eBay give out brand new feedback stars

No primary category set

ebay-starsIn news which is definitely not of the earth shattering variety, have you noticed that eBay are using redesigned feedback stars on some pages of the site? The change isn’t particularly recent, but sometimes we don’t spot these things straight away.

You’ll still find the original version of the feedback stars sparkling across the site denoting the feedback level they equate to. The new stars lose the black border line and are a little less 3D to give a sharper more modern look.

ebay-old-feedback-starsIf you like the original feedback stars they’re currently appearing on the view item page and a seller’s feedback profile. You should be able to spot the new format stars on a seller’s new eBay shop.

So to the big question, do you like the newer feedback stars or do you prefer the old version? Regardless which version you like (and purely for my sense of consistency) it would be nice if eBay used one or the other instead of mixing up the new with the old.

  1. In all honesty, I don’t think I could care less what the stars look like, and I am quite sure if I had not read this, I may never have even noticed. I am quite sure my customers won’t notice, and will care even less than I do.

    Its about time E-Bay got their act together and sorted out some of the glaring problems with their site and its operation instead of piddling around on the periphery all the time. The E-Bay platform may soon feature in an episode of the Flintstones !

  2. Same as Terry, had not noticed could not care less….

    The mix of old and new is the one constant with Ebay, even some of the new sellers dashboard takes you back to old pages and when clicking on a “view order details” via a buyers message, you get taken to the item listing, not the persons order details as you would expect.

    And the list could go on and on…..

  3. I love reading the angry seller replies on everything eBay here on Tamebay. Any excuse to have a rant and blame eBay for your misery. If you guys put the same effort into your customer service as your keyboard warring you would be a lot happier on eBay.

  4. People have disagreed but I still believe eBay is too big to fail, it can go to the dogs they’ll still turnover billions..

    It’s a poor platform that delivers inconsistent results for its paying customers. It is however still too valuable a source of income to walk away from

    It could just be so much better if they just concentrated on the basics, speed, search, ease of use, checkout, seo.. forget about machine learning and coloured stars !

  5. How about ebay checking buyers addresses when they register to make sure they are correct, now that would be an innovation!

  6. How about the staff from eBay’s art & design department close and transfer the talent into better customer services fro sellers!…

  7. The ‘new’ shooting stars are less distinctive and easier to confuse with the non-shooting version. A difference noted mostly by those of us who just reached shooting star status.
