ebay and feedback - Can someone please explain
So, this is a general topic, but it pertains to aroid buyers and sellers as much as any other group so why not post here. I've noticed a lot of aroid sellers indicating that they will leave feedback once they receive feedback. Does this seem totally backward to anyone else besides me?? As soon as you pay you can expect feedback at almost anytime....you held up your end of the bargain after all....you PAID!! The only obvious reason for doing it the way that some sellers are is to hold you hostage and prevent you from leaving negative feedback if the plant/seed/tuber is garbage on arrival.....the old, you leave negative feedback for me and I will leave it for you scam. There are various problems with ebay of course, but even the feedback scheme has become a total scam if you the buyer...the one that paid the money after all....is held hostage by the threat of negative feedback if you dare to say that the plant was not as offered.
Just a rant on a Tuesday evening :o) Dan
