Should eBay Give Negs to Nonpaying Buyers?
I have been an eBay member for over 20 years and eBay seller for over 9 years. Buyers do not pay for various reasons, even though it is simple to have the transaction canceled.
Buyers can look at a seller's feedback, but a buyer's feedback, if the buyer is not also selling, is 100%. Non-payers are a problem no matter what percentage of total sales they are. A seller loses a sale and income, and eBay loses fees.
Not all sellers set up their sales to have eBay cancel a transaction after nonpayment.
My suggestion is that eBay create a new feedback reporting system for buyers. If the transaction is canceled due to nonpayment, then the buyer's feedback shows a negative 5% and says due to nonpayment with the date it occurred, and thus reducing the feedback.
A buyer's nonpayment should result in being blocked from eBay after 3 times within a six-month period.
If a buyer takes more than 5 days to pay, then the buyer's feedback shows a negative 2% and says due to late payment with the date it occurred, and thus reducing the feedback.
This idea will give seller's the opportunity to look at a buyer's feedback and decide whether to accept a buyer's offer.
