Nobody leaves feedback?

I feel like hardly anyone ever leaves me feedback. I usually leave it as soon as I received their item to let them know I got it ok and they never leave it back. Also if I send someone something its like I sometimes even pm them to ask if they got it ok and they never respond. Anyone else have this issue?

I know that since I've been on the app more it's harder to leave feedback. There needs to be an easier way on the app

I would just send them a pm politely asking if they could leave you feedback.

Re: Nobody leaves feedback?

As you can see - i have been here for nearly 5 years () and i have only 53 feedback.... I'm positive I'm missing a LOT of my feedback.... meaning it was never given to me even though i left it. I understand that its annoying, but all you can do is send a polite PM asking for feedback to be left and hope they do. Honestly though having a TON of feedback is over-rated.... i have had good experiences buying from mamas with 2 pos feedbacks and good experiences from mamas with 300+ pos feedbacks..... i've also had bad experiences with each. I guess what i am saying is, try not to let it bother you... as long as you have "some" good feedback people will b/s/t with you and just keep leaving feedback and hope it is returned.

Re: Nobody leaves feedback?

I'm starting to think the buyer shouldn't be leaving the first feedback anyway - the seller should. They receive the payment first so they should make that first feedback about the purchaser being swift with payment, etc.

But I mean, it seems to me that's not how it works...

Buyer leaves feedback first - then hopes to God seller leaves them feedback in return ;P

I wait to make sure the item arrived and the buyer is satisfied before leaving feedback. I know some leave it when shipping, but if something happens, I want to make sure the transaction is complete before leaving feedback.

Re: Nobody leaves feedback?

I have bought stuff and had no feedback left which is annoying. I am new to DS and I want people to know I am trustworthy and I will pay. I always leave feedback from anyone I buy from. I just bought some more stuff this week hopefully they will leave me feedback.

I used to have no problem with mamas leaving feedback ASAP... But lately it does seem like less and less people are doing it, even I leave feedback and ask them to do the same. It's annoying.

yep this. I only leave feedback as a seller when it is left for me. Just b/c you paid on time does not make it a positive transaction.

Senario- You pay on time, but when you get the items don't contact me for 2 weeks and then open a paypal claim saying items not as described. I have pics of when they left my house and everything was perfect...now items are stained and have dog hair all over them (which we do not have)...this is no longer a positive transaction for me, and is EXACTLY why it says that once feedback is left it cannot be changed. (and this exact thing has happened before, not to me, but someone else posting here)

As a buyer, i tend to wait a few days so i can look over items and make sure i didn't miss anything. If i get it in the mail, do a quick once over, and then leave feedback...and then a get ready to wash it two days later and find the dress i just bought has a ripped seam, i'm SOL'd.

Re: Nobody leaves feedback?

Yeah I don't leave it first when I sell either. I make sure they receieved the item and leave me feedback then I leave them. But seems often when I have sold even people don't leave it so I don't leave them any then. I just don't understand how hard is it for people to leave feedback. Then again people are flaky whether on Craigslist, ebay, online yard sales, or even here ...

Re: Nobody leaves feedback?

sorry


(and in general for anyone: If I owe you feedback, just message me! I try to do it as soon it's left for me or when i receive something, but sometimes i forget or think i already did!)
