RSS eBay feedback monitoring

No primary category set

TameBay readers are always resourceful and one pointed me to a neat feedback tool this week. It’s basically a feedback tool to enable you to be notified by an RSS feed whenever someone leaves feedback for you.

“One tool I have been using for the past 4 month which is wicked is this Yahoo Pipe. This allows me to monitor via RSS feed my positive neutral and negative feedback on a drop down on my browser. Useful for eTRS and general monitoring of your status. I can also access this information on the go with my Blackberry RSS feed syndicator”.

The tool is a Yahoo! Pipe, which are tools to allow you to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web. This tool has been set up to monitor feedback simply by entering an eBay User ID and eBay site.

What you can also do with this tool is monitor a competitors feedback via RSS. If you want to know how much feedback your competition is receiving and want to monitor multiple competitors accounts you can set them all up as RSS feeds in your RSS reader. From then on, whenever any of those competitors is left feedback, you’ll be notified of it in your RSS reader.

  1. I dedicate enough to ebay as it is than monitoring for some tard leaving me a neg. Id rather spend the time on my own site than bother with this.

  2. Lets get this right. Every Time I or the competitors that I have listed get Feedback A Drop Down tells me about it. I get annoyed when every second or so a Drop Down appears often for no reason. Why would I want another one and one that is likely to appear every day several times(unfortunately more for my competitors than for me). As northumbrian says if I want to look at my Feedback all I have to do is click.

  3. Sounds interesting to me, not for myself but using it to look at other sellers feedback could highlight a product or price point that I am not competing with.

  4. All very well but I have no idea what this has to do with google? I have never used RSS so I have no idea how to set it up or where to get a RSS from. A google search of RSS does not find a reader to download. Where am I supposed to get the URL for a web site’s RSS feed? This seems more hassle than it’s worth.

  5. still dont see the point unless your selling for glory not money
    feedback is unbalanced anyhow
    we auto feedback on payment. it could be Gaddafi buying from us and leaving feedback we dont know or care
