The sites a joke, its lost its community roots and become one big bill board for the highest payers, I would not even mind but its the ridiculousness of trying to hide that fact that voting means anything anymore.
I agree with different rules for different experts. I had a brief look over the past week or so, I came across 3 deals with under 10,000 feedback, I posted some in the past and they removed it, but the reason given was either the business was registered out of The UK, or the seller was not a major business. One of my deals was for a Dyson with lots of feedback but the business was in Germany even the postage was from The UK. I came across various reasons deals were removed, some stranger than other...
I've had plenty of ebay deals removed because of supposed low feedback (HUKD do have a minimum needed) I did search through posted ebay links here for the last week and only this and one other posted by the same user had under 10,000. Not having a go at anyone btw, just seems it's a different ruleset for these "experts"
Plenty ebay deals posted here under 10,000 feedback, so don't think you need 10,000+. Not sure if you're referring to negative feedback related to the product or the seller, but seller has nearly 97% positive feedback, does not seems that bad. Currys has considerably more reviews, better feedback, but I hardly believe there are many sellers worse than Currys.
Better off going to a charity shop, got a sofa and recliner for less than this.
