Ok, short background. I bought an item (small, could have been sent in a business type envelope) from a new seller w/about 6 positive fb's not too far from me back on 11/24 (and paid minutes after it ended). I figured I'd get it quick since they were only a couple of zip codes away...but day after day went by and I never got anything. So I email the seller on 12/9 to see what happened; they get back to me the next day saying, "oh oops, I forgot to send it out, I didn't realize anyone had won since it didn't get up past my opening bid amount." Um ok. Anyway, I wait a few more days and nothing so I email the seller again asking when it was sent. They said they mailed it that Tuesday (12/11) and since I'm not far away, I should get it soon. Well I didn't. And still haven't. Anyway, I emailed them AGAIN on 12/19 and got no response, so I opened up a paypal case on 12/20, they didn't respond so I escalated it to a claim on the 23rd. Still no response and the deadline for their response is tomorrow. My question is, is this like the NPB's from eBay where they can't leave feedback for you if the case is decided in your favor? I know if you have a non-paying bidder alert open and they never respond, you can leave them feedback but they can't leave it for you. I'm not afraid of retaliatory feedback, I'm just wondering if this is the same since it went through Paypal's system and not eBay's.
