Well, after 4+ years on eBAY, I finally left a not positive feedback -- I gave a guy a neutral. In the past, I have tended to merely not leave feedback if I had a bit of a problem. The vast majority of the time this had to do with raw cards being over-graded in the auction description and chalked it off to experience.

Here's the story

I hit BIN on a PSA-8 '68 common that I need (need it to x-over, that is!)

I sent a MO the same day

2 weeks later, no card -- I email the dealer and ask what's what...he confirms that he received payment and says it's in the mail

The next day I get a reminder from eBAY to pay for the card -- what?

I send another email asking what's what -- he asks me what I bought (?)

After going back and forth with the guy for another 2 weeks, I give up and tell him I'm busting him to eBAY. This is not #1 on my priority list, and I didn't know exactly how to bust someone on eBAY...so I didn't do anything.

2 days later, the card arrives -- post marked the day I told him I was going to bust him.

I was going to NEG him, but since I finally did receive the card, I though a NEUTRAL was appropriate. Did I wimp out? What would you guys have done?

In the end, you got the card you paid for. Of course, it was a lousy transaction and lots of headaches. I think the neutral was appropriate.

Neutral is appropriate. You paid promptly but only got the card after multiple email contacts, calls and hassles.

I would have given him a neutral, but waited until the last day for posting feedback (90 days?) to minimize the chances that he posts a negative in return.

So long as you haven't gotten "dinged" for your "beyond the call" efforts to satisfactorily complete the transaction ... then it's ancient history, and you can (and should?) choose to discontinue doing business with the guy.

Of course, you could identify the guy to the rest of us so that we watch our own backsides ...

srs1a,

I would have called the guy first, but I think you made the correct choice on feedback.

I would have left a neutral also. It sounds like this seller is trying very hard to get a negative, but if you're satisfied with the card I think you made a good call.
