Re: Problems with Xenon dealer?


This is crap.
97.4 is a poor feedback score. Any reputable seller that deals above board and tries to please there customers will have a feedback approaching 100%
I know a dishonest asshole seller personally that has one of these 97.5 feedbacks.
Read the comments and judge for yourself.

You should be replying to mjc. You are actually agreeing with me. Please see the rest of my comment if you wish to see my feelings on subpar sellers.
The FB number "97.5%" was chosen for a very specific reason. Have a pepsi and relax!

That's just silly. What do you think the feedback is for retailers like Best Buy or Circuit City? Go check out Bizrate.com that solicits feedback for online purchases and you'll see these major stores have about an 85% satisfaction rating. Given the venue of Ebay and that a lot of stuff sold is used, a 97.4% feedback is pretty damn good. You can't please everyone, no matter what. I was recently looking at a Ebay vendor who had a rating of about 97% that was a large volume closeout shop, selling returns, open boxes, etc from major retailers. I took a look at the negatives he had and the second one was from a guy who paid $275 dollars for a used notebook PC. Pulled up the description, and there are disclaimers all over the place. Like, unit has no power supply, never powered it up, don't know if it works, has a few cracked keys, sold as is, no warranty, no returns, etc. So, the jerk buys it for $275 and then is pissed off because it doesn't work and the vendor won't refund. Who's fault is that?

Nonsense. Look at reputable sellers. Look at there feedback scores.
If you plainly post that something is as it is, and someone is too stupid to read it, that might get you negative feedback, true, but it isn't credible feedback.
Read the specifics of sellers feedback to gain a picture of what is up.
There are many fine sellers with thousands of transactions under there belts with feedbacks over 99. This proves your theory is shit.

Did you bother to take the time to go look at the feedback on Bizrate.com for Best Buy, CircuitCity, CompUSA as I suggested, or are you just too lazy? If you did, you'd see they have overall positive feedback of 85%. Does that make them unreputable? According to you it would.
And I guess you don't realize that all feedback gets counted, whether it's credible or not. Anyone who thinks 97.5% positive feedback on Ebay is poor either hasn't done much on Ebay or else is in dreamland. Most established and successful reputable retailers have satisfaction ratings well below your magic 99%, which if you had any business sense, would realize is perfectly normal.

This is pure bullshit.
Most succesful and established ebayers that are reputable have feedback scores over 99% Doing lots of successful transaction gets you there, despite the idiots.

I agree completely, the quality of the actual feedback messages must be considered especially when dealing with someone who hasn't done a ton of transactions.
