So who did leave the last neg?

No primary category set

Somewhere out there some poor buyer today made history, they were the last person ever to receive a negative feedback on eBay UK.

Never again will a buyer receive negative or neutral feedback, a seller now only has the option to leave a positive or simply choose not to leave feedback at all.

Many sellers have indicated that from now on they’ll leave negative comments even though the rating for a buyer will be positive, in fact Toolhaus has a tool specifically to reveal these false positives.

Sellers should proceed with caution however, Brian Burke, Director of Global Feedback Policy, has stated “Negative statements which conflict with a positive rating will be considered Feedback Abuse” (slide 15).

So the end of the neg for a buyer, just two questions remains: As a seller did you leave a neg for a buyer today and who left the last neg?

  1. why not just get over with it and completely change to an amazon like site….we all know what’s happening and there’s nothing we can do about it.

  2. Steve: because buyers like feedback. It’s one of the things that keeps them coming back to eBay… let em collect possies if it keeps em happy 😆

  3. There has been a post on the Q&A board this morning from a buyer who has waited since early April to leave a neg for a UK based seller, but has been somewhat surprised to find they have received a retalitory neg!

    I know the change has not rolled out globally yet, but this seller is registered in the UK, so should not have the neutral or negative options remaining?
