback can be left and leave it then.
On the other hand, you could leave it anyway and see what happens.

I've been in the same position & left someone a neutral for messing me around (similar to your situation) and of course they did the same right back to me.

I would go with the above advice - work out when would be the last possible day you can leave feedback then bang it in & hope he aint watching his ebay.

This is why i think the ebay feedback system is a little flawed, you should be able to leave bad feedback without fear of retaliation, especially as you have won the dispute.
Im sure the resident ebay expert 'dinosteveus' will be along shortly with some good advice........

If your just a buyer then you shouldnt worry about feedback too much

agreed, if you're not using your account to sell then do it anyway! Use a seperate account to sell stuff.

Feedback means diddley squat on ebay now. Nobody reads it or takes notice of it. If a buyer wants something from a seller and they have a few negs it ain't gonna put them off and vice versa.

I have to disagree. I read responses to neg feedback to help me decide if a buyer/seller is genuine or just somebody who messes people about.

especially if you reply to the neg feedback with 'retalitory feedback- paid for item, never sent, no comms from seller, refunded via pypal claim' If I was going to buy from you and saw that, i'd think you were legit. We've all had ebay problems...

I personally don't think it's much use, the negative feedback shouldn't be there in the first place and I've seen transactions with a negative feedback for both seller and buyer, both have responded to the feedback claiming it was the other participant's fault but I have no idea which one is telling the truth.

Think the 90 day thing is quite loose so don't think that just because you've done it on the 90th day they won't be able to do it back to you!
