First off... if this is inthe wrong spot, please punt it to the appropriate location. I need to ask this of regular ebay sellers: "Why do you not leave feedback for your buyers until they leave feedback for you?" This only came up as I've started emailing sellers once I receive the item to thank them, but due to the fact that others have neglected to leave feedback I will wait until it has been left for me. The last seller came back with, "I absoultely refuse to leave feedback first..." I've lost out on many feedback points because sellers either forget (even after a friendly reminder... and to be fair, I am guilty of this myself) or are too lazy to leave feedback. As far as I'm concerned, once you receive payment for the auction, the buyer has completed his/her part of the contract and is entitled for feedback. I just need to understand why this rarely happens? Can anyone clear this up for me?
