I soooo wish that 200! meant that I hit 200! items listed. But no. Not even close.
Instead, it means I surpassed 200! eBay feedbacks this week. For some reason this feels like a milestone to me.
My eBay profile tells me I joined way back in 1999. There was a period of a couple months in college when I was receiving almost daily packages in the mail from all of my eBay purchases. What was I buying? Many hard-to-find movies. On VHS. And I remember buying a complete set of NKOTB (baseball-like) cards. I mailed checks to pay for my purchases. Old school eBay. To the max.
After completing grad school in 2006 I rediscovered eBay via half.com as a way to unload all of my textbooks and make decent money doing it. I’ve sold books on half.com very (VERY) sporadically ever since.
And last August I started dabbling with selling items on eBay. In the last seven months I’ve added the 138 feedbacks that pushed me over the 200 mark. I know I’ve had many more sales than that though, over those seven months. And it makes me wonder – how does everyone else handle feedback? Right now I play the waiting game . . . if someone leaves me positive feedback I immediately do the same. If I don’t ever get feedback from a transaction, I never leave feedback for them.
Please share – what’s your SOP in regards to feedback?
