    Today i wanna share a nice and quick method to obtain positive feedbacks on ebay. It works with new accounts as for old ones, and it doesnt requires you to buy something.

    So here it goes:

    - Look for a seller who sells replicas (branded items at very low prices should attract your attention ) lets say watches for exemple.
    Nevermind if it is an auction or a buy now item, but with a buy now item it will be faster.

    - buy the watch, but dont pay it.

    - then email the seller and tell him that you have made an error and you dont want this watch anymore, ask him to cancel the sale

    - in most cases he wont agree to cancel, and he will ask you to pay for the watch, then reply in saying that you know his item is a replica and you will contact ebay in order to say them he sells fake branded watches and they will ban his account. He knows that it's true.
    AND (here is the best part) tell him that you could make an arrangement and do as if the sale went normally : as to say, ask him to give you a positive feedback for the auction, and you'll then give him one too in return. So it is a winner-winner deal, both of you have positive feedbacks, and you even not bought the item :D

    As usual, rinse and repeat with other replicas sellers.
    I have always succeeded in this method, and many of my feedbacks were made from this.

    Enjoy and please hit thanks if it has helped you, thank you !

    yep it is good for both in fact, even if first we could think that it is not fair for the seller, it is good for him too thanks to the positive feedback you let him

    on ebay.de that doesnt work because u dont see the feedback until u gave one. and its not good for both because the other person have to pay the fees.

    win-win situation? For the buyer it is win, but for the seller definitely NOT! Ok. he will get positive feedback .... but he did NOT sell anything and so he did NOT get money from the buyer, HOWEVER, he will have to PAY insertion and final value fees for NOT selling anything ...

    Its interesting...because now that I am a pretty avid seller...this would piss me off if someone did this to me. It takes time to prepare listings and make them quality (with pictures, considering shipping options, pricing and writing a quality title, etc.)

    This reminds me of the inbox threats I get with people saying "if you dont do such and such...I will send you negative feedback).

    Why dont you just buy a few penny items and keep it moving. Its better, its cheap, and its honestly probably much less trouble.

    But what if it isint...

    and once a person gets a case opened on them, it messes up their ratings...then thats some more nonsense that a seller has to go through, even worse, they may have to give their purchase sources to paypal for proof of legit product...

    Ive had that happen...all legit items...

    They shut down my paypal and I couldnt wire money into my bank...couldnt use my discount shipping...nothing....I was infuriated.

    It's feedback padding and also, feedback extortion. Both will get you kicked off ebay

    If the seller cancels the transaction they don't have to pay the final value fee, all that's lost is the listing fee. Is that correct?

    man this feels kinda rude to me lolz i just purchased some stamps for $1-$2 and around 5-10 transactions, got good number of positive feedback to get going. Also I could sell those stamps on local stamp store for higher price which got my money back to my pocket. Similar can be possible. Also your friends and family members might need something that you can purchase from ebay to build up positive feedback. why rush?

    There is a worse penalty as well. Every time a case is started, you get knocked for top rated-powerseller status. It is new, but you're only allowed to have .5% of your transactions have this kind of case. Anymore than that, then you are not considered for top-rated powerseller status .

    that's one more argument for the powerseller to accept your deal
