why don't people leave feedback?

I am new here and just got started buy and selling. I have actually only made one sale and working on a couple of trades but I have bought several things and always try to leave positive feedback right away. I always pay right away and try to communicate quickly but so far I have only gotten 2 feedback ratings myself even though I have had like 6 or 8 transactions (can't remember at the moment) I figured at first I just hadn't given people enough time, but now I think people just forget and never get around to rating, or am I missing something? It would really help my credibility selling if the people I bought from would rate the transaction instead of just forgetting. And if I did something wrong I wish they'd pm and say something. Is there no way like ebay that people get reminded to rate a transaction? Should I PM the sellers and say anything in case I did something wrong or just let it go...?

Re: why don't people leave feedback?

In the very beginning when I was first trying to build feedback, I sent some pm's just letting them know that I was new, trying to build fb, and if they had time, I'd appreciate a rating

I don't do it now of course...LOL. But in your case, I def would

Re: why don't people leave feedback?

I had a similar question earlier, and a lot of mamas wait for the buyer to leave feedback and see that they're satisfied before doing anything. I would just drop a friendly reminder letting them know you had a pleasant transaction, would be happy to leave feedback, and would love it if they could as well to get your rating going

Re: why don't people leave feedback?

sell me wool and i'll leave feedback i leave feedback after a package is received. part of my feedback is if the person communicates well. i also like to see the day they shipped it...how long it took them to send the package after the money is sent. i have had packages come to alberta in one week. for international....that is crazy fast shipping! i will include that in my comments since canada shipping in a flate rate bag is almost the same amount as priority shipping in the u.s.a. very do-able. now about that yarn... j/k. good luck.

Re: why don't people leave feedback?

I feel ya. I've had about 7 transactions on here, only 1 feedback.

I'm not mad about it. But sometimes I worry when trying to purchase something that a seller will see I only have 1 feedback and hesitate to sell to me. I don't know if that's really a valid fear or not since I worry about everything anyway.

I just sent a PM asking them to leave feedback since I was trying to build my ratings. All the mamas were happy to leave me feedback.

Re: why don't people leave feedback?

Most of the time, people just forget. We are all busy moms and I know sometimes I will have as many as 15 or more buys/sells/trades going on at once. I don't mind a friendly reminder.
