Repeat feedback is live on .com

No primary category set

Brian Burke, eBay’s Director of Feedback Policy has just announced that eBay have “just begun” providing feedback credit for repeat transactions. Buyers and sellers can earn one feedback point per week for transactions with the same trading partner.

Currently, only transactions which took place after Tuesday 19th February are eligible, but in May, repeat transactions going back to 1996 will be re-counted: watch for a shower of shooting stars when that happens.

No doubt there are some people going 🙄 and asking why the number after your ID really matters. And maybe the absolute number doesn’t matter at all. But in the brave new world of eBay 2008, when feedback actually does count for something, it’s nice to see that the ultimate compliment, a returning buyer, will make a visible difference to a seller’s public reputation.

I’m not seeing either an announcement about eBay UK, or a change to our feedback pages yet; let me know if you spot anything.
