I got a dvd from ebay last week £1.20 free p&p case and disc in a complete state and was ex rental so left neg feedback not too fussed, got an email today from ebay with an apology and offer of help if needed with the transaction and a £10 voucher off a single item can also cover p&p costs lol

no way, nothing like encouraging neg feedback

Is the £10 off offer from the seller?

To be fair buyers leave negs nowdays, just because they can and can't get … To be fair buyers leave negs nowdays, just because they can and can't get one back. Feedback extortion is rife, it's why a lot of sellers have left.



I agree its too easy for buyers, i don't often leave neg but after contacting the seller to let them know i was not happy but not after a refund i got a very rude reply otherwise i wouldn't have bothered.

sorry just never seen it myself ,Sold hundreds of things on ebay and always post asap and charge reaonable postage and always got good feedback ,I must have just been lucky,

letting only buyers leave neg is good as i have had bad things happen in past and just not left fb at all incase they left me bad but i also think its bad because it means buyers have much more power now, saying that tho now things have changed i dont take as much notice of fb as i used to because i know its pretty one sided and there will only be the odd idiot who leaves neg for no reason most buyers still seem to be playing fair
ebay giving £10 out for leavng bad seems a little silly tho it could encourage some people to do it just for the freebie

I had something similar happen last week, I bought a breathable car cover which I needed as my car was leaking and I wanted the cover to protect it. I wanted a breathable one so that I could leave it on for longer and paid a bit more for this on an ebay auction, after numerous missed promises the cover finally arrived a month later. As it was raining I quickly took the cover out and put it on the car then checked the box afterwards only to find out it was not a breathable one at all. I contacted the seller who said they'd organise a breathable then heard no more unsurprisingly. As I now desperately needed the cover I decided to chalk it down as a bad experience as I couldn't do with sending it away while the car was unprotected and as the cover was already used after one night it wasn't in great condition.

I left appropriate feedback giving the seller one out of five stars for everything as their communication had been rubbish, dispatch time a joke, delivery charge extorionate and the item description completely inaccurate. eBay phoned me up last week asking what had gone wrong then offered 20 pounds for my eBay account as compensation.

I really hope people don't abuse this although I suspect they probably will and it will be withdrawn,
