eBay Gives Fashion Sellers a Pass on Feedback
eBay recently sent an email to users that prompted some letters from readers. The email came from "Svpply <eBay@email.events.ebay.com>" with the subject line " Free shipping + guaranteed returns—shop Designer Collective."
It advertised sellers in its designer collective, Cynthia Vincent and Kenneth Jay Lane. But it wasn't the marketing eBay was doing on behalf of those sellers that had users perturbed. Take a look at two letters from readers to see what prompted them to write.
How does this seller (Cynthia Vincent) get away with having no feedback to account for? Not fair to the many other "fashion sellers" that have to deal with DSRs and feedback.
This action by eBay can lead them to unfair trade practices because it's not conducting business in a fair manner with everyone and essentially picking winners. This can finally be the angle to go after eBay in a lawsuit.
Seems like the uneven playing field on eBay has expanded AGAIN.
eBays fashion partners get to have their feedback scores hidden (you can find them if you drill down into their history though) what gives?
