    Glad to hear it. But you 'would' concede that there are many dishonest sellers on ebay who should be avoided?

    Best regards,

    He wanted a 65% discount. 10-20% is no problem for me.

    I learned from a past employer. I used to work for a Korean owned printing company. The owner told me always add 10% to any Korean customers price (I did all the pricing) Seems Koreans always find fault with something and love it when they get a 10% discount.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    It has been a number of years since I did eBay. In the year before my pre-planned retirement I went whole hog on building up my silver reserves - long time silver lover before the Hunt Brothers! I had only one issue in my many transactions - didn't receive the item. The seller immediately responded, refunded my money, and took the loss himself.

    I feel sorry for his loss, but came out unscathed myself. Just a glitch along the way.

    And YES, I'm still holding that expensive silver - the $50 stuff.....

    Is my $50 silver better than your $10 silver?

    Dishonest sellers on Ebay generally don't stay there long.

    Regardless of ebay's policies (and I can well live without ebay), I accept four responsibilities as a buyer pertaining to the customer-vendor covenant:

    1) A buyer should make prompt payment
    2) A buyer should provide a valid shipping address
    3) A buyer should maintain good communication (if necessary) and conduct himself in a responsible and non-abusive manner
    4) A buyer should know 'exactly' what is on offer before committing to purchase or make a bid. No buyer's remorse or 'I didn't see the fine print.'

    Other than these, in what possible way could I be obligated to a seller?
    Number 3 & 4 are the ones buyers routinely ignore. If I remember correctly the original post mentioned the 1st two & left out 3 & 4 as buyers obligations. I couldn't begin to count the number of times I've had a buyer not read the description and/or look at the pictures, get the item, see something they missed and immediately become aggressive, abusive, rude, and/or a combination of the 3. I describe every flaw I see & post clear photos. I'd rather make an item sound worse than it is than the opposite. Not to mention that I also offer a full refund upon return of any item. Absolutely no reason for a buyer to be an ass until I refuse to fix the problem. That's why I'm not willing to leave feedback until the buyer has either left feedback themselves or let me know they are satisfied through the eBay messaging system. It doesn't make sense to reward someone with positive feedback when there's no way of knowing if they are going to be the next nightmare.

    I don't generally mention this because I don't like to give people ideas but blocking a bad buyer is pretty much pointless. If they want to buy the item all they have to do is log in as a guest and buy it that way.

    If I sell, I leave feedback when I get around to it, if I buy I do not expect feedback, if they give fine, if they don't that fine also. almost 20 years on ebay 100% feedback from buying and selling.Same for Amazon, I give reviews when I feel like it, amazon will only print the good reviews, I guess they don't like it when you say the Chinese products are junk.

    Seems like neither sellers or buyers rarely leave feedback. There's been a few times I've had to send a message to sellers about leaving feedback (and some buyers as well). The seller should leave feedback after payment is cleared and buyer should leave feedback after they get the item and once they inspect it and is satisfied with it. About 10% of ebay users leave feedback these days.

    I’ve been a member for at least twenty years and have only lost a few hundred $ to sellers not sending their items. I was leaving feedback each time but my dealings w/ ebay have been pretty slim lately, still waiting for a low dollar item and it’s been over a month now.
