The Seller should leave feedback first. Feedback should be given on how the person handles the transaction. If the buyer responds and pays quickly, feedback should be left as soon as the proverbial check clears..
Thats not how its done, there is alof of feedback extortion on ebay, sellers who dont leave feedback until a positive is recieved, and that shouldnt happen
yeah, because if you leave them a negative, they will leave you one right back
Even if you payed for the auction 2 seconds after it ends... they hold it over your head until they get what they want. If you dont leave feedback, they will probably do the same to you, and just not leave it.
When I sell, I leave feedback as soon as I get the money.
When I buy, I leave feedback on how the seller handled the transaction. I dont care if they leave a negative on me anymore, because I can reply to it, and anyone who investagates the people they buy from, will easily see that I held up my end of the bargain, the other end didnt.
I've seen some sellers say they used to leave FB first, but ran into the problem of sometimes buyers leaving pre-mature neg FB (leaving neg w/out contacting seller with problem). I've always contacted my sellers with any problems, I give them the chance to rectify the situation before leaving FB.
So what if you're the seller, you leave your buyer pos FB, your buyer gets item & goes on & leaves you a neg without ever contacting you first? I've seen a lot of newbie buyers do this.
As a seller I always wait until the package in in the buyers hands before I leave feedback. This way I can say that it all went smoothly. This also lets me leave the feedback after I KNOW that the customer receved it and gives me more options if they try to say they didn't get it when tracking info says they did.
I have a LOT of Newbie buyers on my auctions for some reason. So I let them leave FB first. When I first started & my FB wasn't that high, I would leave it first. But not every buyer would leave me FB. I think most of them figured "hey, I got mine so I don't need to leave any". Now almost all of my buyers leave FB because they want to get their FB.
