    i worked for ebay long ago. they supposedly will only remove feedback if you send them a legal writ claiming it's defamation of character. powersellers have templates they use to get negative feedback removed daily using this method

    feedback system is a joke, you should expect retards to give you shitty feedback for no reason on ebay. or for competitors to mass buy your stuff, then leave you negative feedback spam and harass you for returns or rip you off. when I worked there guitar resellers did this to each other all the time

    Some people on ebay are unbelievable. At the very least I would reply to the feedback saying you gave the buyer a full refund and ask the buyer to revise their feedback.

    I got my first negative by someone who got the item and was happy with it but confused me with another seller.

    When I politely contacted them and asked if they would change the feedback I got ignored. I even sent out a request but they never followed up. I got one email in return saying sorry about the mix up but you have so many positives one negative isn't a big deal.

    I really dislike the fact that ebay took away the option of leaving bad bidders negative feedback. Not because retaliating would have fixed things in this case but it just seems now there are a small portion of bidders out there who feel, "hey they can only leave me positive feedback and I can do whatever I want so I don't care"

    Just so you know my experience:
    I am an ebay gold powerseller.
    When I first started on ebay, I was very worried about feedback. When I first got promoted to Preferred Seller (20% discount and priority listings) then I really worried about my feedback.
    Then I realized how many buyers use the system to screw sellers. They make ridiculous requests always holding the threat of negative feedback over a sellers head. When I mess something up, I go above and beyond to fix it. But I do not indulge in this feedback blackmail bull. Anyway, got a few negative feedbacks, and actually lost my preferred seller last month. Losing the 20% discount (went to 8) sucked, but I have seen no decrease in sales volume or profit because of it. Try not to get obsessed with feedback. its a horrible system for sellers and you will cause yourself tons of stress dealing with every little thing like this.
