This is something that has been bugging me for a while. As a buyer, when I win something on eBay I pay immediately. Usually as soon as the auction ends. If I'm working or something it's later that same day. When I make the payment, I'm keeping up my end of the agreement in the eBay auctioning contract. I've been running across sellers that refuse to leave positive feedback unless I (the buyer) do so first. What's up with that??? Today a buyer emailed me (after I paid for my item the second the auction ended) that her habit is to wait until the buyer leaves positive feedback first. I emailed her back and asked if the function of feedback is to A) comment on how smoothly I completed my end of the transaction or B) comment on what I said about the seller. She said she would keep that in mind. Huh??? Has anyone else run across this? How do you handle these situations?
