    Default As a buyer do you leave feedback first?

    I've been shopping at eBay for awhile and found that most sellers just refuse to leave feedback unless they get one, positive of course, first. At this point, I have enough 100% positive feedback as a buyer not to really need more but still it kind of bothers me to leave feedbacks first. Sometimes I get solicited after a good transaction asking for feedback with a promise of getting one in return. That kind of spoils it for me. Why don't they just leave me one then ask if they want it so badly? I always pay same day with paypal so there's no problems on my end. If feedbacks are a negotiable exchange, it loses meaning as a tool of evaluation. I'm tempted to give these sellers neutral when they ask without leaving me one since they got my money first.

    On certain occasions, I will give in and leave feedback first, or if I'm really impressed with a service. But then the seller chooses not to give me one and that makes me mad. Even though I can understand sellers, especially new ones, wanting positive feedback to build a reputation, it kind of rubs me the wrong way. Am I being too sensitve? If there's no problems, do you all leave positive feedback first on your purchases?

    As a seller, I leave feedback AFTER the buyer does to make sure they are satisfied with the item. But, I do HATE when sellers ask for feedback...it's annoying. I will leave them feedback when I get my item!

    Ohhh I hate when the sellers ask for positive feedback in their auctions. That really bothers me to no end. I will leave them feed back when I receive my item in the mail.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    I normally send a message the seller telling them that I've received the item and I'm happy with it and I'm going to leave a positive feedback and would they mind leaving a feedback as well if they found the transaction to be a positive one.

    I've been lucky that all the sellers I've dealt with have been super nice. I normally only buy from powersellers or those with more than 50 feedbacks.

    This is exactly how I do it also, and it almost always works great.

    Default Re: As a buyer do you leave feedback first?

    As a buyer, I usually just leave feedback when I get my item. I think sellers are more desperate nowadays because the only feedback they can leave is good feedback. So I suppose they worry about leaving feedback and then the buyer being super mean or unreasonable. I once got negative feedback because the person who bought my item lived in another country and they were charged customs tax. I had never sold anything to anyone outside the US before and I just wrote down on the customs form what the mail person at the post office told me. I had already left the buyer nice feedback and then I got slapped in the face with that. They didn't even ask me about it, they just left negative feedback. IDK... I suppose it is annoying that sellers ask for feedback. But I can also understand why they do. Because the only thing they can do is not submit feedback for the buyer.

    It doesn't bother me at all. But I always leave an honest review. After all, if the transaction went well, you should leave a positive feedback. This is something we all look at anyway when shopping...

    Default Re: As a buyer do you leave feedback first?

    As a buyer, I usually leave feedback as soon as I've received the item and looked it over, confirmed authenticity, etc.

    As a seller, I usually wait for the buyer to leave feedback/acknowledge that they received the item and liked it before I leave feedback myself, in case there are any problems that should be taken care of before feedback is exchanged.

    I used to send the seller a message when I recieved the item to build up my feedback a bit, but now I just leave it first, only about half of them send it back though which is a bit annoying!

    Default Re: As a buyer do you leave feedback first?

    As a buyer I leave feedback almost immediately after I receive my item. As a seller, I used to leave feedback right after I received payment but I now I leave feedback after the buyer confirms that they have received the item. If the item should have arrived by a certain date and nothing from the buyer, I send a message confirming that they have received it. If they say they have, I leave feedback. If they say they haven't, I ask them to let me know when they receive it.

    I always leave feedback first and I sell professionally and personally. I find it's common courtesy to let the seller know everything is fine before they reciprocate.
