It just occurred to me today that people can probably buy/sell/trade positive feedbacks on ebay. I honestly didn't even think about this until just 20 minutes ago. I did some searching and found out it has been going on since the early days when sellers had the power to leave negative feedback. I thought it might have been phased out by Ebay and all their new policies they keep making, but it looks like it's still going strong. I found a bunch of 0.01 cent auctions for silly things like chocolate recipes, cake recipes, a digital image, and all of them say in the description things like, "this auction is not for an item, no shipment will be made, no email sent, it's for local pick up only". And basically, if I'm not mistaken, these people are basically just selling positive feedbacks. Is this legit? Wouldn't ebay become suspicious? Is this some kind of pseudo lingo that all ebayers who want to trade feedbacks know? So instead of saying out publicly, "this auction is for feedback trading", they just say, "this auction is for a cookie recipe, local pick up only"? I'm new to this so forgive me if I'm totally in the dark on this. But I'd love to know how I can sell/buy/trade some positive feedbacks. I thought about buying my own items with my other accounts, but I think that would get you redflagged pretty easily.
